Conscious Giving from an Indigenous Perspective

How are we all related? Whether from an indigenous perspective or from an ecology perspective, things point towards the truth that we are all intimately linked in a living system of relationships.

Join Sherri and I on this webinar about
Indigenous Core Values and the vision of We Are Nature Rising.
Wednesday June 7th, 2pm
Register here.

We Are Nature Rising is working to address the intersection of issues that challenge our ecological, cultural and spiritual well-being today: Indigenous Rights, Climate Change, Extraction-Based Economy and Nature Disconnection. As part of this effort, we wish to evolve thinking around philanthropic giving from a compartmentalized single issue approach to one that embraces the complexity of nature, culture and leadership.  

During this webinar, Sherri Mitchell will discuss indigenous core values of kinship, responsibility, sharing and cooperation.  Mark will talk about the necessity of intergenerational leadership development.

What kind of cultural values are needed to cultivate the next generation of leaders?

How can we move towards integrating differences, and forming a new whole versus advancing a culture of winning and domination over others?  

How can we transform financial capital into social, cultural and natural capital for the purpose of long term regenerative culture?

There is limited seating on this call, if you are interested in attending live with us, register now.  If you are unable to make this time, registering will get you a recording of the call by email.

In addition to sharing teachings and stories, we have two fundraising goals:

  1. Sherri will be speaking about a ceremony taking place this summer based on Penobscot prophecies, that is called Healing the Wounds of Turtle Island. To come together to heal the earth and address the challenges of our times, Sherri says: “prophecies tell us that we will need to heal the original wounds and renew the sacred contracts between the people and the rest of creation”. All are welcome. Contributions are needed for travel expenses for indigenous spiritual elders coming from around the world.
  2. We are seeking a circle of visionary philanthropic supporters who will annually commit to a gift of $900- $90,000 for the next three years.  Our intention is to fund more native led projects like this and secure the first three years of operating expenses as soon as possible so that we can shift our focus to doing the work of We Are Nature Rising and not spend all our time raising money. Vision Circle members receive special updates and opportunities to directly connect with our indigenous partners and next generation leaders, as well as a chance to gather at our annual dinner.

Registering will include an invitation to a follow-up conversation about advancing We Are Nature Rising.
