Excerpt from "Indigenous Peoples -- Message to the World"
We at BetterListen! are delighted to introduce a series of sample transcriptions from a number or our recordings. With spring in its explosive full force, we feel it is an excellent time to be reminded of the beliefs and teachings of the Indigenous Peoples. Following is an excerpt from our recording of "Indigenous Peoples -- Message to the World."
Declaration: We the Indigenous Peoples walk to the future in the footprints of our ancestors, from the smallest to the largest living being, from the four directions, from the air, the land and the mountains. The Creator has placed us, the Indigenous Peoples, upon our mother the earth. The footprints of our ancestors are permanently etched upon the lands of our peoples. We the Indigenous Peoples maintain our inherent rights to self-determination. We have always had the right to decide our own forms of government, to use our own laws, to raise and educate our children, to our own cultural identity, without interference. We continue to maintain our rights as peoples despite the centuries of deprivation, assimilation, and genocide. We maintain our inalienable rights to our lands and our territories, to all our resources above and below, and to our waters we assert our ongoing responsibility to pass these on to the future generations. We cannot be removed from our lands. We the Indigenous peoples are connected by the circle of life to our lands and environment. We the Indigenous peoples walk to the future in the footprints of our ancestors. Signed in Karoka, Brazil on the 30th day of May, 1992.

"I suggest to you that the way we need to look at it is because we are not really physical beings yearning for a spiritual experience. We are in reality eternal creative beings. Creating a physical experience and it takes quite a shift in mind set to get your self around that one." - Edgar Mitchell Bio and links
