A crash course in changing the world.

We are Indigenous because we are conscious of Responsibility, Imagine8

When I am 100, or, if our peoples and communities have become resilient and health issues no longer as limiting as they are today, when I am 100 years older than now, I would like to imagine that the world has become a cohesive, resilient and interdependent grouping of communities, nations, regions and peoples. I would like to imagine that Mother Earth is the base planet for off-terrestrial expeditions, and that we, as humans, have evolved enough so that possible contact (nods to Carl Sagan http://www.carlsagan.com/ ) with other beings, other lives and cultures does not cause humankind to revert to exclusionary, warlike and unsustainable behaviors.

Please excuse my unaccustomed speech mode; hopefully, in 100 years, I will have learned to be comfortable speaking in public (and not just singing).

In 100 years, then, I would be proud to say that:

"We, as humans, all hold within us the power to become 'indigenous,' because we can each become conscious of, and willing to assume, the responsibilities of the mission which we share here on our planet, to protect Mother Earth, and the future of humanity and all the biodiversity on our planet.

Our mission, our concrete contributions to global, cultural, and biological diversity, to security of livelihood, infrastructure, and human rights, to the future of humanity, have brought us this far.

We are endowed with the potential for great discoveries, innovations which can bring sustainability and peace.

We are bestowed, through our ancestors who walked this planet before us, and through our children who will walk after us, across the green lands of Mother Earth, and across the terrains of the planets in the cosmos, with the responsibility to maintain balance, and peace, within the natural world.

Balance-- among peoples, among biodiverse creatures and plants, among ecosystems and technosystems.

Peace-- between humankind, and all the vast diversity of the cosmos.

When any part is damaged or destroyed, all balance is thrown into chaos. We cannot long nurture, we cannot long endure, within chaos. Here, and on all possible worlds, accept the responsibility to bring peace and balance to your interactions with, in, of, and from this Mother Earth that we share."

Native American call for global prayers in response to the Gulf of Mexico oil spill
An open letter from Chief Arvol Looking Horse, Spiritual Leader of the Lakota, Dakota and Nakota People

A Great Urgency

To All World Religious and Spiritual Leaders

My Relatives,

Time has come to speak to the hearts of our Nations and their Leaders. I ask you this from the bottom of my heart, to come together from the Spirit of your Nations in prayer.

We, from the heart of Turtle Island, have a great message for the World. As I am sending this message to you, many Animal Nations are being threatened, those that swim, those that crawl, those that fly, and the plant Nations, eventually all will be affect from the oil disaster in the Gulf.

The dangers we are faced with at this time are not of spirit. The catastrophe that has happened with the oil spill which looks like the bleeding of Grandmother Earth, is made by human mistakes, mistakes that we cannot afford to continue to make.

I asked, as Spiritual Leaders, that we join together, united in prayer with the wh*** of our Global Communities. My concern is these serious issues will continue to worsen, as a domino effect that our Ancestors have warned us of in their Prophecies.


I know in my heart there are millions of people that feel our united prayers for the sake of our Grandmother Earth are long overdue. I believe we as Spiritual people must gather ourselves and focus our thoughts and prayers to allow the healing of the many wounds that have been inflicted on the Earth. As we honor the Cycle of Life, let us call for Prayer circles globally to assist in healing Grandmother Earth (our Unc'I Maka).

We ask for prayers that the oil spill, this bleeding, will stop. That the winds stay calm to assist in the work. Pray for the people to be guided in repairing this mistake, and that we may also seek to live in harmony, as we make the choice to change the destructive path we are on.

As we pray, we will fully understand that we are all connected. And that what we create can have lasting effects on all life.

So let us unite spiritually, All Nations, All Faiths, One Prayer. Along with this immediate effort, I also ask to please remember June 21st, World Peace and Prayer Day/Honoring Sacred Sites day. Whether it is a natural site, a temple, a church, a synagogue or just your own sacred space, let us make a prayer for all life, for good decision making by our Nations, for our children's future and well-being, and the generations to come.

Onipikte (that we shall live),

public servants

The exchange works directly for state and public workers and servants. It gives them credit in exchange for the amount of public work they contribute to the community. The more constructive they are based off a base rate the more credit they recieve.

Where I will be in ten years.

Ten years from now I will be in a political job assisting with people in the midlands of South Carolina particularly the rural working class and farmers. As the class of people that feed the nation I find that it is imperative that we assist with making sure they produce as much food as possible. I would like to support local scientists as well that are leading in research on how to produce food more efficiently. I will also be participating in missions to foreign countries to help people with…See More

India Water home

The secret was living on the water via boats common in many developing countries like Myanmar. This is a real Indian boat home made of wood and this provides a shelter for many peoples around the world.
