How are you currently involved in the Transition movement?
I am presently just involved in learning, absorbing knowledge, & applying to my life where & when I can, however, I am trying to find ways to get involved, without having massive amounts of capital to finance Transition/Permaculture courses (since I am just an FBI-Flat Broke Indian, haha, some Native humour there!!).
In what ways do you identify with the Transition movement? Why are you interested?
I identify because it really is, in a way, nothing more, nothing less, than how my grandmother & people used to live here before white man colonized the land, then my people. I remember my great Uncle telling me about the 3 sisters, to keep the Mother happy & well. Now referred to as POLYCULTURE!
Why? To HEAL...myself, our communities, Our Mother.
What background and skills do you bring to this community?
I am a Native American woman who has been an activist for most my life. I bring determination, along with a strong ethical compass, for doing right by the Earth, the Animals & my brothers & sisters.
How can you help the growth/acceptance/vitality of the Transition movement?
I can help the acceptance by being an example to those around me & affecting opinion by spiraling out & 'showing' others what could be, then they show others in their circles, then we just keep spiraling outwards. I'd love to see more people of colour becoming more involved, learning & CARING about our health, our planets health, peak oil, climate change & 0 waste <3
Your Favorite Books/Websites/Blogs/RSS Feeds for Information about the Transition Movement
To be quite honest, friends, I really DIDN'T know there WAS a movement! I have always felt semi-alone in my thinking & living. I stumbled upon permaculture books at my library through an old friend at Woodbine & this is how I found this! I like Derrick Jensen, Holmgren & Mollison, Aric McBay & Lierre Keith, & permaculture books have REALLY fueled a spark in me!! GrowHaus in Denver.
Suggestions you have for improving our Registration questions. Getting to know you better.
I like the questions, I am not that computer literate, so it seems fine to me except I don't have access to Skype or have a personal website!
