Let this be our garden's legacy.
You must teach your children that the ground beneath their feet
is the ashes of your grandfathers. So that they will respect the
land, tell your children that the earth is rich with the lives of
our kin. Teach your children what we have taught our children,
that the earth is our mother. Whatever befalls the earth befalls
the sons of the earth. If men spit upon the ground,
they spit upon themselves.
