Nanatasis Bluto Delvental komt sinds december 2003 naar Europa waaronder Ierland, Frankrijk en Nederland.
Gedurende de workshops deelt Grandmother Nanatasis haar levenservaring en overleveringen van oude wijsheden.
Tijdens deze workshops komen vrouwen bij elkaar in talkingcirkels, ceremonieën en zweethutten, waar we delen in ervaringen en het (her)kennen van oude wijsheden van onze voorouders. We worden geïnspireerd en aangemoedigd om de losse delen van half vergeten kennis van onze verborgen wijsheid weer te herinneren.
   
Onderstaande teksten hebben we niet vertaald omdat het in het Engels beter overkomt.
The Four Rites of Passage In the Native American tradition of the Western Abenaki Turtle Clan, it is said that a woman is born Complete, that she does not need a purification practice or sacrificial prayers and ceremonies. During her Moon Flow, she is a Walking Lodge which is the oldest and most holy ceremony on the planet. It is a time of vision that connects her to the centre of the circle of life (medicine Wheel) where she is in complete harmony with Mother Earth and Grandmother Moon and is a conduit of sacred knowledge and power. When she enters her Moon Pause she becomes a source of great wisdom and spiritual understanding and continues to celebrate her vision, uniting her experience with that of the ancestors, the Grandmothers, and mothers and daughters through prayer and ceremony.
 Nanatasis Bluto-Delvental is of the Turtle Clan of the Western Abenaki people. Originally from north-western Vermont, she spent most of her life on Lake Champlain living in Burlington and Grand Isle. Trained by her clan mother and numerous elders, Nanatasis lives as traditionally as possible in these times and shares the teachings with those who come to learn a life of harmony and balance. Nanatasis is an herbalist working with wild plant medicines as well as those organically cultivated. Since the 1980’s, beginning with her clan mother, she has allso studied various bodywork modalities including Therapeutic Touch, Reiki, and massage. An accomplished craftsperson, her crafts have been displayed at museums and galleries all over the country.  
Nanatasis has over the years taught herbal medicines and craftwork, and shared Abenaki culture at various encampments, schools, colleges, and organizations. Currently she is recognized as an elder and grandmother of the Abenaki people, is a member of a national Native American council of spiritual elders who study and share the prophesies of many indigenous people, is a hospice volunteer, and caregiver for people at the end of their life journey. She also spent numerous years working for the Abenaki tribal office in Swanton, Vermont in repatriation, sacred site protection, education and research (Abenaki Research Project).
