Here are the notes for episode #36 of Naked Humanity.

Why are we so indifferent and passive when it comes to protecting the environment? Today Stefani chats with specialist in Native American literature Siobhan Senier, and they lean into Senier’s keen insights about the nature of human relationships, rituals, and stories to get to the heart of difference between the “modern” world and traditional cultures. They wander into deep and reflective territory about the nature of the human species and ask hard questions of one another about the future of humanity, making this a must listen podcast for anyone at all interested in sustainability, the state of our world today, or the multitudes of things we can learn about the human condition by listening to native traditions–who appear to have known much of it all along.
