JOHN TRUDELL SPEAKS – ON BEING HUMAN
ON BEING HUMAN
Everybody is indigenous to the planet. We’re indigenous to different land bases and to me, our DNA physically comes from those land bases.
But we’ve got to know who we are – to know our identity – if we’re going to make it.
A tiger know it’s a tiger and it does tiger things;
a wolf knows it’s a wolf and does wolf things.
And we’re human beings but we’re not doing human being things.
We may doing human things but we’re not doing human being things because the ‘being’ – that’s the balance.
And I think that’s the most crucial thing, to know who we are. If we know who we are and we seek to find that, then we will understand the gifts that we have and our abilities.
John Trudell 1946 – 2015
