A project of Indigenous Women's Network (IWN), Alma de Mujer Center for Social Change is a 22-acre retreat center located in Northwest Austin near Lake Travis. The Indigenous Women's Network was created in 1985 to support the self determination of Indigenous women, families, communities and Nations in the Americas and the Pacific Basin. In the process of promoting self-determination, IWN supports public education and advocacy, the revitalization of our languages and culture, the elimination of all forms of oppression, the attainment of self-sufficiency and the protection of Mother Earth for future generations.
A Committee of local residents and representatives from various organizations provide direction into the programming and operations at Alma. Alma de Mujer is run under the guidance and leadership of an Austin-based inter-generational Local Council.
Under its auspices, Alma de Mujer provides culturally based arts, environmental and leadership development programs that directly benefit Indigenous women, youth and children of southern Indigenous communities and that focuses on uniting Indigenous women from nations throughout North America thereby empowering them to address issues of common concern. Alma de Mujer is also a retreat center serving social change organizations from across the North American continent.
