In 2006, a white supremacist paramilitary group used their 50 caliber machine gun to launch an intimidation campaign against the Woodleys at Eloheh farm. At that time they were running a thriving Indigenous learning center, farm, and cultural center. They hosted weekend schools of over 50 students, job incubation for Native Americans, and opportunities to learn Indigenous world view. Eloheh was a place of hospitality, community, ceremony, and shalom.
Concerned for the safety of their children and students, they closed the school. Without the schools they lost income, and donors stopped giving. Suffering great financial loss they were forced to leave, selling the land far under its true value. After a decade in Oregon they are ready to #ResurrectEloheh. They have found an amazing property in New Mexico and want establish an Indigenous Center for Earth Justice, Indigenous Learning Center, Indigenous Spiritual Community, and Farm based on traditional knowledge and permaculture.
Randy and Edith are an amazing couple, with something unique to offer. With so much vitriol and conflict in the culture, the opportunity to build something, to invest in a place of learning and shalom is essential.
Be a part of #ResurrectEloheh. And when it is ready, come be a part of the community!
