Building the Village
Over the last couple of years, a remarkable thing has happened – a group of religious women gifted a plot of land to a group of Indigenous Grandmothers working to develop a healing village. This act began a relationship between Women of Spirit, Catholic and Indigenous, committed to an honest and open dialogue about the past, present and future with the goal of reconciliation. We acknowledge that this process will take time and will not always be comfortable.
An outdoor space is an important aspect of the healing, education and programming offered by Clan Mothers, making the entire site integral to our holistic approach.
Economically, the social enterprises in the Village will play a key role in training and education for the residents’ future success and provide the means for self-empowerment and community development. Meanwhile, the proceeds from the social enterprises will feed back into the Clan Mothers Healing Village, ensuring operational sustainability.
