A legend from the Amazonian tribe I sojourned with in the '90s, the Siekopai, on the importance of respecting nature. See the video on YouTube or on TED-Ed. Gratitude to Celestino Piaguaje for telling the story in 1997, Miguel Payaguaje for telling it in 2018, Jonathon Miller Weisberger for recording Miguel's version and helping me translate it, and the TED-Ed team for transforming it into a beautiful video.
The talk I gave at TEDx Wyandotte in 2018 on the topic of ayahuasca healing, including the details of a particular experience and the lessons it taught me.
A 2019 presentation I gave at Kansas City Kansas Community College on the past and present of the Waorani, Sapara, and Siekopai people.
