Think With Your Heart!

The entire web of Life on Earth is born of reciprocal relationships — embodying both the ‘current’ and ‘currency’ of every living system. A balancing of this reciprocity must be carefully maintained and nurtured at all times for each relationship to remain healthy and sustainable far into the future. The wisdom of those still living as the “Indigenous People of Earth” remember the deeper nuances of this core covenant, this universal promise essential for All Life to thrive. This natural law applies to every aspect of human relationships as well.

When we take anything from Nature without asking permission and then forget to express our gratitude by offering a gift in return, we create an imbalance in the natural flow of reciprocity.  Each one of us can help to maintain or restore the balance, by gratefully offering what indigenous peoples call “tribute”– for everything that we have received from the bounty of our Mother Earth and our ancestors that has created the wealth that we enjoy today!

One way to easily offer tribute is to give generously in support of sharing the indigenous wisdom that is Tribal Trust Foundation’s mission. Your offerings will go a long ways toward sustaining the traditional cultures, elders and medicine people who carry the deep wisdom of interconnectedness within the Water Cycle of Life, an understanding that our world now so urgently needs for healing.

Each of the Tribal Trust partners are committed to protecting the vital abundance of our Mother Earth and sharing the cultural wisdom of those people who remember we are all indigenous to her. For many years these amazing teachers have continued tirelessly with their work despite great sacrifice to their own personal well-being and with severely insufficient funding. While the services these leaders, elders and healers provided to their communities are invaluable, most often, because of their commitment to serve All Life, as well as their traditional and cultural training, they won’t or can’t ask for the very support they often so desperately need. As their fiscal sponsors, it is our intention to help ease this lack of resources and daily hardships so that their teaching many reach the multitudes of people seek it.

You can help this effort significantly. By donating to a specific partner or project, your are not only stepping forward to support a teacher and cause you feel connected to, you are also clearly voicing your own commitment to love our Mother Earth and all her children. The Tribal Trust Foundation, our partners and the future generations thank you.
