Indigenous Native American Prophecy (Elders Speak part 5)

The final video of this 5 part series features a woman elder whose name we currently do not know. If you know this woman, please email us so that we can give her proper credit. It also features Chief Joagquisho (Oren Lyons), Faithkeeper of the Turtle Clan of the Onondaga Nation, and a Chief of the Onondaga Nation Council of Chiefs of the Six Nations of the Iroquois Confederacy, the Haudenosaunee or "People of the Long House."

In this segment a woman elder and Chief Oren Lyons talk about how the Earth and all life on it is interrelated in a system of “give and take.” If we wish to survive, we must respect this fact and restore the ecosystems we have disrupted to their original state of balance and harmony.

“Peace is an everyday fight. It’s something that goes on all the time. We believe that we are ourselves one half the negative and one half the positive, and it’s the balance that’s important – all the time to keep the balance.” – Chief Oren Lyons, Onondaga
