In this special Earth Day episode, Diana Hill talks with Four Arrows and Darcia Narvaez about the core precepts of an indigenous worldview. Together these precepts can guide us to live more harmoniously with each other and the earth. We explore the indigenous worldview’s emphasis on community welfare, respect for gender role fluidity, the sacred nature of competition, and living from our wise hearts.

  • Concerns about cultural appropriation
  • The Indigenous Worldview and sustainability
  • Neuroscience and Indigenous Worldview
  • Emphasis on community welfare
