The Native Outlook on a Sustainable Way of Life

Hermann Trappman

Hermann Trappman, historian and artist, discusses how the Native Americans viewed the world differently than the European conquistadors who came to the New World. They strove to be at one with their landscape; sustainability was a priority. He explains the importance of understanding the native worldview as an idea for the future, not just the pre-European-contact past.
