My name is Monaka from the Meskwaki Nation, IO. Within my culture, nature is woven through every part of my spiritual practice. The highest form of respect for my people is to be a good steward of the land. It’s important to take care of our planet so future generations can continue to thrive in balance with the land. Personally, it will allow my community to continue to practice spiritual traditions that has kept us alive. In my own journey I am awaking to the ways that my actions impact the earth! Collectively we need to acknowledge that our actions decide our fate and the fate of Mother Earth because we are all connected.
