Evon Peter

Indigenous peoples of Alaska: Our Relationship to the Earth Must Incorporate Respect, Unity and Balance

TRT: 27:12

Evon Peter is the Chief of the Neetsaii Gwich'in people in Alaska. He is an amazing young man who, though he grew up carrying water to his one room house which was remote and without energy from gas or oil (no electricity, etc), now travels the world speaking about his people and all indigenous people and the welfare of all living things. He especially makes a plea for us in the United States to stop the US and the oil companies from drilling in the Arctic Wildlife Region. This bill is in the US Congress as we write right now. Evon Peter from his website

"The relationship between the Indigenous Peoples of Alaska and the United Stated needs to be addressed. This relationship is out of balance. Indigenous Peoples are struggling for basic human rights, quality education, and jobs. Yet, the colonial governments and European-based corporations are making billions of dollars in profit from Indigenous land and resources in Alaska every year.

Our place as human beings in the world is out of balance. Through greed, fear, and over-consumption, we have hurt many relationships between one another and our relationship with the earth. Our path as humankind needs to be altered to incorporate values of respect, unity, and balance."

The things we discussed in this interview are those in the above two paragraphs-- the need for getting off our addiction to oil, the extraction of which is damaging to the environment and its inhabitants whether it be in Ecuador or Alaska. It makes people sick, hungry, destroys societies, the land itself and the animals and plants that live on it. We agreed that oil has peaked and will cheap oil will become unavailable very soon, but even sooner we can begin making those necessary transitions to sustainability in energy, our lives and our societies. He invites anyone who shares the values and sentiments expressed in the native movement website to join in creating a harmonious and sustainable world.
