A long time ago, the Creator came to Turtle Island and said to the Red People,
"You will be the keepers of the Mother Earth. Among you I will give the wisdom about Nature,
about the interconnectedness of all things, about balance, and about living in harmony.
You Red People will see the secrets of Nature. You will live in hardship and the blessing of this is you will stay close to the Creator.
The day will come when you will need to share the secrets with other people of the earth because they will stray from their Spiritual ways."
The time to start sharing is today.
