Relativizing Money Department: one French woman (in NYC) and an entire indigenous tribe (in Canada)

This French woman learned how to live below the inflated money culture in New York. Sure, she’s been “parasitic” on the system, but not because she takes government or other hand-outs. Rather, she’s resourceful, dumpster dives for others’ “waste,” and “pays her way” via a mutual exchange of freely given personal expression of care.

How to Live a Middle-Class Life in New York City on Less than $5000 A Year

Whereas the French woman obtained her personal freedom via learning how to live mostly below money, the members of this Canadian Indian tribe kept their freedom to live in personal integrity by consciously deciding to remain mostly below the money culture — for decidedly ethical reasons.

    love the face of the older woman! Sums it up! I read about this indigenous band and learned they are part of the Tsimtshian people in British Columbia and were the first to return to their original name (used to be called “Port Simpson”). You’d like it, Ann – they have something called the “Grandmothers Group” who are involved in a greenhouse garden (with other groups). Part of their economy involved potlatches (and you remember those), with “matrilineages”. They had what are called “slaves,” but I suspect something quite different was meant by that – not the human being as property concept of this country – but war captives.
