Embodying the fast flight and power of a flicker – a good medicine bird, Flicker Fund Program responds to already vulnerable and stressed Indigenous communities on the frontlines of climate caused crisis and emergencies.

THRIVING WOMEN recognizes Indigenous women and girls’ inherent strength and capacity for healing, leadership, and regenerating positive futures.

Thriving Women centers and uplifts Indigenous women’s leadership and strategies to reclaim traditional matrilineal lifeways that have sustained and built nations since time immemorial. It recognizes the targeting of Indigenous women and girls as a manifestation of ongoing colonization and the link between extractive industries and violence against Mother Earth. The program supports grassroots, Indigenous women-led and serving initiatives to prevent and remedy gender oppression including strategies addressing Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women, Girls and Two Spirit Relatives; uplifts matrilineal centered traditional health and wellness practices (birthkeeping, healing, arts, etc.), bolsters coming-of-age ceremonies; advances multi-generational leadership development, and revives women’s healing and well-being through food systems and land-based practices. Thriving Women is implemented through the following pathways for gender and social justice:

  • Birthkeeping, Motherhood, and Kinship
  • Honoring the Rights of Mother Earth
  • Reclaiming a World Without Violence Against Women, Girls, and Two-Spirits
  • Women and Girls’ Cultural Vitality and Leadership
