Sharing the Wisdom of the Grandmothers

We were a 2018 Rasmuson Foundation Fellowship Award Recipient!

     There won't be peace on earth until the voices of the grandmothers are heard.       - Native American teaching

The Women's Voices Project has taken on a new initiative. We are helping to raise Fellowship Funds for grandmothers and elders who are making a difference in the world through their amazing examples, lives and work. These contributions are tax deductible.

Help Support Amazing Grandmothers/Elders Making a Difference!

"I am so grateful and honored to have been selected as a 2018 Rasmuson Foundation Fellowship Award recipient. In May, Rasmuson Foundation named 35 artists from 12 Alaska communities as the 2018 recipients and I was one of 10 artists to receive a Fellowship Award. The Fellowship will enable me to to continue the work started with "The Wisdom of the Grandmothers" and produce another documentary with additional grandmother interviews focused on indigenous prophesy stories and their lessons for today's world. Thank you to the Rasmuson Foundation for this recognition and life-changing opportunity! "
