Join Grandmothers Margaret Behan, Arapahoe-Cheyenne Elder and Rita Long Visitor Holy Dance, Oglala Sioux Elder, on 11.11.11 for a night to remember as they share their mission and wisdom and introduce the film documenting the coming together of the International Council of Thirteen Indigenous Grandmothers. A short Q&A follows the screening.
The evening begins with musical prayers by Grammy nominated multi-instrumentalist, Gentle Thunder, at 6:45p.m. Gentle Thunder hails from Mt. Shasta, California and in the past 2 years, Austin has become her 2nd home. She is internationally known for her heart-filled presence and distinctive style on handcrafted wooden flutes, drums and hammer dulcimer.

Austin’s own beloved Susan Lincoln, Craig Toungate and Hilde Girls singing group will make a special appearance to honor the Grandmothers.
About the film and the International Council of 13 Indigenous Grandmothers
Originating from all four corners of the world, these 13 wise women elders, shamans and medicine women first came together in 2004 at a peace gathering. Moved by their concern for our planet, they formed an alliance for a peaceful and sustainable planet.
