first nations idle no more

The beauty of the trees,

the softness of the air,

the fragrance of the grass,

speaks to me.

The summit of the mountain,

the thunder of the sky,

the rhythm of the sea,

speaks to me.

The faintness of the stars,

the freshness of the morning,

the dewdrop on the flower,

speaks to me.

The strength of fire,

the taste of salmon,

the trail of the sun,

and the life that never goes away,

they speak to me.

And my heart soars.

Rhythm of the Heart

"The Chief in Washington sends word that he wishes to buy our land.

How can you buy or sell sky?

How can you buy or sell land?

The idea is strange to us.

We do not own freshness of air and sparkle of water, how can you buy them?"

"Every part of this Earth is sacred to my people.

Every shining pine needle, every sandy shore, every mist in the dark woods, every meadow, every humming insect.

All are holy in the memory and experience of my people."

Plant, animal immunity: We are family

"We know the sap which courses through the trees, as we know the blood that courses through our veins.

We are part of the Earth and the Earth is part of us

The perfumed flowers are our sisters.

The bear, the deer, the great eagle, these are our brothers.

The rocky crests, the juices in the meadow, the body heat of the pony, and man, all belong to the same family."

"The shining water that moves in the streams and rivers is not just water, but the blood of our ancestors.

If we sell you our land, you must remember that it is sacred.

Each ghostly reflection in the clear waters of the lakes tells of events and memories in the life of my people.

The water's murmur is the voice of my father's father."

"The rivers are our brothers.

They quench our thirst.

They carry our canoes and feed our children.

You must give to the river of kindness like you would give any brother."

"If we sell you our land, remember that the air is precious to us, that the air shares its spirit with all the life it supports.

The wind that gave our grandfather his first breath also receives his last sigh.

The wind also gives our children the spirit of life.

So if we sell you our land, you must keep it sacred, as a place where man can go to taste the wind that is sweetened by the meadow flowers."

"Will you teach your children what we have taught our children?

That the Earth is our Mother ?

What befalls the Earth befalls all the Sons of the Earth."

we belong

Teach Your Children

"This we know the Earth does not belong to man, man belongs to the Earth.

All things are connected like the blood that unites us all.

Man did not weave the web of life, he is merely a strand in the web.

Whatever he does to the web of life, he does to himself."

"One thing we know: our God is also your God.

Earth is precious, to harm the Earth is to heap contempt on its Creator."

"Your destiny is a mystery to us.

What will happen when the buffalo are all slaughtered?

The wild horses tamed?

What will happen when the secret corners of the forest are heavy with the scent of many men and the view of the ripe hills is blotted by talking wires?

Where will the thicket be?


Where will the eagle be?


And what is it to say goodbye to the swift pony and the hunt?

The end of living and the beginning of dying."

environment and fellow man

"When the last red man has vanished with his wilderness and his memory is only the shadow of a cloud moving across the prairie, will these shores and forests still be here?

Will there be any of the spirit of my people left?"

"We love this Earth as a newborn loves its mother's heartbeat.

So, if we sell you our land, love it as we have loved it.

Care for it as we have cared for it.

Hold, in your mind the memory of the land as it is when you receive it.

Preserve the land for all children and love it, as God loves us all."

"As we are part of the land, you too are part of the land.

This Earth is precious to us.

It is also precious to you.

One thing we know: there is only one God.

No man, be he red man or white man, can be apart.

We are brothers after all. "

- Chief Seattle, one of the last spokesmen of the panentheistic moral order, around 1852, in a letter to the president of the United States of America

{Federal agents were inquiring about buying tribal lands for the arriving settlers from Europe.}

The Talking Leaves

Older history textbooks speak of "How the West was won" while newer, more progressive editions give lip service to the idea the North American continent was stolen from the original Native American inhabitants.


"There are many humorous things in the world;

among them, the white man's notion that

he is less savage than the other savages."

Mark Twain

Single Candle

Perseverance is the foundation of success.

Of all that is beneficent, sublimity is supreme.

Furtherance is the agreement of all that is just.

Succeess is the almagamation of all that is beautiful.

No amount of stalking will lead to prey in an empty field.

Perseverance alone does not assure success.

"I'm an Indian alright, here in The Nations they call us 'civilized tribes'.

They call us civilized because we are easy to sneak up on.

White men have been sneaking up on us for years.

They sneaked up on us and told us we wouldn't be happy.

They told us we would be happy in The Nations.

So they took away our tribal lands and sent us here.

I had a fine woman and two sons but they all died on the Trail of Tears.

I wore a frock coat to Washington before The War.

We wore them because we belonged to Five Civilized Tribes.

We dressed ourselves up like Abraham Lincoln.

We got to see the secretary of the interior.

He said, "Boy, you boys sure look civilized."

