Indigenous Knowledge Hub
Welcome to our Indigenous Knowledge Hub! We invite you to this Spirit Aligned virtual space to be in conversation with Indigenous Women Leaders. The Hub serves as an access point for Indigenous women to pass on their unique cultural knowledge and to ensure their healing power and traditions are shared across generations.
Every year, Spirit Aligned welcomes new Legacy and Future Legacy Leaders to their sisterhood. You can find the cultural content and creations from their work here. As you spend time listening and learning, you can find stories, place-based knowledge, interviews, speeches, videos, lessons learned, and more.
As you enter this space of living traditional knowledge, consider how these teachings might apply to Indigenous cultural wellness in your community.
