Parts 1 and 2: (Her)oics: Women’s Lived Experiences During the Coronavirus Pandemic draws together the stories of fifty-two women across the U.S. during the Covid-19 pandemic. The collection encompasses the perspectives of women who are: front-line responders and recovering patients; going out to work, staying home to work, and losing their jobs; living with multiple generations and living in isolation; women grieving loved ones and celebrating new love; women preparing to give birth and supporting the dying. Although differing based on location, age, race, and health, they share the unique capacity of women to bring their strength, ingenuity, and love—for others and for self—to an uncertain time. The anthology is inspired by both the risks of the pandemic inherent to women and their tremendous role in the country’s response. Our guest for today’s program is a contributory author in this newly published anthology. Guests: Tia Oros Peters, Shiwi, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Seventh Generation Fund for Indigenous Peoples which supports community-generated cultural revitalization, movement building, and Re-Indigenization strategies. In addition, Tia Oros Peters has been active in community organizing, advocacy, and nonprofit development for over three decades. Tia is a recognized expert on the protection of Water as a sacred element for Indigenous Peoples’ cultural and spiritual sustainability, and on the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples as a standard setting tool for Native Peoples’ organizing, empowerment, and self-determination. Through her water advocacy at the United Nations and national and regional organizing, she coined and defined the term “Aquacide” to describe the killing of the waters around the globe.
