Heart of Mind, Radio for the New Millennium: A central source for health, consciousness, spirituality and self-liberation. 

Host Kathryn Davis shares an excerpt from a conversation between Shannon CrossBearJim Greywolf Petruzzi and Sue Blythe, originally recorded as part of a climate conversation-to-action program.  Discussion is sparked by recent revelations about mass unmarked graves of Indigenous children killed at residential school in British Columbia, Canada. Sparking talk of genocide and systemic racism and generational trauma. Including the difficulties faced by a people with little resources to implement change, and/or participate in campaigns that do not resonate culturally, or satisfy their cultural needs. And the responsibility of the dominant culture to clean up what they have created.

The Climate Collaboratory is an intergenerational pilot project of We, the World and the University of Florida Extension.
