Mission Statement

IWN was created in 1985 to support the self-determination of Indigenous women, families, communities and Nations in the Americas and Pacific Basin. In the process of promoting self determination, IWN supports public education and advocacy, the revitalization of our languages and culture, the elimination of all forms of oppression, the attainment of self sufficiency and the protection of Mother Earth for future generations.

Description

The position is located at Alma de Mujer, Center for Social Change, which is a retreat and learning center owned and operated by the IWN. Located on twenty-two acres of Texas hill country land with Cypress Creek and pond, it is the home of three endangered bird species as well as many turtles, herons, hawks and owls. An organic garden provides vegetables and medicinal herbs, serving as a sustainable teaching model for health and a renewed relationship with the earth. The retreat center hosts non-profit social change organizations doing strategic planning, board and staff meetings, meditation, yoga and purification. The treehouse and cedar cabin sleep twenty-six guests and Alma's kitchen serves healthy vegetarian, vegan and meat meals. Alma's Tiendita (store) and Indigenous women's art collection promotes women's arts and crafts, accompanied by a pottery studio. The IWN operates Capacity Institutes for Indigenous women throughout the year teaching leadership skils and natural healing with medicinal plants, as well as producing a girls summer Cultural Arts Camp and Concert. IWN publishes a magazine, Indigenous Woman, biannually since 1990, profiling Indigenous women writers, poets and artists.
