I am a proud Native American, and incorporate my heritage into my everyday life. My great-grandfather was born on a Cherokee reservation in 1910.
Ever since I was young, I have always respected nature as not something we should take for granted, but something we should respect. Our earth is our mother. No matter your religion, one must realize that we are part of this great world in all it's beauty, yet we continue to let it waste away.
Let's look at how the Cherokee lived, and perhaps, you can see that they had the right ideas, and it worked well for them. Well, of course, until they were forced to give up their tribal ways and were told what to believe in.
