Miranda Miller stays close to home to spend time with the Indigenous Women Outdoors (IWO) organization as they prepare for the Sturdy Dirty enduro race. The IWO’s purpose is to ignite a spirit of empowerment, resilience, and connection among Indigenous women by providing them with the opportunity to explore and excel in outdoor sport activities.
“The Seventh Generation Principle is an indigenous concept originating from the Haudenosaunee (also known as the Iroquois Confederacy), in which you think about the next seven generations coming after you in your words, work, and actions; and to remember the seven generations who came before you.
We are not racing for us; we are challenging ourselves to lead our youth for the next seven generations.” – Indigenous Women Outdoors
