''Feminism(s) saved my life. Happy IWD everyday to all genders resisting and thriving despite heteropatriarchy. Honouring Indigenous sisters all across Turtle Island, nonstatus and migrant women on whose bodies exploitation is legally sanctioned, women around the world who are supposedly being liberated by imperial missions, thousands of women behind bars in prisons and detentions centers, transfolk and sex workers on the streets who we are told 'had it coming', women toiling in factories and fields to fill the consumption needs of Western capitalism, and mammas and caregivers laying roots for the next generation of rebellion. And big love to women and trans folks of colour in my life who are resisting capitalism and colonialism's logic of isolation and competition by being as loving to each other as they are dangerous to the systems they confront.'' Harsha Walia

(Mar 28) The Dragon Arts Collective is a new arts and healing (yoga, meditation) space that opened in Winnipeg's Exchange District. Their premier art exhibition featured the work of David Boulanger (Gwiiwzens Dewe'igan /Little Boy Drum - Peguis First Nation). The exhibition began on January 31st and concluded Friday night. I first met Dave in 2000 when he was an actor in the Winnipeg Fringe Festival, he's since become a successful musician and now his art work has garnered a well deserved exhibition. The exhibition entitled 'NIIGAANI OSKAABE' meaning Lead Helper is intended to be a calling to Indigenous people, the artists, and healers of Turtle Island and abroad, to join in on the celebration of freedom and healing through Art & Music. His artist statement notes "My hopes are that my call to them will be answered and that the echo yet to return will bring healing." David is also known as a singer /songwriter and front-person of BURNT-Project 1 which formed in 2001. He is known for creating a cultural mos ...

This was the Best of show in Charlotte. "Turtle Island" Done by Bill Johnson. I talked with Bill and found out that this is basswood, not walnut as I had thought! The piece is very professional, clean, and the chip carving is incredible. The mount is about 36" across, a slab from a maple burl. Bill is an all around pleasant guy, very easy to talk too.
POCTALK Friday February 28th The Sleepless Goat Cafe POCTALK was born in the conversations, solidarity, struggle, and fed up feels of a few local people of colour. This event aims to give a space and a mic to self-identified people of colour and/or indigenous people to share their poetry, stories, jokes, songs, histories, resistance, and lives. POCTALK seeks to create community for us, challenge the communities that are unsafe for us, and foster room for our narratives to be brought together. Come out, come speak, come listen!

It doesn't matter what kind of native you are so long as you are to this continent so as a guy who's getting into the film business and understands just how casting works, I disagree with some Mesheeka that still dwell on the Selena movie because do you see us mad about Wes Studi, a Cherokee, playing Geronimo or playing Black Elk, a Sioux? No because native is native. It's not that we are out to say Native Americans are a homogeneous race we never said that what we're saying is you shouldn't let your national ride get in the way of NATIVE PRIDE. Or should we get mad that Litefoot, the Cherokee and Chichimeca rapper and actor, played Hiawatha, an Iroquois hero? NO! And I don't and I am Longhouse. The fact is, making Cemanahuac our continental name and nation is a priority (Along with Turtle Island we can have more than one just as Asia is also sometimes called the Orient) And see I know how casting also works so if not enough Mexican actresses auditioned or were good enough at acting to play Selena, they . ...
"I am African Native American Excellence. I am the reflection of my Ancestors. I am Imoteph as well as Chief Seqoya. I am Hannibal Barca who defeated The Romans. I am Chief Tuscaloosa who killed Hernando Desoto during the Spanish Inquisition in Alabama during the early 1500's. I am Chief Sitting Bull and I am Nat Turner. I am a Fredrick Douglas and I am Crazy Horse. I have the blood of true warriors run through my body. I am Africa I am Turtle Island no matter how much White Supremacy tries to separate us into believing we are different we come from the same roots just different branches of the family tree and my duty is to serve the will of my ancestors and make them proud not ashamed therefore I am African Native American Excellence." -Orlando D Henry
Dear non-Indigenous ppl inhabiting the Western Hemisphere just a friendly reminder: this is Turtle Island, speak Lakota/Tlingit/Mvskoke/etc.
 Please make this travel today…..I am Back home in Capitol City after a trip to Toronto to meet with campaigners from Defenders of the Land and Idle No More and the emerging Energy east Campaign. I wanted to express that we are in a wave of reaction from our foes in the Energy & Extractive Industry Sectors and from the right wing media and Canadian Government. You will see many attempts on both sides of the boarder to discredit the incredible resiliency of our Indigenous Peoples and our powerful Indigenous Social movement rising with other social movements across Turtle Island. They will attempt to use systemic mechanisms built on race, class and gender divisions but make no mistake, we got them on the run… A TransCanada Pipeline Blew up in the night sky of Southern Manitoba last night showing how crazy this industry is….the Director of Canada's Security Intelligence Service (Former Indian Affairs Minister) Chuck Straul resigned due to the conflict of interest of him spying on Indigenous Peoples in ...

Changes then in your experience As mine here in North America what we call Turtle Island
We have many warrior societies defending the land and the people across Turtle Island. We all have a common goal, and that is to protect our natural resources and our way of life for our children, grandchildren, and for our grandchildren's grandchildren. It's imperative that we conduct ourselves with respect when it comes to each other's ideals and how we relate with creation. Each individual has different understandings and ideals, we are not suppose to force ourselves to all be the same. It is about utilizing each others medicine and continuously learning from each others differences to reach a common goal. We all want to have good feelings and live peacefully. We're all different, but we all have something to add to that road to peace and prosperity. We can't have Longhouses calling each other down anymore. It doesn't matter if you follow the Great Law of PEACE or the Handsome Lake Code. It shouldn't matter if you follow a different set of Native teachings, Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Buddhi ...
[Start to write on: 01-11-14 at: 02:07a.m. post at: 03:49a.m.c.s.t.] Long investigation ;-) Since I have Blackfoot Indigenous running in my veins the following is all the more interesting to me, especially, if you believe in coincidence, my father didn't, he said there's no such thing as coincidence lol ;-) The so-called coincidence, i.e., Jung/Pauli Synchronicity is this: [1] I, we, my brothers and sisters have Blackfoot blood running in their veins, and [2] Adrian Frost and a Blackfoot Indigenous named, I think, trying to remember, Bobbie Brown??, not sure, a Human Being born on Turtle Island, went to the West, Wyoming?, to a Blackfoot reservation and brought Wakan Tanka HERE to within a few miles of my home town Muscoda Wisconsin, to where I went and helped build the fences on the day the Buffalo, Wakan Tanka "The Great Spirit", the "Great Mystery" arrived. So I guess that has something to do with why I live here, who knows the Universe if replete with the Great Mystery ;-) [3] Adrian Frost invited the ...
Love and Blessings Ma's!!! I am traveling with the Peace Sun Flame from the Dec. 31st catching of the Sun through the crystal, into the tobacco, into our flame we prayed with for New Years. BJ took the flame home after our Women's circle to keep it going. For those who want to catch the flame and join in the Sun prayer connect with BJ. I am taking it to Florida and hopefully across Turtle Island and up west coast. Would be great to keep the flame through out the year as an anchor point of peace with the Sun and all of us Beloveds. It is like a full amplification portal between us and out prayers. I never dreamed driving with a Sun flame could be so profound. I am going to see how to post on you-tube so I can do little up dates. The Sun kept having me randomly stop places that had the sun's name in the place or the person I was randomly talking too had the Sun's name in their name. I had to giggle when I realised my travel partner has an agenda. SO cute and sweet our Sun. Who knew the Sun was so playful? E ...

