Please join our First Cohort of the Warrior Men's Circle, which encourages healthy expressions of emotion in men. Creating a team, starting with our own indigenous community first. Men were the traditional protectors, this group will hold men accountable. Using indigenous values in our curriculum designed to tap into and restore imbalances in men. Our instructors are all men, and create safe spaces to work through tough emotions with the permission to begin their journey of growth. This happens every quarter.
Please fill out the information for the talking circles. Join us for the MMIW NC Community talking circles starting in November 2021. Why are we doing this? To tackle the issues in our communities, we need to hear from you. This happens every 4th Sunday, but sign up to look at the dates.
Talking circles, peacemaking circles, or healing circles, as they are variously called, are deeply rooted in the traditional practices of indigenous people.1 In North America, they are widely used among the First Nations people of Canada and among the many tribes of Native Americans in the US.
MMIW/G/2S/P Search Teams We are looking for volunteers to join our search team. When family members request we help them search for their loved ones, we want to make sure we come prepared.
The first goal of MMIW NC is to provide education against sexual violence to American Indian (AI) women and girls.
The second goal is to teach self-defense to women and girls in the community. Although self-defense classes are increasingly popular, especially those focused on empowering survivors, they sometimes still meet skepticism and resistance for various reasons. This program happens every quarter.
We are Indigenous women who are ready to shed light on the many Missing & Murdered Indigenous Women (MMIW) that are too often ignored, whose stories are untold, the women who go missing every day but rarely make the news. We want you to know their names, but, most importantly, we want justice for these women. We want the families to have their closure and get their answers. "We Are Resilient" because we are still here, fighting to be heard.
