Around the globe,
the hunting-gathering cultures are almost gone, most of their languages
and their knowledge about the world will disperse in the next generation.
On the coast of British Columbia once inhabited by rich and complex hunting-gathering
cultures, there are no real shamans left as far as I know. I looked therefore
for the shamans inside those who live there now. I believe that in each
of us there is a part that wants to know the nature as intimately as the
shamans did and there is a part that wants to control and profit.
The control and profit fared much better over the last few thousand years
but ultimately the humanity will need both parts in perfect balance to
survive on this planet.
