A Living World: Language, Memes, and Thought Forms : Moving Beyond 'Cultural Appropriation' Part IV


Many memes are communicated through language, and, like any tool, language shapes how we look at the world when using it.  Language facilitates some memes’ replication and makes the survival of others more difficult by shaping what relations are easy to notice and what relations require more effort.

One linguistic feature is particularly relevant here: do we experience our world primarily as objects, or primarily as processes and relations?  Clearly there is value in both perspectives, but which gets emphasis is in no small part shaped by language.

From June 1-3 in Rapid City, South Dakota, the National Indigenous Women's Resource Center will be hosting the Women are Sacred Conference! Their website states "In honor of the sacredness of Native women, our poster for our upcoming Women are Sacred conference features historic Native women who inspire us in our movement to bring healing, positive change, and sovereignty to Native Nations. At the conference, we will share this collection of stories in a wall collage, in hopes of honoring their legacies, inspiring others, and celebrating their leadership."
