Exploring the Mythology of Progressive Whiteness with Pixie Lighthorse

December 3, 2021

Join Us for Season One: Episode Four! In this episode, I chat with my friend Pixie Lighthorse. Pixie is a prolific author, healer, and teacher. She writes as Lighthorse to honor the unheard voices of her Choctaw, Creek and Chickasaw ancestors. Pixie and I open up deep and wide about ancestral knowledge, honoring grief, parenting our inner child and the dangers and possibilities of Progressivism.  Please find out more about Pixie and her work at her website. Pixie recommends our listeners check out: The Smell of Rain on Dust: Grief and Praise by Martín Prechtel. Other references Pixie and I mention during this episode include:
