Women's History Month - Thirteen Indigenous Grandmothers
During Women’s History Month, it is important for us to recognize the trailblazers who came before us, as well as those who are making a difference today. We are especially excited to talk about a very special community of grandmothers who share a very similar vision to us here at Sister Sky
The Thirteen Indigenous Grandmothers comprised of elders from all over the world, came together for the first time in 2004, to form a global alliance. Their alliance is one of, “prayer, education, and healing for our Mother Earth, all her inhabitants, all the children and for the next seven generations to come.” Concerned with the destruction of Mother Earth, they are committed to protecting our Earth.
Like the Thirteen Indigenous Grandmothers, Sister Sky believes in the healing properties of our traditional and natural ingredients, and must be protected for our future generations. Long ago, before medical technology was available, pioneer doctors relied on our traditional and natural ingredients, along with the knowledge of nature to treat many different ailments. These resources and teachings are very important.
Today, we want to recognize and honor these women who have come together to protect our indigenous ways and resources. This kind of work is not easy but is necessary. On their website, you can read about each grandmother, learn about their mission and read about all the work they have done.
Visit their website below, and tell us what you think about their work.
