One of a series of conversations with “wise elders,” who met in the Adirondacks a year ago to explore how to prepare their networks for a natural disaster or other collapse, and are now “living the reality” of “multiple collapses simultaneously.” Sherri Mitchell summons stories from Native American mythology to describe this “pregnant moment of pause” as a time “of emergence” when “the teacher has arrived” and humans are being asked to decide whether to heed the lesson that the systems they have depended upon are failing” and must change.
