On behalf the Taino People and Nation represented by the United Confederation of Taino People (UCTP), it is our hope that this message finds you in good health and Spirit. We are writing to acknowledge the Summer Solstice of 2006. For people around the world, especially many Indigenous Peoples, the Equinoxes and the Solstices are import times for prayer, reflection, and unity.
At Sunrise and throughout the day on June 21st, the Solstice for 2006, people will pray and meditate on World Peace, and healing for humanity and Mother Earth. Various events marking this special time will take place internationally, and in solidarity with Chief Arvol Looking Horse of the Lakota Nation, we urge all to embrace the theme of World Peace and Prayer Day - “All Nations, All Faiths, One Prayer".
Oma'bahari (With respect),
