“For the Next 7 Generations” is an inspiring look at 13 female medicine women, healers, and elder indigenous stateswomen from around the globe who’ve come together out of concern for what is happening in the world to form the International Council of 13 Indigenous Grandmothers. The film follows the grandmothers from the creation of the council, foretold in visions and prophesies, through their fascinating travels around the world sharing the wisdom teachings of their cultures and taking action for the benefit of the planet, its inhabitants, and future generations. The film is being shown one night only at the historic Rogue Theatre in Grants Pass: November 6, 2010 (doors open at 6:30). The screening will be preceded by musical offerings by Whistling Elk (a Native Drum group), Gentle Thunder (Native American flute) and vocalists Windsong and Kat Del Rio.
The screening is being hosted by Native American Elder Agnes Baker-Pilgrim. Known and loved by many in the Grants Pass area and around the world, Grandma Aggie is the eldest living member of the Takelma band of Rogue River Indians, and granddaughter of the first elected Chief of the Confederated Tribes of the Siletz. She is also the Chairperson of the International Council for 13 Indigenous Grandmothers.
