What can we Learn about Nature from Indigenous Cultures?

🌀Yesterday we spent the day with the Amis people, the largest indigenous ethnic group in Taiwan.

🌿The Amis Peoples believe the natural world is sacred, consider themselves as one element of the natural world, and that it needs to be whole for future generations. Generally speaking, they see themselves as stewards of the land.

🐟It was especially intriguing as some of the middle school students went to research the Ainu culture in Hokkaido and identified some similarities between the two cultures.

Thank you to the Amis people for sharing your story with us! There is so much we can learn from indigenous knowledge of nature.
