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

The series aims to open our hearts and minds to cultures that have treasured our planet and could share insights that we can use to connect more with nature and each other. We hope that you will be inspired, informed and intrigued.

Everyone is welcome.  Simply sign up to be on the email list, and you will receive each month's guest by email or visit our library from the series and listen at any time. 

We are looking for Original People and Indigenous guests for this year. If you are an indigenous person or know of a group who can use this space to bring their message, please contact 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



"The greatest distance in the existence of Man is not from here to there nor from there to here. Nay, the greatest distance in the existence of Man, is from his mind to his heart. Unless he conquers that distance, he can never learn to soar like an eagle and realize his own immensity within.” - Angaangaq Angakkorsuaq

With so many new people signing up to our series and some incredible guests in our vaults, for this month's Indigenous Wisdom for the Earth, we're returning to one of our favourites with Angaangaq Angakkorsuaq, a traditional healer of the Far North from Kalaallit Nunaat, Greenland.

In addition to being a traditional healer, Angaangaq is a shaman, storyteller and carrier of the Qilaut (winddrum). His family, particularly his grandmother, trained him to become a shaman, with his mother giving him his spiritual task of "Melting the Ice in the Heart of Man". Now he speaks to people all over the world, sharing environmental, spiritual and indigenous issues.

Recorded in 2019 at the Climate Conference in Findhorn, Angaangaq sat down with TreeSisters Founder Clare Dubois to discuss his work, communication and respect for animals and plants, his hopes for tree planting in Greenland, and so much more.

"Because we are children of one mother. Our one mother is Pachamama. She is giving is vitality, energy. She is giving support and holding us. Everywhere she is with us. Thanks to her we are here." ~ Nelly Vilca Huaman

"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
