Our Ancestor: Carol Judy
Carol's energy and actions modeled everything Whippoorwill is about - passing on the skills to create the beautiful future we want to see, as well as the skills to keep community pressure on greedy big business. Carol was a activist, fighting the good fight against the coal companies that polluted her community. She was a root digger, passing herbal knowledge to new generations. She was a preacher - inspiring and flaming the spirits of resistance, love, and hope. If you've been to Whippoorwill before, you've likely had a "Carol Judy moment" when she touched your soul.
Dozens more youtube videos show Carol in her own words and being. And the festival is part of her energy flowing into our shared future.
