"This book is a path to the future, a path of peace , with signposts from Indigenous world views that recognise that we are interconnected and are all members of one Earth family ."

The diversity and Inclusion movement in corporations and higher education has mostly fallen short of its most authentic goals. This is because it relies upon the dominant worldview that created and creates the problems it attempts to address. Rediscovering and applying our original Indigenous worldview offers a remedy that can bring forth a deeper and broader respect for diversity, and a different way to understand and honor it. This book offers a transformative learning opportunity for preserving diverse environments at every level, one that may be a matter of human survival.
