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.
A Core Part of Our Mission
It is in great part, the mission of this marketplace to enable remnants of the first peoples to reach all global markets, to share their many treasures, and also the wisdom of our lost cultures.
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;

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;
These, are the First Peoples
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.
These are our people, and it is to these First Peoples, that this marketplace is dedicated. Please know their names and say them for some are here no more.
