12 Noon: First Voices Radio: Tiokasin Ghosthorse

Land, air and water, it’s nature’s law. In this edition of First Voices Radio we bring to you the basics of how not to violate the law and present the voices of people experiencing the consequences of war against Mother Earth. We are all trying to live with Mother Earth and not on Mother Earth by holding dear the law of land, air and water. The voices heard in this hour — Oren Lyons, John Trudell (d. 2015) and Phillip Deere (d. 1985) — were all recorded before 1980. Listen to these elders, their words and, especially, to the prophesies. Phillip Deere said, “In the prophesies of our people, during the spiritual rebirth of the Native people, the earth will purify itself. That day of purification is coming and it is beginning today. Spiritual movement is strong. Any organization with no spiritual foundations will crumble to the ground. It will never exist forever. There has to be a spiritual foundation and that spiritual foundation will keep the people strong. According to our prophesies that spiritual rebirth will bring about cleansing of the Earth. No matter how it’s going to happen, how it’s going to be done. Life will begin again. There will be another life.”