" . . . between the Christianity of this land, and the Christianity of Christ, I recognize the widest possible difference--so wide, that to receive the one as good, pure, and holy, is of necessity to reject the other as bad, corrupt, and wicked. To be a friend of the one, is of necessity to be the enemy of the other. I love the pure, peaceable, and impartial Christianity of Christ: I therefore hate the corrupt, slaveholding, women-whipping, cradle-plundering, partial and hypocritical Christianity of this land." Frederick Douglass, 'Narrative of The Life and Times of Fredrick Douglass.' 1845. This book tells the story of Frederick Douglas, in his own words. He was born a slave here on Turtle Island, learned to read and write primarily by his own wit, managed to secure his freedom through escape, and became a well known figure of our history. He has the awesome grace to tell the truth without being hateful or vengeful towards those who roughly used and abused him and his compatriots. The truth is pain ...
Leadership of Turtle Island originals is a must for me. Only we understand the restoration of Turtle Island. Only we have the tools and the original instructions to complete that task.
This is what all Native people of Turtle Island should know and all people in general. I refuse to let our people get taken for granted and taken advantage of any more and for the dream of all people being united being recognized as a reality to those that want to live in harmony with one another. Wake up, shake your demons off, and dream and become to your full potential. YOU are from a noble, intelligent, and passionate group of people.

The History of the "U.S. Constitution", We Weren’t Taught in School: July 2, 2012 • By Molly Larkin. (U.S. Constitution).If you’re like me, I was taught in grade school that the "U.S. Constitution" was based on ancient Greek democracy. This is quite a stretch, since ancient Greece government was not democratic. My research into what children are taught today about the "origin" of our government is also disappointing. Apparently, the founding fathers simply created ...

As you can tell by my pictures, I made it to Kuala Lumpur, but I was simply 2 lazy to tell you about Ko Tao so far. So here it is: Ko Tao is the smallest of the three Islands in the Gulf of Thailand, with Samui being the biggest. Ko Samui is also infested with a lot of package tourists, and if you're a Backpacker it's propably not a nice place to stay. Ko Phangan is maybe half the size of Samui, and Package Tourists, and only the young ones, only come here the Full Moon Party, but Ko Tao is different. It's a tiny island, the next Airport is 3 hours by boat in both directions, and it's a pretty chaotic island including Power Blackouts and flodded Streets. So it's not good for German Pensioniers in their Sandals with Socks, but it's still living of Tourism, just the Backpackers ;) And of course, it's living of diving. Diving is huge on Ko Tao, which translated means Turtle Island. But there are no more turtles around, cause, and I'm only quoting: Asians eat everyhing. But know let's start with my journey: A ...

I'm just enjoying Turtle Island's birthday while awaiting fireworks over Ottawa River.
Turtle Island, USA. - If the Keystone XL pipeline increases the carbon content of the atmosphere, President Barack Obama will turn it down, he said on Tuesday June 25 in a speech on climate change. That was one of many pronouncements he made while speaking at Georgetown University as he took up the mantle on protecting the planet for future generations, outlining a number of initiatives to combat the warming of the Earth. “Allowing the Keystone pipeline to be built requires a finding that doing so would be in our nation’s interest,” Obama said. “And our national interest will be served only if this project does not significantly exacerbate the problem of carbon pollution. The net effects of the pipeline’s impact on our climate will be absolutely critical to determining whether this project is allowed to go forward. It’s relevant.” He highlighted cleaner fuels and more sustainable energy sources, such as wind and solar power, as well as natural gas. He called for augmenting natural-gas produ ...

Mni Indigenous Water Summit by Elissa J. Tivona and Christinia Eala “Mni wicozani is a native Lakota phrase meaning ‘through water there is life.’ Without the precious medicine of mni (clean water) life on earth will perish. Indigenous people across Turtle Island (… North and South America on European maps) refuse to let that happen.” Visionaries from across the globe gathered on May 22, 23 and 24 for the Mni Indigenous Water Summit hosted in Eagle Butte on Cheyenne River Reservation. Organized by Candace Ducheneaux, daughter of four-time Cheyenne River tribal chairman, the Summit’s goal was to explore and advance practical strategies for bringing the earth’s hydrologic cycle back into balance, or what Lakota people call “wicosani.” Among attendees was Lakota activist, Christinia Eala, Executive Director of Tiyospaye Winyan Maka. Eala speaks of traditional life-ways that motivate many of her people to stand against despoliation of earth and water: ‘Wicosani’ is a Lakota word meaning ...
Since 1996, Canadians have marked National Aboriginal Day on June 21. It is a time to celebrate the cultures and contributions of the original peoples of Turtle Island. CUPE Ontario is proud to support this annual celebration and our members who organize and participate in events on this day.
Update from Rick S. for Wednesday: Another fabulous day at UYC Summer Sailing Camp! The winds were calm at the start of the day -- but we "knew" (OK, "hoped!!!") they would build through the day, and, sure enough -- they did! Our first treat of the day was an awesome lesson on the Weather by the remarkable Ms. Linda Merkle, a long-time sailor and friend of all on Lake Lanier. Boat rigging, pizza party (thanks to Trena McCarthy for organizing!) and a wonderful day of sailing, as I hope you can tell from all the smiles in the photos. The larger boats went on an adventure all the way around Turtle Island (take a look sometime -- it's a LONG way out there!). Finished off the day with swim-time around the new swim dock -- lots of laughs and energy. We do our best to wear them out for you! Tomorrow -- weather permitting -- the adventure in the big boats! Looking forward to another terrific day!
Tears4Justice request for volunteers and donations Tears4Justice is preparing for a very powerful journey across Canada from the East coast to the West coast in honour of the Missing and Murdered Women and Children along the Highway of Tears and all women and children across Turtle Island. We are a Non-Profit group of Grassroots volunteers and family members of Missing or Murdered loved ones or volunteer social activists who fight for justice for our lost loved ones and promote actions geared towards Eliminating Violence against Women and Children in Canada. We provide a voice for those who have been silenced for decades after losing loved ones with little or no options for proper justice, closure, equality or accountability. We raise awareness on the far too many issues regarding the root causes and the lack of resources available to protect our women and children. This fifth walk is inspired by family members in the East who had met the W4J walkers at the end of their 2011 walk. The families asked for . ...

