Who Are the 13 Indigenous Grandmothers?
The Thirteen Indigenous Grandmothers are women of prayer, and women of action. Above all, they are women of wisdom. See the award winning documentary on the Grandmothers " For the Next 7 Generations"; click on image to see trailer.
In 2004, 13 Indigenous Grandmothers from around the world joined together to Save Our Planet. Their alliance is called The International Council of Thirteen Indigenous Grandmothers.
The Grandmothers Council fulfills an ancient prophecy found among many indigenous peoples: that a group of elderly women will come together to save Mother Earth when she is in peril.
Since the founding of the Council in 2004, the Grandmothers have been traveling the globe to spread a message of peace, goodwill and the need to protect Mother Earth. In response to the prophecy, the Grandmothers have held 11 Council Gatherings and numerous other events in North, Central, and South America, Europe, India, Australia, and Japan.
After 11 successful Gatherings that have resulted in worldwide support for their prayer for peace, the Grandmothers are seeking funds to hold their 12th Council Gathering, "Praying for Peace in the Land of the Buddha", scheduled for November 8-11, 2012 in Kathmandu, Nepal.
View a Slide Show of Past Gatherings.
The Grandmothers' Mission Statement says:
- We represent a global alliance of prayer, education and healing for our Mother Earth, all Her inhabitants, all the children, and for the next seven generations to come.
- We are deeply concerned with the unprecedented destruction of our Mother Earth and the destruction of indigenous ways of life. We believe the teachings of our ancestors will light our way through an uncertain future.
- We look to further our vision through the realization of projects that protect our diverse cultures: lands, medicines, language and ceremonial ways of prayer and through projects that educate and nurture our children.
The Grandmothers are active in many causes on behalf of their communities: they work to prevent their lands being destroyed by illegal logging and mining, to keep their waterways from being poisoned, to protect wildlife on the brink of extinction, to free their youth from poverty, abuse and addictions, and to halt the systematic genocide of their people and the loss of their cultural heritage. The Grandmothers' work is done through prayers, education, actions, and empowerment, for the healing of our Mother Earth, all her inhabitants, all the children, and for the next seven generations to come.
A Global Alliance
The 13 Grandmothers come from all over the world. They are:

The 13 Grandmothers full bios can be found here.
Why Nepal? Why Now?
When they first formed their alliance, the Grandmothers vowed to travel to each other's homeplaces until they had gone all the way around the circle. This November, it's Grandmother Aama Bombo's turn to host the 12th Council in Nepal. This Gathering, "Praying for Peace in the Land of the Buddha" puts a strong prayer in motion at a crucial time for our planet, in a place where prayer really matters.
The 12th Gathering -- in 2012
November of 2012 is on the cusp of what some believe will be the Great Awakening, when the Mayan calendar finishes its cycle in December. In Grandma Aama Bombo's tradition, this year of 2012 marks the transition from the Age of Destruction to the Age of Truth. May it be so!
This Gathering is the 12th Council Gathering -- but it's not the last. Next year the story will continue, as the Grandmothers begin visiting the homeplaces of their Ambassadors, such as Maori Grandmother Pauline Tangiora in Gisbourne, New Zealand, and Wise Elder Saami Grandmother Laila Spik, in her summer home in the far north of Sweden.
Save Our Planet
With each Gathering, the Grandmothers' global community has grown. Their prayers and healings have been experienced by thousands, and their community has become increasingly inclusive and diverse. But bringing the Grandmothers together from all over the world is costly: each Gathering costs about $200,000 to organize.
We've already raised over $100,000, but we need your help to ensure the safe passage of our elderly Grandmothers, their travel companions, and their translators to the remote land of Nepal. The Grandmothers hold traditions that must be protected; they carry prayers that must be heard.
Currently, the Grandmothers need another $90,000 to complete their funding for the 12th Gathering in Nepal.
Note: all donors of $25 and more will receive a tax-deductible receipt for their donations, since the Grandmothers are a program of the Center for Sacred Studies, a California 501(c)3 nonprofit organization.
With 11 Gatherings successfully completed, the Grandmothers want to carry their prayer to the Land of the Buddha. Attending a Gathering can be a magical and transformative event - no matter how many people attend, the Grandmothers will pray for them all - no matter how many people come forward for healing, the Grandmothers will welcome them all.
How the World Benefits
In this highly significant year of 2012, the Grandmothers are inviting everyone to join the prayer to Save Our Planet. "Grandmother power" is now a global phenomenon. No longer relegated to the footnotes of history, grandmothers are finding their voices and their power to protect their tradtions and their healing practices, in an effort to ensure the survival of the world for their children, their children's children, and for the next seven generations to come.
The Grandmothers Council has already inspired many other grandmothers, elders, women's organizations, environmental organizations and wisdom keepers to step forward to join the movement to Save Our Planet. The world benefits by joining the Grandmothers in their prayer for peace.
- Fully funds the 12th Council Gathering in the Land of the Buddha, just before the Festival of Lights.
- Shows age does not matter in the quest to Save Our Planet
- Helps indigenous peoples preserve their native healing traditions
- Inspires other elders to step forward and become caretakers of the Earth
- Empowers more women to do more to Save Our Planet
- Raises awareness about the tide of destruction caused by illegal logging and mining
- Informs the public about our waterways being poisoned
- Teaches people that all life is sacred and helps protect wildlife from extinction
- Helps indigenous peoples recover from abuse and addictions

