The past three years have been challenging for all; a time marked by great social change, all while we witness the growing impacts of an environment in revolt. In the Face of these challenges, the Flint Hills Wisdom Keepers kept the fire burning and we are blessed to continue in our mission to respect, honor and share, through the Elders, their beliefs, their cultures and the much needed wisdom they graciously offer.
As always, this mission and the Gathering could not exist without your support and we are deeply grateful for each and everyone who have become part of our extended family. This family has been many long years in the making and the continued growth of that family should be an effort shared by each of us. As such, we invite you to bring to the Gathering those kindred spirits who will help enrich the experience for all.
Please come and join us in April for time of healing, prayer and sharing. You will leave the Gathering renewed and energized, ready to face the challenges of your daily life. Don't hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or concerns.
Wishing you blessings and light,
Mark Jones, President, FHWK Board
The mission of Flint Hills Wisdom Keepers is to provide a forum for Native Elders to share their culture, oral traditions, and ceremony. We gather to honor and preserve the Native Nations' wisdom of living in balance and harmony with Mother Earth.
Each Wisdom Keepers Gathering hosts a group of five or more Native Elders and presenters from across North America and the Caribbean. This variety of cultures and the landscapes they come from helps set the stage for dispelling stereotypes and for opening people’s minds to other ways of being in the world.
