The Ohen:ton Karihwatehkwen is the central invocation, one of the most sacred teachings of the Iroquois Indigenous Confederacy. A profound declaration of gratitude towards the natural world, "The Words Before All Else" are one of the most sacred teachings of the Iroquois Indigenous Confederacy. The Haudenosaunee Peoples still live by the original instructions; following the duty to live as One, in balance and harmony giving greetings and thanks to all things and to each other. Erika is honored to share this sacred practice with the ŌMies. These words are the energetic foundation for all life to exist in harmony & all beings to live in balance.
If you are interested in deepening your connection with the natural world and bringing energy of gratitude into your life; this practice is for you!
