International Council of Thirteen Indigenous Grandmothers

Post by James Parton » Sun Dec 19, 2010 11:10 pm

The International Council of Thirteen Indigenous Grandmothers.

" 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 ".

Join Us in Stockholm!

Now we call all our Grandmothers and Grandfathers to come to a Council meeting in Stockholm! The meeting is honoring the Saami people and all Indigenous peoples.
I wonder since their meeting will be held in Stockholm this year if there will be anyone invited to represent the indigenous people of Sweden -- the descendants of the native Germanic people who followed the retreating glaciers and migrating game species north into the Scandinavian peninsula from Jutland/Germany more than 10,000 years ago.

I guess I need to come around more often.
They were not acknowledged in Sapmi by the Sami community.
