Native American Philosophy


The Native Americans treated the environment with great respect. 
To them every tree and stone was alive, and Mother Earth was a living entity: they respected and protected it. 
To them the spirit world was real. They believed in a Supreme Being, called Great Mystery, or Great Spirit. They were generous. Their sense of community  was very important. There was no selfishness. 
Children were not beaten: they were invited to have a good behavior. 
Women were very much considered, they had political importance in the community.
To the American Indians it was incomprehensible to possess land: they only borrowed it
from the Creator, and used it for the tribe’s benefit. 
American Indians didn’t abuse their environment, taking only what they needed.
