Wisdom from the Elders
In order to honor our Elders, as we know they hold the Wisdom to help us on our path forward. We will collect and feature Elders in the Indigenous community on Turtle Island who will share with us how we can come together, heal and rise from the MMIWG crisis. We want to thank them for leading the way in this movement to end the Murdered and Missing tragedy. We look to them for guidance and are so grateful to them for their love and courage. We value their sacred wisdom.
We are asking for anyone in the Native community in the U.S. or Canada to ask an Elder that you know and respect about our Murdered and Missing Relatives and the crisis we continue to face. Ask for their wisdom on how they think we can survive and rise above this crisis?
Ask for permission to either record or write down what the Elder shares. You can submit this video, audio or written summary along with the name, Tribe/First Nation, and if permitted, an image of the Elder to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We will post what we receive here on this site as a gathering of wisdom from our Elders across Turtle Island as a way to honor, listen and receive guidance from their sacred messages.
