International Council of 13 Indigenous Grandmothers
Here is some text from Wikipedia The International Council of 13 Indigenous Grandmothers is an international alliance of indigenous female elders that focuses on issues such as the environment, internationalism, and human right. The group met for the first time in October 2004 at the Dalai Lama’s Menla Retreat Center on Panther Mountain in Phoenicia, New York, during which time they declared themselves a council. Academic Suzanne Bouclin described them as “an alliance of 13 women elders from across the globe that was organized to uphold indigenous practices and ceremonies and affirm the right to use plant medicines free of legal restriction.”
