For the Next Seven Generations

Went to see the new movie by the Council of 13 Indigenous Grandmothers last night. The film is called For the Next Seven Generations.

The evening began with drum and song. Then Grandmother Flordemayo came up and spoke. And led us through a loving meditation before the viewing.

The movie tells the story of how the Grandmothers came together as well as the stories of the Grandmothers. The places they come from, their traditions and how the council came to be. It walks through their attempts to get heard by the Pope. Their audience with the Dalai Lama and their subsequent visit to Rome.

Their message is one of peace. Grandmother Flordemayo spoke afterwards about how we need to heal the separation between all of us. Between skin color, between the earth and us, all separations. How we need to join as one and move forward. That time is short and the time for healing is now!
