Indigenous Knowing and Responsible Life in the World

Indigenous Knowing and Responsible Life in the World

(p.196) Indigenous Knowing and Responsible Life in the World

John Grim

Fordham University Press

This chapter seeks to associate ecospirit with indigenous knowledge in a plurality of forms. It shows that there is a family resemblance, but not a unity, among the lifeways of indigenous peoples in their different homelands. Indigenous ways of knowing attend to the flux and tensions of life that are embedded in, and resolved through, living responsibly in relation to one's local place. These are the dynamics of indigenous ecospirit.

Keywords:   indigenous culture, indigenous knowledge, lifeway, ecospirit, ecological theology
