We also learn in-and-from a range of landscapes that belong to other indigenous peoples.

As we seek deep reciprocal relationships with nature, we respect and honor the place-based and cultural wisdom of indigenous ancestors and contemporaries.  Words of acknowledgement and intention are just a first step. We must match them with acts of respect and repair.
