We are a multigenerational, youth-led model by and for indigenous and non-indigenous women based on mentoring relationships and principles of unity, solidarity, justice, sharing, and respect.
Seeding Sovereignty honors the fact that Indigenous sovereignty prioritizes the rights of the Earth, of Plants, Animals and coming generations, and views their role as sovereign people as protectors of all those who cannot speak, of their communities, honoring the life force that moves through everything.
Seeding Hubs of Communication
Dominant recorded history (and current dictionary definitions) of sovereignty view life as a hierarchy of service and social cast. It views Mother Earth, her children, the animals and plants as resources to be used to reenforce a system of power and dominion, focused on individuals.
We hold space for Native voices to redefine what sovereignty means for life, in order to inform and empower the rising resistance to the corrupt colonial version of sovereign power. We recognize Indigenous sovereignty as true sovereignty, that which supports and honors life for all.
We support this process through collaborative action that honors this paradigm shift, to create lasting understanding and change. We provide a platform for those who are exercising Indigenous Sovereignty and tackle direct threats to that emerging process.
We honor the skills, time, sacrifices and experience of all contributing members of this organization. Working cross-culturally we are creating lasting change.
You carry Mother Earth within you. She is not outside of you. Mother Earth is not just your environment. In that insight of inter-being, it is possible to have real communication with the Earth, which is the highest form of prayer.

Although Standing Rock resistance camp ended, the Elders have called on us all to spread the spirit of the movement to "Standing Rocks," the resistance camps of frontline communities that have emerged to fight fossil fuel extraction to protect mni wiconi, the water, while advocating to end the fossil fuel era.

From the perspective of the winged we will be able to cover more ground, offer farther-reaching insight, and tell a more complete story. It is not easy to look, but the truth must be told. We will incorporate inter-generational narratives with this program, engaging and empowering women with flight.
