Walking backwards into the future — an ancestral indigenous cosmology

Indigenous peoples have lived intimately rooted in regenerative circles of life. Today's industrialized societies disconnect us from natural systems critical for survival. Walking backwards into the future is about slowing down and listening. This spoken word legacy connects past, present, and future for living in concert with the land. Larry Littlebird shares that for most Native people, the action has always been "to simplify your life so your spirit can teach you how to live".

Larry Littlebird (Laguna/Santo Domingo Pueblos) is founding director of HAMAATSA, a learning center that celebrates an indigenous holistic way of life. A master storyteller, Native filmmaker, and author of Hunting Sacred, Everything Listens, Littlebird shares spiritual roots of sustainability and ways of blessing for inspiring transformative leadership and social action.
