Outdoor Education - Ways of viewing the environment: indigenous people
Indigenous people have a kinship  with the land that is identified with
the self. They don't see a separation between themselves and the land.
Rather, they have an understanding that they are simply a part of the land.
This relationship contrasts to that of the majority of western culture.
However, more and more, people are beginning to see the wisdom of the
indigenous concept of kinship with a greater focus on the mysterious ways
in which we may be linked to the web of life. It is interesting to see the
conflicts that develop between this native concept of our relationship with
the land and with that of the organised religions of the western world.
