Osprey Orielle Lake for “The Story Is In Our Bones”
April 12, 2024 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
It’s time to rewild ourselves and our dominant worldviews to build earth-centered communities for all.
The dominant cultural worldview is based upon extraction and exploitation practices that have brought us to the precipice of social, environmental, and climate collapse. Braiding poetic storytelling, climate justice and deep cultural analyses, and the collective knowledge of Earth-centered cultures, The Story is in Our Bones opens a portal to restoration and justice beyond the end of a world in crisis. Author, activist, and changemaker Osprey Orielle Lake weaves together ecological, mythical, political, and cultural understandings and shares her experiences working with global leaders, systems-thinkers, climate justice activists, and Indigenous Peoples. She seeks to summon a new way of being and thinking in the Anthropocene, which includes transforming the interlocking crises of colonialism, racism, patriarchy, capitalism, and ecocide, to build thriving Earth communities for all. Lake calls forth historical memory of who we are in the Earth’s lineage to bring into being the world we keenly long for, at the delicate threshold of great peril or great promise. For anyone grieving our collective loss and wanting to take action, The Story is in Our Bones is a vital guide to remaking our world. This hopeful, engaging, and creatively lyrical work reminds readers that another world is possible, and provides a desperately needed antidote to the pervasive despair of our time.
Osprey Orielle Lake is founder and executive director of the Women’s Earth and Climate Action Network (WECAN), and sits on the executive committee of the Global Alliance for the Rights of Nature.
