Registration for Cohort 2 of Decolonize Your Moon opens SOON!
This is our virtual moon lodge to gather, share, and learn about the following themes:
Why is our moontime ceremony?
Menstrual cycle phases
Cycle tracking to avoid or achieve pregnancy
Rewriting our first moontime stories
Guidance for preteens and teens
And much more!
In our dedicated online classroom, you’ll guide yourself through weekly modules containing informational videos, reading, and journal prompts for self-reflection. Share what unfolds for you in our BIPOC-only private Facebook community. To further integrate and connect, we’ll have two live meetings over ZOOM.
This is everything you WISH you had learned about your moon cycles, taught from an authentic Anishinaabe perspective.
This is a people of color only space – free of cultural appropriation and centered on the wisdom and experiences of Indigenous people. Youth ages 14+ are welcome to attend and watch/listen along with their adult parent or caretaker. Registration is priced per family – I encourage viewing as a family to bring awareness to menstrual cycle health and dismantle shame!
This class is for you if:
*You’ve ever wondered why our elders say we can’t do certain things while on our moontime
*You’ve ever felt left out of community or cultural events due to being on your moontime
*You’re the parent of a tween and you’re preparing to answer those awkward period questions

Raeanne is a familiar face in many tribal communities across the Great Lakes region. She has traveled extensively in her Rez Runner teaching and sharing in circle about menstrual cycle health with people as young as 5 years of age. She is bringing her menstrual cycle knowledge ONLINE for the first time ever – as a virtual hug to reach the communities in times of isolation and disconnection.
*If you are White, PLEASE respect the boundaries I have set and DO NOT contact me about being in this class. If you have financial privilege and would like to pay it forward, please sponsor a registration fee for a BIPOC person by purchasing a registration and leaving me a note that states this is a sponsorship.
**This is NOT an online class that teaches you how to conduct specific Anishinaabe moontime ceremonial practices. You’ll need to take tobacco to your elders to learn that.**
