Chief Arvol Looking Horse 'World Peace and Prayer Day: Honoring Sacred Sites June 21, 2020'

Chief Arvol Looking Horse

”Maka akantula (People of the earth),

This is our 25th year in our efforts to bring attention to the importance of the remaining Sacred Sites around the world; where we have visited Nations and honored their ancestor’s place of worship. One day I would like to see “Honoring Sacred Sites Day, June 21st” recognized all over the world, when people will finally understand their importance. My personal direction and responsibility has been to pay attention to our prophecy of White Buffalo Calf Woman. She said there would come a time when a sign would show where man’s behavior had gone too far in their destructive choices. And our Ancestors have shared from ceremony — “we warned - people would not be able to control what they have created.”

In 1994, the same year Global Warming was first announced, in Janesville Wisconsin, a white buffalo calf with black hooves, black nose and eyes was born. She was named Miracle. Many people came from the four directions to pay homage, because spiritual people knew this was a blessing and yet a warning. Since that time, many white animals around the world have revealed themselves to Nations that hold them important in their culture. Memories I recall through this 25 year journey; while with Aboriginal Nations in Australia, a white kangaroo came out of the bush during our ceremony, and being shown pictures of Migalo, the white whale, in the great waters. Many of these white animals are still coming, telling us to pay attention to the choices we have to make, to change our behavior. This attention is to respect the gifts from Mother Earth, to respect one another’s way of life in helping to protect Sacred Sites, bring respect back to Nation’s sacred spiritual items and ceremonies that are now being abused.

We will come together once again during this time, but now we are being asked to stand apart, in order to be safe. We are told we need to keep distance if we respect one another - because a dark spirit has come upon us that is causing much suffering for all humanity. In this present time there is a lot of anger, hatred and racism. We need to create change in all our lives and respect one another’s ways of prayer. We know in our hearts that good will always overcome if we stand in unity.

Some of the places where we have created a sacred fire will be able to join us during this time. We will visit them through technology, where they will share what they have witnessed since our visit to their territory.

I humbly ask people to join together in prayer for a great healing, even by lighting a candle within your home and offer tobacco outside to the earth to give thanks.

These are now the crossroads: either be faced with global disasters, earth changes, climate changes, different sicknesses causing tears from our relatives eyes - or we can unite spiritually, globally - All Nations, All Faiths, One Prayer.

In a Sacred Hoop of Life, where there is no ending and no beginning!
It is time all People understand Mother Earth is the Source of life, not a resource.

Mahalo and Wopila, Arvol. Your life's work is an inspiration for us all. I'm working with Ejna now, in Sacred Earth Council, as well as sharing the message of humanity's need to harmonize through our diversity, in order to co-create the world we really want!

Yes dear Arvol - Your voice, heart and spirit are essential to this process of opening our hearts and transitioning with the Earth into higher frequencies where the laws are expanded and there is more beauty, balance, joy and abundance than we can fathom. You and the visionary indigenous people have been holding the keys to accessing this way of living and being for all of humanity. Eternal gratitude! Keep sharing! Andrew and I will be with you on June 21, as we were in 2014 in upstate New York. With love to you and Paula, Connie Baxter Marlow

FATHER, these are the chosen people, and the apple of your eye. We know you are fighting for them. May we all bow down to you humbly to love, and serve these our precious neighbors. I mourn for the prejudice, and arrogance of so many people. CHRIST is angry at such pride, and cruelty. The tables will be turned.
