She is also engaged in learning more about indigenous lore and protocols when dealing with sensitive issues such as preserving ancient sacred traditions and meeting with tribal elders.
She’s spent her life travelling the world culminating in various projects such as organising trips to Central Australia’s Uluru and to meet with indigenous elders who are happy to teach tribal protocol in the spirit of “De Colonisation”, rather than our forefathers’ way, who only saw one solution, which was to invade and rule over the local indigenous population often resulting in genocide and introduced illnesses and disenfranchised youth, addiction and petty crime.
Victoria is a visionary and a cross-cultural community builder, seeing the bigger global vision, knowing the wisdom from our ancient custodians will help us steer humanity back into a more earth-friendly race of people evolving into homo-luminous. In order to move positively into our future Victoria believes in preserving indigenous customs and lore especially when it comes to travelling onto Country and that it’s important to see it from a first nations perspective, for example, that the Earth does not belong to us, but we in fact, belong to the earth. Ownership of water or land or the stars is a ludicrous notion as we are merely passing through and therefore must be conscious about the legacy we leave future generations.
CCN Conscious Consumer Network’s We Are The Ones We’ve Been Waiting For introduces Victoria as we explore how we can in fact build that Global Village and learn the protocols and sensitivities of working together with First Nations people in their many challenges such as we’re seeing with the Standing Rock Reservation North Dakota Access Pipeline blockade in the US and Australia’s own ongoing Stolen Generation and the removal of government services such as funding for the local schools from remote outback Originie communities and other infrastructure.
The show airs LIVE here on CCN every Monday 11 pm in London, Tuesday 10 am in Melbourne, Monday 3 pm in California and 6 pm New York.
