In Nuu-chah-nulth, the wordtsawalkmeans"one." It expresses the view that all living things -humans, plants, and animals - form part of an integrated wholebrought into harmony through constant negotiation and mutual respectfor the other. Contemporary environmental and political crises,however, reflect a world out of balance, a world in which Westernapproaches for sustainable living are not working.InPrinciples of Tsawalk,hereditary chief Umeek buildsupon his previous book,Tsawalk: A Nuu-chah-nulth Worldview,to elaborate an alternative framework for responding to globalenvironmental and political crises and to indigenous peoples'poverty, dispossession, and displacement in the realms of education andpolitics. These problems, Umeek argues, stem from an historical andpersistent failure to treat all peoples and life forms with respect andaccord them constitutional recognition. By contrast, the Nuu-chah-nulthprinciples of recognition, consent, and continuity, embodied in songs,language, and ceremonies, hold the promise of achieving sustainablelifeways in this shared struggle for balance.By weaving together Nuu-chah-nulth and Western worldviews, hereditarychief Umeek creates a new philosophical foundation for building moreequitable and sustainable communities.Umeek (E. Richard Atleo),a hereditary Nuu-chah-nulthchief, is a research liaison at the University of Manitoba and anassociate adjunct professor at the University of Victoria. He is theauthor ofTsawalk: A Nuu-chah-nulth Worldview.
