What is Winter Solstice?

The winter solstice is the day of the year when the sun is at its lowest point in the sky, resulting in the shortest day and the longest night of the year in the Northern Hemisphere.

For Indigenous people, our teachings come from the natural world and universal laws. We understand the interconnectedness of all things and that the sun, moon, stars, and other planets affect us and connect us.

The winter (and summer) solstice has been celebrated by our Indigenous ancestors since time began, bringing families together for special ceremonies or other, simpler ways of observing the solstices. Some Tribal Nations have maintained teachings about the solstices, while others are trying to revive the teachings, practices and ceremonies that were forcibly taken or coerced away.

The winter solstice is a time to reflect with deep intention, to care for our spiritual selves, bodies and minds, our loved ones and families, and to prepare for the longer days ahead.
