Changing Woman Initiative


Changing Woman Initiative is a Native American-led organization with the mission to empower our diverse indigenous communities to protect cultural birth resiliency and the fundamental indigenous human right to reproductive health, dignity, & justice. Our work through the years has led the revolution around reclaiming traditional birthing practices in our Native American communities.

CWI believes that healthcare is a human right. We believe that our sacred life way teachings are a map for how we should care for ourselves. CWI seeks to provide decolonized healthcare and recognize that communities are experts. We acknowledge, honor, and respect traditional knowledge & birth keepers in communities and seek to work with them to help pass on life way teachings, as that we see this to be the center of healing for women, families, and nations.
