I have been given the honor and privilege to serve as a delegate to the United Nations (UN) standing with a vision of a world where people of all faiths, traditions and colors can come together with mutual respect and where the words of the traditional wisdom keepers of the Earth can be heard and appreciated. For those of you whom are unfamiliar with the purpose of the United Nations, it is an international organization founded in 1945 after the Second World War by 51 countries committed to maintaining international peace and security, developing friendly relations among nations and promoting social progress, better living standards and human rights. The UN is committed to creating forums for the dissemination of information on Earth awareness, indigenous cultures, technology, as well as personal and planetary transformation. As a member of the United Nations, I will assist in bringing the voice of the indigenous representatives to the UN by facilitating and uniting ancient wisdom with contemporary life. It is with tremendous gratitude that I accepted this wondrous opportunity to be of service to the world and its people.
The Doctrine of Discovery: its enduring impact on indigenous peoples and the right to redress for past conquests (articles 28 and 37 of the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples).
Genocide of indigenous peoples continues around the world. The information presented in the various session was sobering. I continue to pray and reflect on the best way to serve God in this capacity.
