MARY ELIZABETH THUNDER (1944-2017)
In 2017 Mary Thunder took her journey to the Spirit world.
On The 28 th of December 2017, the moment came that so many of us had feared, because life without her was unimaginable.
There are so many things we can say about this legendary Woman, she is one of her own kind. What we remember most of all is her compassionate, unconditional and ever loving heart.
It is in this ‘Spirit’ that we continue her life’s work and the Woman’s Dance is an important part of that.
We like to share her own words about her Vision with you:
My Name is Mary Elizabeth Thunder and I have had a Vision I would love to share with you.
In 1994, the year that the white buffalo ‘Miracle’ was born in Wisconsin, I had three identical Visions that happened at three different times at the sacred Sundance trees in Crow Dog’s Paradise, Chipps memorial Sundance , both in South Dakota and Big mountain in Arizona.
A Vision of a beautiful woman in rainbow lights, dressed in a white buckskin dress, lifting her arm and showing me Women in white dancing.
Sharing this with my Elders, and then simultaneously the Birth of Miracle, the prophecy of White Buffalo Calf Woman……. all agreed that I should bring the women together to Dance, Pray and Empower each other, for this time of the rising of the feminine on our Sacred Mother Earth.
The first dance was held in 1995 on Thunder Ranch in Texas and we have been dancing, praying and empowering each other ever since. It’s one of the most wonderful things I have ever been involved in. Hundreds of Sisters coming together, Dancing and having Fun.
In the Dance, I brought back Ceremonies that had been shared with me by my Grandma’s, especially Grandmother Grace Spotted Eagle.
In 2002 I started to take the Dance into the world, it is my dream to be able to come to each dance, fly my helpers in to bring the dance to all Women to get a chance to Dance, dream, celebrate and empower each other in Womanhood.
Love, Mary Elizabeth Thunder
