Spell A Day

Green Corn Ceremony

Spell Date:  Saturday, July 27, 2013
Color of the day:  Indigo
Incense of the day:  Pine
This Native American ceremony, held during the time of the Big Ripening Moon in late July/August, is a time of forgiveness and renewal, to awaken a sense of the sacredness of life. The Green Corn Dance or Ceremony was observed by many indigenous peoples, most notably the Cherokee or Tsalagi, and including the Creek, Seminole, and Chicksaw tribes. Traditionally all wrongdoing was forgiven at this time, and sacred objects, such as medicine bundles, were renewed and displayed.
The more festive part of the ceremony included singing and dancing, and was known as a puskita, although this eventually changed to busk in English. The busk was meant to show gratitude for the ripening corn and for the first harvest, and celebrated the community as they ate the first of the crop together. The late July moon is the perfect time to give thanks for the first harvest as we approach the Pagan festival Lammas.
