"...we see your work as a deeply important link woven between a reductionist world view (in which we separate nature and observer) and indigenous knowledges which are fundamentally more prepared to answer problems of relations, i.e. how to live in balanced relationship to our environment... you clearly have a gift that contributes a great deal to the movement for indigenous rights.
