Presented by Kai Delgado Pfeifer
Time & Location
May 07, 2020, 6:30 PM – 8:30 PM EDT
About This Event
As our communities and lands experience intensifying capitalist violence, we are also reclaiming our collective right and responsibility to belong to the earth. We are listening to her instructions to journey inward, find strength in our history, and cultivate solidarity rooted in land. Part of our liberation is re-learning the earth medicine that humbly offers themselves to us as companions in the hard work of freedom. And learning our responsibility in return to land and to frontlines communities. Join us as we integrate these lessons through the medicine of food plants, storytelling, and prayer. Come ready to collectively prepare vegan Filipino nourishment and reclaim your stories of earth, spirit, and solidarity. Walk away skillful in feeding yourself, and hopefully those in your community, with food blessed by spirit and sovereignty. Monetary donations will be forwarded to Liyang Network to provide COVID-19 relief to peasant farmers, agricultural plantation workers, and Lumad land defenders in Mindanao, PH.
About Kai Delgado Pfeifer
Peace! My name is Kai Delgado Pfeifer. I am an educator, farmer, and earth-medicine worker rooted on Lenape territory in New Jersey. My ancestors journey from Iloilo-Philippines, Fukkien Province-China, Ireland, Lithuania, and Germany. I am a student to the land, ancestors, living elders, and spirit. I believe that this spiritual journey is tightly woven with the material struggle for liberation from capitalism, patriarchy, and white supremacy. Embodying the wisdom of the land, spirit, and ancestors (living and dead) is practice of/for the new world we are participants in creating. It is my humble intention to share/weave these lessons as a liberatory educator. I am a 2nd year student at Farm School NYC and founder of Lola’s Apo. In the coming years I will be splitting my time between Turtle Island and Mindanao, Philippines.
