October 7-9, 2011
SEJANAM, the Southeastern Jurisdictional Association for Native American Ministries, and Lake Junaluska will be hosting the second Native Women’s Gathering and Conference October 7-9, 2011. The conference will focus on capacity building, sharing strategies, and tapping into the leadership capabilities of Native American Women to strengthen their communities and churches.
Native American Wisdom Keepers hold that the women will lead the healing among the tribes. The honor of the people lies in the moccasin tracks of women who walk the Good Red Road. We ask Creator to bless the women as they prepare to come together. We call on Native American Women to be strong with the strength and nurturing grace of the Great Spirit.
Come and be with us to sing prayer songs of praise, strength, and healing. Hear the hopeful stories of women who have impacted their communities for the greater good.
