Exotic Tropical Island Adventures
Was it ecocide? The collapse of the mini-civilization on Easter Island (Rapa Nui) has long been considered one of the great Green morality tales. Once the people there cut down the last tree, story goes, they were doomed. Their famous statues were an arms race that completed the exhaustion of their all-too-finite resources. Moral of the story: Easter Island equals Earth Island: we must not repeat its tragedy with the planet.
It’s a satisfying tale, but apparently wrong. The reality is far more interesting.
"Walking through life, people of Ma'Ohi.
I feel the Mana everywhere.
Mana in the sky, Mana in the wind, Mana in the sea
Mana in the land, Mana in the people, Mana in nature
Feel how it enter your body."
