White Bear Vision is a multi-media project presentation of Native American cultural traditions to happen initially in Belgrade and Bela Crkva, Serbia in the summer of 2015. Our mission is to educate and inspire in preserving indigenous peoples' wisdom in the face of a world quickly losing what it means to be a proper steward of the Earth. Our purpose is to bring together different voices and tribes worldwide for the sake of future generations.

This one week program in Serbia is a part of the Belgrade Mandala of Avalokiteshvara anniversary program.

The program will present:

Day one:

A documentary film presentation of legendary Hopi elder White Bear, who helped in the writing of Frank Waters' "Book of the Hopi," giving a tour of the holiest sites in the Hopi tradition, and how these sites relate to other holy sites of other indigenous tribes worldwide.

A lecture by Hopi elder Ernie Northrup, a member of the Hopi family who has been caretaking Prophecy Rock at Oraibi in Hopiland for 700 years.

Day two:

A lecture by Richard Calling Eagle, ethnobotanist and world-traveler who has been an initiate of the Skokomish people and close student of Subiyay, a great medicine man who was honored with a National Endowment for the Arts award for his single-handed efforts in preserving the culture of his people.

Ceremonial invocation by Donny Preston, traditional Tohono O'odham healer and shaman of the American Southwest.

Day three:

A lecture by Richard Pablo, a member of the Tohono O’odham nation, about border issues in the American Southwest and other issues related to the survival of indigenous peoples.

A poetry reading by Thomas Cox, sharing his experiences teaching on the reservation at the Tohono O'odham Community College and reading from his collection "A Stone Blessing," among other works, about the very valley where the College was built.
