Cherokee Green Corn Moon


Recommended Posts

June Full Moon
Nv-da Se-lu-i-tse-i-yu-s-di (green corn/the corn is up), also known as De-ha-lu-yi or Ti-ha-lu-hi-yi is the Cherokee name for the full moon in June. It is the time that the corn is green and people get ready for upcoming festivals celebrating the growing season. People of the A-ni-ga-du-gi Society begin repairs on townhouses, and family homes and offer assistance to the needy. The A-ni-ga-du-gi Society is a group of volunteers who attend to the needs of the less fortunate, the elderly, and the sick. In the Northern Hemisphere, this moon is low on the horizon as the sun is at its highest point in the sky.
