At Seeds, our intention is to create programs that uplift and center Indigenous voices. The time has come where we, as Indigenous people need to share our own stories, in our own ways. It is imperative for our survival. Seeds is committed to providing that opportunity whether it’s here in Santa Fe, through our programs in Philadelphia, or at the dinner table with our families.
It’s a been a long road to get to this place and we are just beginning. As Indigenous women and mothers, we have a visceral approach to our work. Yes, we have strategies, business plans, and a support team that we are so thankful for, but the truth is, experience, too many challenges, and age have given us gifts that surpass any of those things. Seeds is for our people. Seeds is for our children. Seeds is for the future. And today, we share all of what we have with you. We want you to experience the joy we feel, the beauty we have understood since the beginning of time, and the depth of emotion with which we walk through this world. Celebrate, share, engage, learn, laugh, eat, sing, play, dance, feel. This is our wish for you. This is our wish for us. Together.
