Tiokasin spends the full hour with Mar­tin Prech­tel talk­ing about top­ics relat­ed to his impor­tant and time­less book, The Smell of Rain on Dust: Grief and Praise” (North Atlantic Books, 2015). Mar­tin Prech­tel is a lead­ing thinker, writer and teacher in the search for the Indige­nous soul in all peo­ple. He is a ded­i­cat­ed stu­dent of elo­quence, his­to­ry, lan­guage and an ongo­ing fresh approach. In his native New Mex­i­co, Mar­tin teach­es at his inter­na­tion­al school Bolad’s Kitchen, a hands-on his­tor­i­cal and spir­i­tu­al immer­sion into lan­guage, music, rit­u­al, farm­ing, cook­ing, smithing, nat­ur­al col­ors, archi­tec­ture, ani­mal rais­ing, cloth­ing, tools, grief and humor to help peo­ple from many lands, cul­tures and back­grounds to remem­ber and retain the majesty of their diverse ori­gins while cul­ti­vat­ing the flow­er­ing of inte­gral cul­ture in the present to grow a time of hope beyond our own. Mar­tins books include: Secrets of the Talk­ing Jaguar”; Long Life, Hon­ey in the Heart: The Dis­obe­di­ence of the Daugh­ter of the Sun”; Steal­ing Bene­fa­cios Ros­es”; The Unlike­ly Peace of Cuchu­maquic” and The Smell of Rain on Dust: Grief and Praise.” His lat­est book, Res­cu­ing the Light: Quotes from the Oral Teach­ings of Mar­tin Prech­tel” was pub­lished on June 8, 2021.
