Indigenous Rights Attorney, Author, and Spiritual Activist Sherri Mitchell (Wena Hamu Kwasset) discusses four Native American Prophecies and outlines what our responsibilities are in managing the transformation of our consciousness and the direction of our movement during these critical times.
Sherri Mitchell was born and raised on the Penobscot Indian reservation. She received her Juris Doctorate and a Certificate in Indigenous People's Law and Policy from the University of Arizona's James E. Rogers College of Law. She is an alumna of the American Indian Ambassador program, and the Udall Native American Congressional Internship program. Sherri is the recipient of the Mahoney Dunn International Human Rights and Humanitarian Award, for research into Human Rights violations against Indigenous Peoples, and the Spirit of Maine Award for commitment and excellence in the field of International Human Rights.
Last year, her portrait was added to the esteemed portrait series Americans Who Tell the Truth which highlights citizens who courageously address issues of social, environmental and economic fairness. Sherri was a longtime advisor to the American Indian Institute's Healing the Future Program and currently serves as an advisor to the Indigenous Elders and Medicine People's Council of North and South America. She is the Founding Director of the Land Peace Foundation, an organization dedicated to the global protection of indigenous rights and the preservation of the indigenous way of life. Sherri speaks and teaches around the world on issues of indigenous rights, environmental justice, spiritual activism and transformational change. Her broad base of knowledge allows her to synthesize these many subjects into a cohesive whole, weaving together the legal, political, and spiritual aspects surrounding a multitude of complex issues.
Sherri is also the co-host of Love (and revolution) Radio, a syndicated radio program that highlights stories of heart-based activism and revolutionary spiritual change. Her work is being featured in a documentary on transformational change makers, which will be released in October 2017 by New Story Film. And, her book Sacred Instructions; The Heart of Spirit Based Change will be available in September of 2017, from North Atlantic Books.