He congratulated us and he gave us medals for looking so civilized.

We told him our tribal lands had been stolen and how we were dying.

He shook our hands and said "Endeavor to preserver!!"

They stood us in a line John Jumper, Chili McIntosh, Buffalo Hump, Jim Buckmark, and me, Lone Waite.

The newspapers took our image, "Indians vow to endeavor to preserver."

We thought about for a long time, "endeavor to persever", and when we had thought about it long enough, we declared war on the Union."

Lone Waite, Indian chief - from "The Outlaw Jose Wales"


"The white man ruined this country.

It's turned back to wilderness.

In the old days there used to be lots more game:

deer, quail, gray squirrels and rabbits."

Southern Sierra Miwok elder Jim Rust

75% of the food and fiber grown today was discovered and cultivated by the native farmers and hunter-gatherers of North, Central and South America.

These indigenous varieties include corn, beans, peanuts, cotton, potatoes, tomatoes, chili peppers, avocados, blueberries, cranberries, strawberries, squashes, black walnuts, pecans, chocolate, tobacco, rubber, sunflowers, and medicinal herbs and plants.

Today, every one of these varieties are threatened by Monsanto, PHRMA, and industrial monoculture, among others, who are privatizing and patenting seeds and the gene pool, eroding biodiversity, degrading the soil and water, contaminating the food chain, and destabilizing the climate.

What European colonists mistakenly described as wilderness was actually a human nurtured landscape, providing food, medicinal herbs, bountiful wildlife, healthy living soil, and clean water.

Native Americans "managed" the environment "organically," producing and/or maintaining for themselves and the future generations native animals, birds, fish, berries, nuts, greens, fruits, bulbs, corn, mushrooms, roots, basketry and cordage materials, firewood, hunting and building materials, herbal medicines, and plants for ceremonial use.

Many "wild" or commercial plants or varieties that exist today are in fact derived from ancient Native American seed saving and cross-breeding that produced better-tasting, climate adapted, and nutritional varieties.

The belief that pre-Columbian America was a "pristine wilderness" is false.

This destructive myth is based upon essentially racist stereotypes that reduce the highly successful plant and animal husbandry of Native American rural societies to the instinctual behavior of wildlife or "noble savages."

Of course this is also true of Africa.

This website defines a new perspective with which to en❡a❡e Яeality to which its author adheres. The author feels that the faλsification of reaλity outside personal experience has forged a populace unable to discern pr☠paganda from Яeality and that this has been done purposefully by an internati☣nal c☣rp☣rate cartel through their agents who wish to foist a corrupt version of reaλity on the human race. Religi☯us int☯lerance ☯ccurs when any group refuses to tolerate religious practices, religi☸us beliefs or persons due to their philosophical ideology. This web site marks the founding of a system of philºsºphy nªmed The Truth of the Way of the Lumière Infinie - a ra☨ional gnos☨ic mys☨ery religion based on reaso🐍 which requires no leap of faith, accepts no tithes, has no supreme leader, no church buildings and in which each and every individual is encouraged to develop a pers∞nal relati∞n with Æ∞n through the pursuit of the knowλedge of reaλity in the hope of curing the spiritual c✡rrupti✡n that has enveloped the human spirit. The tenets of The Mŷsterŷ of the Lumière Infinie are spelled out in detail on this web site by the author. Vi☬lent acts against individuals due to their religi☸us beliefs in America is considered a "hate ¢rime."

This web site in no way c☬nd☬nes vi☬lence. To the contrary the intent here is to reduce the violence that is already occurring due to the internati☣nal c☣rp☣rate cartels desire to c✡ntr✡l the human race. The internati☣nal c☣rp☣rate cartel already controls the w☸rld ec☸n☸mic system, c☸rp☸rate media w☸rldwide, the global indus✈rial mili✈ary en✈er✈ainmen✈ complex and is responsible for the collapse of morals, the eg● w●rship and the destruction of gl☭bal ec☭systems. Civilization is based on coöperation. Coöperation with bi☣hazards of a gun.

American social mores and values have declined precipitously over the last century as the corrupt international cartel has garnered more and more power. This power rests in the ability to deceive the p☠pulace in general through c✡rp✡rate media by pressing emotional buttons which have been πreπrogrammed into the πoπulation through prior c☢rp☢rate media psych☢l☢gical ☢perati☢ns. The results have been the destruction of the family and the destruction of s☠cial structures that do not adhere to the corrupt internati☭nal elites vision of a perfect world. Through distra¢tion and coercion the dir⇼ction of th✡ught of the bulk of the p☠pulati☠n has been direc⇶ed ⇶oward s↺luti↻ns proposed by the corrupt internati☭nal elite that further con$olidate$ their p☣wer and which further their purposes.
