A talk on the deep subject of "Reciprocity Given by Indigious Robin Wall Kimerer:

She is  a mother, scientist, decorated professor, and enrolled member of the Citizen Potawatomi Nation. She is the author of Braiding Sweetgrass: Indigenous Wisdom, Scientific Knowledge and the Teachings of Plants,
One of the topics she brings up relates and I think could be quite an important subject for people to reflect upon in the Learn Na'vi Community, and even a subject Paul Frommer And James Cameron may find of importance.
In her talk She gives examples and reflects upon the deep systemic differences between the internal Expression of the English Language (And many people my want to question way this is so ?)   in comparison to how many indigenous languages in her case she references  "Anishinaabemowin" ,The Ojibwe Language, and how it differs from English in how it represent's and recognize's non human living things like plants and rivers and turtles .. 
and her own deep inner struggle when when she forced into these expression strutures when she has to write scientific papers.
