Indigenous Elders and Medicine Peoples Council Statement on Fukushima

Thank you, Ann, for posting this. I have wondered when the Indigenous Elders and Medicine People would start sounding louder alarms about Fukushima. Privately, I’ve been telling friends, “We are at ‘evolve or die’ time.” The first person who taught me Runes had many friends among Native American Elders, and he was fond of their saying, “The Law is the Law.” I hear echoes of that in the Council Statement below about “Original Instructions.” In context of reports of a strange comet-planet, Fukushima, the BP Oil “Spill” and all the other environmental atrocities that have just become everyday life, par for the course, this statement reminds me again of the Blue and Red Star Kachina Prophecies that those who return to the Old Ways and honor the Earth will be spared the cleanse.

Something’s gotta give. Contrary to most people’s comfortable belief: Earth does not require humanity for her own transmutation. May the Shift Hit The Fan. And soon.

Council Statement

This statement reflects the wisdom of the Spiritual People of the Earth, of North and South America, working in unity to restore peace, harmony and balance for our collective future and for all living beings. This statement is written in black and white with a foreign language that is not our own and does not convey the full depth of our concerns.

The Creator created the People of the Earth into the Land at the beginning of
Creation and gave us a way of life. This way of life has been passed down
generation-to-generation since the beginning. We have not honored this way of
life through our own actions and we must live these original instructions in order
to restore universal balance and harmony. We are a part of Creation;
thus, if we break the Laws of Creation, we destroy ourselves.

We, the Original Caretakers of Mother Earth, have no choice but to follow and uphold
the Original Instructions, which sustains the continuity of Life. We recognize our
umbilical connection to Mother Earth and understand that she is the source of life, not a
resource to be exploited. We speak on behalf of all Creation today, to communicate an
urgent message that man has gone too far, placing us in the state of survival. We warned
that one day you would not be able to control what you have created. That day is here.
Not heeding warnings from both Nature and the People of the Earth keeps us on the path
of self destruction. This self destructive path has led to the Fukushima nuclear crisis, Gulf
oil spill, tar sands devastation, pipeline failures, impacts of carbon dioxide emissions and
the destruction of ground water through hydraulic fracking, just to name a few. In
addition, these activities and development continue to cause the deterioration and
destruction of sacred places and sacred waters that are vital for Life.

Powerful technologies are out of control and are threatening the future of all life

The Fukushima nuclear crisis alone is a threat to the future of humanity. Yet, our concern
goes far beyond this single threat. Our concern is with the cumulative and
compounding devastation that is being wrought by the actions of human beings around
the world. It is the combination of resource extraction, genetically modified organisms,
moral failures, pollution, introduction of invasive species and much much more that are
threatening the future of life on Earth. The compounding of bad decisions and their
corresponding actions are extremely short-sighted. They do not consider the future
generations and they do not respect or honor the Creator’s Natural Law. We strongly
urge for the governmental authorities to respond with an open invitation to work and
consult with us to solve the world’s problems, without war. We must stop waging war
against Mother Earth, and ourselves.

We acknowledge that all of these devastating actions originated in human beings who are
living without regard for the Earth as the source of life. They have strayed from the
Original Instructions by casting aside the Creator’s Natural Law. It is now critical for
humanity to acknowledge that we have created a path to self destruction. We must restore
the Original Instructions in our lives to halt this devastation.

The sanctity of the Original Instructions has been violated. As a result, the Spiritual
People of the Earth were called ceremonially to come together at the home of the Sacred
White Buffalo Calf Pipe Bundle. These Spiritual Leaders and those that carry great
responsibility for their people from both North and South America came together with the
sacred fire for four days at the end of September 2013 to fulfill their sacred
responsibilities. During this time it was revealed that the spirit of destruction gained its’
strength by our spiritually disconnected actions. We are all responsible in varying
degrees for calling forth this spirit of destruction, thus we are all bound to begin
restoring what we have damaged by helping one another recover our sacred
responsibility to the Earth. We, the Original Caretakers of Mother Earth, offer our
spiritual insight, wisdom and vision to the global community to help guide the actions
needed to overcome the current threats to all life.

We only have to look at our own bodies to recognize the sacred purpose
of water on Mother Earth. We respect and honor our spiritual relationship
with the lifeblood of Mother Earth. One does not sell or contaminate their
mother’s blood. These capitalistic actions must stop and we must recover
our sacred relationship with the Spirit of Water.

