 The Indigenous Women's Network (IWN) was established in as a grass roots initiative at a gathering of over 200 Indigenous women at Yelm, Washington in 1985. The (Founding Mothers ) were and continue to be strong, committed Indigenous women activists who dedicate themselves to generating a global movement that achieves sustainable change for our communities. Under their visionary leadership, IWN has become known for inspiring, strategic, pro-active and affirming events that facilitates the inter-generational transfer of traditio

nal knowledge to young, Indigenous women. Our training programs and publications reach and link Indigenous

women around the world in a network of support that includes award winning artists, activists, authors, community leaders, educators, attorneys and traditional healers.

Signature Programs - Triennial Indigenous Womens Gathering
Sunday, 22 March 2009

From July 31 – August 2, 2009 Alma de Mujer will host the first of three (3) annual state-wide activist gatherings. The Gathering will bring together up to 30 Indigenous women/women of color activists, activist scholars and organizational leaders whose work focuses on three sectors of our social justice movements: immigration, Native sovereignty and environmental justice. The purpose of this gathering is to foster inter-generational dialogue and cross-sectional critical analysis across different branches of our social justice movements in an effort to strengthen our collective capacities, our social and political networks, and to promote resource sharing.

 

The program will include a dialogue developed to stimulate intersectional analysis across three critical issues in our social justice movements. It is our hope that this dialogue will serve to uncover gaps and overlaps in our work, as well as to identify untapped resources, and to strengthen the movement overall. Alma de Mujer serves as a critical location, not only for the historic role it has played in Indigenous women’s leadership, but also because the land is healing land, and offers a quiet and safe space for women to rest from the on-going toll our work takes on our bodies. To this end, Alma de Mujer will also be providing holistic health services (acupuncture, yoga, massage & reiki) for all attendees. The cost is $40-$60 sliding scale and covers the cost of food & lodging for the weekend.

Sustainable Communities: Alma de Mujer’s Sustainable Communities program serves Austin area low-income Indigenous youth and their families by providing educational field trips for schools and community groups, summer week-long Environmental Learning camps, and through the implementation of its Medicine Garden programs. The camps will focus on teaching youth, ages 7 to 17 about Native approaches to Environmental Stewardship and Native Approaches to Health and Healing.

 

In 2009, Alma de Mujer established an on-site Medicine Wheel Garden based on the Nahui Ollin and traditions of the South. The Medicine Wheel Garden serves as a fundamental education tool for our communities to learn about Indigenous approaches to Health and Healing. The Medicine Garden program takes this knowledge out into Austin’s communities through the building and development of “Medicine Gardens” at key locations. In 2009, Alma de Mujer will build Medicine Gardens in collaboration with People in Defense of Earth and Her Resources (PODER), Resistencia Bookstore/RedSalmon Arts and Monkey Wrench Books. As part of this program, Alma de Mujer will host health and healing workshops for Austin’s community.
