The vision of the Womyns Gathering was inspired by the finding of an Ancient Indigenous Ancestor who was found with a Buffalo Skull in the Whiteshell area, she was carbon dated to be 6,500 years old. She is evidence of one of the many prophecies foretold by the Indigenous people that ancestors would reappear at a significant time to assist the people when changes are to come upon Mother Earth.
Womyn of all nations, races and cultures from all directions around the world are welcome to join four days of gathering to heal, to teach, to celebrate and to reconnect as womyn with Grandmother Moon and Mother Earth.
