"There is a longing among all people and creatures to have a sense of purpose and worth. To satisfy that common longing in all of us we must respect each other. In the olden times man and creature walked as friends who carried the beauty of the land in their hearts.

There is little time left and much effort is needed!" - Chief Dan George (Salish First Nation)
