The motivating force that directs some Natives to share their ancestral ways with non-Indians is this. Many people believe that traditional Native wisdom elders can help modern society learn how to live sustainably and with more peace. They see that greed, industrialism and commercialism are creating disasters on many fronts - in global politics, in our communities, in our families, and in the hearts and minds of individuals throughout the world. When Native wisdom elders share their beliefs and knowledge, they do so because they want their own people - as well as people everywhere in this world - to survive.