So I'll be driving down to North Carolina Thursday to pick up my new truck! From there I'll be driving west to Boone, NC to visit Eustace Conway at Turtle Island Preserve the rest of the weekend. He wants to shoot some videos and do some other things. Anyone interested in going down there NEXT weekend, let me know. He needs help chopping firewood.. and if you have mechanics skills he needs some minor work done on his Toyota trucks. Get at me if you'd like to visit next weekend while I'm down there and check out Turtle Island and volunteering your time to help out!
Ohhh Woahaa!! Am watching a show called America Unearthed and it is showing ancient Celtic (Mithra) and Egyptian (Anubis) symbolic carvings over 1500 years old in caves in Arkansas and Oklahoma...the carvings light up on the equinoxes and tell the story of the journey of life and death...they reckon they were carved by Celtic tribal people and that the Egyptian symbolism and beliefs had been incorporated into their Mithraeic religion!!! They believe that these Celts had fled to Turtle Island long long before Columbis because practitioners of Mithraism were persecuted back in their own homelands.
Eustace Conway at Turtle Island is free to continue his great work. NC bill 774 passed .. it will exempt "primitive" structures from building codes! It passed 113 to 0! (copy and pasted from Elithia's status!!!) I wonder if this applies to Earthaven. Check it out Martha!
Three years ago today, The Cultural Recyclists (a crazy cross-country bike crew) set off from the Delaware Bay on a voyage across "Turtle Island" exploring sustainability. We traversed the Great Allegheny Passage, then through the midwest, volunteering at many ecovillages along the way. We slept amidst wild Bison in Yellowstone Park, and dumpster dived 15 pounds of delicious swiss cheese on the Oregon Coast. We slept inside redwood trees along the 101 Highway. 6 months later we crossed the Golden Gate Bridge and celebrated in San Francisco...This journey tested all our fears, brought us to tears, and inspired our peers...It was an experiment in radical collaboration and interdependence. I am infinitely grateful to all the amazing beings who participated in this epic journey...Charlie Kain, Ananda Gingrich, Tina Sapphire Berry, William Morgan, Chris Romain, Adam Hintz, Anne Hintz, Amy Rose Brt, Red Russell, and so many more!

Well if we didn’t know it yesterday, we definitely know it today . . . . Hurricane season has started. Of course, Tropical Storm Andrea won’t stop us!! What’s a little wind and about 5-6 inches of rain?? Not much in the overall big picture. We needed the rain, and the wind is knocking down all the little branches that needed to come down anyway and tomorrow or Sunday, we will go out and clean our yards of the debris that the wind has kindly provided us for us. But for the visitors to our little island, a little creativity is needed! What to do on a windy and rainy day?? Of course, you can walk on the beach to see the ocean churning, but what else?? Maybe a little shopping in some of our quaint shops that are here on the island and in Southport?? And of course, later on this evening, come to Turtle Island and enjoy one of our specials starting with a local favorite, Conch Fritters or homemade Crab and cheese stuffed Jalapenos. It’s Friday, and tonight only, Prime Rib Au Jus or one of our o ...
In the 30 years of its formal history, the American Indian Movement (AIM) has given witness to a great many changes. We say formal history, because the movement existed for 500 years without a name. The leaders and members of today's AIM never fail to remember all of those who have traveled on before, having given their talent and their lives for the survival of the people. At the core of the movement is Indian leadership under the direction of NeeGawNwayWeeDun, Clyde H. Bellecourt, and others. Making steady progress, the movement has transformed policy making into programs and organizations that have served Indian people in many communities. These policies have consistently been made in consultation with spiritual leaders and elders.The success of these efforts is indisputable, but perhaps even greater than the accomplishments is the vision defining what AIM stands for. Indian people were never intended to survive the settlement of Europeans in the Western Hemisphere, our Turtle Island. With the strengt ...
I don't believe in the "Bering Strait Theory" of how Indigenous people came to populate the Americas aka Turtle Island... We were here before the Asian people began migrating through that land bridge and way before the European invasion.
May 10th 2013 I had a wonderful experience at Edenton’s NC 300th Year celebration. I was so very proud of the Meherrin Chief Wayne Brown and tribal members, Mohawk Chief, American Indian Mothers Members, Clan Mother Pura Fe and many other Iroquois nations. Together the United Tribal Natives showcased and brought forth the cultures of the First Peoples of Turtle Island. The air was filled by the spirit of the Creator as the citizen of Eden watch on and the dynamic power that surrounded the celebration, because of the presence of the ancestors of both native and citizen of Edenton citizen colonial period. The Mohawk Chief recited the first thanksgiving prayer in the Mohawk language how angelic and beautiful were the words. Chief Wayne Brown shared in the history of the Iroquois people and the welcoming of the colonial ships that arrived at these ports and was accepted into OUR LANDS. Pura Fe sang and drummed, everything about her was in order her hair, clothing, jewelry, songs, music and most pleasantly . ...

