For Indigenous cultures around the globe, the sense of belonging to something vast and beyond comprehension is deeply woven into their heritage. Dr. Yuria Celidwen, of Indigenous descent from Chiapas, Mexico, is a cultural psychologist and is an expert in Indigenous traditions.

She joins host Jonathan Bastian to discuss how Indigenous practices and experiencing awe is embodied in and enhances prosocial behavior in many cultures.
