ANCIENT SPIRIT RISING
BY PEGI EYERS
BY PEGI EYERS
Pegi Eyers is to be commended for her deeply thoughtful, intelligent, inspiring and passionate compendium text Ancient Spirit Rising. The knowledge, spirit, and generosity of this book is of priceless value. It is an honest testimony of the past and a vision into the future. Ancient Spirit Rising can be experienced slowly one chapter at a time, and the book concludes in poem prayer (poesis - to make, to create) to begin again. Ancient Spirit Rising awakens us, and it is an essential, important, and healing experience to be taken into hand, heart and mind, again and again.

October 11, 2022 "Ancient Tales for Modern Times: The Threshold of When We Were Landscape" by Sofia Batalha, Cosmic-Chthonic Cartographies on Substack ~ Primeval underground mysteries of Iberian mythology, internal and external landscapes, symbiotic ecological narratives, eco-mythology, art, and writing. "The concept of modernity - a western a-historical, scientific, capitalist, and moral exceptionalism myth - follows the lines of authors like Vanessa Andreotti and the GTDF Collective, Bayo Akomolafe, Nora Bateson, Pegi Eyers, Pat MacCabe, Julie J. Morley, John Broomfield, Donna Haraway, Fikret Berkes, Barbara A. Bickel, Bill Devall, David Turnbull, Gordon Whyte, Marna Hauk, Jo-Ann Archibald, Jürgen W. Kremer, Nick Totton and countless others who do essential work, not from a binary/pure point of view, in criticizing modernity's limited and violent lenses."

2021 "Decolonization and Transformation of Higher Education for Sustainability: Integrating Indigenous Knowledge into Policy, Teaching, Research, and Practice" >Open Journals in Education< Journal of Comparative & International Higher Education, Volume 13, Issue 3, paper by Lin, Stoltz, Aruch and Rappeport referencing the article "Decolonization: Meaning What Exactly?" by Pegi Eyers. "We recognize that Indigenous populations and Indigenous worldviews are diverse, but there are common principles that are shared across Indigenous communities. For example, the Indigenous Seventh Generation Principle is commonly held among Indigenous groups. This principle holds that anything we do could affect seven generations into the future. This Indigenous principle reminds us we must be responsible for our actions, as future generations and their ecological living systems are affected for the long term, and multiple generations of humans share an interconnected destiny with their ecosystems. IHEs’ understanding and adoption of this Indigenous principle can shift the current colonial paradigm to one that values and sustains life, where “the priority is to care for and protect the land is for the Web of all Life, and the Seven Generations yet to come.” (Eyers, 2017)

"The process of uncolonization gently challenges the memes of Empire (western thinking) in our individual or collective consciousness, and replaces that ideology or action with pre-colonial, or indigenous thinking. For ourselves, our families and our communities, the move toward life-enhancing and creative patterns and compassionate and inclusive solutions, can be a life-long process." Therefore, recognizing that "we have all been colonized" as Eyers states, even though at different times, some of us facing ongoing genocide and others now, how can we participate in decolonizing gender?

May 27, 2016 "as Anishinaabe audience member in a Poetry Community (that truly works at doing/being better)" by waaseyaa'sin Christine Sy >ANISHINABEWIZIWIN< On the issue of white performance artists or creatives in any space laying claim to "their Elders" and Indigenous forms of expression in some cases denied to First Nations themselves. From the blog: “European Indigenous Knowledges” is a term coined by Pegi Eyers in her book Ancient Spirits Rising. I hyperlinked to this book because the phenomenon of appropriating Indigenous knowledges (and other awful things) needs to stop, and Eyers makes a significant and impressive effort toward supporting this end. I’ve included what I wrote about Eyers’ book for those who would like more insight, from one Indigenous perspective.

2013 Pegi Eyers was nominated as a Red Pashmina Woman of Impact. The people of Peterborough recognize women making a difference - women with a story to be told and a legacy to celebrate. Who is a Red Pashmina Woman of Impact? “To most, when met with a challenge, the obvious answer is to walk away.....not hers. To many, a person struggling to find support would go unnoticed.....not by her. To the majority of people, inspiration is the hardest gift to give.....she gives it without even trying. As I write this nomination I find myself thinking back to the countless projects, people, and issues that this woman has dedicated so much time to helping. She is like the brightest star in the night sky - guiding you when you have lost your way, giving you light even when the world seems so dark, ready to take the leap when all you need is a reason to wish, and most of all, she shines bright enough to inspire others to do the same. A woman of impact is not defined by the tasks she accomplishes but rather by the hope and empowerment she inspires in others.” >Red Pashmina Women of Impact<
