At last night’s Monthly Gathering, guest speaker Shannon Biggs told those gathered in the cozy dining room of Peña Pachamama about one of the few bright spots during her trip to Rio+20: 11-year-old Ta’Kaiya Blaney.

In this video, filmed at an indigenous people’s plenary during the UN conference, Ta’Kaiya invites everyone to “join me in Earth Revolution.”

You may have seen Ta’Kaiya’s music video “Shallow Waters” (below), her heartfelt song reflecting on the environmental destruction that’s all too obvious to today’s children.

With her passionate message and beautiful voice, Ta’Kaiya is an inspiring example of the leadership the next generation can bring.
