Seedcast is back on March 15 with a new season, and host Jessica Ramirez will continue guiding us through a whole new series of stories at the intersections of Indigenous land guardianship, culture, and rights. Indigenous peoples protect 80% of the world’s biodiversity, and Indigenous cultures, knowledge, and practices of reciprocity are the best guide to the future we all want to live in.
In Season 3, we’ll go around the world to hear from Indigenous peoples who want to grow our knowledge together. Featured voices include Laura Obregón Cañola (Colombian of Indigenous / Embera Katío descent), Lofanitani Aisea (Black and Tongan, Modoc, Tahlequah, and Klamath tribes), Leo Cerda (Kichwa community of Serena in the Ecuadorian Amazon), and Eric Terena (Terena People of Brazil). Featured song: Tetchi'arü'ngu (Remix) by Eric Terena and Djuena Tikuna.
