GRANDMOTHER RITA’S GATHERING – ALASKA, USA 2011

The Grandmothers gathered as a council at the Dena’ina Center in Anchorage, Alaska, hosted by our Yup’ik Grandmother, Rita Pitka Blumenstein. The theme, “Healing the Spirit from the Light Within”, manifested through three and a half days of prayer ceremonies, healings and cultural exchanges. Public Council themes included the role of women and motherhood, restoring your foundation and peace (mental, physical, spiritual health), healing Mother Earth, and balancing life with laugher, tears and healing.