Watching 'History of the World in 2 Hours', it is so in accurate and deceptive when it comes to 'discovering' Turtle Island commonly known as the western hemesphere. Up to the point to where Columbus was lost, there was nothing depicted about the Peoples of the Western Hemisphere, yet the show talked about every other society before Columbus. We are and have been erased from the story as told by the Alien society on this stupit and deceptive show. We are not from monkeys or apes like the Alien Airen Anglo Saxon. Geeze.
Native Americans founded Turtle Island (their name for America) about 50,000 years ago.  The name ‘USA’ or ‘US’ was the name that European settlers put on their government in 1782 (some say 1776).  So the Native Americans were here for about 48,000 years before anyone thought of the USA!  Anyway, anthropologists and archeologists have traced the origins of the Navajo back to the northwestern part of North America (largely in Alaska, the Yukon, and the NWT) and a tribe of Althapaskan tribes known as the Dene or Dene-ta between 1300’s and the 1600’s.  In fact the Navajo refer themselves as Dine which means “the people”.  They hunted deer, mountain sheep, antelope, and rabbit, and made their clothing from these animal skins. They started raiding Spanish settlers to get horses for hunting and fighting, and became known as great North America warriors by the Spanish and other surrounding Indian tribes. They were an agricultural society which grew corn, beans, and squash in fields that the ...
For those who liked my story here is part 2! It only took about 2 or 3 hours for Turtle Island to get into view and a minute or so for the boat to dock on the island where they could see a middle aged man with a turtle shell on his back. “Hi, I am Stefan, descendant of Krillin and the android no 18 and I would like to train under you, Master Leo”. Stefan said with a bow. “This is such a waste of time but, I am Victor son of the head of Capsule Corporation president and would also like to train”. Victor said, with a bored expression on his face, “I have new students?!” Master Leo exclaimed “Well I would be happy to teach the descendant of one of my predecessors students”. Said Master Leo “Alright then let’s start training already”. Victor said “Do not mock the teacher Victor”. Stefan whispered “Why not, he looks like a moron with that shell on his back anyways”. Victor said “You’re talking to loud Vic, stop pointing out his moronic appearance”. Stefan said “Uum you rep ...
~We need to learn from the Native traditions. For perhaps as long as twenty thousand years, the Native people lived harmoniously on Turtle Island, so that the first Europeans who arrived here was able to describe it as a beautiful, unspoiled wilderness, a virtual paradise. But in the short period of four hundred years since the first Europeans arrived, this continent has become riddled with ecological disasters and pollution from sea to sea...why...~ ~Black Dawn, Bright Day~
May8: Enbridge AGM - no consent, no pipelines. 12:45pm at Metropolitan Conference Centre, 333-4 Ave SW. We are coming together to support the First Nations of Northern BC and Alberta and those across Turtle Island who are being affected or resisting Enbridge's pipelines of dirty tar sands dilbit. Enbridge has a shameful history of spills. US regulators described the response to the Kalamazoo River disaster as being run by the Keystone Cops. Enbridge operates a network of aging pipelines that are being used for new purposes and in new ways that pose unacceptable risks to both people and the environment. Enbridge wants to build a new pipeline to transport tar sands oil to the BC coast, crossing over 1,000 streams, tunnelling through impassible mountains to fill tankers for a dangerous voyage where one slight error could forever destroy BC's pristine coastal waters. Enbridge wants to reverse a 38 year old convention oil pipeline to ship tar sand bitumen through the great lakes to Montreal. Enbridge has had o ...

Makapu’u Ridge Duc Ong/Việt Tide On a sunny, clear day, I joined two others on a morning hike along the summit ridgeline of the South-Eastern Ko’olau mountains on the island of O’ahu, Hawai’i. The ridgeline hike starts at scenic parking area, located at the tip near Makapu’u point. Instead of taking the more popular paved path heading towards the ocean, we opted for a road less traveled, heading up the spine of the Ko’olau mountains. The Makapuu Ridge trail is a roller-coaster of a hike that climbs up and down the crest of the Ko’olau and provides magnificent views from the cliffs overlooking the coastline. Crossing the highway and climbing the initial path near a black fence leads us up to one of the first spectacular views of the offshore islands, including Manana Island (also known as Rabbit Island because of its similarity to a rabbit) and Kaohikaipu (Turtle Island). Early on along the hike, one gains a bird’s eye view of Sea Life Park and Oceanic Institute. One of the more intere .. ...
Andrew Cabot OPEN LETTER TO CHIEFS: We request a halt to the agreements made under the framework : Made In Nova Scotia Process. We feel we have not been properly consulted. We understand that there have been many successful programs and avenues that have come from these agreements but also understand that the Made in Nova Scotia framework agreements are now re-writing our inherent Treaties. Our treaties, we believe, were made to withstand the assault on our cultural and traditional livelihood. They were carefully constructed to withstand our time here on Turtle Island. We also understand that our treaties have been instrumental in the success of our endeavours to secure our livelihood and uphold the Canadian Government's instruction, by the Crown, to honour their promises to provide for our education, our health and our right to sustain our people through hunting and fishing. In 2012, the Canadian Government passed Bill C-45, which directly disregarded these agreements in our treaties. Our people are shoc ...

Anishinaabe In Ontario, the term Anishinaabe most often refers to the three nations that formed a Confederacy known as the Three Fires Confederacy: Ojibway (Faith Keepers), Odawa (Warriors and Traders), and Potawatomi (Fire Keepers). The Anishinaabe have a long and proud history: • Language of these three nations belongs to the Algonkian family. • They share similar cultural practices and spiritual beliefs. • History of Anishinaabe began on the east coast of Turtle Island (North America) long before European contact. • Seven prophets came to the Anishinaabe people at that time and foretold of the European people and future hardships. • For survival, they urged the people to migrate and their prophecy is known as the Seven Fires Prophecy. • Seven Fires refers to the seven places of migration along the way: St. Lawrence River (of a turtle-shaped island), Niagara Falls, the Detroit River, Manitoulin Island, Baawating (Sault Ste. Marie), Duluth, and finally Madeline Island (Wisconsin). • In 1650 ...

General Information Haiti Law: Historical Background Haiti is located on the western side of the island of Hispaniola, in the Caribbean Sea. With an area of 27,750 square kilometers and an estimated population of 8.5 million, Haiti has a high population density. More than half of its people live in rural areas. The country has an average life expectancy of 60 years, high rates of infant and maternal mortality, and a GNP per capita of USD 480. Haiti is classed among the least developed countries in the world.[1] Christopher Columbus discovered Hispaniola on December 5, 1492. He established the first Spanish settlement in the Western Hemisphere, Fort Nativity, on December 25, 1492. During the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries French buccaneers used Turtle Island, off the northern coast of Hispaniola, as the base for their commercial activities in the Caribbean, invading and eventually occupying an extensive territory on the northwest side of the island. In 1697, by the Treaty of Ryswick, Spain recognized ...

