Official Rematriation Magazine Launch Party!
Returning The Sacred To The Mother
We’re Writing Herstory
What is REMATRIATION?
Rematriation is a powerful word Indigenous women of Turtle Island use to describe how they are restoring balance to the world. To Haudenosaunee women, it means “Returning the Sacred to the Mother,” and at Rematriation Magazine we are guided by our traditional teachings which acknowledge our connection to water, Grandmother Moon and Mother Earth. We are empowered through our matrilineal culture.
Rematriation Magazine is an storytelling platform where Indigenous women gather for collective healing form historical as well as current traumas—and for empowerment through rewriting our own narratives and the telling of new narratives. We deliver kitchen table conversations through an online platform, allowing women to participate from anywhere at any time.
On the summer of 2017, our Haudenosaunee Sisterhood was rekindled in a historic meeting of women from the six Nations of our Confederacy. Onkwehonwe women came together under the monumental solar eclipse during a 4-day gathering of healing at Ganondagan. Rematriation Magazine supports the sisterhood by creating spaces for conversation on issues we care about on our platform.
What we do
The Rematriation Magazine Social Network provides exclusive access to Indigenous women who form part of our Sisterhood. Access is provided by invitation, and conversations are private. Our social network is a place where Indigenous women gather for open and honest conversations about topics they care about and to reflect on Rematriation Magazine content. Oh, and did we mention our social network is not Facebook.
When women gather for healing, entire communities are touched. Gatherings are an essential part of Rematriation Magazine, with Rekindling the Fire of Our Sisterhood 2017 at Ganondagan being the spark. Gatherings are strictly closed and only for the Sisterhood, supportive Indigenous men and Indigenous two-spirit relatives; they are not open to the public.
Indigenous sisters, supportive supportive Indigenous brothers and Indigenous two-spirit relatives receive monthly issues in their inbox and stay informed about upcoming community events and gatherings. New articles, videos, and audio highlight stories of Indigenous women. To join our newsletter, submit a subscription request through our online form.
