Green Quote #6

When we Indians kill meat, we eat it all up. When we build houses, we make little holes.  When we burn grass for grasshoppers, we don’t ruin things.  We shake down acorns and pinenuts – we don’t chop down the trees.”  ~ Wintu Indian, quoted in Julian Burger, The Gaia Atlas of First Peoples
