We are deeply concerned
WE, THE INTERNATIONAL COUNCIL OF THIRTEEN 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 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.
We should be grateful to these wise women who speak out about the need to have concerns for our environment and for all living things. They speak the truth and we need to stop and listen. We should also be thankful that they are trying to redress the damage being done. If we ask, I am sure there will be things we can do to help.
