One of my favorite aspects of native culture is the idea that we must think of people 7 generations from now when we make decisions. It’s an incredible idea that really resonates with me, partially because I work within the wine industry which is home to a number of people who are all trying to creating something new and memorable for themselves, but also for their families.
If you want more information about the wine industry-there are a few great resources online. Here’s a great blog about wine and the products made from it and this is another cool image blog about wine.
The whole concept though makes me think about how our government isn’t even willing to think 1-2 generations down the line, instead they continue spending us into worse and worse debt-which is something the native culture’s on this continent would consider a terrible, terrible idea indeed.
