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.
