“You must teach your children that the ground beneath their feet is the ashes of our grandfathers. So that they will respect the land, tell your children that Earth is rich with the lives of our kin. Teach your children what we have taught our children, that Earth is our mother. Whatever befalls Earth, befalls the children of Earth. If humans spit upon the ground, they spit upon themselves.
This we know. Earth does not belong to us; we belong to Earth. This we know. All things are connected like the blood which unites one family. All things are connected.”
