Hello and welcome to episode 00021, and the first episode of Season 2, of the Ten Thousand Heroes Podcast.
Our guest this episode is Fighting Woman - also known as Pamela Bond. Fighting Woman is a Councilwoman on the Snohomish Tribal Council and the Fish, Wildlife, and Environment Director for the Tribe.
She is also the Founder and Co-Director of the community organization Salish Sea Environmental Education and Action.
Fighting Woman is a Cultural Educator and Traditional Teacher for the Duwamish Longhouse and Cultural Center, and a Traditional Plant Medicine and Food Specialist.
She is also an incredible weaver of cedar bark, makes documentary film, and happens to be legally blind.
Before sitting down with her, I really wanted Fighting Woman to soothe us with some epic stories. She went much further and challenged me on many levels, including the role of storytelling and the responsibilities of those who hear, those who tell, and those who travel.
Thanks again for listening to today’s show. Stay tuned after the interview for the debrief with my co-host Nathan Ramos. And remember to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or follow us on twitter 10000HeroesPod
