Jeannette Armstrong – Human Relationship as Land Ethic

At the En’owkin Centre, a First Nations-directed educational center, educator Jeannette Armstrong illustrates how the community organizes itself by the “Four Societies” practice in relationship, action, tradition and vision societies. All voices are heard and valued equally. These reciprocal relationships are the foundation of Okanogan peace technologies for conflict resolution, democracy and community.

This speech was given at the 2002 Bioneers National Conference.
