GUEST: Evan Pritchard, descendant of the Micmac people, founder of The Center for Algonquin Culture, and Professor of Native American history at Marist College, talks about the Two Row Wampum Renewal Campaign: Honoring Native Treaties/Protecting the Earth.
We actually had two guests on today. Evan was there in the studio and Andy Mager, project coordinator for the Two Row Wampum Renewal Campaign, called in.
So much Native American history that I didn't know. Some of the ideas from these cultures may prove to be essential for our very survival on earth. We must come to accept the sacredness of our environment if we expect our grandchildren to live long and fruitful lives.
The Onondaga's early role in resisting fracking in New York State is a testament to their wisdom, and to our need to reorder our basic values.
