MANATAKA - Place of Peace

Welcome to MANATAKA

For thousands of years this sacred site was known as Ma-na-ta-ka® (Place of Peace – the Unbroken Circle). Elders of many nations from the four corners of Turtle Island made long pilgrimages to this magnificent place to perform ceremonies and share the gift of the curative waters called No-wa-sa-lon (Breath of Healing). They received other special gifts like healing stones, healing clay and healing herbs to enhance their journey through life.

Read the fascinating and true saga of Manataka® and see how hundreds of tribes, Spanish Conquistadors, two American Presidents, Mayan and Lakota spiritual leaders, and the Rainbow Woman all played a role in the exciting “Story of Manataka”.

The Manataka America Indian Council® exists to preserve and protect this sacred place. Welcome to our village! Please come into our lodge and enjoy the gifts we have for you.
