Join Us For an Informational Town Hall Meeting

We welcome and invite: 
local residents of the towns around Malheur National Forest, 
members of the U.S. Forest Service, 
and individuals attending the Rainbow Gathering 
to join us for an informational 
at 6pm on Wednesday, June 21, 2017, 
at the Canyon City Community Hall.

The purpose of this meeting is to allow local folks to ask any questions they may have about the Gathering, and for Gathering participants to provide history and background information, health and safety practices, etc.

Town Hall Meetings are a great place for local residents to meet Gathering participants, ask and answer questions, and address concerns. 
This is an open meeting. We encourage all interested individuals in the communities surrounding the gathering to come meet with us and ask what ever questions are on your mind.

We hope to see you there!

  1. As a taxpaying Native American enrolled Tribal member I wish your gathering Peace.Native ways never have advocated the use of any mind altering substances. With the exception of a handful of certain Societies that use them in their proper context.Marijuana is NOT ever smoked or used to get "high".Please think and understand nothing ever good ever comes to people in a mind altered state. Seeing and thinking clearly comes to those in a sober mind. I realize many use drugs, and some do not.Dont buy in to Grass is natural trip, it's not. For Rastafarians in Jamaica yes, for people at a gathering NO. I plead with you to clean the whole area, Mother Earth is crying , please don't add to her hurt.I pray for your people a safe, peaceful ,non drug environment. World peace from our leaders in DC is a pipe dream, but does it have to be for us citizens? No, I know it's unrealistic that there will be alot of bad elements at your gathering.Just like my Reservation, or the world. May there be more positive, good elements to stop the bad ones. Peace.

  2. Thanks for your peaceful wishes . I am just an old man who is free as an elder to smoke a pipe , and perhaps I'm entitled to speak on and on for as long as I have breath . Have patience . I have never seen a lot of bad elements - though perhaps my eyes are protected by a kind spirit .


I look forward to comments that avoid racist, sexist, homophobic, and/or other 'ism' language that does not advocate violence.
