Bioneers 2011

About This Collection

Founder Kenny Ausubel coined the word bioneers in 1990 to describe an emerging culture of social and scientific innovators who are mimicking nature¹s operating instructions to serve human ends while enriching the web of life. We take a "solve-the-whole-problem" approach: Taking care of nature means taking care of people - and taking care of people means taking care of nature. It's part of our mission.

At the 2011 Conference the Sustainability Action Media (SAM) principals Barry Heidt and Ruth Ann Barrett took the opportunity to interview mostly, but not exclusively, the indigenous leaders attending Bioneers. 

2012 Conference

Now in its 23rd year, the Bioneers Conference (c. 3,000 people annually) has served as a perennial wellspring of cutting-edge content and dynamic, diverse voices that supply the primary source for our public education and media outreach. The main conference and Beaming Bioneers local community conferences further serve as a focal point to build community, connection and collaboration.

Indigenous Knowledge, Songs, and Stories by Tony Skrelunas at Bioneers 2011

Tony Skrelunas talks about there being no road map so we rely on our young people, our communities to guide us and stay on the right path.  Stories, songs and our indigenous knowledge important to our survival in a good way. 

At Big Mountain in Navajo Land, Tony Skrelunas was raised by his great grandparents in a very traditional way with lots of ceremony, family, elders, and tiger earth; a common way to raise children 50, 100 years ago. More information on his education and work with the Grand Canyon Trust is here.
