Council of 13 Indigenous Grandmothers

Do you know about these women?  Have you seen the film "For the Next Seven Generations?"

 here's their mission statement...

"We, the International Council of 13 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 the 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."

Do see the film (and fall in love with them and their mission) ...elder women are powerful forces worldwide!
here's the film's trailer...

OK, back to sculpting clay!

  1. I am so sorry the pictures of the pots and sculpture didnt' come out when I tried to cut/paste the poster for Eckerd College's show during NCECA. They will be great to see. My son is showing some wall hanging I a proud mama or what?
