Indigenous cultural worldviews balanced feminine and masculine cycles in every aspect of life. Colonial and later assimilative policies sharply decimated these traditions. This presentation will first explore historic tribal losses and then celebrate revitalizations that have surged over the past 50 years. Rematriation is a newly expressed term that brings back wellbeing based on very old Piscataway values that honor environmental and human interdependence. In these times, both awareness and ethical practices benefit all Marylanders.
