Called before the Elders

All peoples of the world come from one tribe and worship the same Great Spirit. Time and distance has made the people forget.

I was called before the Tribal Elders last night in the space between dreams and awake.  I was not tall enough to see their faces, their spirits were so large.  They stood in a circle before me with many colors and native dress.  

They wanted to know what I was going to do with their sacred stories.  All of yesterday I spent my sabbath day of rest gathering Native American stories, messages to the world, prophecies, and legends.   Some of these things were shared on websites that are no longer in existence.  I used the wayback machine to read broken links and preserve things into this website that had been lost.

Remembering it now, I did not think to feel guilty at their inquiry.  Rather I told them that Maasaw came to me many moons ago and showed me that all peoples of the world come from one tribe and worship the same Great Spirit.  Time and distance has made the people forget. 

It was only my desire to teach all people that truth is one, and the truth of the Native American tribes must be included in order for there to be a complete whole.  They were satisfied with my answer and gave me permission to continue.

Grandmother Cisi would look at me with her obsidian eyes piercing my soul when she spoke of the Whirling Rainbow Prophecy, and I would feel my heart skip a beat and then fill with promise and love.

The Walam Olum

A sequence of pictographs which give the epic of the Delawares, a tribe which lived in the central Eastern seaboard; this remains one of the lasting mysteries of Native American literature.
