Onondaga Nation Elder on the Sacredness of Mother Earth

Onondaga Nation Elder on the Sacredness of Mother Earth from Bill Moyers.com on Vimeo.

It is a source of wonderment when a reporter asks the questions he does with a sense of wonderment and awe. As if this is the first he has heard of this way of relating to Mother Earth.

It is no wonder that most of the world's human population are running around with a "Sky is Falling" fear every day! The reporters are so important in forming the civil views of society and if they are getting it wrong (which they certainly are) then we all are getting it wrong, unless we teach ourselves a higher WAY!

Onondaga Nation Clan Mother Audrey Shenandoah, who passed away two years ago, spoke with Bill in 1991 about her personal kinship with nature and the Onondaga Nation's concerns for our Earth in a society that "feels dominant over the elements of the creation."
