The Bottom Line

Onandaga and Seneca Faithkeeper Oren Lyons addresses the foundational value of Western culture’s paradigm of human-nature relationship in this 2-and-a-half minute video clip entitled “The Circle of Life is the Bottom Line.” He packs so much content about the differences between Indigenous and Western paradigmatic worldview into a few short statements — addressing very specifically the key elements of the paradigm shift you want to make —  that it’s worth bookmarking this page so you can return to it periodically as you work through the other pages of this exercise.
