AARON CARAPELLA (Cherokee) is the Producer of a series of tribal nations maps. (www.tribalnationsmaps.com) The map displays the original pre-contact homelands of the hundreds of tribal nations that existed across what is now Canada and the "lower 48" of the United States. Most of the names shown here are the Indigenous autonyms that tribes use for themselves.
Ghosthorse also discusses SACRED SEED a book of essays inspired by physicist and environmental leader Dr. Vandana Shiva. "Essential to survival, seeds have profound spiritual implications. For centuries the planting of seed in the earth not only nourished humanity, but also symbolized the mystery of life and the journey of the soul."
