For the Geo-Blog with Global Brief, an international affairs magazine, Faculty of Law Professor Douglas Sanderson (Amo Binashii) writes:

"Indigenous people the world over understand that they are not beings external to the environment – that is, there is no ‘environment;’ there is only the world we live in, something more akin to an ecosystem. Thinking about the world outside as an ecosystem means seeing that the whole thing is ‘one’ system, constructed from innumerable smaller systems: photosynthesis, watersheds, weather patterns, the migration of birds and other animals, and on and on. Indigenous people have long understood that we stand together with all of the living beings of this planet – all in it together; all dependent upon one another."
