When was the last time you got to speak to a real life Mohawk? What if they said to forgive past colonial sins and lived their days in a way to prevent cultural extinction? This would be a conversation I would never skip out on. Whether we believe it or not, Native Americans/First Nations tribespeople are still alive and breathing. They have so much wisdom and knowledge to offer us in the modern age. We must learn to listen. Today we speak with Ryan DeCaire, a Mohawk Indian who grew up on a reservation but didn’t learn his Native language until early adulthood. With resilience he conquered the mountain and is now an imporant voice in his community.

If there’s a journalist we all think of immediately, it’s either Superman or Spiderman. They definitely have to straddle two identities. Dolly Li may not have a suit and tights, but she’s still a superhero in the world of Asian American journalism. This incredible woman is a New Yorker of Chinese extraction sharing the stories of Asians worldwide while building cultural empathy. She’s done an incredible job. She worked for AJ+, was the Vice President of the Asian American Journalist Association, and is currently working at the South China Morning Post in Hong Kong. This is a special episode for me because I’ve never spoken to a journalist before. She's one with a very well formed opinion and heart seeking to share the stories of people rather than her own.

Listening without an agenda is difficult. Try doing that when walking 4,000 miles across America. I love walking, but that’s something else. Andrew Forsthoefel takes things to another level. Today’s guest walked the distance armed with a message: Walking to Listen. He is speaker, writer, and peace activist, currently living in Massachusetts while making a difference in the lives of those around the country and the world. What makes this episode extra special is because he’s the second author of a book I read that has agreed to come on and share their story! The first was TED Talk speaker Elizabeth Pisani. She spent a year on her own traveling Indonesia in order to write her book. There seems to be a trend here... In Today’s Episode: Why bother listening? The purpose of poetry even when you see none. Being a white guest amongst Native Americans Redefining the idea of love And much more! Where to find Andrew Personally, I really recommend reading his book. That’s how I found out about him in the first place! More importantly his book is a journey and you get to actually be there right with him as events are unfolding. The amount of patience and love Andrew has is astounding. Check out this episode along with the complete shownotes through this link.
