Review for Buffalo Field Campaign, West Yellowstone, MT, USA
Having some Indigenous Ways within me and being part of All Creatures, part of Earth.
Seeing clearly that modern economics cannot be arbiters of survival and have shown little skill at sustaining anything, ethical merit versus $$$ when wealth is on paper with so many zeros and bills must be paid.
The Great Plains produced more biomass before contact than modern agriculture's denuded diversity and row-cropping.
Extinction events are tied to loss of diversity and low planetary oxygen, that's in the geologic record and we are now reducing oxygen rapidly and losing over 200-species per day knowing that for a new species the event is rare, not yearly, not decadal, hardly by century at times.
The ungulate bond to an apex-predator balance held over many thousands of years in plenty.
Perhaps the reins now need to pass back to those that honored what worked and there was no hunger unless all were hungry, there was bounty shared and respect given to good thinkers, people with insight to past-present-future being tied and always ongoing together.
The Western Culture can learn, we assume, yet not until it puts down the crown of arrogance of being "in charge", to not dominate and conquer, to communicate and share to go back to a worthy ethic of behavior for future people to honor, not the ransacked, stripped down and left behind planet we see today.
The Buffalo is the basis of a Culture, it's not just an animal to kill for food, that's an insight into how to honor any animal, to live with them in abundance again.
