The intergenerational wisdom woven into Indigenous stories

The way we behave politically, socially, economically and ecologically isn’t working, says community organizer and activist Tai Simpson. Sharing the creation myth of her Nez Perce tribe, she advocates for a return to the “old ways” guided by Indigenous wisdom that emphasize balance, community and the importance of intergenerational storytelling in order to protect what’s sacred.

This talk was presented to a local audience at TEDxBoise, an independent event. TED’s editors chose to feature it for you.
