Reciprocity Project

Season Two

Facing a climate crisis, the Reciprocity Project embraces Indigenous value systems that have bolstered communities since the dawn of humanity. To heal, we must recognize that we are in relationship with Earth, a place that was in balance until the Industrial Age. The second season of this project invites learning from time-honored and current Indigenous ways of being across seven Indigenous communities, including the mountainous Tayal homelands of Taiwan, the nightless nights and deep snows of Sámi Nation in Finland, and the vermillion dirt roads leading to the forested Limba homelands in Sierra Leone.

The Season Two storytellers and community partners are creating projects in response to a question: “What does return to land, language, practices, and reciprocal relationships mean to you and your community?”
