CREATING A PAHO - HOPI PRAYER OFFERING As we move through winter and approach the change in seasons, many First Nations pray for the return of light and warmth, the germination and ripening of seeds. They are mindful of the Creator’s plan for the road of life. Pahos, a Hopi prayer-feather stick, are a form of prayer offering. They are used in all religious ceremonies and prayers, as it represents the prayer itself. Pahos are often made in threes: one for the Creator, the next two for the sun and moon. In this gathering, you will have the opportunity to make a paho to welcome the energies of the new season. As we celebrate gently moving into Spring, what are your intentions for your health, well-being, abundance, joy, your homes and your animals? These are the intentions we add to the paho. Filled with your prayers and intent, it is then placed outside to send your prayers up to Great Spirit.
