With our world facing new and old systemic challenges, there is a need for coherent, cooperative, and healing ways to imagine, generate, and shape new possibilities. “The Hummingbird Cricket Hour” draws on ancestral knowledge and mythological imaginations, mostly from the first peoples of the continents of this hemisphere. Hosts Luis and Trini Rodriguez explore ideas, propositions, and organizing principles for a world trying to be born. Starting from the archetypal concept that the medicine is already inside of us, Luis and Trini will have discussions with each other and invited guests about the current state of culture and society, as well as what gives life, meaning, and vitality to the beauty, truth, and systemic change needed today.

With Patreon support, “The Hummingbird Cricket Hour” creates podcasts that inspire conversation across a global community. The intention is to move ideas and imaginations, thoughts and hearts, and align understandings to the immense possibilities everywhere for a peaceful, just, clean & green, abundant, and transparent economically moral world.



ABOUT THE HOSTS
Trini is a daughter of Mexican migrants who raised her in working class Pacoima, CA. She has been a teacher, writer, editor, court interpreter,and community arts leader who grew up in Los Angeles, lived in Chicago for 17 years, then returned to L.A. with her husband Luis and two sons. She then co-founded and directed Tia Chucha’s Centro Cultural & Bookstore for 17 years in the Northeast San Fernando Valley area of the city. Twenty years ago she was spiritually adopted by Anthony and Delores Lee, Dine elders on the Navajo reservation in Arizona and has been taught in Native American and Mexican spiritual practices. She is a waterpourer at the Hummingbird Sweat Lodge and women's healing circle in the community of Sylmar.

Luis is a writer as well as a community and urban peace activist, mentor, healer, youth and arts activist. Luis has been involved in Native American and Mexican spiritual practices for close to 25 years among the Mexica, Lakota, Dine, Mayan, and Quechua people in Pine Ridge, the Navajo Nation, Mexico, Guatemala, and Peru. He is also a bestselling author of the memoir “Always Running, La Vida Loca, Gang Days in L.A.” and has over 15 other books in poetry, children’s literature, fiction, and nonfiction. He is co-founder of Tia Chucha’s Centro Cultural & Bookstore, and has been founding editor of the independent cross-cultural press, Tia Chucha Press, for close to 30 years. From 2014-2016, he served as Los Angeles’s Poet Laureate.

Together Luis and Trini have had a positive impact in the various communities they have lived in. Their contributions have been sought across the country and other parts of the world, most recently as a couple in Germany, Honduras, and Spain.
