About the First Peoples of the World
We are still here, in plain sight…
Many of us are still here, the descendants of the First Ones, and the prodigy (something wondrous, necessary, and of consequence), we have waited to help, and now are anxious to bring back a better world.
We share a vision, a peace, and a knowledge of a place, aka a sacred space, where all men and women share in the wealth of our Creator’s wonders and fruitful blessings… our elders often pray and chant to bring this higher vibration or alternate multiverse and the physical world into greater harmony.
“Each of us is a unique strand in the fabric of this reality. The small efforts we make each day, helping each other, is the foundation for our mutual success, thereby completing the Circle of Life.” ~Ambassador Rodgers, A.G. Ret.
If Not Us, Then Who?
While we are now officially in the Sixth Mass Extinction, World Bank research in 2016 shows that indigenous peoples make up 5% of the world’s population but safeguard 80% of the world’s biodiversity. – learn more
Meet the First Peoples…
Life may have begun in Africa; perhaps in the Olduvai Gorge in Eastern Serengeti, aka modern-day Tanzania. A region of the world that remains largely rural, and hence to a great extent, mostly tribal. Likely, our indigenous brothers and sisters in the very east.
Consider the KeeTooWah (ie; the Western Cherokee) stories, who traveled here to the Americas from “the rising sun”, before the time of stone-age man. Chief Attakullakulla, 1750;
- Cherokee Nation of The United Mexican States
- Cherokee Perspective on Nature
- Sequoyah’s Cherokee Syllabary
- Spirit of the Fire
- State of Sequoyah
- The History of the KeeTooWah One
- The History of the KeeTooWah Two
The Kanaka Maoli (native Hawaiian people), who settled the Hawaiian islands, large and of fine physiques,, who migrated to Hawaii first from the Marquesas Islands, probably about ad 400. A noble people that operated a recognized Kingdom, with over 90 consulates, and trade throughout the modern world, until 1887;
Or the Haudenosaunee aka the “Iroquois Confederacy”, aka the Six Nations, a coalition of the Mohawk (aka Kanien’kehá:ka “People of the Flint”), the Onondaga, Oneida, Cayuga, Seneca, and the Tuscarora (“hemp gatherers“). Iroquois power at its peak extended into present-day Canada, westward along the Great Lakes and down both sides of the Allegheny mountains into present-day Virginia and Kentucky, and into the Ohio Valley;
All of these indigenous peoples and many more, make up the “First Peoples” and the “First Cultures” of this world. Many are still here, many are still living the old ways.
These peoples can teach the modern world better ways…
We can help the world to understand nature better, to better care for our children and elderly, how to fair trade (do business), how to understand “values” and how to put values back into our daily lives, and so much more.
As it was 1,000 years ago, so it is today…
A marketplace is a gathering place and Mahalo.Market, is a place to bring all families of the Earth together.
Throughout history, this is how people meet and share, and in this way exchanging cultures, ideas, and the beautiful things that make each person on this planet unique and therefore so very special.
What the United States Has Done to First Nations
Our very special people, the First Nations of this land they now call America. So much has been taken, so little respected. These things must change…
Look what they have done:
- It’s an RV life for Yurok kids on the California coast
- No one explained: fracking brings pollution, not wealth, to Navajo land
- Questions & Answers about the 2017 Klamath River Ruling
- Salmon and tribal fishing rights
- The Yurok Tribe is the largest tribe in California
- Water Code does not allow Oregon to meddle with Yurok water rights;
- Yurok language
The above is just a taste of what the First Nations have been forced to endure. There are countless cases dating back to colonial days. The First Peoples of this land now called America have been treated unfairly at every level and in every way possible.
Yes, after years of legal battles we win one here and there. But remember, this costs real money and consumes lives. To regain something we already owned. The First Peoples have suffered enough.
It is time for a new way of things…
Like a farmer, we must burn away the vestiges of the old after the crop has been harvested. We need to burn away the old savageness, cruelty, and injustices done to the First Nations of this land, and all the lands of the world.
Listen to the Voices Within
This is the Age of Aquarius and with it comes enlightenment. You need not be Indian to hear the voice of the Great Spirit, He speaks to all of us:
