Today, as Western scientists try to better understand Indigenous peoples’ relationships with animals—as well as animals’ own capacity for thoughts and feelings—such beliefs are gaining wider recognition, giving archaeologists a better understanding of ancient northern cultures.

“If you start looking at the relationship between humans and animals from the perspective that Indigenous people themselves may have had, it reveals a rich new universe,” says Matthew Betts, an archaeologist with the Canadian Museum of History who studies Paleo-Eskimo cultures in the Canadian Arctic.

“What a beautiful way to view the world.”

The idea that Indigenous people have spiritual relationships with animals is so well established in popular culture it’s cliché. Yet constricted by Western science and culture, few archaeologists have examined the record of human history with the perspective that animals feel emotions and can express those emotions to humans.

A “Stop Medical Genocide” press conference was held on the China problem
China conducts between 60,000 to 100,000 organ transplants per year, and the extractions are overwhelmingly made from Falun Gong followers
The Japanese government and medical practitioners must properly face this problem

Every year China performs around 100,000 organ transplants, and a majority of those organs are extracted from living innocent victims. The truth behind this atrocity was finally unveiled.

On the 24th of January, David Matas (International human rights lawyer from Canada), David Kilgour (Member of Parliament, Canada) and Jacob Lavee (Israeli heart transplantation doctor) opened a press conference at the Foreign Correspondents’ Club of Japan on Stop Medical Genocide to present 10 years’ worth of research into China’s organ harvesting problem.

At the press conference, they played a 20-minute video entitled “Medical Genocide: the hidden genocide in China’s organ transplant industry” while adding verbal commentary.

I will be a hummingbird – Wangari Maathai

When confronted with adversity, when the odds are stacked up against you, you can either stand aside – helpless, frozen with fear – or do the best you can. Nobel Laureate Wangari Maathai stood up to seemingly insurmountable challenges all her life, and won. Like the hummingbird in this story; to give up was never an option for her. Her spirit lives on in the millions of trees she helped plant.

The Kindness School

Most schools have academics as a core and focus on developing character as a secondary motive. However, the Kindness School has a different approach to student learning.

The Puget Sound Community School in Seattle, Washington is a 5-day-a-week school rooted in helping kids from grades 6-10 learn about character and kindness. There are no required academic classes, but classes where students take subjects that interest them.

In addition to academic classes, the students are taking classes that help develop their character within their school and community as a whole. Students get to go into their community to help spread love and kindness to learn how to put their kindness into action.
