HOW IT WORKS
Here's an outline of how the Medicine Tribe platform works, and what to expect.
WHAT WE DO
We're a collective of heart-open seekers that have come together to support each other on our collective Red Road journey. We create and curate curriculums, teachings, trainings, concerts, ceremonies and other experiences that can be utilized by our extended collective.
As small, local tribes come together across the globe, we act as a central hub for all the tribes to discuss, contemplate, and receive support and resources that will bolster their journey.
We work together to engage in peaceful protests, non-violent resistance, community development, cultural events, music and art events, and other related social activities.
Individuals come together to create their own local tribe. Each tribe consists of no less than 10, and no greater than 20 members (including partners). Generally, four members will act as tribe leaders.
Tribe leaders are responsible for organizing events and communications for their local tribe, as well as contributing to the knowledge base and network of the greater Inipi Medicine Tribe collective.
Each tribe is completely unique. Some are for families only, some for singles, some are mixed, and so on. Then all tribes receive the same education, resources, and curriculums to implement into their unique tribe.
Once you’re in a tribe, we organize all the events through Eventbright to make sure everything goes smoothly and efficiently.
Tribes create their own local Gatherings, which are always free for all members. They can also create Community Events for the local community, hosted by the tribe. Some of these events have a small cost in order to cover the operations costs for the events.
The founding members of Inipi Medicine Tribe conduct Monthly Online Video Calls for the collective to participate and contribute. These calls help to ensure the integrity of the tribes and to inspire and challenge us all.
GATHERINGS & COMMUNITY EVENTS
Here are some examples of Gatherings and Community Events that you can use as inspiration or as a template.
This is a simple potluck style gathering in an outdoor space such as a beach, forest, desert, lake, or other natural settings. These are often family style events where everyone can feel free to bring the kids.
We suggest that you organize the meal around an Introduction Speech, Eating Time, Q&A, General Discussion and Future Plans. The meet-ups can include entertainment or games and usually lasts 2 - 3 hours.
This is a very simple event, largely designed to foster deeper connection, accountability, and inspiration.
CREATIVITY, AWE, & WONDER
We recognize the importance of creativity, awe, and wonder in our red road journey. This is how we taste the magnificence of our universe.
We love to conduct concerts, art exhibits, plays, ceremonies and other events that bring the awe. We believe in “sucking the marrow out of life”. And that means we like to go to the edges and explore the unknown.
If you’ve got that Jason Silva or Nahko Bear spirit and want to inspire the tribe, let us know!
RAISE THE COMMUNITY
Our tribe exists to deepen our community experience. Many of our tribe members are dedicated to fostering peace, reconciliation, organic development, higher education, and other types of positive community engagement.
Members often gather to help build something, create an art instillation, fix a problem, or otherwise invest in the vitality of their community.
If you have a community event you’d like to conduct, please let us know!
We are always excited to amplify the wisdom of our ancestors through cultural events, ceremonies, and other celebrations. Our collective provides ancestral teachings and other ideas for promoting indigenous ways and wisdom. That may also include building tipis or a sweat lodge for healing centers.
Sometimes an elder is brought in to teach a group, or an indigenous dance or concert is conducted. There are lots of ways to honor our ancestors by learning their ways and wisdom. If you have idea for an Ancestral Alignment event, please let us know!
There are so many ways to conduct a beautiful Medicine Tribe Gathering or Community Event. These are just a few examples to let you know what we’re in to. If you have an idea, just let us know!
(A big thank you!)
Thanks so much for your interest in the tribe!
We'll get back to you shortly with next steps. Hoka hey!
