Nanomonestotse Preparations start on the third Monday of October.
This celebration of peace is supposedly a somewhat new holiday among some indigenous peoples of the Americas. It is said to have been started in the early 20th century by Marion Young. Marion wanted to pass on peaceful celebrations to later generations.
Nanomonestotse is then celebrated on Friday. Unless Friday is inconvenient, then the Saturday or Sunday will do.
The Nanomonestotse meal is a healthy meal with foods that are Native to that part of America. The model villages built during the preparations will be displayed as centrepieces around a nice candle.
