He tried to bring awareness about our planet and how it was being destroyed and even tried to get people to rally against those destroying it. His name was Chief Dan George. I think we forgot to listen but I wonder if the new generation of young adults would be interested, are you? I'm very worried about the future of our planet, how about you?

Of course. Chief Dan George was a late in life actor who received an Oscar nomination for his performance in Little Big Man.

Have you ever heard him speak? He really was a wise Chief as were so many Native American Chiefs.

Yeah, that's probably how a lot of people know him @JohnRoberts at least he was able to help his tribe and his videos about his beliefs are also on YouTube which is when I found out about him, I guess I didn't remember him in Little Big Man.

Native Indians have a history of living off the land and respecting it- they are the first to see how things are getting worse, I'm afraid.

That is so true and it's a shame that we still aren't listening yet so many of us are complaining about global warming ...... well, if WE hadn't cut down all those forests we probably wouldn't be faced with all this.

The damage is done @MarymargII just look at how much a good rain eroded an area simply because we've stripped all the trees away.

So true Anna, young people are far too busy partying instead of looking for a way to support themselves, of course I speak mostly about Americans as I really don't know that much about Europeans or Asians

@rebelann The world have seen many wise men coming from different countries and cultures, but their words have never been listened enough.

Parents aren't teaching their children to try to support themselves anymore @LadyDuck all the kids I know are focused on simply having fun all the time so when they reach the age of 18 and are out of school they have no clue how to take care of themselves.

there's quite a few 'f the 'elders' who did their best to share their wisdom with a calm 'n knowin' tongue. sadly, such seemed to be 'pon deaf ears. i love listenin' to 'em via youtube, givin' that much more power to their wise words passed down to 'em from their ancestors.

somehow I think those wise words mean more as we get older although I do recall how a lot of people back in the late 60s were really into the Native American cause. I wonder what happened aside from greed

@rebelann i've always taken to heart the sayin' 'f the wise ones myself. aint fer certain why such a movement lost 'ts steam. no doubt greed 'd be one thingy, but i'm purty sure there's more to't than that.

Yeah, and I'm guessin it's that the media dropped the ball, they're never interested in the welfare of our world, to them its always about the all mighty $ so that anything of real importance goes unnoticed by the sheep that follow their every word @crazyhorseladycx

No I have not heard of him, but in general people do not listen, even when it is in their best interest.

I can't recall if I saw him in movies but when I started looking through YouTube for various Native American chants I came across many of his videos.

As wikipedia states, he was the band leader of the "Tsleil-Waututh Nation from 1951 to 1963" I learned more about our native Americans thanks to this man.
