Indigenous Native American Prophecy (Elders Speak part 3)

Part 3 of this 5 part series 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 video Chief Oren Lyons talks about the need for moral leadership in the world of business.

“When you say resources, you’re talking about our relatives, talking about our family. Fish are our family, it’s not a resource – it’s a family. It requires all the respect. The structure of the world itself is such [that] it functions on natural law, and the natural law is a powerful regenerative process. There’s a process of regeneration that continues and grows and is endless. It’s absolutely endless if everyone agrees to the law and follows the law. But if you challenge the law, and you think you’re going to change the law, then you’re bound to failure, and in that failure will be a lot of pain because the natural law has no mercy. It is only the law.” - Chief Oren Lyons
