The Many Winters Gathering of Elders (MWGOE) Organizing Committee is excited to announce its 16th MWGOE, scheduled for Thursday, October 6 through Sunday, October 9,11am-6pm at Angels Gate Cultural Center (AGCC) in San Pedro, CA on Gabrielino-Tongva territory. The MWGOE is a four-day gathering where Native/Indigenous Elders and knowledge-keepers from across the country gather to share teachings through oral tradition with the community. The Gathering also hosts various Native ceremonies that take place throughout the four days. The event is free, family-friendly, open to the public, and held in partnership with AGCC.
The Gathering takes place under an arbor which serves as the traditional place of teaching and learning – where Elders pass on knowledge to the younger generation, which is part of intergenerational healing from historical trauma.
During the 16th Many Winters Gathering of Elders, no alcohol, drugs, cameras, pictures, video or other recording equipment are allowed; the MWGOE Organizing Committee requests that attendees respect and observe ceremonial protocol.
