Excerpt: "According to a Sacred Prophecy by Otomi Elder Sages, the day when the sounds of 8,000 Sacred Drums join together is the beginning of the healing of Mother Earth.

It is time to unify ourselves to rediscover the seeds of the Four Directions - to reactivate cosmic energy, heal historical wounds. It's time to respect life, liberty and the dignity of Our Peoples.

The first great ceremony was held March 21, 2004 in Temoaya, Mexico. Drum circles joined around the world on the Spring Equinox. This will continue each year until 2012.

Sacred Principles:

Seal and heal the wounded vertices of Mother Earth.
Identify and activate the Indigenous energy centers at sacred places, this is our duty.
Plant and strengthen consciousness of love and respect for our Mother Earth. This is everyone's work.

The Indigenous ancestral recommendation to create and practice our cullture of Peace and Life is fundamental.

Recognition of the use of the energy and healing are the properties of our sacred instruments." International Indigenous University
