October 20, Friday
Nanomonestotse is an autumn celebration of peace, observed within some Native American families. The word "nanomónestôtse" (pronounced NAH-noh-MAH-nay-STOHT-say) means "peace" in the Cheyenne language.
Nanomonestotse traces its roots back to the early 1900s and a Native American woman named Marion Young, who is credited with passing the ideals of peace on to her descendants. Nanomonestotse Preparation begins on the third Monday of October. Nanomonestotse Celebration begins on the following Friday.
