Description

In this video segment, learn about the relationship between humans and nature. Listen to a tribal Elder make the connection between the Mythic Trickster, a troublemaker whose plans consistently backfire in story after story, and modern humanity, which has disturbed natural systems with unanticipated consequences. In addition, hear an Elder’s observation that modern humanity no longer listens to nature and that, to help save ourselves, we need to accept that nature has knowledge to share. The video segment was adapted from a student video produced at Haskell Indian Nations University in Lawrence, Kansas.
