Elder Sages to the Indigenous Peoples and all Humankind and a Vision of our
Venerable Ancestors, the day when the Sounds of Eight Thousand Sacred Drums
join together will be the beginning of a true Healing of Mother Earth, of All
the Species and of the Human Family which is now in total disequilibrium in
order to be able to live together on the road to Sacred Peace, in harmonious
union with the Universe, Mother Nature, the Community, the Family and our own
Hearts. It is time to re-unify ourselves and rediscover for ourselves all the
Seeds of the Four Directions in order to reactivate cosmic energy, heal
historical wounds and heal our Mother Earth by respecting life and the liberty

CEREMONY OF 8,000 SACRED DRUMS
FOR THE HEALING THE MOTHER EARTH AND ENSURE PEACE AND LIFE
1. Blessing of the Sacred Drums. It will be a great blessing for Traditions
from around the World to be represented by the Drums at the Otomí Ceremonial
Center in Temoaya, State of México, Otomí Native Nation, México, taking part
together in the Grand Ceremony of 8,000 Sacred Drums to cure Mother Earth and
ensure Life and Peace (March 21, 2004) and the International Indigenous
In-Gathering of Sacred Drums (March 18-20, 2004).
2. The Spirit of 8,000 Sacred Drums. The prophecy of the ancestors of the
Otomí Native Nation, the Sacred Civilizatión of Silence, Sound, Time, Space and
Corn (Ñätho-Ñähñu-Ñuhmu-Ñuhu-Olmecas-Toltecas-Teotihuacanos), is an Awakening
of Indigenous Peoples and of All Humankind. We will come together to make the
Sound of 8,000 Sacred Drums (the number may be 8,000 times 8,000 worldwide) to
enable the Vibration of All the Sacred Drums to generate Mähki Ñithi (Powerful
Sacred Medicine) and Tsedi Pa (intensified Healing Energy) to Heal Mother
The messages from our wise elders (both men and women) also speak to us of the
need to transform drums of war into Drums of Peace and to recognize the
importance of the work for harmony and the peaceful resolution of conflicts
around the world.
To leave a message of Love and Respect for all forms of Life on the planet.
Life with Liberty, Justice, Dignity and Sacred Peace. To recognize that
Everything is Sacred, and that our mission is to work to ensure that our life
is in equilibrium with our families, communities, peoples, humanity, plants,
animals, air, earth, fire, the Cosmos and our own heart.
To present the option of Mother Earth and for Life and Peace as a legacy for
present and future generations.
3. Meeting Place. Notwithstanding the In-Gathering, the idea is that those that
cannot attend, in their thousands or millions, can connect with this Grand
Indigenous Ceremony. This is why, with all the love and respect of our heart,
we are inviting your Family, Group, Council, Collective, Association,
Community, or Native People or Nation of all regions and countries worldwide to
meet at some Sacred Place (a Valley, Desert, Jungle, Island, Lake, Forest,
Mountain, Cave, River, Waterfall, Ceremonial Center, Temple or special Site of
your own, at the Altar in your Home, your Cultural or Educational Center or
some other Meeting Place, such as a Public Square, Garden, or any other space
conducive to a Meeting.
4. Time and Date of Ceremony. The purpose is to join the Sound of the Sacred
Drums for an hour (60 minutes) at 12 noon (local time at every location on the
Planet) on March 21, 2004. Depending on your local capabilities and conditions,
you can begin your activities for one hour or 12 hours any time between dawn
and dusk, or activities may continue all day (for 24 hours).
5. Ways to Connect and Share. You can play and thereby connect with the sound
of the Sacred Drums or other similar percussion instruments. You can also
connect through other musical instruments, dancing and sacred chants; you can
hold a ceremony or rituals; you can meditate or pray in any language. You can
unite the drum of your heart with the drum of all Humankind. May all the power
and sacred medicine of the Sacred Drums come to us, unite us and bring us
together, reconcile us and heal us and bring joy to our hearts.
6. For the Earth, Peace and Life. Every Sister, Brother, Family, Group,
Council, Collective, Association, Community, Native People, Native Nation or
any other Tradition from every area on the planet can have activities before,
during and after the Grand Ceremony of 8,000 Sacred Drums. These activities may
be focused on the defense and respect of Mother Earth (jungles, forests,
ceremonial centers and sacred sites), Peace (for the collective rights of
Indigenous Peoples and of all Traditional Societies worldwide) and Life
(Equilibrium with animal, plant, mineral and human Life. Life is sacred and in
harmony and dignity with all living things).
7. Be in Touch. We ask you to be in communication with us. Let us know how many
Sacred Drums are involved from your home areas; let us know that we are
connecting with every place and region so that we will know about the
ceremonies, meetings, festivals, workshops, meditations, and ceremonial,
cultural and fraternal activities being held around Sacred Drums. May the
shimmering of light bathe us and may healing energy spread among everyone so
that we can feel, experience and share in peace and love at all times.
