Rites of Passage – Transition from Boys to Men

The Deer Tribe Metis Medicine Society is sponsoring a First Seed Ceremonial Weekend, featuring the Rites of Passage ceremonies honoring, celebrating, and enhancing the transition from boyhood to manhood, on the weekend of August 20-22, 2010.

This ceremonial weekend, to be held in northeastern Arizona, is open to young men, ages 11-15. The weekend will offer the First Seed Rites of Passage Purification Lodge and Medicine Naming Ceremony. These are the first two ceremonies in a series of Rites of Passage Ceremonies within the Sweet Medicine SunDance Path that mark and celebrate this journey and passage for young men.

Parent(s) and/or guardian(s) are encouraged to attend with their young man.  Please discuss these arrangements with the registrar.

Registration deadline is July 20, 2010.

For more information, including registration information, see the First Seed Rites of Passage Ceremonial Weekend page, or send email to the event registrar at  ritesofpassage@dtmms.org.
