Earth Wisdom for a World in Crisis
Century Larkspur 2 Fri, Oct 13, 2017 6:15 PM
FOCUS: STEWARDS OF THE EARTH At this urgent time of climate change, indigenous people around the globe hold untapped wisdom and experience in human adaptation for survival. Will international leaders heed our native brothers and sisters and learn how to live sustainably before it’s too late? In this episode of the Global Spirit series, Emmy-winning local filmmaker Stephen Olsson focuses on indigenous leaders and tribal representatives who come together at the UN Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues. Living in reciprocity with nature, they know how to spiritually and materially restore harmony and balance after destruction of land and water. Indigenous wisdom keepers and non-native allies gathered as the prophesied Rainbow Tribe to nonviolently protect the water at Standing Rock Sioux Reservation where they slowed progress of the Dakota Access Pipe Line, the foretold Black Snake. Here, and at the UN, they are the voice of the earth. Time to listen.
