Bioneers 2017 will be an electrifying kaleidoscope of breakthrough models, strategies and solutions inspired by nature: climate action – ending extreme inequality and creating democracy – racial and gender equity and healing – women’s leadership – restoring land, water, air, biodiversity – and exploring how nature’s profound intelligence can provide guidance.

The Indigenous Forum is a powerful and unique gathering of Native Peoples building bridges with non-Native allies and each other (100 Indian nations in 2016). Bioneers Youth make up 20% of the 3,000 participants!

Bioneers 2017 will feature the first full performance of The Story of Everything by Hawaii’s Poet Laureate, Kealoha Wong, to reach the continental United States. In this production, Kealoha presents a creation story in epic poem form that traces human origins from the Big Bang to the present day using a dazzling mix of science, poetry, storytelling, movement, music, visual art, and chanting. A multi-media feast for the soul, this performance explores life’s biggest questions—“Where do we come from?” “Where are we going?”—drawing from sources as diverse and yet interconnected as astrophysics, disco, biology, Michael Jackson, and the Kumulipo. The performance will take place on Sunday, October 22, 2017 at the Marin Center Showcase Theater in San Rafael, CA.
