Wisdom of the Indigenous Elders

"Everything on the earth has a purpose, every disease an herb to cure it, and every person a mission. This is the Indian theory of existence." -- Christal Quintasket - Salish

The elders of the indigenous nations have been telling the world for hundreds of years that there would be a time when their wisdom would be needed. This time would come after many years of people ignoring and/or silencing the wise women and men (shamans, medicine people, gurus, prophets, lamas, grandmothers, grandfathers and all other spiritual people) around the world, who warned that not honoring Mother Earth would lead to dire results.

Now, the elders are coming together in venues large and small across all the continents. They are sharing their wisdom; sharing their rituals and sharing their culture. For many indigenous people, this is the fulfillment of prophecy that told how the Native People would save Mother Earth as well as the four-legged, finned, winged and crawling ones. 

Once, I was told I had a choice to be part of the solution or part of the problem. I want to be part of the solution. I want to do what I can to help those in need, to save the environment from destruction and to teach love, respect and acceptance for all. 

On this Indigenous People's day, may we all look into our lives and ask, "Am I part of the solution or part of the problem?" May we join with all those who wish to heal and nurture the world. May peace, prosperity and Love find us all.
