The Walking in Many Worlds 21st Annual Global Conference was held December 15-17, 2021, at the Harrah’s Cherokee Casino Resort in Cherokee NC. The WMW was a global collaboration for the indigenous communities. Our theme “The Eight Sacred Hoops Summit of the United Indigenous People of Turtle Island” focused on the future of tribal communities. The imprtance of Indigenous Agriculture/ Business, Tribal Cultures, Education, Health, and Health Disparities in the Advancing of the indigenous families and communities.
The Medicine Wheel, sometimes known as the Sacred Hoop, has been used generations by various Native American tribes for health and healing. It embodies the Four Directions, as well as Father Sky, Mother Earth, and Spirit Tree and the Longman (River)—all of which symbolize dimensions of health and the cycles of life.
Each of the eight directions (Committees) is represented by ten Indigenous women who serve on each committee gifted with their specific expertise. AIMI has always been inclusive to the indigenous community since its founding. As we build model programs together it provides opportunities for our Intra-Tribal partners to share success and barriers from within our communities.
Walking in Many Worlds 21st Annual Global Conference in its period of darkness, the winter solstice is an opportunity to go inward with deep intention, to care for our spiritual selves, our bodies and minds, our loved ones, and families, and to prepare for the longer days ahead.
The Medicine Wheel can take many different forms, which is why we are working together to create the eight directions of the Indigenous Medicine Wheel. Join us on this educational experience in Cherokee, NC December 15-17, 2021! Get your Tickets Now...
