Recently I boarded a train and made my way to New York City for a meeting with Rebecca Adamson, President and Founder of First Peoples Worldwide.
I had asked to meet Rebecca so that I could learn more about how indigenous people around the world view their relationship with animals. The train ride was slow, but takes you through landscapes filled with natural beauty.
Arriving in New York City shakes you out of any reverie for nature fairly quickly.

I made my way through the maze of Penn Station and began my walk uptown. It was still early morning, unusually cold for this time of year, grey, overcast and there was room to look around the sidewalk.
