Teach Your Children

The the Earth is our mother.

Whatever befalls the Earth

Befalls the sons and daughters of the Earth.

If men spit upon the ground,

They spit upon themselves.

This we know.

The Earth does not belong to us:

We belong to the Earth.

This we know.

All things are connected

Like the blood which unites one family.

All things are connected.

Whatever befalls the Earth

Befalls the sons and daughters of the Earth.

We did not weave the web of life:

We are merely a strand in it.

Whatever we do to the web,

We do to ourselves.