Goog Morning my brothers and sisters of Turtle Island; How is everyone this morning? My mother, the late Grace Edith Robinson Sr, memorial (1 year since her passing) is coming near; so, I want to extend and express to my children, grandchildren, brothers, sisters, aunties, uncles, nieces, nephews, all the extended families, relatives and friends my late mom, my most sincere love, hugs and kisses to each and everyone of you. I know it has been very hard this past year in losing our mom; It has been tough for me as well; but I have total trust, belief and faith in our Creator; for without our Creator as my guide in everything that I am and do, I wouldn't exist; our Creator is who keeps me going each and every day; so it is with that trust, belief and faith that I know our mom is in a better place now; and that is comforting to know; We, all that are left behind, must remain a close loving family and cherish the time our Creator gave us to be with our mom; I do sent my condolences, love, respect, honor in pu ...
I had to look up the Song of Solomon reference, but I found this e-mail thread sent to me interesting, comments are in reverse order; 2 comments, the 1st one-liner, is mine, the 1st thought in my head, and there is a 2nd lengthy comment, followed by the original text: "The United States was called Turtle Island by the Native Americans." "Historically, aristocracies arose first through physical power, then through riches financing that power, and as we became more "civilized" through riches alone, and hiring the power through lawyers and governments. So now our aristocracies no longer have titles such as king, prince, count or baron, but instead, congressman, senator, president, prime minister, CEO, billionaires, etc. For them, the laws that govern you and I do not exist, with the exception of the most scandalous and egregious acts, and only then, when it tickles the fancy of the public usually in some salacious way.

Okay, so my wife had us running around cleaning and reorganizing the greenhouse and our pump house which has numerous windows and a heat source in the 65-70 degree F well water. All of this could have been done at the end of the last season but... She is getting close to starting up our cold weather tolerant starts. I think she is a little bit early. It's hard to judge when stuff can go in the ground in the Klamath Basin because it is all dependent on soil temperatures and your ability to cover crops at a moments notice once you put them out. I have been watching the snow accumulations melt from my 7200 sg. ft. garden area. As the snow melts, watch how water collects (an indication of soil permeability) and runs off (slope aspect). An entertaining and informative read is, "What A Plant Knows, A Field Guide to the Senses" by Daniel Chamovitz (ISBN 978-0-374-28873-0).

All of this water empties in to the Hudson's Bay and Gulf of Mexico. The chemicals used in the process of Fracking and the Oil Sands are incredibly potent neurotoxins that are causing mutations and tumours and all different kinds of AWFUL in the animals which affect EVERYONE on Turtle Island...but the Idle No more presenters were still in the victim mentality more or less saying "Pity us! look at how bad we got it" while the rest of everyone in the World has got it bad...but...without the Water protections People won't have it bad anymore because they just won't have it.they'll be dead.
Railroad ties are spaced about 2 feet apart Turtle Island is 3000 miles across That means the transcontinental railroad took more than 8 million ties probably many more.   There are dozens, hundreds, maybe thousands or rail lines across the continent 300,000 miles; a staggering 800 million ties but what strikes me the most is that each one is dipped in creosote.   Staining the wood black the stench of it thickens the air like sludge on a hot, windless afternoon on the tracks.   They run along the ocean mile after mile, slowly leaching into the soil it is a guarantee; the surety of genocide hidden beneath the veneer of "efficiency" and the newfound trendiness of rail travel seeping into our water; the water that is us.   _     A trout 12 inches long and slender as a pike nosing the surface, smelling for food icy water churning down this valley bouncing off sandstones and their remains, small glittering beaches   hard sun and crisp air trees hanging onto the hillside where they can and clustering to ...
Since so many professing Christians have adopted the terminology that many false Native "contextual" teachers have ripped from the pages of secular books and cultural practices dedicated to "other gods", let us look at a couple of them and see if they are "reconcilable" to true Biblical Christianity. Yes, I said that. If you go to a secular book shop, you will find many of the terms/terminology that false Native "contextual" teachers have sneaked into the church under the guise of "reconciliation". So these false "contextual" teachers are not terribly original, nor are they in any way acceptable. 1.) Turtle Island: the Ojibway account, which finds a lot of "commonality" in other Native culture creation stories, finds a mythical figure called Nanaboozhoo, with the help of an assortment of animals, diving to the bottom of the ocean after a great flood, and retrieving a parcel of dirt, placing it on the back of a turtle, dancing an ever-widening circle on the back of the turtle, and with a little help from K ...

hey guys, this is worth reading. THE YEAR 2012 WORLD WILL NOT END IN 2012 By Carlos Barrios Carlos Barrios was born into a Spanish family on El Altiplano, the highlands of Guatemala. His home was in Huehuetenango, also the dwelling place of the Maya Mam tribe. With other Maya and other indigenous tradition keepers, the Mam carry part of the'old ways on Turtle Island (North America). They are keepers of time, authorities on remarkable calendars that are ancient,elegant and relevant. Mr. Barrios is a historian, an anthropologist and investigator. After studying with traditional elders for 25 years since the age of 19, he has also became a Mayan Ajq'ij, a ceremonial priest and spiritual guide,Eagle Clan. Years ago, along with his brother, Gerardo, Carlos initiated an investigation into the different Mayan calendars. He studied with many teachers. He says his brother Gerardo interviewed nearly 600 traditional Mayan elders to widen their scope of knowledge. "Anthropologists visit the temple sites," Mr. Barrios ...
I think its time the grassroots begin to question what their leadership are doing to oppose Bill c45, as well as the other bills that are going through the Canadian parliament because the CONSENT seems to be coming from somewhere for these bills to move forward. There are various boards and committees across Turtle Island that have been "consulted"? This is unclear but according to some information that INM is receiving these boards and committees are "consenting". How can INM continue to oppose when it seems as if there are leadership that are in support of these legislations? These BILLS will extinguish treaty. Make no mistake of that. If we continue to be silent and not declare we are in opposition to these bills than we have given our consent.
Read and understand that this, or something very similar, is the only model of governance in which humanity has a future. We should all think about how we can introduce these ideals into our communities in whatever small steps are available to us, and resist corporate drivers dictating terms of existence. This is what the Occupy Mopvement is all about, returning life to community support and interdependence, away from male-energy dominated power constructs currently accepted as 'normal'.. "In my vision I saw something new. Something like government but unlike it completely. I saw true representation for The People of Turtle Island, starting right here in Kanata. I saw three levels of governance: 1/ The Elders Circle 2/ The Congress of Spokespeople 3/ The Youth Assembly I saw the Youth give the dreams and the vision. The hope and the energy. I saw the Elders give the wisdom and perspective. The guidance and calm. I saw the Congress of Spokespeople combine these things into action, carrying out the will o . ...

