TRT: 28:37
Date: 2005-11-06

Jeremy Narby is a Swiss-based PhD anthropologist and indigenous land rights activist who grew up in Canada and Switzerland, studied history at the University of Canterbury and received his doctorate in anthropology from Stanford University. He is the author of The Cosmic Serpent: DNA and the Origins of Knowledge and most recently, Intelligence in Nature: An Inquiry Into Knowledge. Narby has worked for two decades with indigenous Amazonian people in efforts to guarantee their territories and cultures.

In this interview, conducted at the Bioneers Conference in San Rafael, Ca., Narby describes how he went to the Amazon as a Marxist activist graduate student working with with issues of land rights for indigenous people of that region and how his eyes were opened by the shamans who used the very strong ayuasca and tobacco plants of that area as they have been doing since anyone can remember. He discovered that they knew about DNA and many many other things that modern western science is only recently coming to understand. His latest book expands on the fact that western science and shamanic knowledge both say that everything -- even slime mold-- has intelligence. In his very entertaining and unique style Narby brings us information that is groundbreaking and crucial for humans to understand!!
