How do you interact with the earth? She is listening… In this presentation Mkomose shares his personal experiences utilizing traditional ecological knowledge (TEK) to add richness and beauty to interactions with the natural world. Opening our hearts and minds to the mysteries of creation is a reminder that as human beings we have many responsibilities. Together, with support from our relatives, under the guidance of the Ancestors, our relationship with our mother earth can be renewed, and we can thrive again. Learn ways to immediately apply Indigenous strategies for project developments and a sustainable future.
