There is an indigenous, Native American saying:

“When the blood in your veins returns to the sea, and the earth in your bones returns to the ground, perhaps then you will remember that this land does not belong to you, it is you who belong to this land.”

Thank you for bringing attention to this issue. It was a very informative piece. :)
