Indigenous and earth-connected societies are NOT a thing of the past – the evidence of living and thriving knowledge systems that embrace sustainability, animism and the limits of natural law are all around us. Even during the long years of colonization - first eroding the earth-emergent traditions of Old Europe and then decimating Indigenous peoples worldwide - the values of interconnectivity and respect for sacred land were not completely suppressed.

When we stare into the abyss of massive change and climate disaster today, it is apparent that the civilizational project has been an abject failure, with its imperialism, dominator paradigm, toxic technologies, and economic hegemony based on an illusion of endless growth. At this time in history, looking to humanity’s living past for holistic solutions and social-spiritual transformation would seem to be apropos.

How do we denounce capitalism, decolonize from our conditioning, avoid the “cultural appropriation” phenomena, reclaim some kind of Indigeneity (yes, people all over the planet can claim Indigenous Roots), express our ancient spirits in a modern voice, and start to live as part of the living planet again? The world hangs in the balance, and pre-colonial wisdom just might be the key to a positive future.
