“In the spirit of cultural humility, we apologize – and listen to the Voices of the Land,” reads a flyer distributed by the Grandmothers Global Healing Movement, founded by Norma Jean Young, focused on bringing the wisdom-keeping Grandmother’s presence and function back into the world.
The apology ceremony focuses on the Duwamish people, and all Native American tribes, 1 to 5 pm, Saturday, March 30 at the Duwamish Longhouse, 4705 W. Marginal Way SW, Seattle. Meal served at 3 pm, with music throughout the afternoon.
The apology is co-sponsored by the Duwamish Longhouse and the Grandmothers Global Healing Movement. Featured speakers include H.E. Dagmola Kusho Sakya of the Tibetan Buddhist lineage; Rev. Dr. Kelle Brown, Pastor Pat Wright of Total Experience Gospel Choir and others.
There is no fee, only your willingness to bring the feast: food, dollars, services and goods.
“This critical time of breakdown in our world culture demands the presence and practical wisdom that holds life whole,” says Young. “This is a healing event to bring together the essential components of healing—cultural humility, apology, listening and taking action in partnership.”
