101Kidz : Wildlife : Environment Thoughts


The natives and aborigines and have studied mother Earth much more closely because their existence was intertwined with nature. For hundreds of centuries they've lived according to the concept of sustainable development.
Their concepts and their struggle to preserve nature and natural resource inspire today's environmentalists.

Here we produce two examples on the concept of co-existence. We reproduce a part of the Reply Letter of The Native American Chief, Seattle, to the proposal by the U.S. President In 1854 to buy Tribal Land.

We also produce an excerpt of the epic Chipko Movement in India where the rural women came out of their household to embrace the trees to save them from contractor's axes.
