Privilege creates and sustains
an illusion of undeserved moral convenience, an amnesia of compassion,
a pathological imperception
that prevents us from
recognizing the deep need
for fighting injustice every day
in every way possible.
Indigeny and Energetics is a redefinition of the historical process of the development of the sacred human relationship to land and nature. This relationship is universal, a global naturo-spiritual dynamic with social, political, technological and environmental ramifications. Application of these concepts redefines the primacy and importance of the indigenous human experience and projects a positive human developmental outcome that cannot take place without this redefinition.
|The buffalo was (and is) a central spiritual and material Relation|
for the Turtle Island Plains Nations before the onslaught of
European settler-colonialism. In the word of Daniel Quinn
("Ishmael"), European "taker" values decimated buffalo
populations out of genocidal intent and greed.
|The buffalo popluations are rebounding due to the work and spiritual |
guidance of the Native nations along with the help of European settler
conservationists and activists. The spirit of abundance can and does live
again on Turtle Island despite the continuing dominance and
exploitation of colonialism and capitalism.
"Once I was in Victoria and I saw a very large house. They told me it was a bank and that the white men place their money there to be taken care of, and that by and by they got it back with interest.
We are Indians and we have no such bank; but when we have plenty of money or blankets, we give them away to other chiefs and people, by and by they return them with interest, and our hearts feel good.
Our way of giving is our bank." - attributed to Chief Maquinna, as posted by 'The Great Spirit' (facebook)
|Nuclear power generation and|
the compulsory toxic waste
that comes with it makes as
much sense as the human
colonization of space.
Interesting how much the "intelligent" modern citizen of privileged industrial, colonial corporatocratic countries can know about the terminal mistake of fossil fuel dependence and use and not feel behooved to actually live like they are in possession of said intelligence. One could surmise that modernity does not give rise to intelligence at all, that it does its best work at creating veneers for terminal ideological and socio-political pathologies.
Case in point - even a grade school textbook will reveal how important trees are to the life of humans on the earth, but the modern system of cultural production behaves as though trees are simply a commodity that can be exploited at the whims of the corporate capitalist "imperative", that they are not indeed and in deed one of our most precious family members amongst All Our Relations, gifting us with oxygen, substantively and daily and beautifully while sustained symbiotically by the very gasses we expirate from our very lungs - suggesting a relation-ship that we'd do well to acknowledge and deepen - again.
"This is truly equivalent to Germany having a “Hitler Day” which is a national holiday where we’re all supposed to laud him as the “Great Conquerer” or something, with statues of him erected all over the country. This country is INSANE. Because it’s a part of the dominant culture, industrial civilization, which is killing the planet and wiping out vast, unfathomable numbers of nonhuman species and human indigenous cultures. It must be stopped."