The People of the Earth understand that the Fukushima nuclear crisis continues to
threaten the future of all life. We understand the full implications of this crisis even with
the suppression of information and the filtering of truth by the corporate owned media
and Nation States. We strongly urge the media, corporations and Nation States to
acknowledge and convey the true facts that threaten us, so that the international
community may work together to resolve this crisis, based on the foundation of Truth.
We urge the international community, government of Japan and TEPCO to unify efforts
to stabilize and re-mediate the nuclear threat posed at the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear
power plant. To ensure that the Japanese government and TEPCO are supported with
qualified personnel and information, we urge the inclusion of today’s nuclear experts
from around the world to collaborate, advise and provide technical assistance to prevent
further radioactive contamination or worse, a nuclear explosion that may have
apocalyptic consequences.

The foundation for peace will be strengthened by restoring the Original Instructions in ourselves

Prophecies have been shared and sacred instructions were given. We, the People of the
Earth, were instructed that the original wisdom must be shared again when imbalance
and disharmony are upon Mother Earth. In 1994 the sacred white buffalo, the giver of
the sacred pipe, returned to the Lakota, Dakota and Nakota people bringing forth the
sacred message that the winds of change are here. Since that time many more
messengers in the form of white animals have come, telling us to wake up my children. It
is time. So listen for the sacred instruction.

All Life is sacred. We come into Life as sacred beings. When we abuse the
sacredness of Life we affect all Creation.

We urge all Nations and human beings around the world to work with us, the Original
Caretakers of Mother Earth, to restore the Original Instructions and uphold the
Creator’s Natural Law as a foundation for all decision making, from this point forward.
Our collective future as human beings is in our hands, we must address the Fukushima
nuclear crisis and all actions that may violate the Creator’s Natural Law. We have
reached the crossroads of life and the end of our existence. We will avert this potentially
catastrophic nuclear disaster by coming together with good minds and prayer as a global
community of all faiths.

We are the People of the Earth united under the Creator’s Law with a sacred covenant to
protect and a responsibility to extend Life for all future generations. We are expressing
deep concern for our shared future and urge everyone to awaken spiritually. We must
work in unity to help Mother Earth heal so that she can bring back balance and harmony
for all her children.

  1. Thank you Laura. This has been weighing heavily on my thought for a few weeks now. I’m so glad to see this posting. I’ve been asking myself a series of questions regarding this…why are we so apathetic about this? Do we really think if we ignore it, it will be okay? Do we think that what can I do as one person, how can I make a difference as just one? Or just the opposite, I don’t believe I can make a difference as one, and this is too terrible and frightening an idea to look at or fathom, so it’s easier not to look at it? We are being told right here what we can do, there is still time, and what will happen if we don’t do anything. What more do we need to move forward? Do we need to raise our voices to the roof top of every government in the world as their people to tell them how important this is to us, and that we do know what is happening despite them not acknowledging this.

    It’s more incomprehensible if we do nothing than if we start to make changes. I will be rebloging and sharing this on FB.

    Thank you dear Laura.



  2. Thanks, Dawn! I don’t have the answers to all of those questions, but we each need to do our part to help the Earth, whatever that is. I know Fukushima can be fixed if some people step up soon with the solutions. Mushrooms? Not sure. In the meantime, there are some books on the Original Instructions. I may get one or two of them. Can’t hurt!



  3. Reblogged this on Reiki Dawn and commented:
    I feel this article and Statement on Fukushima by the Indigenous Elders and Medicine Peoples Council Statement is extremely important, so much so that I want to share this from Laura Bruno’s blog.



  4. Thanks Laura, it really is about taking action now and not just talking about it. I had heard something about mushrooms myself…don’t quite remember it all but I hope the people do step up soon. I’ve started reading Navigating the Coming Chaos that you recommended as well. After your comment about books on the Original Instructions, I will look into that as well. I sure appreciate the fact that you bring these items to our awareness. Hugs Dawn.



  5. Yes, thanks, I thought I had seen a plan by him way back when it would have made sense to clean things up! I’ll work on some behind the scenes stuff and see what comes up. I don’t even know where to start on this, but I’m surprised people on the West Coast aren’t all over their cities and states to get on this. Fukushima affects us all, but in particular, if you’re West of the mountains.



  6. Both of my kids and grandkids live on the west coast. I tried speaking to them about this a couple of times. I don’t think they get it or don’t won’t to. I think it’s hard to wrap their brain around. So many things are trying to grab our attention, true and untrue I think they just don’t know what to believe any more…or do believe any of it and see it as hype. Not sure if I can reach them, all I can do is keep trying.



    • Denial and cognitive dissonance are more common than not these days. If they weren’t, we wouldn’t be in the various dire situations we find ourselves in now, would we? Thanks for your loving heart! xo

    THANK YOU SO MUCH for this post…..I have been feeling powerless and this is an answer to a prayer. I have contacted Faith Spotted Eagle for assistance in gathering support of the Native American peoples her on the Olympic Peninsula in WA State. Our shores have and will continue to be affected by the Fukushima disaster.
