Balance

I want to share this great, short video.  It summarizes what happened in just 20 years after wolves were reintroduced to the Yellowstone ecosystem.  This story reinforces the Lakota view of the interconnectedness of all living creatures.  Balance is nature’s optimal state.  This also makes me think of human organizations and how easily they can fall out of balance if the needs of certain groups of individuals within the organization are neglected or excluded.  It takes every member of the tribe to achieve optimal balance in a community (be it a reservation, a company, a state, a nation or a planet).

  1. That is such a great video about the wolves- short and thought provoking. It’s incredible that the wolf project had that kind of an impact on Yellowstone National Park !
