…a Message from Chief Arvol Looking Horse

 

I, Chief Arvol Looking Horse, of the Lakota, Dakota, and Nakota Nations, ask you to understand an Indigenous perspective on what has happened in America, what we call “Turtle Island.” My words seek to unite the global community through a message from our sacred ceremonies to unite spiritually, each in our ways of beliefs in the Creator.

We have been warned from ancient prophecies of these times we live in today, but have also been given a vital message about a solution to turn these terrible times.

To understand the depth of this message, you must recognize the importance of Sacred Sites and realize the interconnectedness of what is happening today, in the reflection of the continued massacres that are occurring on other lands and our own Americas.

I have been learning about these important issues since the age of 12 when I received the Sacred White Buffalo Calf Pipe Bundle and its teachings. Our people have strived to protect Sacred Sites from the beginning of time. These places have been violated for centuries and have brought us to the predicament that we are in at the global level.

Look around you. Our Mother Earth is very ill from these violations, and we are on the brink of destroying the possibility of a healthy and nurturing survival for generations to come, our children’s children.

Our ancestors have been trying to protect our Sacred Site called the Sacred Black Hills of South Dakota, “Heart of Everything That Is,” from continued violations. Our ancestors never saw a satellite view of this site, but now that those pictures are available, we see that it is in the shape of a heart and, when fast-forwarded, it looks like a heart pumping.

The Diné have been protecting Big Mountain, calling it the liver of the earth, and we are suffering and going to suffer more from the extraction of the coal there and the poisoning processes used in doing so.

The Aborigines have warned of the contaminating effects of global warming on the Coral Reefs, which they see as Mother Earth’s blood purifier.

The indigenous people of the rainforest say that the rainforests are the lungs of the planet and need protection.

The Gwich’in Nation in Alaska has had to face oil drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge coastal plain, also known to the Gwich’in as “Where life begins.”

The coastal plain is the birthplace of many life forms of the animal nations. The death of these animal nations will destroy indigenous nations in this territory.

As these destructive developments continue all over the world, we will witness much more extinct animal, plant, and human nations, because of humankind’s misuse of power and their lack of understanding of the “balance of life.”

The Indigenous people warn that these negative developments will cause havoc globally. There are many, many more original teachings and knowledge about Mother Earth’s Sacred Sites, her chakras, and connections to our spirit that will surely affect our future generations.

There needs to be a fast move toward other forms of energy that are safe for all Nations upon Mother Earth. We need to understand the types of minds that are continuing to destroy the spirit of our whole global community. Unless we do this, the powers of destruction will overwhelm us.

Our Ancestors foretold that water would someday be for sale. This Prophecy was hard to believe! The water was plentiful, pure, full of energy, nutrition, and spirit. Today we have to buy clean water, and even then the nutritional minerals have been taken out; it’s just clear liquid. Someday water will be like gold, too expensive to afford.

Not everyone will have the right to drink safe water. We fail to appreciate and honor our Sacred Sites, ripping out the minerals and gifts that lay underneath them as if Mother Earth were simply a resource, instead of the source of life itself.

Attacking nations and using more resources to carry out destruction in the name of peace is not the answer! We need to understand how all these decisions affect the global nation; we will not be immune to its repercussions. Allowing continual contamination of our food and land is affecting the way we think.

A “disease of the mind” has set in world leaders and many members of our global community, with their belief that a solution of retaliation and destruction of peoples will bring peace.

In our Prophecies it is told that we are now at the crossroads: Either unite spiritually as a global nation or faced with chaos, disasters, diseases, and tears from our relatives’ eyes.

We are the only species that is destroying the source of life, meaning Mother Earth, in the name of power, mineral resources, and ownership of land. Using chemicals and methods of warfare that are doing irreversible damage, as Mother Earth is becoming tired and cannot sustain any more impacts of war.

I ask you to join me in this endeavor. Our vision is for the peoples of all continents, regardless of their beliefs in the Creator, to come together as one at their Sacred Site.

“We are in great danger”: In Amazon, indigenous Waiapi chief is killed by illegal (gold) miners

“They’re paying with their lives,” a human rights activist says about indigenous groups trying to protect the rainforest from mining and agribusiness.
Currently, there at least 10,000 (gold) miners illegally occupying and exploiting Brazil’s indigenous Yanomami land in northern Brazil.  These sorts of invasions have increased by 150 percent since Brazil’s right-wing president, Jair Bolsonaro, took power earlier this year, according to a report published in April by Amazon Watch, an indigenous rights and rainforest conservation advocacy group.
via Peru, the largest gold producer in Latin America and the sixth largest in the world, has long struggled with illegal gold mining.

sad news… I was notified my Glaciologist friend Dr. Dick Cameron passed on July 21.  We were planning his first book of his prose and poetry this fall.  He’d just turned 89 on July 11 and was visiting a close colleague in WA state.  Right to the end, he was writing poetry, bless his heart.  He will be greatly missed… I send my deepest sympathy to his family.  (I still plan to work on Dick’s book(s)…)

“Humanity right now is entering into what I see as an initiation, an ordeal that will bring us to another level of our evolution. What is being offered to us is a completely different relationship to the rest of life on Earth. The planetary crisis that we call climate change is meant to bring us to that realisation, to bring us to that relationship of love because the losses that we’re seeing are connecting us with the reality of this living being here…. this new and ancient relationship to the rest of life.” ~ Charles Eisenstein

I want to share this story by Charles Eisenstein: Every Act is a Ceremony.  I can’t stop thinking about it and I read it a few months ago.

