The Sacred Hoop
The Medicine Wheel, sometimes known as the Sacred Hoop, has been used by generations of various Native American tribes for health and healing. It embodies the Four Directions, as well as Father Sky, Mother Earth, and Spirit Tree—all of which symbolise dimensions of health and the cycles of life.

Native women need your help - lack of services, funds and food. During the time of pandemic Covid-19 travelling the world in an alarming rate to survive; making humans host. Your funds are greatly needed and appreciated; for the largest reserve in Canada and the women who are forgotten and un-cared for, making their way out to seek food for their children, they cannot protect themselves- we act to provide help for those that need it. We will get them food and make masks for native women & children.What happened to safety and protection for all Canadians? During the pox and t.b pandemic from 1900-1925; it took the lives of approximately 200,000 First Nations Peoples from Cowichan through economic trade from poxed blankets. The de-population was massive; lets save Native Women,for without them, there is no nation.

1) get someone to make face masks

2) help with expenses 

3) food & bills

Native women carry the law of the lands, environment, economy, and walk with medicine; the knowledge of Indigenous Medicines from North America have been highly stolen, abused, and used for corporate powers to make capital. Native women have been trained by their grandmothers to utilise plants of North America in the way of medicines; they are not acknowledged in Canada for their medicinal knowledge, skills, and practise. Why, because our Indian Trust funds are controlled by Canada, without releasing it to Native Nations since agreements with foreign crowns. We seek to establish a foundation of trust with the women around the globe, to keep moving forward with a voice without discrimination or racism. Please help, care and donate. Please help us gain a stronger voice. We work toward protecting those who cannot protect themselves; Government's, on or off reserve or Service Agencies and Health Care Service Professionals are ignoring Native Women today - during the pandemic. Your donations are needed and appreciated.

Hello, Sharon,

I hope Canada will grant or return to Native Nations what truly belongs to them. Thank you for your untiring dedication to speak up in behalf of your people.
