Any and all folks who identify as girls and women, including women on their Moon Time, it is also open to 2 Spirit and Trans identified folks

WHAT TO BRING
- Yellow cloth (usually half a meter of yellow broadcloth. I will keep extra cloth on hand for students/community members or those who may need to borrow some)
- Tobacco (just enough to put a handful into your cloth. Again, I will have extra tobacco on hand for students)
- Long skirt. (If you do not have a long skirt, we have a couple here for borrowing)
