Faiths and Feminisms Film Screening: "For the Next 7 Generations"

Event date: 
Tuesday, March 2, 2010 - 12:00am to 2:00am

Join us for a very special Faiths and Feminisms Program as we view For the Next 7 Generations, a film which documents
the momentous journey of 13 Indigenous Grandmothers, as they travel
around the globe to promote world peace and share their indigenous ways
of healing.  Originating from all four corners, these 13 wise women
elders, shamans and medicine women, first came together in 2004 at a
historic gathering in Upstate New York.  Motivated by their concern
for our planet, they decided to form an alliance: The International
Council of 13 Indigenous Grandmothers. The film begins at their first
gathering follows them to the Amazon rainforest, the mountains of Mexico,
throughout North America, and to Dharamsala, India, for a private meeting
with the Dalai Lama.  Facing a world in crisis, the Grandmothers
share with us their visions of healing and a call for change now, before
it’s too late. Through their teachings, they are lighting a way to
a peaceful, sustainable planet.

We are thirteen indigenous grandmothers. . . . We are deeply concerned with the unprecedented destruction of our Mother Earth, the atrocities of war, the global scourge of poverty, the prevailing culture of materialism, the epidemics that threaten the health of the Earth’s peoples, and with the destruction of indigenous ways of life.
