On Saturday, His Holiness Katok Getse Rinpoche performed a prayer for world peace on the summit of Mount Spokane. As part of the observance, I spoke briefly about the history of the Spokane Tribe. Those who attended the event were very moved. For my part, I felt honored to participate.
During the ceremony, I had the honor to sit with His Holiness and Lama Lakshey Zangpo Rinpoche.
His Holiness and I sat together after the ritual. He spoke to me through an interpreter and asked me questions about the spirits of our ancestral tradition.
