The Deep Water Initiative is launching a new podcast series called, the Old Way, on the 27th of January, hosted by Chantal Noa Forbes.

This podcast will feature artists, academics and educators whose work highlights the present ecological significance of Indigenous traditions, customs and former ways of life.

The Old Way is a reference made by the Kalahari Bushmen of Southern Africa, to an environmentally centered way of life, which they followed for tens-of-thousands of years. This podcast is a tribute to the memory of their traditions. It further pays tribute to the legacy of the Marshall family as told by Elizabeth Marshall Thomas in her 2007 publication The Old Way: A Story of the First People, where she details her and her family’s anthropological experiences living with the Kalahari Bushmen at the end of an ecological era.

The Deep Water Initiative is inspired by the ecological importance of water as an all-pervasive element that sustains life on this planet.  The metaphysical importance of water as both a cleanser and regenerator has been upheld by many cultures throughout the world, and is celebrated within the creation myths of different religious and spiritual traditions.  The Deep Water Initiative has been particularly influenced by the significance of water as demonstrated within the Five Books of Moses.


*The Deep Water Initiative is classified as a private operating foundation that qualifies for tax exempt status under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.
