Working together, or in Irish, meitheal, is something rarely seen in the US. We compete rather than cooperate. We consume rather than create. We exclude rather than include others.
Some of us, though, realize this is not something that can long continue. Indeed, things are rapidly falling apart.
For Meitheal's editor, Jay Taber, finding inspiration and guidance among the peoples indigenous to this continent, as well as in the sacred traditions of indigenous diaspora, is both a challenge and obligation. For Meitheal's readers, we hope what you find here will help you in making a connection to something authentic and engaging.
(Besides serving as a contributing editor of Fourth World Journal, Jay writes a regular column for Intercontinental Cry. You can listen to him speak about the Fourth World and the Fourth Estate here.)e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
