Synopsis: Tsawalk, or “one,” expresses the Nuu-chah-nulth view that all living things - human, plant, and animal - form part of an integrated whole brought into harmony through constant negotiation and mutual respect. In this book, Umeek argues that contemporary environmental and political crises and the ongoing plight of indigenous peoples reflect a world out of balance, a world in which Western approaches to sustainable living are not working. Nuu-chah-nulth principles of recognition, consent, and continuity, by contrast, hold the promise of bringing greater harmony, where all life forms are treated with respect and accorded formal constitutional recognition.
Book Description: Weaves together Nuu-chah-nulth and Western worldviews to create a new philosophical foundation for building more equitable and sustainable communities.
