A poem for the Earth by an Indigenous Nahuatl Women Esmeralda Gonzales


To honor the Indigenous people of Mexico, we have Esmeralda Gonzalez, who is a teacher of the indigenous language Nahuatl, and also an earth guardian, leading group of students in reforestation projects of native trees. Esmeralda shares the ancient wisdom of the Nahualt passed down generations after generation. This community wisdom speaks of the importance of taking care of our planet for generations to come. 
Esmeralda shares a heartbreaking poem that reminds us why we must care for our planet earth before it is too late.  Translated to English as "The Earth is Sad" we hear an emotional rendition of those beautiful verses.
