Turtle Women Rising 2011
Sacred Earth: Many Beats, One Heart
Dawn, October 7 - October 10, 2011
bəsčətxwəd, Place of the Black Bear, 5th and Water Street, Olympia, Washington.
Join us at the "bus-chut-hwud” (pronunciation in Lushootseed) meaning (place of the) black bear, a gathering site (Potlatch) for many Coastal Salish tribes: Chehalis, Nisqually, Duwamish and Squaxin. Let our prayers restore this area, once an estuary, as we vision the ancient canoes coming back to this ancient gathering place. Come share this vision of peace. As the Elders tell us, it is time for us all to come together and share.
Turtle Women Rising is an Indigenous women-led collective committed to praying and playing well together for the return of peace and harmony to our Madre Tierra/Earth Mother. Individually and collectively, we vision women stepping up as guardians of the elements, and of the Sacred Fire.
We humbly ask all to consider making a tax deductible DONATION if you can at this time.We appreciate your financial support for our founder Eli Painted Crow and Turtle Women Rising in their upcoming endeavors. All proceeds will go toward our drum/prayer vigil in Olympia, Washington as well as our October 2012 vigil in Washington D.C.
If you have any questions about the 2011 drum/prayer gathering in Olympia or if you can lend a hand in organizing, please don't hesitate to contact:
