Gathering of the Tribes

Manifesto & Prayer

Embracing Nature, Spirit & Community


In the depths of our souls, we hear the ancestral call, resonating through time, inviting us to gather as one. We, the tribes of the Earth, unite with a shared purpose—to rekindle the flames of ancient wisdom and create a path towards harmony with nature. With reverence for the sacredness of life, we come together, guided by indigenous wisdom and the understanding that we are all interconnected. In this gathering, we celebrate our diversity and seek to create community – where love, respect, and reciprocity are the foundations upon which we build our lives and relationships.

Drawing from the wellspring of indigenous wisdom, we remember the old ways, the sacred ways, the ways that honor Mother Earth. We embrace the teachings of our ancestors—their deep connection to the land, their reverence for all beings, and their unwavering commitment to live in right relation. Through this remembrance, we gather to heal the wounds imposed upon the Earth, and restore the balance that has been disrupted by modern society and unconscious ways of living. We also embrace the emergence and evolution of earth-informed technology that is consciously used to support the health and wellbeing of the planet, bringing harmony to ancient and modern ways of life. Together, we embody the spirit of caretakers, guardians, and stewards of this precious planet we call home.

We live with awareness of the seven generations philosophy, recognizing that our actions today ripple through time, affecting not only the present but also the well-being of generations to come. We choose to live in a way that ensures a healthy, thriving planet for future generations to enjoy.

In our communities, we plant seeds of self-sufficiency, cultivating the land with tenderness and care. We harmonize with nature’s rhythms, nurturing the soil to yield abundant harvests and sustain our bodies. We construct beautiful homes using natural materials, blending seamlessly into the landscape, and treading gently upon the Earth. Music echoes through our gatherings, stirring our souls and reminding us of the profound beauty that surrounds us. In this moment, we honor life itself, offering gratitude for the abundance that is present. 

As we gather, we radiate a beacon of hope, inspiring the human species to embrace a new way of living. Our intention reverberates far beyond our community, rippling outwards, and awakening the dormant spirit within others. We envision a world where humanity lives in harmony with nature, recognizing our role as caretakers and custodians of this magnificent planet. Let our actions speak louder than words as we embody the transformation we wish to see. Together, we forge a path towards a future where love, compassion, and respect guide the way—a future where the health and well-being of the Earth and all its inhabitants are cherished above all else. It is with deep heartfelt gratitude we thank you for being here, as we gather and weave this tapestry of care, kindness, unity, harmony, generosity and reciprocity. 

We humbly bow, while also standing tall and grounded, as mighty trees with our palms raised to the sun. We are here as a stewards in love, service, dedication, devotion and joy. Thank you Great Spirit for this gift of life, and this moment. May we live, walk, breath, dance, speak and sing in a way that honors you and the beauty of all life.
