Wel­come Win­ter In Dance, Song

MidWeek Islander (West Oahu) - - Front Page -

sol­stices, with smaller events dur­ing the spring and au­tumn equinoxes. The win­ter sol­stice gen­er­ally draws an at­ten­dance of more than 100 in­di­vid­u­als ready to con­gre­gate around the fire from dusk till dawn and lend them­selves to a va­ri­ety of cre­ative ex­pres­sions dur­ing the day, in­clud­ing art-mak­ing and “playshops” on yoga, med­i­ta­tion and any­thing else that tal­ent and in­spi­ra­tion of­fer.

The art-mak­ing has con­sisted of “ev­ery­thing from a com­mu­nity ban­ner to ran­goli (tem­po­rary art drawn on the ground with corn meal or col­ored sand) to mask mak­ing,” said Wall, adding that “wear­ing unique and col­or­ful adorn­ment is part of the fun, too.”

The camp en­cour­ages guests to stay for the en­tire six days and to be­come part of the func­tion by help­ing out from start to fin­ish. Gen­er­ally Tues­day and Wed­nes­day are set-up days, with the prime nights around the fire be­ing Thurs­day through Satur­day, with take-down Sun­day.

The west side makes for ex­cel­lent weather, but in the rare chance of rain, the fes­ti­val goes on, whether un­der a large tarp or in­doors.

Reg­is­tra­tion fees start at $20 and take into con­sid­er­a­tion the num­ber of days the per­son will be at­tend­ing, ac­com­mo­da­tions (tent or bunk) and meal plan, which ac­com­mo­dates var­i­ous di­etary needs. Folks also are wel­come to bring their own food.

Reg­is­tra­tion closes Dec. 12. Visit fire­tribehawaii.org to sign up or for more in­for­ma­tion.
