THIRTEEN INDIGENOUS GRANDMOTHERS
Having first met Flordemayo, along with her teacher Don Alejandro Oxlaj the head of the Mayan Council of Elders, at a ceremony in Santa Fe, New Mexico some years ago, we were duly impressed by her strength of bearing and dedication to healing and light. She is a member of the International Council of 13 Indigenous Grandmothers who travel the world as an alliance of prayer, education and healing for our Mother Earth.
When we invited her to be a presenter at the Vancouver conference, she asked us for time to pray and find guidance about participating. We waited for her reply and after a few days of seeking guidance from Great Spirit she said that she would be joining us. We were very pleased and honored. She also requested to be the last presenter of the conference as she wished to hear all the others and respond to them and finalize this special gathering as a Mayan elder.
“Humanity is at a crossroads, we can only go one way, as one can’t go in two directions at the same time. We do not know what we need to do as a human species, there is only one place to go and that is into the light, as one tribe.”
Flordemayo — Mayan Central America
Born the youngest of 15 children in the highlands of Central America, Flordemayo was found at an early age, like others in her family, to have the gift of Sight. By age four she was being trained in the art of curanderismo which had been handed down from mother to daughter for many generations. Flordemayo’s mother was a midwife and healer and taught her daughters in the use of herbs, women’s medicine and how women are to honor and care for the Earth.
Flordemayo now lives in New Mexico. But you won’t find her at home much. She is a frequent presenter at international conferences. Since 1999 she has been part of the Wisdom of the Grandmother’s Foundation. She is the recipient of the Martin de La Cruz Award for Alternative Healing, a prestigious honor given by the International Congress of Traditional Medicine. Flordemayo is also a founding director of the Institute for Natural and Traditional Knowledge. This organization has many active projects, including the establishment of an organic seed bank and educational outreach in support of traditional agriculture.
The Prophets Conference encourages you to help support the work of the Thirteen Indigenous Grandmothers by going to www.grandmotherscouncil.com. You will also be able to purchase the Grandmothers’ handmade sacred objects at the conference.
STATEMENT OF ALLIANCE
WE ARE THIRTEEN INDIGENOUS GRANDMOTHERS who came together for the first time from October 11 through October 17, 2004, in Phoenicia, New York. We gathered from the four directions in the land of the people of the Iroquois Confederacy. We come here from the Amazon rainforest, the Alaskan Tundra of North America, the great forest of the American northwest, the vast plains of North America, the highlands of central America, the Black Hills of South Dakota, the mountains of Oaxaca, the desert of the American southwest, the mountains of Tibet and from the rainforest of Central Africa.
Affirming our relations with traditional medicine peoples and communities throughout the world, we have been brought together by a common vision to form a new global alliance.
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, 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, the contamination of our air, waters and soil, the atrocities of war, the global scourge of poverty, the threat of nuclear weapons and waste, the prevailing culture of materialism, the epidemics which threaten the health of the Earth's peoples, the exploitation of indigenous medicines, and with the destruction of indigenous ways of life.
We, the International Council of Thirteen Indigenous Grandmothers, believe that our ancestral ways of prayer, peacemaking and healing are vitally 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 restriction. 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 with all those who honor the Creator, and to all who work and pray for our children, for world peace, and for the healing of our Mother Earth.
For all our relations.
