  • Reflection Question
    Community Support Native Communities
    Indigenous speaker and activist Winona LaDuke says that, "most indigenous ceremonies, if you look to their essence, are about the restoration of balance — they are a reaffirmation of our relationship to creation. That is our intent: to restore, and then to retain balance and honor our part in creation." Why is balance important to sustainability?

    Because, in life have to have the right amount of something, not have 1 thing more or 1 things less, because life isn't designed to be oversbused of underobused, its designed to just be in the middle.