He also made this amazing video… A New Story of Climate Change: New Frontiers (2018) VIDEO

Blessing to everyone… and thanks for reading this blog 🙂

  1. The lust for gold has tarnished the history of mankind, and continues to do so to this day.
    As for water, that will undoubtedly be the cause of most future wars.
    Timely, as well as very important messages.
    Thanks, Lara.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  2. Mni Wiconi. Water is Life.
    Chief Looking Horse does not call the evil going on as satanic, but I do. They are determined to destroy every living thing on Earth.

  3. Satan is embodied in people seeking wealth. Those seeking wealth do not understand that wealth is a human construct, and they mistake taking minerals, killing animals and violating sacred sites as obtaining wealth. It is not. It is simply killing the source of life in Mother Earth. Warmest regards, Ed

  4. Essential post by your conscience, discernment about the life of yesterday was already distresse and today is chaos and do not know if there will be a tomorrow. I have a book with indigenous accounts, a kind of “voice of the losers”-I do not remember the name or the author-who warned about the genocide of the indigenous nations and its consequences. Here in Brazil, unfortunately, there is a vision that leads to the destruction of native peoples and areas with the Amazon being explored. Good to read posts that lead us even more to think about life and our living.

    1. Brazil is in our news every day Chronosfer2. The uncontacted tribes in Brazil are in serious danger, just like it was here. So glad you came to visit my blog. ❤

  5. Sadder yet, the return to a gold standard as the “cursed” Franklin (dollar) fails globally will mean that gold will leap up in value as gold standard nations increase their false (gold) reserves. Man’s madness is spreading everywhere as the patriarchal hierarchic system implodes from its own inner corruption. Civilization, that is “Man,” has passed the point of no return. I don’t know where the crossroads was (were?) but it has passed us by hardly noticed but for the few and now as Mu or Atlantis or Camelot, forever lost. Now we go forward, pushed by our ignorance and greed into a planet-choking maelstrom of our own making. Not many will survive and those few will be those who choose to totally repudiate every aspect of “Man’s” current un-civilization.

      1. Ah… I gave up prayer decades ago when I realized no one was listening and certainly not answering any of my questions. We have entered “Gotterdamerung” or “Ragnarok” loosely translated to English as “Twilight of the Gods.” It will seem strange or ‘out there’ to some but Earth does not “die” alone – the whole cosmos is involved in our nightmare and most Earthians have no idea what they are caught in. The “gods” are too busy trying to stem the flames of rebellion to pay any attention to one small planet caught in their own madness.

          1. Want some synchronicity? I published a book for my friend John C Hopkins with the title Twilight of the Gods and I am familiar with Ragnarok. Wow, thank you for bringing this to light.

            1. All I know is that I cannot stop fighting against this evil. And prayer is how I do it. I just ask to get the information I need to know who is feeding the evil and who is feeding the good. And eventually I am shown what I need to know. So I do know that Someone is listening and assisting us.

            2. If it works, why not use it? It never worked for me so I took a different path and I got the answers I was looking for. Are they the “right” answers? If they complement my purpose and passion, which is to be an avatar of compassion, then they are the correct answers. I suppose I should say that I’m not looking for information but for personal, or self, empowerment to accomplish those things I have determined to do for myself. I think that whatever reveals itself as true to us, to ‘me’ as individuals is what we go with. Does any of that make sense even??? 🙂

            3. Yes we have to go with our own truth and our own instincts. I truly believe the Creator gave that to us as a way to know when something is bad for us and to avoid it, even though at the time, it doesn’t make sense to us. And maybe your truth is not believing in a Creator. I did not believe in God, the Creator when I was in a rough patch, unknowingly surrounded by satanists, but yet I was still protected. So I think the Creator knows what is in your heart.

              The Native folks call this life The Great Mystery. I like that because there is nothing attached to it.

            4. I suppose this synchronicity comes from cosmic interconnectedness. I don’t even question it, nor does it surprise me anymore – happens all the time now and it tells me that, like yourself, I’m “connected” to “all that is.” To be in the right place at the right time isn’t luck, it’s a choice we make, even if subconsciously… well, that’s my opinion.

  7. To answer the Chief’s question, the ones thinking all this bad behavior on the earth is ok are the ones funding the rocket ships to Mars…won’t it be funny when the rest of us volunteer to pay if they just go?

  8. may these prophesies awaken
    and inspire actions of resilience and connection, Lara!
    sad how indigenous people continue to suffer & die
    from the greed & ignorance of others.
    may your day be peaceful 🙂

  9. Lara, I have had a couple of mildly ‘confrontational’ comments on today’s post. I have tried to address them firmly but politely, but feel free to reply to them yourself, if you think it’s worthwhile.
    Best wishes, Pete.

    1. I read them and decided my answer would take way too much time and space. But you did good Pete. Very good! I’m guessing they need more than a history lesson.

  10. Everything points to this being a crucial time for us. If we continue on our current path, in 50 years the Earth might not be recognizable to us at all. If we want to change our fate, our time to act seems very limited indeed.

    1. Here is one place to get ideas: Project Drawdown, the research and communication organization behind the book, helpfully lists the solutions in order of most impactful to least on its website: drawdown.org. Household recycling, which we’ve been led to believe for decades is our individual way to contribute to improving the environment, is number 55 out of 80. Composting is number 60.
