The Traditional Girl's Moonrite is an all-night trial and rite of passage for young women who have reached menarche and their mothers (or other adult sponsors) that encourages responsibility, positive body image, empowerment through concrete accomplishments and community involvement, sisterhood, and introspection.

The annual Moonrite will be held this year, in the red tent behind the Connection Canopy, from 7pm on Friday through the morning of Saturday. The Rite is presented by Amazon Sisterhood, the women who have been through this Rite over the last twenty years. The Rite is funded by the Sisterhood and the community, there is no charge to the maidens or their families– this is our gift to the newest members of our community. 

Preparing and customizing the event for each candidate is a long process that can take months, so we ask that our candidates pre-register for the event. In order to provide the most personal Rite for each maiden, there is limited space available for candidates. Register early to ensure your candidacy!
