Children of the Earth’s mandate to incorporate aboriginal perspectives, traditional teachings and culture directs much of our student’s discipline when involved with technology. Traditionally any new technology that came forth was accepted and utilized for the greater whole of our people. Technology for hunting and fishing which better provided for the tribe was adopted and utilized for the community. This principle has maintained the advancement and the unification of our First Nation peoples throughout North America. Trading and sharing technology and knowledge enabled many First Nation Communities to provide more for their peoples.
