Otherwise, it gave more information on the resource management and methods in order to develop the use of appropriate technologies for living such as hunting and agriculture, also, it can help people to get experiences and to increase the knowledge about their indigenous resources. The lecturer, Nancy Turner, argued that spreading and sharing the indigenous ecological knowledge is important, and we should keep it because it allows communities to realize their own expertise and apply their own knowledge and practices to help protecting and maintaining the way of lives and living sustainably.

He is inspiration for all of us to see the natural world as a community to which we belong. Muir’s ideas are not relevant today as he wants people to see and admire the romantic value of nature. Leopold wants people to be responsible for the affect they have in the environment and Muir wants people to see and admire the romantic value of nature. Pinchot’s idea put people in the center, and on the other hand Muir put individuals in focus This can be better explained. I believe that nature and its natural resources are here for us to use, but the management of these resources should very careful and make sure that will have these resources forever.
Not only did Alice notice this extraordinary skill from her mother- being able to cultivate such a beautiful, bountiful, diverse garden in what little land she was on, caught the attention of many people that spanned beyond the own city she lived in. Recognizing her mother’s aptitude, Alice stated “…Whatever rocky soil she landed on, she turned into a garden.” (... ... middle of paper ... ... life. This woman I envision is someone who makes the most out of any situation- be it tough living situations, money troubles, or even a death of a loved one. Re-phrasing the quote "…Whatever rocky soil she landed on, she turned into a garden.” (Walker 150). To reveal what I see within it, I would render it as "Whatever life throws at her, she turns to the good within it."
The two daughters see the quilt either as something you can put on display, or something you can put to everyday use. Meaning, to put family first and talk to them everyday and be proud of where they came from or to think of family as people who are only there when wanted to show them off or a fun story to tell.

Mama’s concern for her traditions and heritage show that she honors them in a very special way despite of Dee’s direct view of her mother appreciation for
The Tao relocates humans in an ecological context where the company of humans is but part of a natural world order: "Love the world as your own self; then you can truly care for all things." How appropriate this injunction is today, when many people worry that they must care for the physical environment that must, in turn, care for them. At the same time, the Tao questions the value of abstract thinking in favor of selfless action: "Give up sainthood, renounce wisdom. / It is more important / To realize one's true nature." And, the Tao recognizes the limitations of coercive power and encourages "leading, not dominating," certainly a desirable profile for leaders of the future, where consensus-building might take place of patriarchal authority.
The Land Ethic Theory Aldo Leopold ‘s land ethic is widely recognized as a theory that promotes the ethics of living things that are not human. As humans, we often forget that we are not the only living things on this early, so the land ethic encourages us to be mindful of our environments. Leopold’s Land Ethic Theory explains that humans must broaden the borders of ethics to include aspects of our environment such as the land, animals, and plants.

Humans depend on multiple aspects of the environment in order to survive, so it would be logical to care for and respect such a necessary part of human life.
