Honoring Our Grandmothers: an Indigenous Women's Gathering

Start: Saturday, February 18, 201710:00 AM

End: Sunday, February 19, 201710:00 PM

As Women of Sovereign Nations, Lands, and Waters, we have been given the honor of caring for the earth, the water and all living beings on it. There are special teachings given to us by the Creator that have been passed down through every generation by our grandmothers.

As care takers of Unci Maka (Mother Earth) and Life-givers we hold a responsibility to secure the future for our children and the next seven generations to come.

We invite you to join us for a two (2) day gathering as we revitalize that tradition on a large scale for all the grandmothers, daughters and granddaughters to experience and defend our Children's future.

We welcome women of all Nations and ages to come together for this special time of prayer, teachings and unity here in Standing Rock, as a powerful movement to acknowledge the sacredness of Unci Maka, Mni Wiconi and the living grandmothers of the Oceti Sakowin.

We also encourage our husbands, brothers, fathers, uncles and other family warrior men to join us this weekend. There will be alternative trainings for them, as well other camp duties that need to be fulfilled that can contribute to the security of the gathering.
