There can be no peace as long as we wage war upon our mother, the earth. Responsible and courageous actions must be taken to realign ourselves with the great laws of nature. We must meet this crisis now, while we still have time. We offer these words as common peoples in support of peace, equity, justice, and reconciliation: As we speak, the ice continues to melt in the north.
faithkeeper of the Onondaga Nation (August 2000)
It is so sad that respect for our planet and the natural resources that are part of it would have to be government mandated before many took them seriously.
The ice has melted in the past and will melt again in the future. It is a natural cycle of the earth and mother nature no matter what we do.
