Our Philosophy

4 SKIES is committed to the application of Indigenous philosophy as it concerns the theory and practice of sustainability.

The foundation and basis of the 4 SKIES philosophy is a model that originates in ancient Indigenous understandings of Natural Law known as the Medicine Circle.

“We do not own the earth – we borrow it from our grandchildren.”

- Anonymous Elder          

By partnering with mainstream stakeholder communities to build cutting edge infrastructures and products, 4 SKIES ensures that communities are at the heart of their industrial development. Through a clean, balanced approach the immediate needs of people will be met, while providing profit margins for long term healthy companies. 

4 SKIES embodies a philosophy of change. A change in how we think about our values towards non-commoditized goods such as community wellbeing, ancient knowledge and a sustainable habitat. 4 SKIES projects will utilize “Traditional Ecological Knowledge” and the innovational technologies needed to confront the challenges of the increasing scarcity of sustainable resources. Ultimately the business model of 4 SKIES strives to preserve life, knowledge and the environment while remaining competitive in the global market place. 


Through this collaborative approach, coupled with innovative technologies, a replicable model for global sustainability and environmental issues can be achieved. 

“There is a difference between progress and technology, progress benefits mankind. Technology does not necessarily do that.”

- Nikola Tesla
