Wisdom Keepers

About This Collection

There are fifty+ channels on YouTube bringing the voices of wisdom keepers to the fore, most publishers are indigenous communities. We support the sharing and preservation of sacred wisdom teachings, the very foundation of sustainability principles and practices, and offer EarthSayers as a "connecting tool" working towards the idea of One Voice through this special collection and other vidoes on EarthSayers such the series, Native Perspectives on Sustainability and special collections on Indigenous Elders Dr. David Courchene, Ilarion Merculief, and Dr. Robin Kimmerer

We are grateful to the individuals and organizations who are using the world wide web to present and spread the indigenous voices of wisdom.

About Hope by Ilarion Merculieff (Aleut), Barbara Ford, Duane Elgin

The panel discussion between elders and youth was around a central conference topic: "What gives us hope and heart to keep working on what is best for our Earth in the face of difficult changes?" The evening closed with song, drumming and celebration.
In this excerpt we cover part of the discussion around "hope" opening with Larry Merculieff followed by Barbara Ford and ending with Duane Elgin.
