Rematriation: A spiritually conscious
movement led by Indigenous women

Why We Exist

We support the full sovereign expression of all our Indigenous relatives and believe that it is through the process of Rematriation that we reclaim our identity, our culture and our ways. Much of our cultures are deeply rooted in our Earth Mother and celestially connected to the matrilineal, uterine lines of our families, our people and our nations that extend beyond this world.

We are made of this  Earth, we belong to it as human beings, and as spirits from beyond. During our time here on Mother Earth, we are the stewards of the lands, her waters and all living beings, and for the faces of those yet unborn.

As Haudenosaunee women, we are connected to our celestial roots and the inheritance of our future generations. This obligates us to our Mother Earth, our bodies and those yet unborn. We stand for the right for clean flowing water, clean air and foods as our Mother intended.

As Onkwehonwe, we are all human beings and carry this responsibility. We have a responsibility to care for the seeds bequeathed to us by our ancestors. We do this for the faces of our grandchildren who will walk this earth beyond our time, so that they too, will be nourished by the life that grows and flows from our Mother’s body.

As Haudenosaunee women, we join with our Indigenous relatives around the world to offer our teachings of a world and Universe that extends beyond this one. As Indigenous women, our minds, hearts and bodies are a window to connect to those dancing beyond the stars, a vessel to hear the waters and a calling to speak for beings without the power of voice.

In 2050, Onkwe’shón:’a/the people are on the edge of collapse. Yethi’nihsténha tsyonhwentsyà:te/Mother Earth moved, stretched her limbs, shook off the disease and decay. She doesn’t depend on humans…we depend on her.