In most cultures, women and elders are the caretakers of the family and the protectors of the children and children's children. It is no wonder these elderly women are standing up and taking a leading role to make a difference. If we do not act now to help Save Mother Earth, what will happen to our children’s children?

Claim this Perk - Flordemayo"s Healing Plant Oil
Experience the clearing and healing of the 13 sacred centers of the body after applying the Grandmother Plant Oil on the body, which will assist in relaxation through meditation or sleep.
The Flordemayo"s Healing Plant Oil comes from the Grandmother plant. It is a sacred plant. The Grandmothers told me that the reason it is called a Grandmother plant is because it is one of the original plants that taught all the other plants their medicine. When we need teaching and guidance, we think of elders and wisdom. The Grandmother plant is the source we want and need in order to come into this wisdom. As we use the plant, it starts moving through us at a cellular level which helps release and restructure our light bodies.”
Buddhi Maya Lama, who is also known as Aama Bombo (Mother Shaman), was born in the remote village of Melong in the Eastern part of the Bagmati Zone, Nepal, 65 years ago. Her father was a renowned shaman in the Nepalese Tamang tradition. Aama became a shaman in spite of the Tamang tradition that women are not supposed to practice shamanism. In the early days, her father restricted her in every way from practicing shamanism. However, when her father died at the age of eighty, his spirits and other gods and spirits started visiting and teaching her to be a shaman, against the prevailing cultural values of Tamang society.
Today, Aama has achieved great renown in Nepal. She treats around 100 patients every morning at her house in Boudhnath, near Kathmandu. Patients come to visit her from around the country, as well as from India and Tibet. She does not discriminate against those she heals, treating the poorest of the poor as well as the Royal
Family of Nepal with equal dedication and respect.
We grandmothers have come from far and wide to speak the knowledge we hold inside. In many languages we have been told it is time to make the right changes for our families, for the lands we love. We can be the voice for the voiceless. We are at the threshold. We are going to see change. If we can create the vision in our heart, it will spread. As bringers of light, we have no choice but to join together. As women of wisdom we cannot be divided. When the condor meets the eagle—thunderbirds come home.

Nothing happens in my country without consulting the women. Our wise people, our elders, they are like libraries. We consult them whenever we need to make large decisions. Every five years, in my country, it is the women who make a peace march. It is the grandmothers who for one month go into the forest to prepare for this peace march. They fast, they pray and invoke the ancestors. When the grandmothers speak, the president listens.

Humanity is at a crossroads, we can only go one way, as one can’t go in two directions at the same time. We do not know what we need to do as a human species, there is only one place to go and that is into the light, as one tribe.
We need to keep hope alive. It is like a never-ending story. In my village there is violence. What is happening in my village is happening in the world. At this moment, we need our faith. We need to make that faith stronger so we can continue doing our spiritual work and continue helping others.

Today we live in a forgotten world, crowded with illusions and lacking meaning. So much war, such desecration! All the while, how magnificent the Creation that holds comfort and peace. It contains the elements of which we are created and which make us brothers to Nature. It has the four directions that guide us. So simple and beautiful, it inspired our journey here, in these days now. And in spite of all the war, a spark of hope expands inside us, a message that comes to us from our ancestors, our grandparents, great- grandparents, great-great-grandparents who inspire us with their courage and protect us from all forgetfulness. Through time prophesies have foretold that the moment of humanity’s transmutation would arrive, and that women would be at the forefront of this process. And here we are, bringing our seed.

Indigenous people have come through a time of great struggle, a time of darkness. The way I look at it is like the nature of a butterfly. In the cocoon, a place of darkness, the creature breaks down into a fluid and then a change, a transformation, takes place. When it is ready and in its own time, it begins to move and develop a form that stretches and breaks away from this cocoon and emerges into this world, into life, as a beautiful creature.
We grandmothers, we have emerged from that darkness, see this beauty, see each other and reach out to the world with open arms, with love, hope, compassion, faith and charity.

The past is not a burden; it is a scaffold which brought us to this day. We are free to be who we are—to create our own life out of our past and out of the present. We are our ancestors. When we can heal ourselves, we also heal our ancestors, our grandmothers, our grandfathers and our children. When we heal ourselves, we heal Mother Earth.

I’d like to talk about problems in the world and what the sources of these problems are. I am Tibetan, so I will speak about the situation in Tibet, which affects all of us.
