Restoring the Sacred Trails of Our Grandmothers:

10 Years of Feeding the Fire to End Violence

Against Native Women

  

April 5 – April 7, 2016

Shooting Star Casino & Hotel, in Mahnomen, MN

Join us for our upcoming Restoring the Sacred Trails of Our Grandmothers: 10 Years of Feeding the Fire to End Violence Against Native Women conference, which is a 2½ day event. 

It is our TENTH year of presenting the Restoring the Sacred Trails of Our Grandmothers Conference, and we are going back to the location that hosted our very first conference – the White Earth Nation!  This special year will be a culmination of 10 years of Advocates, Service Providers, Community Members, and Survivors, building and feeding our collective fire to end violence against Native women.  We are seeking workshops that offer an intersectional approach to anti-violence work.  Workshops that encourage participants to bring the fire back to their community, or create the spaciousness needed to keep the fire going.  We are very excited to be co-sponsoring this conference with the Sacred Hoop Coalition and Men As Peacemakers.

The conference runs from 9am on April 5 to Noon on April 7. On the first evening, April 5, we will be having a fun, themed, Self Care Carnival, and Moccasin Game! On the second evening, April 6, we will be having a pow-wow to honor Survivors of domestic and sexual violence, women and children used in prostitution, and our missing and murdered sisters across Turtle Island.

Everyone has a role to play in Feeding the Fire to End Violence Against Native Women.
