Today is a very special episode with Sky Wildcat from The Cherokee Nation, I meet Sky last year on UNITY's conference in Orlando, as Sky joined myself and other Earth Ambassadors to do some Eco Action cleaning a local spot of litter, and we organized, and did a presentation on learning to culturally care for the environment and water conservation.    In this episode, we talk about her experience riding her bicycle on the "Remember the Removal Bike Ride" a 950 miles journey of self-discovery that goes along the same path that around 180 years was used for the forced removal of her ancestors.  We discuss her most professional accomplishments so far being an advocate for native students, and how she believes deeply in the power of education for indigenous youth. Stay tuned as Sky also shares how remembering traditions can help us pull that through these difficult times.
