Young women nearing the age of puberty, and girls and women of all ages who have not yet experienced their rites of passage, including grandmothers, are encouraged to attend. Sign up now at theturtlelodge@gmail.com. Young girls are expected to attend the full 4 days accompanied by a female mentor.

Grandmother Teachings on Coming of Age Ceremonies are conducted each spring at the Turtle Lodge by the Grandmothers, who provide teachings of how to honour and carry oneself as a Woman.

Any female can participate. Each year we encourage young women to spend time learning the sacredness of Woman by participation in the Grandmother Teachings on Coming of Age. It is time for Women to claim and embrace their rightful positions of honour and responsibility in walking with and leading all people — men, women & children, back to our sacred way of life.
