This series is a place for indigenous people to share their wisdom, their cultural heritage, their beliefs, and the challenges that they face. It is also for groups who work to help indigenous people to bring a voice to their needs and offer ways that you can get involved.

The purpose of the series is to open our hearts and minds to cultures who have treasured our planet and could share with us insights that we can use to become more connected with nature and each other. We hope that you will be inspired, informed and intrigued.

Everyone is welcome and the calls are free.  Simply sign up to be on the email list and you will receive each month's guest by email so you can listen at any time. 

We are looking for Original People and Indigenous guests for this year. If you are an indigenous person or you are someone who knows of a group who can use a platform to bring thier message please let me know at Terra@treesisters.org.

Thank you for being with us!

“Through consciousness, our minds have the power to change our planet and ourselves. It is time we heed the wisdom of the ancient indigenous people and channel our consciousness and spirit to tend the garden and not destroy it." ~ Bruce Lipton



This month listen to the inspirational conversation between TreeSisters Founder Clare Dubois, Suzi Steer, Education and Alliances for TreeSisters and special guest Dr. Vandana Shiva.

Vandana Shiva was involved in the Chipko Women’s Tree movement which involved women who lived rurally in India’s Chamoli district of Uttar Pradeshin. It was a nonviolent movement of 1973 aimed at protecting and preserving trees. More importantly, it mobilised women to safeguard  forests, change attitudes, and recall their positions in society.

Dr Vandana Shiva shares insights including:

  • Her roots in the Chipko Women’s tree protection movement.
  • Staying empowered in the face of climate change.
  • How pesticides are threatening life on Earth.
  • The re-birth of science through women’s bodies.

 

"As women we have an obligation to remind everyone that it is imperative that we have this closeness relationship with nature, not allowing ourselves to go a moment without realizing that we are part of the sacred elements." ~ Grandmother Flordemayo  

 

 "The most beautiful gift for the Earth is your thoughts." ~ Sylvie Decaillet
