When the wisdom of the heart meets the power of the mind we will see peace upon the land. -Prophecy of Eagle and Condor
This is the common sentiment in many versions of the popular prophecy/folk-story of The Eagle and The Condor and today we are seeing it happening all around us. Environmental and social justice movements have taken the notion of solidarity to the next level by involving First Nations and traditional pageantry. Thanks to Idle No More, protest is now expressed ceremoniously with beauty and color, bringing attention to the most pressing issues of our time. From the exploitation of people and culture, to the exploitation of the land we are seeing the common thread and acting to make change.
This piece of compassion, of culture, of beauty is makes activism a spiritual expression and invites all people to participate. It is all inclusive to recognize that we each have our distinct cultures, yet we each share this beautiful planet and have a responsibility to care for it.
