ABOUT Red Feather Ranch
Red Feather Ranch, a 501(c)(3) in Philomath, Oregon provides online support groups for women veterans and will be offering retreats and vocational training in sustainable agriculture and food production once it is safe to resume in-person activities. All of our programs integrate trauma-informed care through evidence-based, experiential, and holistic therapies for a variety of traumas.
ABOUT OUR NAME
July 2013 our founder traveled to Grand Ronde Oregon to attend the first Native American Veterans Summit. A wounded warrior ceremony was held honoring veterans who had been wounded during their time in service. Several men from multiple war eras were given red eagle feathers to acknowledge their injuries. The last person called up to receive a feather was Linda Woods, MSW, USAF veteran, AnishnaabeKwe Elder, and eagle staff carrier. Linda was presented with a feather to acknowledge her wound from military sexual trauma. This ceremonial acknowledgment became the symbol for Red Feather Ranch. A place to honor and provide healing from the hidden wounds of war.
