THE STORY:

We are all mourning the loss of the incredible Amoja ThreeRivers, Amoja bat Asherah bat Hagar.

Our Sister/Friend, Amoja Three Rivers, crossed over to the Land of her Ancestors, on 12-13-15.
She comes from a long line of proud Amazons, fierce Native Warriors,  strong African womyn, and deep Jewish Traditions.

She co-founded Womyn of Color only Sanctuaries at the MWMF, and NEWMR; Market Wimmin WOC Traders; MAAT DOMPIN Womyn Of Color Land Project, to name a few. She authored, CULTURAL ETIQUETTE, a Guide for the well intentioned, which was widely distributed in English and German.
She committed her life to bringing people of all Cultures and Colors together. She believed that "whiteness" is a verb, not a skin color.
Amoja's journey led to her to Judaism, where she toook the name, Amoja bat Asherah vHagar. She is a Kohenet, a Hebrew Priestess and was a member of Makom Shalom, in Minneapolis.


She was rich with love, community, spirituality, wisdom,  humor and compassion.
A way that YOU can honor this revolutionary womyn is to help pay for her cremation; the sorting and cleaning out of her apartment;  and to pay the travel expenses for her younger sister, to attend Amoja's Memorial on the Michigan Festival Land in March, 2016.
This posting is supported be Amoja's sisters,  adorers and her friends and co-workers from the MWMF since 1978. Dates for Memorial will be posted later. 

She was a bright light to everyone in her life and is deeply missed by her immediate family: the Womyn of Color community of the Michigan Women's Festival; people from Michfest and other festivals; Makom Shalom, her Jewish women's sacred circle; and other peoples. Friends and family supported and honored her passing in multiple powerful ways. As she wished, friends and family sat shmira after she passed and before she was cremated, to ensure that her spirit was supported and guided through that time.

Anything you can give goes a long way.
