Another spiritual initiative showing how robust are these times: The 13 Grandmothers Council.
About the International Council of 13 Indigenous Grandmothers
The International Council of 13 Indigenous Grandmothers represents a global alliance of prayer, education and healing for Mother Earth, all Her inhabitants, and all the children for the next seven generations to come. The Grandmothers Council was brought together by a common vision, set in motion by the Center for Sacred Studies (CSS), a non-profit organization dedicated to sustaining indigenous ways of life through cross-cultural spiritual practices, ministry, and education, and committed to peace and unity for all peoples.
Our Mission Statement
We 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.
