The Indigenous Women of the Americas – Defenders of Mother Earth Treaty Compact 2015 was signed on September 27, 2015 in the early afternoon in the East Meadow on Lenape Territory (New York City) of Turtle Island on the day of the fourth Blood Moon of the year, the Harvest full moon and a total lunar eclipse.
On December 11th there was a New Moon Ceremony held during the United Nations Climate Talks in Paris. Indigenous women, including the original Treaty signers, and many others will be joining their prayers with the prayers of women around the world. “Let us unite in our love for all we hold dear to pray together. We call upon our sisters and their allies around the world to gather together on each new moon to pray for the sacred system of life, guidance and wisdom.” These words come from the historic Indigenous Women of the Americas – Defending Mother Earth Treaty Compact 2015. Women around the world are invited to join the upcoming New Moon Ceremonies in spirit, or in person.
