- For the short story of the same name, see Ha'mara (short story).
Ha'mara was the Bajoran name for the time that the Emissary of the Prophets was among them that was predicted in several prophecies. (DS9 short story: "Ha'mara")
After 2369, a holiday was celebrated on the anniversary of Benjamin Sisko's arrival on Bajor. Out of gratitude to the Prophets, Bajorans were known to both fast on this day. In Ashalla, a large light show was known to take place though Captain Sisko was not known to attend. (DS9 episode: "Starship Down")
Bajoran schools close during Ha'mara to allow children to celebrate the holiday. (ST - New Worlds, New Civilizations short story: "A Walk in the Path of the Emissary")
