Chamisa Local Council (New Mexico and Colorado)
We assemble at dawn and face the east to drum up the sun and welcome the spring. Dress warmly in layers, bring your drums and rattles, and get ready to have a very good time coaxing the first rays of light up over the clouds. At the time of the equinox, with day and night balanced, we focus on creating our own balance. The ritual is followed by a potluck breakfast nearby.
