A GREAT URGENCY
SOMETIMES, IT IS NOT ABOUT PUBLISHING OR BOOKS, IT'S ABOUT:
A Great Urgency
To All World Religious and Spiritual Leaders
Time has come to speak to the hearts of our Nations and their Leaders. I
ask you this from the bottom of my heart, to come together from the Spirit
of your Nations in prayer.
We, from the heart of Turtle Island, have a great message for the World; we
are guided to speak from all the White Animals showing their sacred color,
which have been signs for us to pray for the sacred life of all things. As
I am sending this message to you, many Animal Nations are being threatened,
those that swim, those that crawl, those that fly, and the plant Nations,
eventually all will be affect from the oil disaster in the Gulf.
The dangers we are faced with at this time are not of spirit. The
catastrophe that has happened with the oil spill which looks like the
bleeding of Grandmother Earth, is made by human mistakes, mistakes that we
cannot afford to continue to make.
I asked, as Spiritual Leaders, that we join together, united in prayer with
the whole of our Global Communities. My concern is these serious issues will
continue to worsen, as a domino effect that our Ancestors have warned us of
in their Prophecies.
I know in my heart there are millions of people that feel our united prayers
for the sake of our Grandmother Earth are long overdue. I believe we as
Spiritual people must gather ourselves and focus our thoughts and prayers to
allow the healing of the many wounds that have been inflicted on the Earth.
As we honor the Cycle of Life, let us call for Prayer circles globally to
assist in healing Grandmother Earth (our UncąI Maka).
We ask for prayers that the oil spill, this bleeding, will stop. That the
winds stay calm to assist in the work. Pray for the people to be guided in
repairing this mistake, and that we may also seek to live in harmony, as we
make the choice to change the destructive path we are on.
As we pray, we will fully understand that we are all connected. And that
what we create can have lasting effects on all life.
So let us unite spiritually, All Nations, All Faiths, One Prayer. Along
with this immediate effort, I also ask to please remember June 21st, World
Peace and Prayer Day/Honoring Sacred Sites day. Whether it is a natural
site, a temple, a church, a synagogue or just your own sacred space, let us
make a prayer for all life, for good decision making by our Nations, for our
childrenąs future and well-being, and the generations to come.

Whether it is a Temple, Church Congregation, religious organization or
Mosques, if people are gathering in communities, openly upon the earth or
Sacred Sites, please note that proper protocols of Indigenous representation
for any particular ceremonial activity should be done. An Indigenous
Traditional representative should be present to run their particular
If desired; we as First Nation People are willing to share the sacred fire
and offering of tobacco with prayers in a united effort. We feel that all
that is needed to gather is: to have people bring a gift of food to share,
as a pot luck and their energy of concerned prayers. This is also the safest
and most respectful way to treat Indigenous Traditional values and concerns
of proper protocol. (Wolakota sponsored WPPD events have always only used
the fire and tobacco circles for the united effort of prayers.)
Out of respect for Sacred Ceremonies to not be advertised on the internet,
if you are listing a traditional ceremonial rites of a particular
Indigenious Nation, we only will post a general location of where people are
Any extra financial needs can be raised through grass root funding. We
highly stress that no major grant writing should be done. This should be an
opportunity to empower the people's desire to come together to pray for
Grandmother Earth. (*note: if you are aware of this boundary of respect
being crossed, please contact the webmaster of this site.)

of our Grandmother Earth and her Sacred Sites.
