From the concrete jungle to the Amazonian forest: Rescuing Indigenous Sounds with Antonio Teoli
35:30

On this episode we talk to Antonio Teoli from the Amazonic about:

  • The start of the Amazonic Project, where Antonio Teoli—an award-winning game composer and sound designer—lived in the Amazon for 4 years and fell in love with the culture and musicality and decided to rescue the instruments sounds to share with the world. 
  • Antonio tells us his fish out of water story, moving from the concrete jungle of São Paulo to the actual jungle of the amazon, pursuing his dream of making music for video games.
  • We hear about his love and admiration for his great grandmother a Brazilian Indigenous Woman who gave him the life gift of spirituality and connection to nature and the planet. 
  • We talk about the love that dogs can give to us, and how is important to rescue and protect street dogs, and how Antonio is using the funds from his Amazonic project to support stray dogs. 

 “ Recorded straight in the depths of the Amazon rainforest and on a studio located in the city of Manaus, upon months of a deep researching, we selected the main instruments that are part of the culture, religion and traditions of those who lives in the Amazon. With special attention to details, we captured every sound emitted by those instruments thus guaranteeing the creation of a powerful tool for composers and producers looking for a professional, emotional and spiritual sound to add on their music.”

5 Ways To Deepen Your Connection To The Earth with the Malama Challenge. Kaci from “Ka Lau O Ka Lahui” Hawai’i
15:18

Many of us have lost our connection to the natural world, we walk with metaphorical rubber shoes, not aware of the impact of our footprints in the environment and to ourselves. This broken relationship numbs us to the awareness that our wellbeing is intertwined with the wellbeing of our planet. 

This is where “Malama” comes in. An important Hawaiian word, and a core philosophy from the people of Hawaii. Malama encompasses the way we approach and heal our torn connection the natural world.  In this episode of the show we will talk from Kaci from “Ka Lau O Ka Lahui”, an organization that inspires local Hawaiians with the tradition of Malama, with programs and activities designed to serve as a catalyst aiding community members to reach their goals and fulfill their potential. Kaci will share with us a moʻolelo, a story passed down trough generations about the Hawaiian creation story, so we can learn the meaning of Malama. 

Then Kaci is going to inspire us with the Malama Challenge,  5 easy ways on how we, too, can form a deeper connection to nature, to start the healing of the earth we live on, and ourselves! 

Please connect and support Ka Lau O Ka Lahui!

“Ka Lau O Ka Lahui creates a welcoming, all-inclusive environment in which haumāna can come together and support one another in reconnecting to our ancestry and land. This work is primarily done through hands-on community service activities."

What Is Overshoot Day? How Can You Stop It? Overshoot Day with Sháán díín Cedar
02:22

July 29th came in just like another day

 

People went through their daily lives, like just another day... 

 

But after 155 days in 2021, we have reached Earth Overshoot day

 

(a day that marks the moment in time when demand for earth’s ecological resources exceeds what the planet can regenerate.)

 

And each year, this day comes in earlier and earlier...

 

Its halfway through the year, and humans have already surpassed what global resources can sustain in a single year

 

The lumber we can sustainably harvest, the fisheries we fish, the ore we mine, the pollution we put in our waters...

 

Our planet needs a break… 

 

Here’s how we can make a difference 

 

Think about our demand for stuff.

Is it necessary? 

Is it resource intensive? 

Can we shift your demand toward the “reuse” economy?

 

Advocate for initiatives that your employer can take. Ask:

Do we have a sustainability and equity commitment and are we actively executing on it?

How do we source our products? Are there alternatives?

How are we tracking and reducing our carbon footprint?

 

Show up at the ballot box.

Look up your local, state, and federal leadership and put the pressure on.

Support and elect leadership strong on climate and environmental justice.

 

Call, email, tag, tweet at your leaders. They see these messages. Have a relationship with your leaders and demand actions.

Hold them accountable, but also give praise where praise is due.

 

Engage at whatever level you can manage

This translates to pushing the overshoot date back and ultimately reestablishing ecosystem balance. 

 

Our planet needs us.

A great episode to start is Episode 21: "A poem for the Earth by an Indigenous Nahuatl Women Esmeralda Gonzales"

Welcome to Indigenous Earth Community Podcast

My name is Frank Oscar Weaver,  Growing up in Paraguay, I participated in many environmental projects with the Guarani People. Leading me to be initiated in a ritual called KUNUMI PEPY, a lip piercing ceremony.  Making me an official  member of the Pai Tavyteras . There I learn the Arandu Ka’aty, the traditional teachings of Earth Keeping.  

