The challenge of being an indigenous woman protecting mother earth."
About The Salon
If we ignore the pain of our children, the words of our Elders and the laments from the spirit of the our sister water (polluted with chemical excrement), our brother air (filled with poisoning gases), our mother the earth (gutted, deforested, filled with radio-active materials, and piles of unending trash), then our father the sun will not be gentle.
It is time to remember how to respect all of that which sustains life, it is time to remember that every single thing that we use, we eat, and have, comes from the gifts given freely by our sister water, our brother air, our mother earth and our father the sun. It is only we humans who have set up systems of profit that require we pay even for a glass of water.
It is time to remember how to walk on our planet by giving back twice as much as we take, it is time to remember how to be human beings. That is why I coordinate Spirit Runs to protect sacred sites. My traditional heritage teaches me to respect, to honor and to thank the spirit of all living things. My ancestral lineage has passed on the wisdom discovered through running. Please join me, on April 20th lets gather to give voice to our remembering.
Olivia Chumacero is a resident of mother earth. She coordinates Spirit Runs throughout the continents of the Americas, to respect sacred sites, and to honor traditional indigenous knowledge
