An Update from Shilo George: Navigating the Pandemic and Thanks-taking from an Indigenous Women’s Perspective

Let us re-introduce you to Shilo George— our guest from episode 57 (which is a worthwhile listen too!!) where she shared honestly about mental health and food concerns as a “super-fat, indigenous, queer woman”.  Shilo is a Southern Cheyenne-Arapaho and Scottish international speaker, trainer, and owner of Łush Kumtux Tumtum Consulting. Today Julie Church, Opal Co-Founder and Nutrition Director reconnected with Shilo for a little update and some great nuggets of wisdom arose.  Asking for help. Eating in the pandemic. Reframing the things that challenge us. And honoring Native American culture and history, especially during this Thanksgiving/Thanks-taking week.
