Ecology, as understood in most Pacific indigenous communities, is both the relationship among the people in a community and the relationship with their natural environment. The wellbeing and wholeness of these myriad relationships are dependent on the ethics and value systems that govern them. Pertinent to the issue is the question: what are the religious, traditional and cultural resources at our disposal that will help us with reweaving the ecological mat?
For this lecture in reweaving our ecological mat, we focus on the issue of violence and how its mangled the strands our ecological mat.
The Lecture will be followed by a moderated question and answer session, and refreshments.
