They have a website:
http://www.grandmotherscouncil.com/

They also have a book out "Grandmothers Counsel the World" by Carol Schaefer. It contains the stories of the 13 grandmothers. It is really worth reading.

Statement of the International Council of Grandmothers

We are the International Council of Thirteen Indigenous Grandmothers. We have united as one. Ours is an alliance of prayer, education and healing for our Mother Earth, for all Her inhabitants, for all the children, and for the next seven generations.

We are deeply concerned with the unprecedented destruction of our Mother Earth: the contamination of our air, water, and soil; the atrocities of war; the prevailing culture of materialism; the epidemics that threaten the health of the Earth’s peoples; the exploration of indigenous medicines; and the destruction of indigenous medicines; and the destruction of indigenous ways of life.

We, the International Council of Indigenous Grandmothers, believe that our ancestral ways of prayer, peacemaking, and healing are virtually needed today. We come together to nurture, educate, and train our children. We come together to uphold the practice of our ceremonies and affirm the right to use our plant medicines free of legal restrictions. We come together to
protect the lands where our peoples live and upon which our cultures depend, to safeguard the collective heritage of traditional medicines, and to defend the Earth Herself. We believe that the teachings of our ancestors will light our way through an uncertain future.

We join all those who honor the Creator and all who pray for our children, for world peace, and for healing of our Mother Earth. For all our relations:

Margaret Behan, Cheyenne/Arapaho
Rita Pitka Blumenstein, Yupik
Julieta Casimiro, Mazatec
Anma Bombo, Tamang
Flordemayo, Mayan
Maria Alice Campos Feire, Brazil
Tsering Dolma Gyaltong, Tibetan
Beatrice Long Visitor Holy Dance, Ogalala Lakota

Agnes Baker Pilgrim, Takelma Siletz
Mona Polacca, Hopi/Havasupai/Tewa

The Grandmothers Alliance Statement

WE, THE INTERNATIONAL COUNCIL OF THIRTEEN INDIGENOUS GRANDMOTHERS, represent a global alliance of prayer, education and healing for our Mother Earth, all Her inhabitants, all the children, and for the next seven generations to come. We are deeply concerned with the unprecedented destruction of our Mother Earth and the destruction of indigenous ways of life. We believe the teachings of our ancestors will light our way through an uncertain future. We look to further our vision through the realization of projects that protect our diverse cultures: lands, medicines, language and ceremonial ways of prayer and through projects that educate and nurture our children.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Of how these women gathered is an amazing story. They come from all parts of the world. The nurturing feminine side is a must at this time. What follows is a translation I have made of an invitation these grandmothers have made for June 21, 2008 at noon your local time.


"The 21 of June at noon a Change of Time described in the Mayan Calendar will be produced.

A harmonic over tone will be produced that will change Earth to a new dimension.

Said over tone will be communicated to the super consciousness of approximately 600,000,000 people."

Drumming is part of what these grandmothers do using sound to create and sustain thought through all who will participate to try to get Earth above risk and stabilize her. It is easier to create through sound than to destroy.

The mass of humans needed are those who are aware of the issues. Using quantum energy of thought to create a new language.

The idea is to create a wave to create acceleration of time. The effort must be concerted at the same time to amplify the effects.

For anyone doubting what vibration can do and is, please refer to the lifetime work of Dr. Valerie Hunt:

http://www.bioenergyfields.org/index.as … subsecid=0

As we speak, here are people using the recorded voice of a person and theta waves to heal.

We do not have be indigenous, have the same belief system to participate. Only the same heart intent.

Just wanted to add to this thread, and maybe resurface the 13 Indigenous Grandmothers onto the search engines ;) .  I recently learned about the 13 Grandmothers and wrote an article there.  My plans are to write an article profiling each Grandmother there as well.

I am so glad you did!
I remember hearing about the grandmothers and feeling so happy that they were together and couldn't wait to hear more or better yet have a chance to learn more about them. What a wonderful treasure they are!
Then...as with most things these days, they momentarily slipped from my thoughts. Thanks for bringing them back and please continue with your good work.
Peace,
w_e

This iz very important to share with our youth, I remember sittin with my Grand Mother Nani Hanah (wize one) she would feed us kidz Pachofa and then tell storiez, such AZ the story of her sister that died on the trail of tearz. Picture 15 little half and quarter breed Chickasaw kidz cryin and laughin to the storiez of this weather faced old 5 foot nothin Grand Mother. This instilled a great love for all NDN peoplez and our heritage which I carry to this day. Granny Nanny waz a true gift to her Children and Grand Children, and to her Tribe.
