This year Coyhis Publishing is supporting White Bison’s Women in Prison Program by donating Wellbriety Training and training materials to 200 Native women in prison in Minnesota and Canada. In this program, White Bison will train 100 women in Minnesota and 100 women in two prisons in Canada. The four trainings that will be offered are: Mending Broken Hearts, to heal the intergenerational trauma; Medicine Wheel and 12 Steps for Women, to heal from alcohol and drugs; Mothers of Tradition, to help with parenting; and Warrior Down, the implementation of support groups for re-entry into their communities.
To complement this program we have another goal; to give each woman her own Red Road to Wellbriety book so she can mark it up and write notes in it while on her road to recovery. Currently many of the women are sharing a few books from the prison library, but we feel it is important to gift each one with a book of her own.
If you would like to contribute to this program, you can buy a book from Coyhis Publishing @$18.00/each and we will ensure its delivery. Also, if you would like to add a note of encouragement, please add your note in the "Special Instructions" field under the shipping address when checking out of the Coyhis store (Step 2). You can also place your order by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 1-866-518-5275.
We have visited these women in prison. They want to heal, they want recovery and most of all they want to be home with their children and families. We hope you can help.
