Grandmother Mona Polacca, Hopi/Havasupai/Tewa elder, Chair of the International Council of the 13 Indigenous Grandmothers, will be presenting at the FORUM2020. Grandmother Mona is a representative of the Indigenous World Forum on Water and Peace, a coalition of Indigenous leaders and organizations and others who wish to protect water for future generations. This is a vision from the elders and has the support of 60 organizations globally at the UN Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues. She is the President/CEO of the Turtle Island Project, a non-profit program founded in 1986 by Western practitioners and Native American healers to blend the science of psychoneuroimmunology (mind/body/spirit medicine) with indigenous wisdom and practices. Grandmother Mona also serves as a member of the World Council of Religious and Spiritual Leaders due to her international justice work.