After I moved to the U.S I made many friends from different tribes and original habitants communities from all over the world, learning that every indigenous community also have similar traditions of protecting the planet. 

Now that the climate crisis is upon us, and our planet is changing, more then ever we need to listen to Indigenous communities who are at the forefront of climate resilience, and learn from them on how we can help heal the planet, and be more sustainable in our day to day life.

"Help Us Save Our Community" - A request from Osmar Valenzuela in Paraguay
04:02

Do you wanna help the environment, and at the same time support the indigenous people of Paraguay?

This weekend I got a message from my friend Osmar Valenzuela. 

He told me the story on how young members of the indigenous communities in Amambay, are being forced to abandoned their tribal lands and go into the cities in search of jobs.  Osmar has an idea, to start an organization named “The way of the earth can provide for us ” an association made of leaders from 10 different communities to help promote their agricultural goods, and having the communities be self sustaining, that way they can still continue passing on the values, history, arts, culture of the Pai Tavytera to the next generation.

The association will keep protecting the environment by practicing sustainable agriculture practices and protecting medical plants and the knowledge on how to use them. 

 Can you help us keep the Pai Tavytera culture alive and help them protect their enviroment? Any donation would be appreciated it. 

Send me a an email if you can help frankoweaver @ gmail . com 

 

Thank you!

Timely interview with a member of the Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders community in Atlanta: Arjho Carino Turner
47:04

Happy to introduce my friend Arjho from the Blaan Indigenous community of the Philippines, She’s a champion for climate change, community involvement, and is an international activist in indigenous peoples' rights.  If you're passionate about indigenous people's rights and want to create change towards more sustainable future, you going to love our conversation. 

We talked 2 years to the day after meeting each other during the Climate Reality training, from what she called her "second home," Atlanta, Ga, and we talked about what we learned during our training to fight the climate crisis. 

Our conversation was just a few days before the crime that shook the country. As Rev. Dr. William J. Barber II, who we both saw in an interfaith mass in the Historic Ebenezer Baptist Church, MLK old church,  said "The lives of those who were killed here in Atlanta this week say something to us: All of us must come together, Black, white, brown, Asian, native, gay & straight. It's time to get it right, right here & right now, America" #StopAsianHate

I do have a ask for you.

The Covid epidemic has underlined the fact that low income communities get the brunt of all crisis impacts.

American Indian tribes, and specifically the Navajo Nation, have been some of the hardest hit by the COVID-19 crisis.

On a per capita basis, the Navajo Nation is #3 right behind NY & NJ in terms cases and deaths. 

We are asking for your support to help raise funds and to help provide masks and hand sanitizer for these communities through a fundraiser being organized by Natives Outdoors, an organization elevating native and indigenous people in the outdoors.

Option 1: Purchase a Bears Ears Petroglyph / Covid-19 relief print on our site. All proceeds go towards purchasing masks and hand sanitizer to be shipped to those in need. https://tinyurl.com/yb476lye

Option 2: Donate directly to vetted relief organizations. https://tinyurl.com/y9xo3sn9

Information on both options are outlined on the natives-outdoors.org website.

Ahe’hee’ Thank you

"We can't talk about deforestation in Mexico without talking about herbicides and the mowing of Milkweed in the US. Both are harming the Monarchs, and solving these problems will help bring their populations back up. We have to cooperate."⁣

In this episode I talk to Jose Luis Alvarez Alcala, a Mexican tree nurseryman, who has for decades been growing trees for reforestation projects.

He tells me about what the arrival of the monarch of the butterflies in the Michoacán mountains signifies to the indigenous people of Mexico,  his decades long work of reforestation where the butterflies winter and the areas surrounding to help the local communities. The struggles that monarch creatures are facing and how  the fight to conserve the monarch butterflies needs to be fought in the two countries, reformatting in Mexico and planting milked in the us. Stay tuned as we learn about this magical creatures. 

Since 2017, Forests for Monarchs has partnered with the Mexican Hass Avocado Importers Association (MHAIA) to promote reforestation and forest and watershed restoration. Together, to-date they have planted 800,000 trees to to restore forests, convert farming land back to forest, and to help conserve monarch butterfly winter habitat as well as to improve water and soil conditions.
