The Call For Righteouness! Has It Been Answered?
developed by all people using their purest most unselfish minds."
--Lorraine Canoe/Tom Porter, MOHAWK
"The Native way is to first focus on decisions that will be good for the people and then for yourself. Righteousness means "to think right." Our way is to consider the good of all first. This helps our minds to be unselfish and pure. This is the spiritual way.
"This can be very hard to do because the world we live in says to take care of yourself first. A man of God cannot be taken advantage of unless it is the will of the Creator. The Creator really controls everything. To have a good future, the people must gather in a circle and pray for highest good for the people. "
I had begun to fear I would never witness the concept of “Native Righteousness” in my lifetime, but I believe it has come to pass through the people who inhabit the Indian Ocean area with the horror of the recent tsunami which has made the peoples of the world open their hearts, minds and pocketbooks to the survivors of this terrible tragedy to help them rebuild their shattered lives.
I feel in my heart the Great Circle has been created as a result of this brutal devastation and prayers are being said in every religious faith on our earth for the highest good of the people.
I’m not certain how long this aura of good will toward man will last, but I know the reason for the Circle will never be forgotten. - bobbie
