Guest Blog by Linda Chilton: Traditional knowledge opportunity at NMEA 2016

Posted By Lisa D. Tossey, Monday, June 27, 2016

Have you ever wondered:

    * How can we get people to care about the Everglades (or our own natural spaces) when they haven’t been there?

    * How can we advocate for giving water the respect it deserves?

Then make sure to attend "A Full Spectrum Approach to Everglades Activism by Love the Everglades Movement" on Tuesday, June 28, from 1:30 – 2:15 p.m. in Oceans 2, and the Traditional Knowledge and Tribal Reps meeting just before the session from 12:30 – 1:15 pm Oceans 2.

Our presenter, Houston R. Cypress, is a Two-Spirit Poet, Artist, and Activist from the Otter Clan of the Miccosukee Tribe of Indians of Florida. He resides on the Miccosukee Reservation located west of Miami, Fla. He maintains a number of traditional villages located on tree islands scattered throughout Water Conservation Area 3A. This area is known as the historic River of Grass and called by his community KAAHAYATLE, which can be translated as "Shimmering Waters."

Houston is committed to supporting his society of clans by assisting in cultural preservation, environmental protection, community outreach, business development, media & event production, and strengthening sovereignty.
