Our relations in the area with whom its my privilege to work, suffer the consequences of the effects of this in their medicine plants and foods, and in the air that they breathe, daily. They die of cancer at a horrific rate.. And because they are thus forced to depend on foodstuffs flown thousands of miles, some work in those oil sands mines in order to afford the exorbitant costs of canned food and bottled water.. It’s a cancer on the earth on more ways than one and its where battle lines are being drawn today.

A transplanted New Zealand Scots/Maori academic/grandmother/random singer and sometime activist, my life is shaped by a deep conviction of the necessity for active critical engagement in the multi-faceted global and local crises of being and survival of species that confront us in the 21st century, the urgency of re-visioning the meaning of thriving together, and the contribution of Indigenous knowledge systems to a truly sustainable and just global society.
