The Spirit Aligned Leadership Program exists to elevate the lives, voices and dreams of Indigenous Elder women who are working to heal, strengthen and restore the balance of Indigenous communities.
An inaugural circle of eight Legacy Leaders will be supported in a three-year commitment with the balanced goal of empowering and impacting individuals to increase both their personal and public sustainability.
Legacy Leaders are connected knowers, co-creators empowered to identify their values, inherent purpose, and experiences in self-determined ways for the sake of their people, their communities and the sustainability of meaning of the worlds they hold up.
Circles of Legacy Leaders will be supported with resources so that they may inspire and impact a larger, more public audience across interrelated focus areas: Violence against girls, women and the earth, Leadership of Indigenous girls and women, Indigenous cultural expression, Healing from historic trauma and oppression and Indigenous education.
