"Jessica, I just wanted to thank you for the great work you are doing connected with the Pequots, and the very fine story you wrote for the Society for Shamanic Practitioners. Everything you wrote down rings completely true, and I am very pleased to know of your work. Take care, and just wanted to let you know you are appreciated. May you have a good successful life continuing your work."

This is a sacred ceremony to honor the local Pequot Tribe, and join in a circle of healing for all ancestral ties of all of the victims, perpetrators, and land spirits, connected to this war. This ceremony is being held on the anniversary of the "Great Swamp Fight" - one of the largest and most impactful Native American battles in the history of New England - that finally ended in Fairfield (Southport), Connecticut, on July 13, 1637. We cannot forget to honor the Natives who sacrificed their lives and their land. They were the first people, and they were greatly wronged on so many levels. We cannot change that the Pequot War happened; however, we can offer honor and respect for all involved. This ceremony will include shamanic healing work for all victims, perpetrators, and the land, including healing for our own ancestral ties to these entanglements. We will be honoring the Spirits in various forms. Jessica Hunter has been working with healing work connected to the Pequot War for many years. Her focus is to bring awareness, healing, and respect for the first people in our local area, their ancestors, the land, and all involved in this war, through sacred ceremony. She facilitates this ceremony each year to honor this.
