The prayers service would take place Tuesday 20th & Wednesday 21st August near Forest Road.
There are different ceremonies according to the season of the year and traditional calendar, every ceremony is very important to complete the cycle of life that begins when the sacred Maiz is planted and ends when the pilgrimage is completed during the Hikuri Fest.
This fire prayer is a healing ceremony in which the Marakame invites the sacred Spirit of the Deer, Kayumari, to work and heal you from the heart.
