On Indigenous People’s Day, Sunday, a group of students from Tufts with their Prof. Sharon Kivenko ( at right) next to my husband, David, in his vest, plus a bunch of friends and family marched in the Honk! parade. As a symbol of the melting and dying Earth the students chose a melting ice cream cone, which you can see sort of. Oddly, the beach ball that was meant to represent the earth collapsed by the end of the parade, due to contact with wires and tree branches. I hope that’s not a symbolic prediction for our future. Most of the Honk! groups yesterday were pro climate action including Extinction Rebellion genocide at the foundation of our country. We all need to reverse the forces that lead to ecocide. Perhaps if we’d respected the Indigenous civilizations who were in the Americas at the time of European conquest we’d be doing better, since indigenous ideas about living in harmony with Nature were much better than European ones.
