A Lakota Prayer for the Well-Being of Humanity

Our Interfaith World Food Day service in Albuquerque started with a Lakota prayer led by Matthew Shoulders. He later joined with Michael Abeita of Isleta Pueblo in the singing of a traditional blessing. The Native American prayers preceded a blessing by Rabbi Min Kantrowitz on the first day of Sukkot, the Jewish feast celebrating the harvest. Participants processed to the santuary to experience prayers, reflections and songs from the Sikh, Buddhist-Bahai, Hindu-Protestant, and Catholic-Muslim traditions.
