We are an Indigenous model of healing and education focused on the restoration of our communities based on the matrilineal values and principles of our original self-governance systems. Clan Mothers is committed to the creation of a contemporary, sustainable Healing Village governed by a distinctive Indigenous council. Our Healing Village will provide mid-term to long-term support to women who have been victims of multi-generational systemic trauma, sexual violence, sexual exploitation, and human trafficking as they begin their healing journey. The heart and spirit of the Village is the resurgence of Indigenous methodologies and worldviews to heal the most important beings in communities across Canada, the mothers and daughters of the next generation.
What People Are Saying
"New models will come when donors come to the table as true partners with Indigenous Peoples – not in transactions where Indigenous Peoples are funded to implement the donor’s agenda but in relationships where Indigenous Peoples are funded to design and deliver the project. "
— Rebecca Adamson, Founder of Firstpeoples.org
