Lao Tzu, the venerable Chinese Philosopher, never had to contemplate the environmental complexity, we face in the world today:
"Feed a Man a Fish and you feed him for a day, Teach him how to fish and you feed him for his lifetime" Lao Tzu.
"Teach Human Beings their Sacred Relationship to Fish and you will have Human Beings and Fish until the End of Time"
Dan Longboat IESS.
