Statement for Earth Day
We, the Original Caretakers of Mother Earth, have no choice but to follow and uphold the Original Instructions, which sustains the continuity of Life. We recognize our umbilical connection to Mother Earth and understand that she is the source of Life, not a resource to be exploited. We speak on behalf of all Creation today, to communicate an urgent message that man has gone too far, placing us in the state of survival. The Keystone XL Pipeline and the dirty oil that it transports creates an urgent threat to our collective future and poses the greatest immediate risk of contaminating our sacred waters, land, air, our communities and our way of life as the People of the Earth. In time, we will reconcile our differences, but for now we must come together for Mother Earth.
We, the People of the Earth, were instructed that the original wisdom must be shared again when imbalance and disharmony are upon Mother Earth. In 1994, the birth of a white buffalo calf revealed Pte San Win’s (White Buffalo Calf Woman’s) prophecy: “when a white buffalo calf stands upon the Earth it will be the sign of great changes to come”. This prophecy was given to the Pte Oyate, the Buffalo People (Lakota, Dakota, Nakota dialects) to bring forth the sacred message that the winds of change are here. On behalf of our future generations, we urge all Nations and human beings around the world to come together with good minds and prayer as a global community of all faiths to unite spiritually to heal the minds of those that are bringing danger with their decisions.
We are inviting all Nations to the home of the Sacred White Buffalo Calf Pipe Bundle to pray with the sacred fire and one another. This gathering will take place here in Green Grass, SD, lighting the sacred fire on April 23rd, 2014 and ending on the 26th of April. There will be a Sacred Horse Ride on the 25th: with the help of the Horse Nation we will carry our prayers to the sacred fire. We are asking all Nations to pray at their sacred sites as well, if you cannot attend.
In the Sacred Hoop of Life, where there is no ending and no beginning…
Hear my words!
