Connecting Cultures, Communities and the Environment in the Web of Life, for the Good of All.
The Holy Hill Center
(Now known as Aanii Grandmother Kee)
was founded in 1995 by Keewaydinoquay for the purposes of sharing the history, traditions and teachings of all Native Peoples, especially those of the Great Lakes Region.
The Vision of the the Center is to serve as a catalyst to awaken, educate and inspire all people to an awareness of the Interconnectedness of All Life.
We are all related. All Life is connected. What is done to one is done to all and connects to the sustainable web of the mineral world, plants, animals and humankind.
Respect the Gone-Befores, and the Elders and the Children. Care for Mother Earth. Stand together in the Circle and live life to the fullest, making responsible choices.
Everyone is needed. Everyone has a part.
Aanii Grandmother Kee
serves as a repository of information regarding indigenous societies.
We provide publications, lectures, classes, workshops and exhibits.
Subjects include: Traditional Uses of Herbs, Philosophy, Native Prayer, Spirituality, Arts and Crafts of Woodland Peoples, Survival Skills, Outdoor Education, and Integration of Traditional Values into Modern Life for People of All Ages.
Aanii Grandmother Kee is the legacy of Keewaydinoquay, an Elder of Native American and European heritage. Keewaydinoquay left her archival collections, books and teachings of indigenous peoples,
"To preserve the knowledge of the Elders
In order that Wisdom gained by Past Generations
Is made available to This Generation,
To ensure the survival and prospering Of the Seventh Generation."
Woman of the Northwest Wind
A native of Michigan raised in both Native American and European traditions, Kee is the only person of her era known to study both traditional Ojibwa and Western uses of plants for medicines. As a young girl she studied with native herbalists.
