Description

“If you know where you’re coming from, you know where you’re going, and you cannot get lost.” 

At a tea house on the side of the road, on the way to Marsabit, Kenya, a Gabbra senior elder sat down with a member of his community to tell a story about how colonization has affected the rhythms of their peoples’ nomadic ways of life in the grasslands and deserts of eastern Africa, and how traditional knowledge has gotten them through. Drawing from interpretations of the moon, the sun, the stars, the birds, and the entrails of slaughtered animals, the Gabbra’s knowledge can be applied in the world we live in today. This is an invitation to be in dialogue.
 
Enjoy this sneak peek of our special two-part episode, and subscribe to Seedcast today so you can be the first to listen to both episodes when they come out.

For this special collaboration, the Gabbra community shared recordings of their songs and celebrations along with the lands and animals they shepherd.  The Gabbra is a member of the Wayfinders Circle.

We extend gratitude to Ali Mero and Gabbra elder Molu Kulu Galgalo, who were our collaborators for this series.

We also thank the Wayfinders Circle for their support on these episodes.

The Wayfinders Circle was launched as a network dedicated to unleashing the transformative potential of Indigenous lifeways, inspiring all people to reimagine development, conservation, and the way they relate to each other and to Mother Earth. The conveners of the Wayfinders Circle are the Pawanka Fund, the World Union of Indigenous Spiritual Practitioners, and Nia Tero.
