Previous The Arhuacos: A Message from the Mamos, the Prophets of the Sierra Nevada
“You have accomplished the impossible! 30 communities with 14 film crews in remote locations in 6 different countries… to pull all of that together and deliver this important message is a feat of epic proportions.”
“I am stirred deeply by the messages coming from these communities and individuals as they help us see the pandemic through a wiser and larger lens, helping us consider how to move forward and live into the teachings the Earth is giving us now.”
…”Something truly exciting that we must experience to understand where we come from and where we are going. Congratulations!”
“A very visionary job. Congratulations — proud to be able to appreciate and share it.”
These messages and many more arrived in my inbox yesterday, the day of the online premiere of our new transmedia series, “Cosmology & Pandemic.” From Germany to New Zealand, from Canada to Argentina, people were viewing our new website.
The vision and the voices of our Indigenous colleagues are making waves. We have gotten enthusiastic responses from as far away as New Zealand.
What do you think of the series? Please give us your feedback — your comments on this post, and on our social media sites (listed below), are the fuel that keeps us going — and they also have the very real impact of making us visible.
It’s been gratifying to see the enthusiastic responses that we have received. Still, our audiences in English-speaking countries are lagging far behind those in the Spanish-speaking countries, and we are thinking hard about how to break through for the US and Canadian and European publics. This message is at least as important for the so-called First World, which has led the charge to commodify the planet’s resources that has created the circumstances that the Mamos, the Misaks and the Kamentsás are warning us about.
It’s really the conundrum of our times. How to awaken and mobilize our sleepwalking relatives from the mirage of modern civilization so we can turn this boat around? We have launched a three-week campaign to bring this series to the masses, and we hope you will help. We hope this series will be a powerful platform from which to plant seeds of a deeper, wiser consciousness, a step forward into that better world we know is possible.
We are grateful to all of you who have supported us — and now comes the work of planting those seeds. We are asking you to take one more step and help us spread the word about this series in your networks. We are sharing widely throughout our social media platforms and also through our email lists.