This is where we are getting married 09/28/2013 Angelo & Maggie :) Bula Bula ! Grand Beach Weddings Imagine celebrating that special day in an exotic tropical setting; meeting your loved one on a white, sandy beach with a warm breeze stirring the air. On Turtle, weddings are special events, and some of our guests' fondest memories are of the delightful Fijian wedding ceremonies held at sunset on the shores of the famous Blue Lagoon. The bride and groom may dress in traditional Fijian wedding attire made especially for them by the Turtle Island staff members. The cloth is tapa, made from tree bark and hand-painted with traditional Fijian symbols in tan, brown and black. All of the guests, along with the bride and groom, wear garlands of fresh, fragrant flowers around their necks. The trumpeting of conch shells announce the bride's arrival on the wedding raft, called a billi billi. Drums beat ceremonial rhythms as the bride disembarks and is escorted to her groom by two Fijian attendants. As they approach t ...
Handed down as a traditional Cherokee story from grandmother to grandchild, the storyteller cautions that long ago before the Europeans discovered Turtle Island and her indigenous people, the elders of those people warned of the monsters with white eyes yet to come. Similar stories are to be found among the Aztecs and Mexican people. The spirits foretold that the monster with white eyes would cross the great eastern water. The monster would possess evil and terrifying power, and would wreak destruction in its path. The spirits of the animals and trees began to wither. Prophecy states that Mother Earth herself would be devastated and her heartbeat would become faint. The monster was said to devour the children of Turtle Island tribe by tribe, with no escape. If one did survive, its spirit would be dead since it would now be lost and have no connection to its ancestors. The story tells that one day the Earth would begin to sing a death song due to the severity of the harsh conditions. When this happens, the ...

Do Native Peoples have a voice on the matter of immigration? Is it fair to demand Immigrants get it right with the Native Peoples before being granted entry, before being allowed on Turtle Island. I'm all for reforming immigrants.
To residents of Guelph, Toronto, Hamilton, K/W, Ontario more generally, BC, Nova Scotia, Canada, etc. : Last year, the womyn of VDAY (with the invaluable help of Fortnight music) hosted an all-day, in-your-face, dance-your *** off, grrrl-rocking, lgbtq-positive event called the 100 Mile Riot; and not surprisingly it was epic, messy, and full of love for all things musical. Well you're in luck, these ladies are hosting it all over again with 100 Mile Riot part 2, hosting Rouge (!!!), the incomparable DJ Jungle Cat, Matt Damon etc., a 10$ cover for 12 hours of grrrl-rioting music madness. Bonus? This event is a fundraiser for the local Women in Crisis Centre and this year's spotlight campaign on murdered and missing Indigenous women across Turtle Island. I will be dancing in spirit in England, but I wish all the best to Keren Harvey, Catalina Novoa Carrasco, Alisha Halgren, and Spencer Shewen among others. x
The traditional homeland of the Hotinonshón:ni was spread along the Mohawk River Valley and throughout the Finger Lakes district in what is now called New York State. Since the formation of the great Iroquois Confederacy culminating the journey of the Peacemaker over a thousand years before, five native nations shared this part of Turtle Island with respect, sharing, and caring. Starting from the Cohoes Falls, where Hianwátha joined the Peacemaker, nestled between the Allegheny and Catskill Mountains were the Elder Brothers, the Mohawks, protectors of the “eastern door

Hello Friends,   I am re-posting this panel that was organized last winter by the Toronto Environmental Justice Network and Community. The panel feat. some indigenous activists who were asked to give their perspectives on the Occupy Movement. I thought it would still be relevant for all of us in the Movement.

Please do watch it in order 1-4 so that it makes sense.   Thank you, Ekosi Maha     Clayton Thomas-Muller   Occupy Talks: Indigenous Perspectives on the Occupy Movement   1) Thanks Giving Address: does it mean to 'Occupy already occupied lands?'. How does Occupy relate to 500 years of resistance on Turtle Island? Please join speakers Tom B.K.

A long, long time ago, before the White, Black and Yellow races arrived in Turtle Island, the people had a contract with the Creator to be the keepers of our Mother Earth. This had been our focus for thousands and thousands of years and we had learned to honor our role well. Now, Stephen Harper and the Canadian Government want Natives to break this contract and align themselves with the omnibus bill C-45. This we cannot and will never do. IDLE NO MORE!!

Life Prior to European Contact Darla Goodwin Singing Thunderbird Child Twice Standing Women Cree /Ojibway Prior to European contact Indigenous populations were strong and healthy, with diverse and complex societies and languages. Women were valued and held the highest of leadership roles; violence against women and children was unheard of and went against values and spiritual beliefs. Children were raised according to the values of the sacred circle, and resource-rich environments, provided abundant, healthy organic food; and life was thought of as ceremony or prayer. Prior to contact the Aboriginal people of this land lived here for 25 000 years with a population of over 50 million people and the land was untouched.

Aboriginal peoples belonging to what is now called the North American continent and more specifically ...
"A Day of Action.and Now for a Sincere Challenge to my Brothers"     by Robert Animikii Horton           I was somewhere around Port Arthur, seeing the approaching-edge of a new chapter of indigenous history we now see unfolding, when the realization began to take hold.   Four women – Sylvia McAdam, Sheelah McLean, Jess Gordon, and Nina Wilson- sparked and ignited a revolution, Idle No More, unseen in our time or perhaps any other, across Turtle Island.   More women – Dr. Pam Palmater, Janice Makokis, and Tanya Kappo – helped fan those very flames now sweeping the globe, by means of social media teach-ins and presentations which helped bring the vision, message, and understanding further to countless.   And now, in Ottawa, a woman from Attawapiskat First NationChief Theresa Spence – aligned with the concerns which Idle No More spearheaded and brought to the public consciousness - has put her very life on the line to similarly challenge violations to our treaties, sovereignty, and in ...
Regarding the so-called Indian Problem as it used to be referred to. A cursory glance at history will reveal that any society which suffers a fundamental disruption to it's way of life results in a marked increase in violence, family dislocations, drunkenness and drug abuse. I can think of two examples off the top of my head: 1)The Irish Famine of the 1830's resulting in the starvation of millions (even though corn and pork continued to be shipped to the conquering nation, Britain) and emigration to what we call North America, (though out of respect to our first nation brothers and sisters we should call Turtle Island much as we now call those islands west of Rupert Haida Qwaii , and that body of water between the mainland and Vancouver island the Salish Sea). The Irish for the longest time were referred to as low life drunken scumbags, which doesn't sit well with me, being 5th generation, my forefathers and mothers having scraped enough together for passage to Turtle Island. 2)In Britain itself during .. ...
The dawn of 2013 is seeing one of the most exciting mobilizations for indigenous self-determination in recent history -- it’s a time when many are waking up and speaking out against the ongoing injustices committed against Indigenous Peoples in the territory now called Canada. Since April of 2012, the Grand River Indigenous Solidarity (GRIS) Collective has been working within Kitchener-Waterloo and the Grand River watershed to support indigenous activists, protect the land, and help build a movement for decolonization across Turtle Island.   We are very excited to contribute to the growing Idle No More movement, while continuing to support the efforts that have been our primary focus on since we started working together -- campaigns for criminalized Six Nations (Haudenosaunee) land defenders and the Oshkimaadziig Unity Camp. There is more work than ever to be done, and with this in mind, we invite you to consider joining the Collective and working with us to fight for a more just and har ...

