The Wisdom of the Native Americans

               

The inhabitants of this land were not one people.  Their customs differed.  Their languages differed.  Some tilled the earth; others hunted and picked the abundance of the land around them.  They lived in different kinds of housing and governed themselves according to different rules.

 

          But they shared in a common belief that the earth is a spiritual presence that must be honored, not mastered.  Unfortunately, western Europeans who come to these shores had a contrary belief.  To them, the entire American continent was a beautiful but savage land that is was not only their right but their duty to tame and use as they saw fit.

 

          As we enter the twenty-first century, Western civilization is confronting the inevitable results of this European-American philosophy of dominance.  We have gotten out of balance with our earth, and the very future of our planet depends on our capacity to restore the balance.
