Lyla June – Nihimá Nahasdzáán: Healing Women and Nature Through a Diné (Navajo) Lens | Bioneers

Lyla June respects what we call ‘Indigenous Protocol’ and she chose to offer her space to highlight the voices of the Indigenous Community of the land that she was visiting.

This talk was delivered at the 2018 National Bioneers Conference. Introduction by Nina Simons, Bioneers Co-Founder and Relationship Strategist.

Lyla June — poet, musician, anthropologist, educator, public speaker and community organizer of Diné, Cheyenne and European lineages — has inspired audiences around the world with a message of personal, collective and ecological healing. Drawing from her studies in Human Ecology and the traditional ancestral Diné worldview with which she grew up, she’ll explore the links between environmental destruction and “rape culture” and how we can heal and transform ourselves and our society. Lyla will delve into how the healing of women can unleash the healing of men and how we have to heal humanity to heal the Earth. She’ll share paradigm-shifting techniques from the heart of the hogan that help mend the broken heart of the Western world.
