Terrorism. Homeland Security. Patriotism. Since September 11, 2001, these terms have emerged as a fundamental part of our cultural lexicon, with their unsaid assumptions and attendant emotions being used to inspire and buttress a varied set of cultural, political, and military responses to the events of that day. What is terrorism? What is a secure homeland? Who is a patriot?

Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:
Chief Joseph, leader of the Nez Perce Indians, expressed it in the following words: "The earth and myself are of one mind. The measure of the land and the measure of our bodies are the same." Sentiments like these, offered in many native voices over many generations, should be recognized as the bedrock of American patriotism and the foundation for a human commitment to stand in defense of the earth.
–"Patriots for the American Land" by Richard Nelson

Historically, tyrants have sought selectively to eliminate firsthand knowledge when its sources lay outside their control. By silencing those with problematic firsthand experiences, they reduced the number of potential contradictions in their political and social designs, and so they felt safer.
–"The Naturalist" by Barry Lopez

Do we have the moral courage to step forward and openly question every law, person, and practice that denies justice toward nature?

Do we have the strength and will to continue in this American tradition of bearing witness to beauty and terror which is its own form of advocacy?

And do we have the imagination to rediscover an authentic patriotism that inspires empathy and reflection over pride and nationalism?
–"One Patriot" by Terry Tempest Williams
