PROTECTING THE SACRED
As Oren Lyons, Faithkeeper of the Onondaga Nation says, these traditional ways are “important because everything is so unstable. The more we can rely on the original instructions, the better.”
These “original instructions” place natural laws above manmade laws. We are reminded that with rights come responsibilities. By creating these reciprocal relationships, we can connect to a deeper understanding of what Indigenous Peoples have known for thousands of years: Mother Earth is the source, not just a resource. She is alive and we are a part of her.
This intrinsic connection allows for a holistic approach to living and being in relationship to all things. In renewing our relationship with the living world, we begin to deepen our understanding of the urgent responsibility we have as caretakers for future generations.
