Happy New Year to the people of the Northern Hemisphere
Indigenous New Year in the northern hemisphere
In these days of December in the northern hemisphere, earth, nature and the universe, begin the renewal and initiation of new cycles of life and bring dreams and hopes. We invite everyone in the northern hemisphere to embrace it Wetripantu (the Mapuche new year)
The indigenous world is circular; based upon the movements of the sun. Based upon the energy that show the presence and absence of the sun creates in nature. The same cycle of energy can be noted in the perspective of a year.
In these days of December (21 onwards) in the Northern Hemisphere, the earth, nature and the universe, gave start to the renewal and initiation of new cycles of life.
The 2011 summer solstice (winter solstice in the Southern Hemisphere) occurred on December 22, at 12:30 AM Eastern Standard Time (EST).
Currently in the Western Hemisphere, the celebration of wetripantu is conditioned to the Western and Christian celebration. However, with our presence on this side of the Nuke Mapu (Mother Earth) we attempt to celebrate the Wetripantu as the ancestors of Mother Earth. Our aspiration is held in accordance with the natural norms. Make it a point of reference for the gathering with life in coexistence with earth, nature, spirits and time.
This date marks the renewal of natural cycles in this hemisphere and is not owned by one or another culture, but it belongs to all those beings (animals and humans) who were born and live together in this part of Mother Earth.
