2017 Keeping the Homefires Burning
November 9-11, 2017 | Yavapai Nation | Scottsdale, AZ
Seventh Generation Fund for Indigenous Peoples hosts this unique opportunity for Native organizers and activists to collaborate, share, and grow. Keeping the Homefires Burning provides a place of synergy and strategy for grassroots community groups to come together, share skills through peer learning and exchange, and build momentum and power.
Warrior Up will focus on advocacy, climate change, food sovereignty, and wellness, among other topics pertaining to sustainable and culturally vibrant communities against the backdrop of contemporary ecological, economic and social distresses.
Traditional attire is encouraged and welcomed. Bring your Native event or action t-shirts, wear your moccasins, come prepared for yoga and other mindfulness activities, as well as morning runs and traditional hula. Also be ready to dance, sing, and participate in sunrise ceremony.
