Native leaders, including women and two-spirit leaders, plan for the future with a seven-generation mindset. These leaders steward resources for the seventh generation – including land, water, and indigenous languages ­­– while simultaneously tending to the economic well-being of Native nations and communities today. This event will provide an opportunity to learn what seventh generation principles are and why these core values are important to our peoples and leaders. It will also provide an opportunity to learn from successful models of seventh generation stewardship and how to balance the often-difficult decisions such planning entails.

Thank you for attending Leading for the 7th Generation.  You can watch video of this event on our Youtube page.

Join us to learn about seventh generation principles from Sharon Day (Bois Forte Band of Chippewa, Executive Director, Indigenous Peoples Task Force), Dr. Henrietta Mann (Cheyenne, Professor Emeritus, Montana State University) and a panel of tribal, state and activist leaders including Annette Johnson, Heather Keeler and Tara Houska, who will reflect on how they apply seventh generation principles in their lives and work.


This event is hosted by the Center on Women, Gender, and Public Policy; Seven Teachings MN; and Tiwahe Foundation.
