Ep. 16 Cultural Appropriation Vs Appreciation & The Wisdom Teachings of “Hozho” with Navajo and Zuni Elder Belinda Eriacho
Belinda Eriacho is a wisdom keeper from the Diné (Navajo) and Zuni lineage. She was born and raised on the Dine’ reservation. In this episode, Belinda shares that from a Diné perspective, the goal in life is walking through life in “hozho”, which means living in balance and harmony. We talk about the difference between cultural appropriation versus cultural appreciation and how we can’t move towards healing unless we acknowledge that hurt has been done. Belinda shares her own story of healing intergenerational trauma and also shares the powerful prophecy of the Eagle and the Condor.
