World Peace and Prayer Day (Day 1 – Pt.2)
Air Date: 19 June, 2023
Established in 1996, World Peace and Prayer Day was created on the initiative of Chief Arvol Looking Horse of the Sioux Nation. It first gathered native people of North and South America, but spread to the rest of the world.
It’s celebrated on June 21st, the summer solstice, as it is believed to be a powerful time to pray for peace and harmony between all living beings. Regardless of origin, nation, religion and beliefs, everyone is encouraged to gather at sacred sites and pray: “All Nations, All Faiths, One Prayer.”
