#women life givers & fighters 💫

I took this when we were camping near the Lakota camp grounds in Oregon. There is a grassroots birth movement, Indigenous Midwifery, bringing Indigenous perspectives and knowledge to the modern world again. Supporting and certifying Native American women, as they take back their roles as birth workers. 🙏🏻life givers🙏🏻 Since the late 1800s many indigenous traditions and ceremonies were outlawed by the federal gov. Including – birth practices, making it a medicalized biz. Today there is a gradual growing awareness to bring indigenous intelligence to today’s society. Especially when today, women experience birth with how we are socialized. It is so empowering the emphasis made within this community on women’s intuitive connection with their bodies • regaining their traditions • their birthing experience & the vast wisdom among the elder mothers in the communities that not only must continue to be passed on to next generations but voiced within all of society. I was honored to be surrounded by extraordinary advocacy in people supporting other traditions, beliefs, and rights. Amongst the dark things occurring in our society there is also light, when united. When voiced. Women rights, human rights, all rights ✊🏼✊🏽✊🏿 & indigenous rights ✖️“I am not free while any woman is unfree, even when her shackles are very different from my own”✖️
