Grandfather ~We return thanks to our mother, the earth, which sustains us. We return thanks to the rivers and streams, which supply us with water, to all herbs, which furnish medicines for the cure of our diseases, to the moon and stars, which have given to us their light when the sun was gone, to the sun, that has looked upon the earth with a beneficent eye. Lastly, to the Great Spirit, in Whom is embodied all goodness, and Who directs all things for the good of Her children. ~ Iroquois

‘Go where the Mother’s blanket heals you, where she gives you new dreams ..if you learn to live in these places, you will live through these times…this is the time to relearn how to live with the Earth. It is a time to honor Spirit. to listen to the Mother, to reawaken our emotional awareness so we can communicate with the higher octaves of reality, upon this sacred egg we call…Earth.’

‘Some day the earth will weep. She will beg for her life, she will cry with tears of blood. You will make a choice, if you help her or let her die, and when she dies, you too will die.’

‘When one sits in the hoop of the People, one must be responsible because all of creation is related and the hurt of one is the hurt of all and the honor of one is the honor of all.’

‘White Buffalo Calf Woman’


I was asked to create this painting for a collective of women coming together to support/embody the energy of white buffalo calf woman. I am very excited about what is happening here. ‘This is a calling of women of peace from all walks of life to join hands and come together as a collective to support a humble movement of the Original People of the world.’



“When the council of original seed issued by the Mother called upon the four elements ~ air, water, earth and fire ~ to Unity ~ life came to be on planet Earth. Now today, the Mother is calling humanity ~ to Unity.” ~ Kogi, Arhuaco, Wiwa, Kankuamo, the four peoples of Gonawindwa, Columbia

We, the International Council of Thirteen Indigenous Grandmothers, affirm our relationship to Mother Earth and our responsibility to future generations to raise our voices to speak for the protection of the lands and water.

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 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 hereby join and are in full support of the humble movement of the Original People of the world. This movement initiated by the Kogi Elders of La Sierra

Nevada de Santa Marta, Colombia, is bringing together in ceremony all the indigenous elders from ancient lineages with unification ceremonies uniting South America to North America and then bridging to Africa and beyond.

We recognize that these gatherings of the elders to have dialogue is

a basic fulfillment of agreements that have been passed down for generations and wisdom that is now ready to be shared. For, it is through the gatherings the hidden wisdom that Original People have protected for millennia is now being brought forth for the benefit of all life.

Furthermore, we support the aim of the gatherings to empower the Indigenous spiritual people to engage in an unprecedented collective action towards the realization of the Original Instructions which is to bring a spirit of inspiration, collaboration, compassion and hope into existing networks and planned international events focused on preservation of life on Mother Earth.

Finally, the Grandmothers support the call to come together in the spirit of cooperation for the greater good of humanity to pool our resources and create the vessel for these sacred gatherings to occur. This is a journey we are all a part of and will continue to unfold for many years to come.

For This We Pray,

International Council of Thirteen Indigenous Grandmothers

You hold my soul in your fierce gaze. I have made eye contact with eagles several times. It makes you glad that they aren’t any bigger. Penetrating. Like they can see your heart beating inside your chest. They are ferocious and the gold eagles…larger than the bald…..actually singly kill wolves on the Steppes.

A shield serves as a sacred spiritual protection. My friends Alice and Mike have some raven friends who visit them on their deck daily. They always have stories to tell about their ravens and it makes me wonder if the birds are there in some kind of protecting capacity.
