KATIE HOFFNER is a community leader and social change maker, directing her all of her efforts to protecting the environment and improving the lives of women. Katie is also the niece of Lydia Ruyle and guardian of Lydia’s 300+ goddess icon banners.
For Katie, the banners represent her Kuleana, a word coming from the Hawaiian traditions that means a responsibility of the living to care for and protect the stories of the ohana (family). She is actively engaged in passing on her Aunt Lydia’s knowledge, her artwork and HERstories of the goddesses to the next generations.
Each morning of our conference, Katie will be presenting HERstories of the ancient goddess images from her Aunt Lydia Ruyle’s banner collection to inspire connection to the Tribal Star Queen Goddess energies throughout different cultures and time periods.
