Peaceful Gathering Place/ Aquene Mianau Ayeu  






A Gathering Place, A Spiritual Home, and Healing Center for All People.

(Director) Linda Morceau : Medicine Woman & Chief of the Chappiquiddic Tribe of Massachusetts. Certified Substance Abuse & Family Counselor.

The work that Peaceful Gathering Place will do, will be done by all of us, It will be something that has been needed for a very long time. A place to gather like our Elders have done in the past, a place to speak truth to one another. The programs fashioned by PGP will bring us all into a Family Circle. Any words spoken within the Circle will be heard in a loving manner and dealt with until a solution is found. The most important work for our Family Circle is to become a true Family as our Elders were.

We will discuss everything, no topic is off limits. Everyone will know they have found a home at Peaceful Gathering Place.

The goal of Peaceful Gathering Place, PGP, is to give all Native and Non - Native People a home. A place to feel welcome, a place for issues to be not only discussed,  but, also, solved.  


Peaceful Gathering Place, is a place for us to be True Family to one another, and to work together the way Creator intended.


The Circle is Now Open, let us speak to one another.





The founder of PGP has brought the message of Peaceful Gathering Place to a wider venue. She was invited to be the keynote speaker at the annual heritage meeting for the Department of Transportation. Chappiquiddic tribal members attended and brought along examples of beadwork, wood carving etc. (A DVD of the event is available from Peaceful Gathering Place.)The message was brought down Cape to the opening of the Native Archeological exhibit at the Highland Museum in Truro, Massachusetts. (Video selections are available on YouTube or in its entirety from Chappi Producions.)




The New Year - Everyone is welcome to attend. We hope to expand our Cirlce and the Topics of discussion.
Topics for discussion:   
Planting our garden, and since the larger plot of land has not been secured we will talk about garden sharing on a smaller scale, among ourselves, sharing seeds (organic or heirloom), and the crops themselves during the harvest season.    Those without regalia will be encouraged to make, help to make, or start buying pieces for this years Pow-Wow Season. Remember ladies your first piece of regalia should be your shawl, and gentlemen yours should be a ribbon or pioneer shirt, and Native Jewelry can be made or bought at Pow-Wow's.
We will address our diets and how we can make small changes now that will impact us in a good way down the road, we must bring ourselves back to the original diet of our People, we must come up with a food pyramid that reflects our needs and us as a Native People. 
Remember no topic is off limits, please don't hesitate to bring your problems or triumphs to the discussions.  Hope to see all of you at The Circle.
Peaceful Gathering Place will be putting out a cook book in the near future.  This cook book will serve many purposes, it will give those suffering from diabetes  recipes, these desserts will be made with a natural sugar that even diabetics can have.  The cookbook will also be used as a fundraiser for Peaceful Gathering Place bringing in monies that will be used to keep the Center open and will allow us to add new Programs.  Please keep checking back to this site, the publication date will be announced soon.

1 & 1/2   Cups Flour

Pinch of Salt

4 Tbls. Honey

1/2 Cup Butter (Cut into pieces)



Method:   Preheat oven 300 degrees

Grease a fluted tart pan, or cookie sheet (Pam or Butter)

Mix together Flour, Salt &  Honey

Add Cubed Butter and mix with finger tips or  pastry cutter until it forms a soft dough, and is still a little crumbly-do not overwork or shortbread will be tough.

Lightly press the dough into a lightly greased fluted pan, or roll out onto a greased cookie sheet (flute edges like pie crust)

Mark into 8 pieces and prick all over with a fork and Bake in preheated oven for 40-45 mins. or until shortbread is firm and has a little golden color to it. Sprinkle with sugar or cinnamon sugar if you like, or add a pinch cinnamon to 1/4 cup of Honey, stir, and brush this on  while cookies are still warm.   Let cool in pan for at least 10 mins. then cut into sections and cool completely on wire rackThese are great with tea or coffee, and they make a great crust for cheesecake in place of graham crackers.  Enjoy !!
