One Nations Earth Camp
The One Nations Earth Camp offers a chance for you to learn from our Native American Tribes about their culture, traditions and sacred ceremonies.
We are honored to have Chief Black Fox returning to Zen Awakening Festival for his 2nd Year in a row to lead us in Native American ceremony and songs.
Delbert Pomani also known as and “Chief Black Fox” is from the Crow Creek Agency in Fort Thompson, South Dakota. His mother was from Standing Rock, and his father- from Crow Creek. Delbert is a direct descendant of Sitting Bull, Crazy Horse, and Rain In The Face.
His name, “Black Fox,” was given following a vision that Delbert beheld the duty of “Uniting the Tribes”. Five years ago, when Chief Leonard Crow Dog of the Rosebud Reservation in South Dakota, initiated Delbert as a Chief for the Dakota Tribes, Chief Black Fox Pomani knew he was the one to work for and represent his people and native culture. Mission My mission is to help my people, Mother Earth, and humankind. The highest rate of suicide, drug and alcoholism is on our reservations. I want to make a difference by bringing hope back to my people and spreading awareness on how we can heal not only ourselves, but all nations, all people. The time has come be leaders once again. During presentations, I teach the ways of our ancestors and our elders. Ways on how we should and must care for Mother Earth and clean up our own backyards. We are in a time of great change and need to heal the diseases in our hearts. In 2011, I started a nonprofit called “The Indigo Bridge” with the vision to unite Indigenous Nations under the People of the Earth Treaty. Book your 3 day GA/ Camping ticket today for ONLY $144
