 Sand Talk: How Indigenous Thinking Can Save the World

I want to thank Beth at Alive On All Channels for introducing me to so many sources of wisdom through the world's diverse traditions that communicate through books, visual arts, theater, dance, music, and often through oral tradition written down.  Most recently Beth has been posting excerpts from Tyson Yunkaporta's Sand Talk:  How Indigenous Thinking Can Save the World.  I had just begun reading a copy that came from our public library when I learned about the concept of walking the spirits of the 215 children home through this YouTube channel which has its source in the Lummi Nation, located 30 minutes from where I live in Washington State.

We are all just walking each other home -- Ram Dass.

Oddly, I quoted that same wisdom to my daughter last night, "We're all just walking each other home," I said, so it feels so beautifully serendipitous to encounter it's source in your post today. Oh, the spirits of those children, and the more than 400 more discovered a week or so later, what a beautiful thought, to be there spiritually for them, to usher them home. The news of them broke my heart.
