Indigenous Views

By Carolynne Crawley

Indigenous peoples have been and continue to be in a deep and reciprocal relationship with these lands, waters, and beings since time immemorial. 

We see all of creation as part of our family to be treated with love and respect.  We are not separate from ‘Nature’ but are a part of her as we are all interconnected.  Therefore we have an individual and collective responsibility to be in a healthy relationship with Mother Earth.  

Indigenous peoples have been tracking the changes upon the land and waters to guide our movements when harvesting, hunting, or fishing since time immemorial, always ensuring to take only what is needed from the land and to consider other beings. 

We make our decisions thinking seven generations ahead, thinking not just about humans, but including all beings.  It has always been known that if people fell out of this relationship then a great imbalance will occur.  We can see that is evident today.
