The Guna First Nation is composed of 51 communities stretched across 350 Islands in a territory 232 miles long and 130 square miles. The Guna First Nation is governed by two General Congresses. One General Congress takes care of all political and economic issues and the other General Congress cares for all spiritual and cultural issues.
The Guna First Nation declared their freedom from Panamanian Colonial rule on February 25, 1925. The Guna First Nation has continued to retain their language, culture, spirituality and autonomy since that time. The ancient Indigenous symbol on the Guna First Nation flag, sometimes called the "Circle of Life" or the "Whirling Logs", is found in Indigenous Nations across the Americas, including the Hopi and Yakima Nations in North America. The “Circle…Continue
I give my heartfelt thanks giving to our Beloved Creator, that I can say at 70, as my beloved father always told me, “Son we are only here for a short time!" Or like Crow Foot said, "Life is like the breath of a Buffalo on a cold day or a fire fly on a warm summer day or the shadows vanishing before the setting sun!" Then we travel to other planes of existence as different from this physical world as this physical world is different from the womb world in which we were conceived! When we leave behind our "Earth Suit" we only take with us those spiritual qualities that we have developed on our spiritual journey in this physical world.
It is my experience and understanding that these spiritual qualities are primarily manifested through our…Continue

“The New Global Civilization, now unfolding, that the Prophecies of Indigenous Peoples and the Ancient of Days have long envisioned is not to be confused, even remotely, with the various new world orders that are fearfully alluded to by various contending sources. This includes a new world order where the extremely wealthy or a secret elite enslave most of humanity for their own selfish and greedy purposes, or a new world order where everyone is forced to look, act and think the same, or a new world order dominated by any one nation state or a new world order created by an Anti-Christ prior to an Armageddon.
These Indigenous prophecies include the Mayan, the Reunion of the Condor and the Eagle, the Eighth Council Fire, the Return of the White…Continue
Prior to the arrival of the first European explorers an Indigenous kinship network based in spiritual and cultural relationships and protocols existed for centuries across the Western Hemisphere. Through this network of many networks, this Hoop of Many Hoops, Indigenous Peoples shared knowledge, capacity and resources for mutual aid, trade and development. This ancient network, based in life-preserving and life enhancing spiritual values and principles, known by many Indigenous Peoples across the Hemisphere as the Union of the Condor and Eagle, was shattered by European colonization and the subsequent decimation of Indigenous Nations and Peoples across the Americas.
The Four Worlds Guiding Principles for Building a Sustainable and Harmonious World
The Sixteen Principles for building a sustainable and harmonious world community emerged from a 40-year process of reflection, consultation and action within Indigenous communities across the Americas. They are rooted in the concerns of hundreds of Indigenous Elders Spiritual Leaders and Community Members, as well as in the best thinking of many non- Indigenous scholars, researchers and human and community development practitioners.
These guiding principles constitute the foundation for the process of healing and developing ourselves (mentally, emotionally, physically, and spiritually), our human relationships (personal, social, political,…
