Episode 1 – Reclaiming Indigenous Sovereignty

Our first guest on Nomads at the Intersections podcast is Wynnē Weddell, Native American of the Yankton Sioux Tribe. A hiker, nomad, and full-time beadwork artist – Wynnē joins our host, Noami, for this in-person interview on the traditional lands of the Pascua Yaqui and Tohono O’odham in the Southwest. Listen as she shares her story of leaving her homeland to follow her nomadic passions in the forests of the Pacific Northwest and beyond. Wynnē also recounts her experience at the Dakota access pipeline, shares stories about her great grandmother as a front-line activist during the American Indian Movement, and how Indigenous peoples must lead the conversation on environmental activism and so much more. Check out our Show Notes for journal prompts that dig deeper into how your story and Wynnē’s experience intersect.

JOURNALING PROMPTS EXPAND THE CONVERSATION

  1. Acknowledging Indigenous Peoples is important; what does that look like in your travels going forward?
  2. What did your elders teach you that you still carry with you everyday?
  3. Culture is a very personal experience to the people who create it; what is your experience with cultural appropriation?
  4. As our relationships with nature evolve, what are you receiving from the land and what are you giving to it in return?

Show Up for Native Activists

Movements require visibility, momentum and follow-through. Indigenous Peoples are fighting for their land back, accountability of broken U.S. treaties, sovereignty, and the protection of their missing peoples and culture. They show up, day after day, and follow through on their demands and intentions. Their voices are clear when they speak about erasure and land stewardship. Visibility is where others can show up for the movements of Indigenous people through donations, amplification and literally showing up with their bodies for protests.
