International Council of Grandmothers

I don’t do emoticons or text-speech…but…OMG!, how much do I love them?!?

WE, THE INTERNATIONAL COUNCIL OF THIRTEEN INDIGENOUS GRANDMOTHERS, represent a global alliance of prayer, education and healing for our Mother Earth, all Her inhabitants, all the children, and for the next seven generations to come. We are deeply concerned with the unprecedented destruction of our Mother Earth and the destruction of indigenous ways of life. We believe the teachings of our ancestors will light our way through an uncertain future. We look to further our vision through the realization of projects that protect our diverse cultures: lands, medicines, language and ceremonial ways of prayer and through projects that educate and nurture our children.

The grandmothers are from Nepal, Montana, Alaska, Mexico, Brazil, New Mexico, Tibet, Brazil, 2 from South Dakota, Oregon, Arizona, and Gabon Africa. Their commitment to Earth Medicine is inspiring, and, at the very least, healing…but more likely absolutely transformational. They aren’t just chanting in the woods, these women at the pinnacle of power have gone to the Vatican to coach the Pope on the appropriate revocation of edicts regarding indigenous peoples. They support and fund children’s villages, nun’s projects, political prisoner programs, endangered species protection, drug abuse programs, artisan cooperatives, and more.

We ignore this widom at our own peril and loss. No kidding.