I GodBear for go the name that my mother (R.I.P) has named me and for purposes that only the Great Spirit the Creator of Mother Earth has directed me to do I shall remain GodBear. Chief Spence has signed off on her will and her health is failing. Some of the First Nations Chiefs has requested her to stop her hunger strike, why? So in the end the Canadian Government can get what they want? Why have you lost your vision, pride, and honor? Yes, you are all wise and given the positions with in your respected people but just as Sitting Bull and Crazy Horse of the Lakota peoples it goes further than this. The Great Spirit created us as the protectors to the Turtle Island and how much longer will you allow these theives to rob not just you but our children and their futures? According to the government if you could stop Chief Spence from her path in life that has been not put there by you the Canadian Government will say you're a good little ...

It all sounds so wonderfully simple. On the one side, we have Canada, a genocidal, racist, colonial settler state that just wants to rape the land and poison the water. On the other, we have sacred indigenous nations that just want to protect Turtle Island and be spiritual about everything.
First Nations people in Canada (and USA) have strong indigenous rights and this can no longer be denied by any "colonial" form of government which has tried through the centuries to disenfranchise the people and steal their land through chicanery. Trickery and deception can no longer be tolerated. My feeling is that the Harper Government and Queen "Coward" Elizabeth II are trying to do more of the same. But this time, it will not work, for the CREATOR has shown the people all the evil schemes used to STEAL what is not theirs. This letter from the Chiefs of Ontario to all Ontario First Nations members clearly outlines the strong LEGAL standing! Good luck Queen Coward and your lying "Harp"! You have been exposed to the world! Call in the ICC, because Canada has no way to prosecute the criminals. And the British Queen is surely guilty of many crimes of genocide. "Indigenous Nations of Turtle Island have always been organized, self-governing societies. We have developed and operated Nation and community gover ...
Well, I decided to watch "sun news' channel & it reminded me that although the U.S.A. have defeated their racist tea party/republikkkan types once & for all, we on this side of the river have to keep up the fight, keep our strength & spirit going until we defeat the kkkonservative/tea party types over here.once & for all. This is why harper is *** bent to eliminate Indian Nations and sell off the whole of Turtle Island. It's because harper & his friends might realize they cant last. So, we will keep it going, IDLE NO MORE, IDLE NO MORE!

I am a proud anishnabe kwe of Turtle Island. I am proud of who I am and where I’m from, Wikwemikong Unceded Indian Reseve No. 26. I’d like to say how people are so quick to judge and spread negative energy. With the Idle No More Campaign happening around the world, some people are being so racist. I thought racism was apart of the past. Please, educate yourself on Bill C-45 and make sure it’s a reliable source. We, First Nations people are fighting for not only ourselves but for everyone that inhabits Mother Earth. We are fighting for the land and water rights too. The land and the water cannot fight for itself so we must fight for it. When the land becomes inhabitable we will then be a third world country, then what? … is this what it is going to take for your to understand what we are fighting for? Don’t be so quick to judge; we are all human, we have made mistakes but are taking the steps to fix it. I am so greatful for Chief Teresa Spence from the Attawapiskat First Nation who is o ...
Fort Erie,Ontario... There will be a peaceful gathering on January 5th, 2013 at 11am. We will be on the bridge from 1pm-2pm during which time the pedestrian walkway, and our designated lane will be closed to regular traffic.

Please respect that this is a PEACEFUL event and it is our goal to unite in solidarity.
There seems to be a lot of fuss about Tarper meeting with Theresa Spence. While many people are calling this a victory and celebrating. A very large majority of Indigenous people still live in virtual prisons within their own lands. Indian Reservations, the Indian Act, the racist Legislation, and fake Canadian history lessons in all levels of the schools continue to exist. Indigenous women are still being raped and beaten by dark spirits in this "civilized" world, apprehended Indigenous children are still being tortured and abused in "settler" homes, Poverty will continue in the communities of the original inhabitants of this beautiful place called Turtle Island. Without continued pressure from those people like you and I - everything that we hoped for and prayed for will be lost for undetermined generations to come. Warriors of all shapes and sizes need to rise up and seize this opportunity to reclaim our lives from the greedy hands of those who have no heart or kindered spirit. Rise up friends!!!

Centre3 for Print and Media Arts presents the exhibition: M: Stories of Women By Shelley Niro A series of digital photomontages curated by Sally Frater Public Opening Reception: Friday, January 11, 7 – 10 pm JAN 11 – FEB 23, 2013 M: Stories of Women is a series of 12 large-scale digital photomontages. The imagery incorporates elements of portraiture, myth and irony to contest prevailing stereotypes. Niro began the series with the legend of Skywoman, as she felt that the heroine's predicament was not so different from the experiences of her contemporary counterparts. "Skywoman found herself in a difficult position yet managed to land on her feet and keep moving," says Niro. The legend tells that Skywoman originally lived in the sky and fell to the earth while reaching for a drink of water from the Forbidden Tree of Life and plummeted toward Turtle Island. Though the legend portrays her fall to earth as happenstance, in Niro's images she is depicted wearing an aviator's cap and flying goggles, which con ...

"We salute the Idle No More movement and the unity of indigenous people around its calls for justice, as well as the courageous hunger strike of Chief Theresa Spence. We note that this movement belongs to all Indigenous people and was launched by youth and women. Our struggle as Palestinians is the same - rooted in all of our people and finding its greatest strength in youth and women's leadership. Now is the time - from Canada/Turtle Island to Palestine, we must all be "Idle No More" , and take a stand: against colonialism, against occupation, and for self-determination, sovereignty, rights and justice for Indigenous Peoples."

