Today we launch Season 2 of All My Relations: “Growing New Beginnings”! This episode was recorded around the new year when the world was functioning without Covid-19, and we were emerging from our off-season hibernation, reveling in new life, and trying to figure out a healthy and wellness-focused way forward. Then, things changed, and we sat on the episode for a bit. We decided to bring the conversation up to speed with the current moment and talk about how we’re riding out the pandemic in our homes, mourning losses and feeling scared, but also continuing to grow.
In Season 2, we are dedicating several episodes to wellness. We have amazing conversations on Whole Family Wellness with Thosh Collins and Chelsea Luger of Well For Culture, Healing the Land and Ourselves with Kim Smith, Building Indigenous Futures through Higher Education with Bryan Brayboy and Amanda Tachine, and a multi-part series on the movement to protect Mauna Kea in Hawai’i featuring a whole crew of scholars, activists, students, and community members. We continue to explore what it means to be a good relative to our families, the land, and one another, and especially during this time, how to take care of ourselves and our communities. We may sprinkle in some bonus content too, reacting to what is happening as the world continues to change around us. We are so excited to share all of this with you!
