Mother Earth is calling on us to act—the collective wisdom of thousands of years of Indigenous knowledge can guide us
Wheat Ridge, CO – November 14, 2023 – Indigenuity, or Indigenous ingenuity, stems from an ancient idea and practice that Native Peoples have engaged in for millennia. It was born of a careful mindfulness and attentiveness to our planet and all of its creatures, and a recognition that human experience is intertwined with all that surrounds us. On Indigenuity: Learning the Lessons of Mother Earth is a call for all of us to learn a key lesson—that it’s time to pay attention to the land, air, and water that surround us, and apply ancient Indigenous wisdom to solve modern problems.
Leading Indigenous thinker Daniel Wildcat (Yuchi/Muscogee) contends that we have created an “insulated ignorance” for ourselves, and what we need to solve the problems of the twenty-first century is a different perspective. He discusses important Indigenous knowledge that serves as the foundation of science, the environment, biology, and our culture, arguing that restoration through the practice of Indigenuity is essential if we are to make progress toward saving our planet.
New York Times best-selling author of Braiding Sweetgrass, Robin Wall Kimmerer, notes, “On Indigenuity is a compelling framework to rethink the role of the western worldview in shaping our physical and cultural landscapes. These critical reflections invite deep engagement with Indigenous ways of knowing and being, to heal land and our relationships to the living world. [Wildcat] helps us to remember ourselves as kinfolk, in service to mutual thriving of people and planet.”
Drawing upon history, personal experiences, and extensive research, Wildcat invites readers on a profound journey of discovery, bridging the gap between how we’ve already tried to heal our planet and the traditional Indigenous knowledge that is the key to a better future.
