In this introduction, we situate Ilarion within the context of the Bering Sea and Unangan Culture. He opens with a traditional song.
We hope you enjoy this heart-felt introduction to Ilarion's course. We've had the good fortune to know and be in relationship with Ilarion for several years, since feeling him speak at the Indigenous People's gathering at Bioneers in 2018. Over the course of the past couple of years, through the launch of Wisdom Weavers, we've had various opportunities to collaborate. I had the honor of being in conversation with him when the Wisdom Weavers film screened as part of the Global Resilience Summit. Although the talk wasn't initially scheduled as part of the conference, because it was recorded so close to the start date, afterwards I called Fleet Maull, the conference organizer, and told him that he had to listen to it. It went on to become one of the most watched talks in the whole conference. This is because Ilarion embodies his message, and his message, which comes from five decades of being a global messenger for Indigenous Elders is absolutely vital in this time–and you can feel it. This fall, as the pandemic deepened, I knew we needed to hear more from him. We couldn't get to Alaska to film, so we packed up a box of cameras and microphones and shipped them North. It is an honor to share with you some of the words and teachings of our friend, mentor, and ally Unangan Elder Kuuyux Ilarion Merculieff. May you be blessed by this transmission!
