IllumiNATURE: Dawn Dance of the Salmon

December 11th, 2015 -- By Christine Castigliano

Nature's sustainable ways lights our path to Climate Justice.

Join us in an intentional moment of beauty as we raise 350 illuminated Salmon Windsocks into the morning sky. Nature's beauty awakens our hearts to action. When Salmon thrive, life systems thrive.

WHEN: Saturday, Dec. 12
TIMES: Dawn Dance: 7:45 am + Daylight Dance: 10 am
WHERE: the Louvre (Place Carre, the smaller inner courtyard, accessible from the public street). Metro stops: Palais Royal/Musee du Louvre (line 1, Yellow and line 7, Pink)

We will meet at the courtyard of the Louve, join in circle, then flow with the salmon to traditional Native American flute. We will dance together twice: at 7:45am, when the Salmon are illuminated in the dark before dawn, and at daylight, at 10am, when more people can gather. Our wish is to get all 350 Salmon flying together.

We are a group of artists and activists from the Pacific Northwest of North America. We have brought our Salmon windsocks, made by hundreds of community members, to COP21 in Paris to illuminate issues related to Indigenous tradition, knowledge, and teachings regarding natural systems. Please join us!
