Uniting nature, culture, and spirit

Restoring Earth new role for NativesHow do you restore the Earth?

The concept is at odds with indigenous peoples, who find themselves at an unprecedented crossroads.

Tribal people never had to think about restoring Mother Earth on a global level because it was inconceivable anyone would wantonly destroy the Earth and sky.

But images of a crying Earth appear each day. We have stinking rivers, melting ice caps, dwindling rainforests and polluting oil refineries.

Writerfella here --
Ahem! This is much in keeping with writerfella's story, "Fifth And Last Horseman", in which tribes 'discover' that the teachings of the Ghost Dance had been misinterpreted. They were not supposed to wait for the earth to be renewed and for the animals to return. Instead, they were supposed to do it themselves. And so they do, earning themselves the only exemption from a vast catastrophe that will wipe out the rest of humankind. And three decades later, some of the tribes are doing this...
