Indigenous Goddess Gang

Creating a space for sharing medicine through poetry, food & seed knowledge, herbalism, music and more. This is 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.

Cooks Notes

These cookies spread quite a bit so make sure to leave enough room in between them before baking.

Feel free to add different flavorings into the cookies, I think gingerbread spice, almond, or cardamom would be delicious!

You can make these gluten free but I wouldn’t use corn meal in place of the flour, I would recommend using gluten free all purpose or rice flour, etc. If you use corn meal they will be very dense.

If you want more of a bit to the cookies you can use a rougher corn meal like polenta or grits.
