Cascadia: The Once and Future Utopia
I’ve been hard at work, putting ten years of explorations of Cascadia into a beautiful presentation. It is an honour to be asked by Okanagan Express to take you on a journey from Yellowstone to Alaska, and from sacred sites to old sites of history and new ones of peril and hope as we work out way out of the idea of Utopia into the necessity of living on this land together. I’ve just run through my slide show. It works! These things are never easy, but it works. Come and find out why the site recorded in the image below is so important to us here in the Okanagan, just as it is in the Yakama Country, where it was made.
Our land is beautiful and powerful. It is the greatest watershed in North America. Let us imagine what we can do together, and then make it be.
