FOR THE NEXT SEVEN GENERATIONS
Screening of "For the Next Seven Generations", the story of the International Council of Thirteen Indigenous Grandmothers and their mission to heal the earth will start at 6:30pm at the SHOP, yoga studio. Grandmother Council member Grandmother Mona will lead a discussion about the movie and about how local communities can be a part of global solutions for retaining our spiritual wisdom and for healing our environment. Local organizations will also be present to discuss how we can support our local community's conservation projects. Light snacks and beverages will be provided after the film while attendants enjoy the information tables and live music.
Mona, a Hopi/Havasupai /Tewa elder, has a Master of Social Work degree. She serves on several United Nations committees on indigenous people's issues and is a featured author, speaker, and educator on indigenous people's human rights, aging, mental health, addiction and violence. She is also the President/CEO and faculty of the Turtle Island Project, a non-profit program that promotes a vision of wellness by providing trans-cultural training to individuals, families, and healthcare professionals.
About the 13 Indigenous Grandmother Council: In the fall of 2004, we gathered from all over the world, thirteen indigenous Grandmothers from Alaska, North, South, and Central America, Africa, and Asia. We came together at the Tibet House Menla Mountain Retreat Center in upstate New York. Within three days we formed a Global Alliance for the Good of All Beings.
The Grandmothers 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.
