In this reflective essay, Chief Dan George compares his native North American culture with that of white culture and expresses his views on aspects of white culture that he feels are wrong.  He believes that the Native tradition of communal living and caring for the environment is more positive than the dominant white culture’s desire to live separately from each other and the natural world around them.
