hum- need some info please

Need your help in helping me finding some info to help answer this question.
Consider the interrelatedness of everything in the cosmos as it is
expressed in many indigenous religions. How do you think the importance of
these relationships developed? What spiritual purpose do you think they
serve for indigenous peoples?
I checked about 40 sites on Google -- and found nothing that would help you. Essentially, your question is asking how native peoples viewed their world and their place in it. Many of them believed that people, plants, animals, are all connected and that people needed to respect these connections.
Also check these answers given to a classmate of yours by two other teachers this evening.
Rose, please don't use my name in your subject line. It's off-putting to other teachers and may prevent you getting an answer when I'm not available.
No problem Ms. Sue.
Thanks a lot for your help.
You're very welcome. :-)
I believe the relationships developed through the spiritual elders, who lived among each generation. They developed with the experience gained, discovering that harmony could bring them together. The relationships developed in people experiencing different parts of life and using the observations to reach a conclusion. The conclusions that they formed provided a spiritual purpose by explaining your everyday situation with a larger concept. Many religions have different beliefs but they share the same goals.
