In the first half-hour of this repeat edi­tion, Host Tiokasin Ghosthorse wel­comes Veron­i­ca Shee­han. Veron­i­ca was born in Mex­i­co, lived in the U.S. for 25 years, and has been liv­ing in Cos­ta Rica for the past 11 years. Veron­i­ca and her hus­band found­ed the Sus­tain­abil­i­ty Demon­stra­tion Cen­ter. Tiokasin and Veron­i­ca will talk about sus­tain­abil­i­ty. How is it defined dif­fer­ent­ly in its var­i­ous con­texts and how do we define sus­tain­able liv­ing? More infor­ma­tion about Veron­i­ca’s orga­ni­za­tion can be found at http://​www​.sus​tain​able​costar​i​ca​.org/.

Doug, a long­time well regard­ed and accom­plished jour­nal­ist, is a co-founder of the Native Amer­i­can Jour­nal­ists Asso­ci­a­tion and served as a mem­ber of the Board of Trustees for the Smith­so­ni­an’s Nation­al Muse­um of the Amer­i­can Indi­an. He is the author of Iro­quois on Fire,” among oth­er books, and resides on Onei­da Nation Ter­ri­to­ry with his wife, com­pos­er-per­former Joanne Shenan­doah.
