Created by Sarah Farahat, daughter of early German settlers on Lenni Lenape lands (on her mother's side) & a recent Egyptian immigrant to the US/Turtle Island (on her father's side), whose ancestral lands are in Africa, Asia and Europe. She grew up near the shores of the Michi Gami and the banks of the Nile, and now lives between the confluences of the Willamette, Sandy and Nchi wana rivers in the stolen and unceeded ancestral lands of the Multnomah, Tualatin Kalapuya, Kathlamet, Clackamas, Molalla, Wasco, Cowlitz & Watlala bands of the Chinook, Oregon City Tumwater and many other bands and tribes.
Farahat's project is being advised by, monitored and mentored by several Indigenous leaders in the fields of law, creative resistance and cultural preservation. She is looking for more funds to continue to support their work and participation in this project as well as to grow the council. Please leave a comment if you have suggestions for raising funds for this purpose.
