"I am not one who was born in the custody of wisdom. I am one who is fond of olden times and intense in quest of the sacred knowing of the ancients." Gustave Courbet

The whole concept of ¨wild¨ was decidedly European, one not shared by the original inhabitants of this continent. What we called ¨wilderness¨ was to the Indian a homeland, ¨abiding loveliness¨ in Salish or Piegan. The land was not something to be feared or conquered, and ¨wildlife¨ were neither wild nor alien; they were relatives.
