Our First VIRTUAL Medicine Gathering was a great success!

Thank you all so much for participating.

 

Although we missed seeing everyone in person, we learned a ton

and we were able to hear from people who might not have been able to make the journey to Oxbow Park here in Portland Oregon.

 

With the evacuations from the wildfires that uprooted many of us this year, the threat of Covid 19, and political uprisings,

most of us are facing true UNCERTAINTY about what is to come.  

Receiving guidance from our elders, extending support for each other, and finding unity is so very important in these time.

 

HUGE THANK YOUs

to our beautiful elders!

Who overcame the technical challenges and answered the call

to be with us. 

They shared their medicine of wisdom and encouragement,

for the healing to continue in a loving and kind way 

for all the generations past present and future.   

Pilamayaye  Mitakuye Oyasin!

Pacific Northwest Council of Water Protectors

We envision a regional Medicine Gathering of Indigenous and allies to continue protection of our sacred waters and to teach self-sufficiency for our families. We are a coalition of Indigenous and non-Indigenous supporters who carry forward the fire that began at Standing Rock to protect our sacred water and maintain the sovereignty of tribal nations. The council is guided by our Indigenous Elders on organization protocols, spiritual practices, and direct actions by council members. Our Indigenous Elders model respect and take the lead in all sacred ceremonies. We decide on fundraising strategies and which Indigenous communities to support through fact-finding and group consensus, with guidance from our Indigenous Elders. We welcome like-minded and dedicated individuals who seek to protect our Earth Mother and the spiritual beings and relatives gifted by our Creator. This year, we are partnering with the Future Generations Collaborative.

 

Future Generations Collaborative

A local effort in Multnomah County to reduce substance affected pregnancies in the Native community. The FGC understands the lasting impacts of historical and intergenerational trauma as well as the impacts of neuro-trauma and through awareness, education, opportunities for healing and policy work, the FGC strives to help those impacted with Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD), to help systems better serve those with an FASD, to help change community norms around alcohol and to help prevent FASD’s by promoting healthy pregnancies and families.
