Comment by:  PT (David Alexander) (Sep-17-2008)   Web site
This is a terrific, natural interview. One point I noticed, at approximately minute 23:00 they talk about how people in older, successful cultures had a strong habit of sharing their food or baskets or whatever they had. That reminded me of learning of the potlatch tradition of the northwest Native Americans. The concept, as I understood it when visiting their museum (in Trees of Mystery park) was that the person who could GIVE AWAY the most, was considered the leader and the richest. They would compete to give away the most. This practice was prohibited by the American government! Perhaps it was anti-capitalist; but it does sound pro-human. There is much to learn in re-aligning our society to be sustainable.

Member: peakmoment (Janaia Donaldson) Yuba Gals Independent Media production partners Robyn Mallgren and Janaia Donaldson have been producing local video programs for community access television since 2002.

The Yuba Gals live in rural Nevada City and their business is named for the nearby South Yuba River, a part of the Wild and Scenic river system in California. They live on 160 acres of forest land, in a 1500 square-foot off-grid home using about 10% of the electricity of the average American home (including home office). Their home is heated by a wood stove using deadfall wood from their property. Propane heats the cookstove, on-demand water heater and backup generator (needed only during gray-day periods in winter). Not yet energy independent, but moving in that direction!
