Adelaide's recipe for life: wisdom of the Kaurna

1 Jan 2000
Description

Gerald McBride writes that over the past century our society has experienced ecological decline and the loss of a sense of community under the influence of increasing individualism and short-term, market-based economic values. In contrast, the Kaurna people maintained rich social lives and ecological sustainability over tens of thousands of years, due to their commitment to the principle of reciprocity with others, the environment and the Dreaming. We have much to learn from the Kaurna wisdom as we search for an ecologically, socially and culturally sustainable path for our future.
