Inlakesh is a new festival to Ashland this year and I was invited to do a workshop. In addition, I had the honor of doing the opening ceremony with Grandma Agnes Baker Pilgrim of the 13 Indigenous Grandmothers at the same event. She loves my stone medicine bowl and used it last year for her annual Salmon Ceremony. She used it again this year for her Salmon Ceremony as well. I’ll combine pictures of both events.
I’m in the process of deciding whether I can leave to go to South Dakota for the 13 Indigenous Grandmother gathering in early September (and take the bowl with me of course).

Me and Grandma Aggie at opening ceremony for Inlakesh Festival. She’s a cutie-pie. And 91 I think she said.
A real honor to be able to do the water ceremony with her.

Some people attend as a couple, others I partner up in class. I asked that guy if he would be my demo partner. It wasn’t as scary as he thought it would be.
One of the movements in the series of postures I take everyone through.
This is my favorite communication posture.
