Mission

To empower and instill agency among Indigenous women, girls and communities, forever changing the trajectory of the MMIWG* crisis, saving lives one relative at a time.

 

House of the Moon's Facilitator Training program's curricula includes a comprehensive and systemic approach with the goal of reducing and eliminating MMIWG, restoring reverence to the Life-Givers, and healing and recovery of the people and communities this crisis has most impacted.  It is a holistic empowerment and self-defense training program designed for Indigenous women to directly reduce the epidemic of rape, murder and kidnapping for trafficking on reservations and in urban areas with large Indigenous populations. 

Description

This breakthrough facilitator training program is a “train the trainers” course, offering Indigenous women knowledge, support and resources to empower their innate leadership abilities and inherent strength and courage. Our Four-Directions holistic model to training includes Emotional, Physical, Mental and Spiritual empowerment and self-defense tools and practices based in Traditional Knowledge and Ways.

 

Following completion of the training program, facilitators who get trained in the curriculum will have the opportunity to create their own lesson plans based on the program's core values and framework.  They will then be able to bring the House of the Moon program to their respective Native communities by holding gatherings/classes.  They will learn how to facilitate either online or in-person gatherings (when circumstances permit) and lead gatherings/classes with their unique skill set and gifts.
