Wisdom Circle with Grandmother Margaret Behan

Please join us for this rare opportunity to sit with a Cheyenne Elder.

Grandmother Margaret Behan, an enrolled member of the Southern Cheyenne nation, will present and discuss a number of topics of interest and concern, including protecting the environment, sacred activism, indigenous rights, historic trauma and reconciliation.

Grandmother Margaret’s native name is Ma’eve’ho’ka’e which means “Red Spider Woman.” Her mother was full-blooded Cheyenne and her father was half Arapahoe and half Cheyenne. She shared her childhood with four sisters and four brothers in Watonga, Oklahoma.

In 2003, she moved to the Northern Cheyenne reservation in Lame Deer, Montana. Subsequently, she was invited to join the International Council of 13 Indigenous Grandmothers and traveled the world with them until 2012. She has since set up her own non-profit, the Cheyenne Elders Council, and is working to fund a film of the great Cheyenne exodus from Oklahoma to Montana. Recently, she relocated from Lame Deer to Oklahoma.

This event is organized by: Circle Creative Collective, Harambee, Good Work Institute, Neetopk Keetopk, A.J. Williams-Myers African Roots Library, Wild Earth, Seedshed, and Seed Song Farm.

Donations for Grandmother Margaret Behan are welcomed at the door; no one will be turned away.
