“Indigenous wisdom is based on the experiential understanding of an inherent integrity to creation, and the human is part of that natural unity. This realization is awakened in indigenous people from birth.
“They grow up with a deep sense of their connection with the natural world, all other creatures and the cosmos. All of nature is a friend and relative.
“These societies experience and view the world as part of themselves, and they a part of it. They do not regard themselves as superior, or in any way opposed to nature, but see themselves as in essential harmony with all that is.
“The relation of indigenous peoples to the earth is mystical – the basis of their culture, life and spirituality. They hold special places sacred because divine-human encounters occurred in them.
“The don’t limit the sacred to a church, synagogue, mosque or temple because they know that the divine spirit cannot be contained in any building, no matter how sublime the edifice may seem to us.
“The earth itself is their church; the vast, open sky its ceiling.”
