Sunrise Ceremony Is Sunday!

Native American Sunrise Ceremony

The Brochure for Earth Week Plus has the correct date: Sunday, April 28th at 6:30 AM. The Date for the Sunrise Ceremony celebrating our Earth was incorrectly noted as Saturday on the Adventure Page on this website, as was the Mill Creek Walk. They are both Sunday April 28th.


Take part in an authentic native American Sunrise Ceremony. Hear native American songs and ritual drumming. Take turns holding the eagle feather and share with the group; then walk around the campfire and put a pinch of tobacco in it. Hear the stories of the eagle staffs made by native Americans, and their connection to Cheboygan. Pass the pipe and smell the sweet tobacco aroma that has been a native American custom for hundreds of years. This is a celebration of nature and all are welcome to participate. Bring a dish to pass and learn about the spiritual heritage of out earliest Americans.

The ceremony will be at the home of Bill and Colleen Nash, 3.8 mile east of Indian River on M-68. Turn right on Dey Rd. (Just before Yogi Bear Campground) Go 1/4 mile, turn right on Seven Fires Trail. Go 200 feet to 2595 Seven Fires Trail, house on left. More information at 231-238-0898 or
