Urgent Evoke

A crash course in changing the world.

Cease Wyss, our "Indigenous Plant Diva", is a hip, urban Aboriginal single mother, video artist and community leader. She shares her traditional knowledge of plants that can be found throughout the streets and everyday spaces of Vancouver, reminding us that the medicines are all around us in our urbanized environments. Whether it's the secret curl of a fiddlehead, the gentleness of comfrey, or the blood-red streaks of frog leaf, plants carry with them millennia of wisdom, communicated through color, texture and form. Cease Wyss has been listening to this unspoken language, and is now passing this ancient and intimate sense of connection to her own daughter, Senaqwila. The plant spirits are the Grandmothers, and they have good things to share with us to help us (re)connect to the land, if we listen.

Looks interesting, but the video doesn't seem to be working.

Something seems to be wrong with the embed code, if you go to the website it seems to work just fine http://www.cultureunplugged.com/play/2819/Indigenous-Plant-Diva
