Welcome! Indigenous Goddess Gang October 2017 -Issue 1

Happy Diné New Year!!! Our first issue falls in line with the start of the Diné New Year! We acknowledge that October is the start of the Diné New Year &  in our fashion shoot section we pay homage to the fall season in Dinétah. As some of our collective members are Diné we take pride in our traditions. From our fairs to our amazing jewelry & ancestral knowledge, we celebrate! 

Each month we will create a space for sharing medicine; whether it be poetry, food & seed knowledge, herbalism, music and more. This a space for reclaiming knowledge from an indigenous femme lens. Each month we will honor a different tribe of matriarchs in our fashion shoots. Each month we will continue to grow and share the knowledge of our matriarchs and share that medicine. 

Indigenous Goddess Gang is a space intended for INDIGENOUS people. We've had our land taken from us, we've had our cultures taken from us, we've had our languages taken from us. This is a step towards reclaiming our knowledge, identity and medicine.  This site is not intended for exploiting or appropriating.  Tread lightly and respectfully. 

"As a project which centers indigenous women, we also recognize the crucial work of our queer, trans, two-spirit and non-binary communities, and we acknowledge that we have a lot of work to do; to walk together, to reclaim our knowledge together and to move forward together."
