Ohén:ton Karihwatéhkwen

In oral tradition, the Rotinonhsyón:ni  “opens” gatherings of people with the Ohén:ton Karihwatéhkwen, commonly referred to as the “Opening Address” or the “Thanksgiving Address”. A more literal translation, in the words of Elder Tom Porter is “what we say before we do anything important”.
This ceremony acknowledges and recognizes the importance and relationship of all life forces in Creation. The purpose is to bring the minds of everyone at the gathering together as one.
There are many written versions, all reflecting the same purpose. In oral tradition, as the Speaker is speaking in the moment and from his heart, rarely will the exact wording be used each time it is conducted
