It would be great--the Natives here really have no voice--no one ever listens to them unfortunately.

The Aboriginal Cultures seem to know A LOT MORE THAN WE DO.... especially about THEIR OWN ENVIRONMENT.
We are so ARROGANT, but WE DON'T KNOW EVERYTHING... We don't have "The Last Word" on everything...
THEY have things to teach US, that WE NEED to learn...

There are no real "primitives" in thinking... No "children" and "childish societies" whose brains, languages and thinking about the Universe are "less developed" than White Missionaries'...

This was a common misconception, in the service of course of Western Imperialism, it is still part of our UNCONSCIOUS thinking sometimes...

Indigenous people's cultures include spirituality and a respect for their home, Earth. We could and should allow them to teach, or at the least have awed respect for them and not abuse them as though they were the opposite of what they, in fact, truly are. That "Bulldozing Bullyish 1% of evil that rules has destroyed Earth and all that lives----we hang on by a thread---it is they who should be treated as they have and are treating others. I do not have a master plan---as someone recently asked me---other than to have governments mandate, in a state of emergency, that the planet set aside our differences, lay down our arms---unite--and have half the "brass" the 1% has had to remove the evil reins of power from them. They're the root of our demise. That would free-up the scientists, environmentalists, "We The People", to unite and make a last-ditch effort to save what's left.
