INDIGENOUS PEOPLES DAY

A CALL TO CONSCIOUSNESS

For thousands of years, Indigenous Nations and Peoples lived in harmony and balance with the Natural World. We evolved highly intelligent and ecologically sophisticated ways of life based on a profound appreciation of Natural Law and the well-being of all living things. There was a spiritual intelligence and respect, without which we could not exist. Through song and ceremonial practices this sacred inter-relationship with the Natural World was celebrated and honored.

Suddenly, that all changed. The result was genocide and the extinction of hundreds of Indigenous Nations – tens of millions perished.

Today, we walk in the footsteps of our ancestors beyond the clichés and misconceptions of American Indians and American history. Through ancient wisdom, traditional knowledge and experience, the voice of today’s Indigenous Peoples is A CALL TO CONSCIOUSNESS – a message key to the future of America, and the restoration of life in balance.

Today, the climate crisis is harming the Arctic at twice the rate of other regions of the globe.

President Obama’s decision to let Shell drill for oil in the Chukchi Sea is fossil foolish and undermines his policies and promise to reduce the global warming pollution that causes climate change.”  – Robby Romero
