Bioneers Indigeneity Program works to promote indigenous leaders and traditional ecological knowledge (TEK) as a critical path to support all people in learning to honor bio-cultural landscapes and reconnect to place-based ways. Native peoples are keepers of the earth's "old growth" cultures, living in harmony with their Native environments for thousands of years. This indigenous science offers a different way of knowing that provides a crucial complement to the tools of western science.
Over the last decade, Bioneers commitment to indigenous peoples' social and ecological issues has brought together some of the greatest indigenous leaders of our time in one place. The Indigeneity Essentials set offers a compilation of 12 plenary session speeches by world-famous native activists and 4, hour-long radio shows highlighting the most pressing issues facing Indian Country then and now. This set contains both DVDs and CDs.
