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 own 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 very important 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 reflection of the continued injustices 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, 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 in 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 ways continue all over the world, we will witness many more extinct animal, plant, and human nations, because of mankind's misuse of power and their lack of understanding of the "balance of life."

The Indigenous people warn that these destructive developments will cause havoc globally. There are many, many more indigenous 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.

Our Ancestors foretold that water would someday be for sale. Back then this was hard to believe, since the water was so plentiful, so pure, and so full of energy, nutrition and spirit. Today we have to buy pure water, and even then the nutritional minerals have been taken out; it's just empty liquid. Someday water will be like gold, too expensive to afford.

In our prophecies it is told that we are now at the crossroads: Either unite spiritually as a global nation.

We are the only species that is destroying the source of life, meaning Mother Earth.

I ask you to join me on 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 Sites to pray and meditate and commune with one another, thus promoting an energy shift to heal our Mother Earth and achieve a universal consciousness toward attaining Peace.

As each day passes, I ask all nations to begin a global effort, and remember to give thanks for the sacred food that has been gifted to us by our Mother Earth, so the nutritional energy of medicine can be guided to heal our minds and spirits.

To us, as caretakers of the heart of Mother Earth.

On your decision depends the fate of the entire World.

Each of us is put here in this time and this place to personally decide the future of humankind.

Know that you yourself are essential to this world. Understand both the blessing and the burden of that. You yourself are desperately needed to save the soul of this world. Did you think you were put here for something less? In a Sacred Hoop of Life, there is no beginning and no ending.

    Thank for this prayer, I know that all the people on this earth at this time need to also say their prayer for the healing of the earth and the knowing that we are all the same, all have the light of life in us. We must understand that the whole universe is sacred. We must treat everything and every living thing in a healing way.

    I read the entire editorial and find it to be very necessary for EVERYONE to read.We have not much time,only Creator knows that.We must devise other ways to deal with the wasichu .Peaceful protests are not even being touched to the whites ears or their eyes are impaired to the living conditions of most of our people.Mother Earth is rapidly losing her patience with the stupidity and greediness of the whites.Do they not relize that what they are doing with Mother nature and Earth is not only killing our people but killing them(the whites )also? We must speak louder and make our voices heard and we MUST take stricter action to prevent bodily harm to our people at these peaceful protests.Someone asked me if I was afraid to be killed shot or otherwise.I answered them truthfully"Hasn't Mother Earth done the same for us?Grew plants for medicine,trees for firewood for heat in the winter,animals of all species to hunt for food,and gave us the 'heads up' to watch how animals hunt for food,how to build shelters for themselves even taught us how to tell poison water ponds or streams from good fresh water.Hell,The drinking water we partake in has enough chemicals in it to start up another Las Alamos in New mexico. I will stand by K Looking Horse all the way to the end.500+years od genocide and neglecting our needs b/c they come first.First our land then breaking all treaties(Treaty at Fort Laramie was the payoff),then driving away our food supplies to build homes.Drilling for,whatelse oil,and gold which has poisoned the water on the Navajo Arizona.For what...The almighty dollar.
