Native American Saying

How can you buy or sell the sky, the warmth of the land? The idea is strange to us. If we do not own the freshness of the air and the sparkle of the water, how can you buy them?

Native American Saying

The first peace, which is the most important, is that which comes within the soul of people when they realize their relationship, their oneness, with the universe and all its powers, and when they realize at the center of the universe dwells the Great Spirit, and that this center is really everywhere, it is within each of us."

Black Elk

The man who sat on the ground in his tipi meditating on life and its meaning, accepting the kinship of all creatures and acknowledging unity with the universe of things was infusing into his being the true essence of civilization.

Chief Luther Standing Bear

The most common trait of all primitive peoples is a reverence for the lifegiving earth, and the native American shared this elemental ethic: the land was alive to his loving touch, and he, its son, was brother to all creatures.

Big Elk

When I die,,,, I shall be wrapt in a robe--an old robe perhaps-- and hoisted on a slender scaffold to the whistling winds, soon to be blown to the earth-- my flesh to be devoured by the wolves, and my bones rattled on the plain by the wild beasts.

Australian Aboriginal Elder

[T]he earth does not belong to man; man belongs to the earth. This we know. All things are connected like the blood which unites one family. All things are connected. Whatever befalls the earth befalls the sons of the earth. Man did not weave the web of life; he is merely a strand in it. Whatever he does to the web, he does to himself.

“We did not ask you white men to come here. ....Now, you tell us to work for a living, but the Great Spirit did not make us to work, but to live by hunting. You white men can work if you want to.

Australian Aboriginal Woman

5,000 years of indigenous wisdom --it's not scientific, but it is accurate, and it helps us to understand our relationship to ourselves, to life to the earth, to the past, and the way we work together. Science is only about 300 years old ... the scientific perspective that you and I are both steeped in.
