Clean eating means choosing fruits, vegetables, and meats that are raised, grown, and sold with minimal processing. Often they’re organic, and rarely (if ever) should they contain additives. But in some cases, the methods of today’s food producers are neither clean nor sustainable. The result is damage to our health, the environment, or both.

The completion of the encyclopedia after two years of intense work, compiled by five shamans with assistance from conservation group Acaté, is a historical and critical first step towards mitigating existential threats to healing wisdom and self-sufficiency. It is a true shamanic encyclopedia, fully written and edited by indigenous shamans, the first to our knowledge of its kind and scope.

Tribes in the region depend upon rainforest for survival but this relationship extends beyond a utilitarian reliance; there is a spiritual link to the forest, a sense of interconnectivity. For the broader conservation movement, we know that there is a strong correlation between intact ecosystems and regions of indigenous inhabitation, making strengthening of indigenous culture one of the most effective ways to protect large areas of rainforest.

It’s the 4th of July, Independence Day, and everything is coming up red, white and blue. Those are the colors of the United States flag but what do they mean? Well, the truth is that when The Stars and Stripes were adopted in 1777, the colors of the flag did not have any specific meanings. Maybe that was the material Betsy Ross had laying around.

White signifies purity and innocence, red stands for hardiness and valor and blue signifies vigilance, perseverance and justice.
