A Conversation with Scott Simon : Indigenous Wisdom and Ecological Ethics

As COVID-19 ravages human societies around the planet, people are becoming increasingly aware that this and other zoonotic illnesses result from a loss of balance between humans and other animals. COVID-19, in some epidemiological hypotheses, may have evolved in certain bat populations but mutated as the virus transmitted via pangolin in wildlife markets to humans.

Prof. Scott Simon thinks it is reasonable to argue that this happened because humans pushed too far into the habitat of bats; and, especially with an over-heated economy, increased market demand for pangolins and other wildlife “products.” Prof. Simon also thinks it is not unreasonable to argue that this would not have happened if more people lived according to an ethic promoted since ancient days among Indigenous societies around the world: never take more than you need. Zoonotic diseases would also be less prevalent in a society that did not view animals and plants as simply “products” or “resources” to be harvested for food, medicine, or timber; but rather as living selves with whom humans have relations and ethical obligations that keep them at a respectful distance. “In our current ecological crisis, of which COVID-19 is only the most recent obvious manifestation, it is more urgent than ever to learn from Indigenous wisdom.”

In this , Prof. Simon will first look at the legal framework in which Indigenous ecological rights are recognized in international law, as well as state law in Canada and Taiwan. As these laws are implemented, ecosemiotics provides a way to think beyond the human to a meshwork of interconnected lives with mutual ethical obligations to one another. By ecosemiotics, Prof. Simon mean traditional wisdom about communication between humans and non-humans which is incarnated in Indigenous wisdom such as that of Anishinaabe/Algonquin Ginawaydaganuk or Seediq/Truku Gaya.

【Speaker】Scott Simon first came to Taiwan in 1996 to conduct Ph.D. research on the leather tanning industry in Tainan. Although he planned to stay one year, he stayed for five, working at Wen Zao University (Kaohsiung), Academia Sinica, and NDHU. He has done research with Truku and Seediq peoples of Taiwan since 2004. In his first project (2004-2008), he focused on issues of development and state-indigenous relations. This culminated in the book Sadyaq Balae: L’autochtonie formosane dans tous ses états (Québec: Presses de l’université Laval, 2012). In 2012-13, he did research on Truku ethno-ornithology, as part of a larger interest in ecological
