Women of All Nations Retreat
Snow Mountain Ranch, Granby
"This is a women's movement that began in Standing Rock, and the women in our community will continue this powerful movement to reclaim our voices and to take back what has been stolen for hundreds of years," organizers say. "All peoples, all nations, all women have suffered from memories of our ancestors and own traumas. By coming together, we will learn each woman's story. We will learn that compassion that each individual needs, and we will learn to grow these strong bonds that have become so fractured with the genocide and the continual colonization."
