adjective adjective: savage
1. (of an animal or force of nature) fierce, violent, and uncontrolled. "packs of savage dogs roamed the streets"
Yes, the indigenous people of this land are and were a force of nature.... And that connection with the source of life, with the nature, with earth...is what is sorely missing in our white-supremacist, capitalist society. And it is missing in my life, which is why I'm weeping when I'm watching the video about the boarding schools (and others).
