Intertwining the sacred
“Trenzando lo sagrado” (Intertwining all that is sacred) weaves together the voices of traditional seedgrowers from different cultures. They share their knowledge, their experiences, their stories, resources and seeds. This documentary emerged as a result of meetings from the network over the course of 2016. It highlights the role of those who serve as ‘guardians’ of seed knowledge for the following peoples: Onondaga, Mohawk, Seneca, Kawaik (Laguna Pueblo), Tesuque Pueblo, Quechua y Diné (Navajo).
Voices of Corn
“Voces del maiz” emerged as a collective process of narration. It resulted from a series of conversations and meetings organised by indigenous Abya Yala communities (North and South America) in order to bring people together to discuss important issues regarding rebuilding, strengthening, spreading and practising traditional knowledge about corn as well as defending and protecting the variety of seeds.
This publication features the voices of Seneca, Onondaga, Oneida, Mohawk, Mvskoke, Zuni, Tesuque, Laguna, Northern Navajo (as far as the Raramuri) Nahua, Teenek, Tzeltal, Cuchumatanes (Central America); the Kichwa y Quechua peoples of the Southern sierra.