T’was a few nights before Christmas and the wind was howling hard enough for old St. Nick to keep his eye on the forecast, for he didn’t want to disappoint all those who are waiting for him to make his rounds to eat cookies and drink glasses of milk that have been left for him. But his mind is on Turtle Island and the specials that he knows that he is too busy to come by and eat, but knows that after the New Year, he will be able to take a vacation and will want to go somewhere warmer than the North Pole, like Oak Island. But this weekend, he will be thinking about the fried Blue Crab Claw cocktail w/ a key lime chipolte sauce appetizer, along with Prime Rib au jus (Friday’s only) or Fried whole Baby Flounder. He would prefer the Blackened Snowy Grouper w/ Black Beans & rice (after all those cookies and milk, he needs to think healthier). But in the back of his mind, he will think about having dessert, because he does love cranberry bread pudding or hummingbird cake. So if you’re not like St. ...

The Rainbow Dream Vision of Turtle Island (North America) Editor's Note: When the Rainbow Dream Vision was first distributed to the world in 1984, the span of the Twenty Count, was given as 1980 to 2000. The 'Twenty Count' actually has 21 years - however, the culminating year is the 20th, and the 21st is the start of a new beginning or a new Age. By 1987, it was becoming apparent that not all of the Vision was happening. In 1987, Jose Arguelles, the Mayan scholar, revealed the changeover of Mayan Great Cycles would be in 2012/2013. In 1993, many Crop Patterns displayed wheel and key, symbols as given in the first year of the Twenty Count. Therefore, this print of the RDV gives the time of implementation of this amazing vision as 1993 - 2012/2013. Enjoy the Vision & then let's all get out there and Help it Happen. 1999 When Tagashala and the enlightened teachers begin to open the veil of the crack between the worlds, we will see our memory circles. All kivas and sacred power spots will come alive in 1999 a ...
Some feed back from emails I would like to share with you a couple of reflections from students at our school after viewing the Tribal Dance: The tribal dance experience I saw yesterday was incredibly enjoyable. I liked the dancing, specifically the smoke dance and the hoop dance. It was cool to learn about the traditions and stereotypes about natives. I liked learning about the name of North America being Turtle Island and the drum beat symbolizing mother nature's heartbeat. I learned alot about aboriginal people, the dancing was amazing and it was a truly unforgetable experience. Grade 6 student Dr HD Taylor Public School I found the tribal vision dance was very unique, cool and something I've never seen before. I thought it was amazing how these people danced and didn't seem to get tired, the costumes were so interesting and unique, I loved seeing what the group would have on next! I was always excited to see. The hoop dance was so cool, the way she suddenly had a new hoop, it was very interest ...
Response to Legislation Idle No More calls on all people to continue to oppose and reject all imposed legislation originating from the federal government. The unilateral imposition of these Bills is in direct violation of the Treaties and the Treaty relationship that the Original peoples of Turtle Island made with the British Crown. Indigenous Peoples and nations have not been consulted and therefore, the actions taken by the federal government does not reflect the international standard of Free Prior and Informed consent. The continued imposition of federal legislation on Indigenous Peoples and governments’ is not in line with the legal principles of “acting in good faith” and maintaining the “honour of the Crown”. There are many nations taking action(s) to reflect acts of Indigenou...s nationhood, sovereignty and jurisdiction in response to the passing of legislation such as Bill C-45 and we must continue on this path. When we stand strong and believe in our ways and assert acts of Nationhood, ...
Supporters of Turtle Island: Good news is to be celebrated. Here is an update from the result of your petition and our talk with Dan Tingen and the NC Building Codes Council. Thank you everybody for signing the petition to keep Turtle Island and traditional building alive into the future. We had over 10,000 signatures on the petition by the time we met with the codes council on a state level. That got their attention. That was good! “My love goes out to you in thanks for your support. “ said Eustace Conway. He addressed the council in a heartfelt story of severe need for support and relief. They responded with an apology that there is not already an allowance in our state codes for natural, sustainable, traditional architecture that would permit us to operate and not be shut down due to an inadequate gap in codes. Secondly, they made a commitment to help research any way they could find us a niche or variance, but cautioned that realistically their track would take 12-36 months to create that law ...
Why the Prosperity Team? The Prosperity Team concept is based on an Ojibway Teaching shared with some local Anishinabek years ago by Elder Peter O'Chiese. We as a people always understood arrows bring good to the people. Arrows bring food, helped us defend our land, and brought pride to our people. Arrows always pointed to good. Arrows brought prosperity to us. Arrows brought us a prosperous ...mind, body, spirit and emotions. Prosperity brings balance.

Thank goodness all that fog and rain appear to be gone!! Of course, old man winter is showing his ugly head by turning the weather on the rather brisk side, if not downright cold, but it is that time of the year. With Christmas less than two weeks away (sorry for the reminder, I’m not ready either), I wouldn’t mind a little “dusting” of snow to wake up to for that warm family tradition on Christmas morning. But at least today, the sun is shining and it’s a beautiful day and the weather is calling for at least a sunny weekend, so everyone enjoy and stop by Turtle Island for a Turtle Dove Martini or a New Castle Brown Ale or Winter Lager. For our appetizer special, we are doing Rockin Bienville (combination of Oysters Rockefeller and Bienville) and for entrée specials, a local favorite of fried whole Baby Flounder and a Caribbean Grilled Swordfish w/ a mango mint salsa and our Friday only special of Prime Rib au jus. Don’t forget about our homemade desserts like Hummingbird cake or Key lim ...

The Sacred Pipe Since anyone can ever recall, in Indigenous circles, the Sacred Pipes used in ceremony represented an agreement of peace and friendship. It is said to have been gifted to the Indigenous Nations of Turtle Island at times dating as far back as the creation of the first human being. It represents inter-tribal sanctity and the Creator’s presence, particularly when it is invoked and smoked. It has allowed for peace between two nations who are in some sort of conflict, to resolve their differences and make the sacred agreement by smoking the pipe in the presence of the Creator and the truth, and untruths are thus not to be spoken. It brings into the circles they are used in an aspect of creation that makes all parties involved adhere to their agreed terms due mainly to this sacredness that speaks about the special stones used for Sacred Pipes. There is no recollection of violators of this Law of Creation and is evident when peace agreements were reached amongst tribes prior to contact with Eur ...
