Interview With Filmmaker Nazshonnii Brown-Almaweri

Remothering the Land | Live Event

As the terms “organic,” “sustainable,” “regenerative,” and “permaculture,” become more and more trendy, we forget where these practices originate from. Before they were coined in contemporary lingo, Indigenous tribes practiced these methods. Remothering the Land explores how Bay Area activists are re-engaging with Indigenous traditions and introducing them to younger generations. Remothering the Land features Rose Foundation Grantee Sogorea Te Land Trust, and activist Nazshonnii Brown-Almaweri. Watch our Q&A with Nazshonnii below.
