From the perspective of an elder of the Kichwa [Taxo's spelling] people of the Andes Mountains, Taita Iachak Alberto Taxo will speak about recent planetary changes and the role that human consciousness plays in sustainability. His remarks represent the philosophy of an indigenous people who have lived sustainably in the Andes Mountains for generations. The Kichwa emphasize that human beings are nature and are not outside of nature. The guiding principle of their agricultural methods is to learn from nature how to live with nature.
