🌿 🌀 The Ecocene is an emerging, real & imagined geologic era where all humyns are living in reciprocity with the Earth again
🌿 🌀 This dream future looks different for everyone & means something different in each local context
🌿 🌀 Earthworkers hold reverence for our Earth as Ancestor & extension of our own beings
🌿 🌀 We see the soil & all that grows as sacred
🌿 🌀 We understand that all ecological movements are intersected by disparate access to land, ancestral teachings, clean air and water
🌿 🌀 We acknowledge that the violence of colonization & settler superiority complexes historically & currently have impacted Indigenous sovereignty & stewardship to the detriment of ecosystems & all of the beings living there
🌿 🌀 We defer to Black & Indigenous guidance & promote Reparations and #LandBack practices to give autonomy, land & resources back to those most impacted by colonization, slavery & settlements
🌿 🌀 We believe that every person has a valuable contribution to the Ecocene
🌿 🌀 As we learn from Olivia Chumacero, our elder, teacher & Everything is Medicine Instructor: at some point, everyone comes from a tribe & carries the blood memory of living in reciprocity with habitat
🌿 🌀 Now we just have to be gentle on ourselves as we redistribute resources - asking for what our communities need & giving back what our communities have excess in
🌿 🌀 We strive to stay gentle with ourselves as we relearn sustainability, reverence for the elements & habitat restoration in 21st century, urban & decolonization contexts
🌿 🌀 We are the Ones We've Been Waiting For!
