Event description
Join the Asheville Nahua-tradition Weather Workers for our annual in-person traditional celebration of Weather and the abundant harvest!

About this event

Are traditional ways helpful during these times, when so much seems to be in upheaval? Called and initiated in the age-old lineage of quiatlzques and quiapaquiz (weather workers in the Nahua native tradition of Central Mexico), the Asheville Weather Workers are a group of people who have devoted their lives to their work with Weather and community. Attend this event to tap into the benefits of these valuable traditional ways of making relationship with the Rain, Sun, Lightning, Wind and Clouds.

Ancient Native ways are being revitalized and recognized anew in these times. These ancestral ways have held the balance between us human beings and the world around us for many ages. Now, in 2020, these eternal ways of working with the world can be rediscovered and practiced to unite all of us as a community, as we gather and give thanks for the balanced weather that provides the sustenance for us to live good human lives.

The gifts of Weather are easy to take for granted, unless we face drought or flood. Instead of waiting to be reminded, this year, let's gather on the beautiful, lush land of Sacred Fire Asheville, offer fruits from our harvest, eat and drink together, and express our gratitude for all the good things in life that are so easily lost. This is a way to honor the living world for the gifts that fill our lives every day.

North Carolina's official COVID guidelines will be observed. When you arrive, please wear your mask. Our event leaders will greet you and walk you through a process to ensure we enjoy our time together and prioritize everyone's safety at our event.

To donate in support of your local weather workers and the Sacred Fire Council House, venue for our festival, please PayPal to awhaynes@bellsouth.net
