Preserving the Living Continuity of Ancient Wisdom Worldwide Through Dialogue and Discovery

Indigenous wisdom traditions provide the world with diverse perspectives and practices based on respect, reciprocity and balance. As we increasingly feel the limitations of global systems that jeopardize our Earth, Sacred Fire Foundation encourages multi-generational gatherings centered on ancestral wisdom for social change. Here, we invite you to rise with us to experience the world as living, aware and sacred.

Voices of Wisdom in Olympia, Washington

After an usually dry summer in Olympia, Washington, a welcoming rain greeted Yakama Nation elder Levina Wilkins, Hereditary Chief of the Lummi Nation Tsi’li’xw (Bill James), and 35 people who came from Oregon, California, and Washington state to gather around a consecrated fire. The group listened as Levina and Bill shared stories of their upbringing, the elders that cared for and guided them, and the traditions that they pass on to young people today.
