ancestor wisdom (1)

This image is from a youtube talk by Indigenous Ecologist Robin Kimmerer. A powerful and loving presentation to youth on how to become resilient to survive and thrive in climate change. She shares potentially very fear-inducing information but does it without instilling fear. Instead she is teaching how to deal with what is real. She encourages us to trace our roots, and draw from our ancestors and First Peoples in order to assist love and wisdom to flow more fluidly between settlers and Indigenous peoples, the past and the present, and hopefully, into the future, for all generations to draw from in cultivating sustainable skills and knowledge and ways of being that will best adapt to the changing earth. Joining and sharing the best of the wisdom traditions of both Western science and Traditional Ecological Knowledge (TEK). The link is below to watch her teach in a non-fear-based way.
