“Moment” Organizers Choose Native Sacred Site in Hot Springs
Hot Springs, Arkansas – On October 20, 2012, several thousand pilgrims are expected to arrive in Hot Springs for a massive prayer event being called “The Moment”. Called a “Planetary Pentecost” by Rev. David Hulse, founder of the RISE Wellness Center, Hot Springs, this event is expected to draw global attention and attendance.
The event will take place on and around Hot Springs Mountain, long known as a Native American sacred site called Manataka or Place of Peace. The area known as Manataka encompasses Hot Springs Mountain, Indian Mountain and West Mountain, referred to as the Three Sisters by First Nations People. This area was a gathering place for indigenous nations for thousands of years prior to the explorations conducted by the Spanish and the French. The area was heavily mined for novaculite, a stone which could be shaped into a very hard sharp edge for spear tips and cutting tools.
But it is Hot Springs Mountain that is most associated with the Place of Peace. Although it is hard to imagine today with the bath houses and tourist shops on the west side of the mountain, prehistoric peoples and early explorers beheld a place of wonder here.
Hot water issued forth from over 50 springs down the side of the mountain from as high as 187 feet. The springs were surrounded by mounds created by the mineral deposits from the springs. These white mounds were streaked with red iron oxide. The overall exotic landscape caused one writer to think mistakenly that the area had volcanic activity.
These springs were known for their healing and rejuvenating properties throughout the Americas. It was a strange and foreboding place, rich in flora and fauna. This was considered a sacred place, a place given special attention by Creator. Many tribes told stories of this strange place called ‘the Place of Peace’ in their own languages. This was a place acknowledged as important to all people and all people were allowed to travel there for their physical and spiritual needs without fear of enemy interference. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
