No Room for Racism on the Sacred Red Road

By Kandace Keithley

Osiyo,

The Ancestors are speaking to us about racism and showing us how the evil ones have used the colour of our skin to divide us.

The Grandmothers and Grandfathers remind us that beneath our many coloured and spotted hides we all share the same belief in the Great Spirit. It is only when we walk the Sacred Red Road of the Ancestors of all Cultures that we realize the connection that will bring us together as Warriors of the Rainbow.

The Sacred Council Fire Of Unity

By Dennis Nagel

May we all gather together as one with our gifts, respect, honor with pride. To stand in unity even when our roads and understandings vary. We are a people aware of our differences, but Creator has placed a unconditional love in our hearts for all our relatives.

It is our Spiritual Path to stop the division socially, politically and Spiritually.

To become aware of the great love of Creator for all its creation and come back to balance in our mind, body and spirit.

A council fire shall be kindled for all the nations. It shall be lit for Cherokee and the Wyandot. We will also kindle it for the seven nations living towards the sunrise, and for the nations that live toward the sunset. All shall receive the Great Law and labor together for the welfare of man.

Giving Thanks for the Land and the People: Gratitude in The Land of the Dish With One Spoon

As a woman of the Oklahoma Cherokee Nation, it is a great privilege to make my home here in the place called Tkaranto (Toronto), known by our Aanishnaabeg relatives and hosts as “The Land of the Dish With One Spoon.”

This particular area on planet earth is known to be sacred, and is designated as a meeting place for the generations to gather from all four Sacred Directions to begin building the New Earth, in accordance with the prophecies of the 8th Fire.

In accordance with the beautiful tradition of Acknowledging the Land and our Aanishnaabeg relatives from all nations, tribes, and clans:

We give thanks to the Great Spirit who has brought us together in this time and place.

We give thanks to our Mother Earth who provides everything we need to live the biimaasiiwin (good life) during our visit with her.

We give thanks to the Ancestors of the Nations who are sharing their homeland with us, and offering us the teachings and wisdom of this place and her people.

We give thanks to the Grandmothers and Grandfathers – the Elders of all Nations who give us their wisdom and love.

We give thanks to the great people of the Mississaguas of The Credit First Nation, upon whose land we are camping – and who are gracious and generous hosts. Chi Miigwetch.

We give thanks for the Medicine Men and Medicine Women who continue to share their powerful lessons, their medicine, and their vision for the #8thGeneration and beyond.

We give thanks for the people of the 5th, 6th, and 7th Generations who are leading the young ones into the creation of the New Earth.

And, we especially give thanks for this 8th Generation – these young ones who are arriving filled with the seeds of stars and wisdom of the Ancients. We ask the protection of the Great Spirit over these children and youth, and ask that our steps be guided in helping them grow to recognize and use their mighty gifts and talents in service to humanity. A’ho.

There are increasing resources to help people understand and begin to practice Land Acknowledgment Ceremonies.

The University of Toronto has a great article with ideas on conducting ceremonies here.

Chi Miigwetch for being here with us during this profound transition.

Chi Miigwetch: The Replicating Super Power

Since I’ve started learning the languages of our gracious hosts here in downtown Tkaronto (Iroquois), through joining the mighty, expanding Medicine Walk being led by the Traditional Indigenous Healers and Medicine People at Anishnawbe Health Toronto, the Ancestors have begun to show me the replicating superpower of Chi Miigwetch.

Obstacles on our Path

The great poet Rumi teaches us it is much more powerful to seek to remove the blockages keeping us from experiencing love than it is to search outside ourselves. This teaching applies to our own personal growth and development and to organizations, communities, and families alike.

When we encounter obstructions or blockages along our paths, these are due to two general situations. Continue reading “Obstacles on our Path”
