Mitakuye Oyasin: Ancient Wisdom Moving Into the Future

by Gabriel of Urantia


Throughout history, the wisdom of the ancestors of many indigenous peoples has been passed on. As we look at the crises today, we find ourselves searching for solutions to insurmountable problems. Yet the ancient ones had a key: in Lakota it is said, “Mi Ta Ku Ye O Ya Sin,” — “we are all related.”

A Chiapas elder said, “We must incorporate the past teachings into the present.” What did he mean by that? One interpretation is that today indigenous people must use technology for the advantage of their people. Some modern inventions—including developments in artistic fields and other career choices—are needed in order to best serve the indigenous peoples and genuinely meet their needs. Modernization in many areas is wise and can benefit the masses if done without materialistic conformity.

This Mayan elder meant that the spirituality of the past must be joined with the knowledge of scientific facts of today. For instance, the Earth, once believed to be the center of the universe thousands of years ago, is actually just a spec of dust in the universal cosmos. Truth is ever-expanding, and our minds need to begin to grasp a more cosmic perspective as we become true planetary citizens of this earth.

True revolution, as taught in the Spiritualution movement, is the spiritual fusion of the heart/earth/star knowledge teachings of the old ways of the ancestors with the latest revelatory cosmic teachings of ascension science and the physics of rebellion in Continuing Fifth Epochal Revelation as revealed in The Cosmic Family volumes. It is the realization by five hundred million starseed, who have not been able to fit into the present system, that they have lived before and know that they have a point of origin from another universe.

We must begin to unite planet-wide. We can no longer separate ourselves based on our metaphysical theological differences. We must begin to see the bigger picture. Native Americans and the indigenous worldwide understand the difference between “good spirits” and “bad spirits.” They see the hierarchy that exists on the other side and know that the Great Spirit controls all the good spirits. There are many names for the Great Spirit in indigenous cultures, including: Ta Ja She La or Ta Ku Wakan (Lakota); Wakan-Tanka (Dakota); Taiowa (Hopi); Ktsi Nwaskw or Tabaldak (Abenaki); Ah-badt-dadt-deah (Crow); Agudar (Aleut); Orenda (Iroquois); Manitou (Algonquian); Ma'heo'o (Cheyenne); and Wako'da (Omaha) to name a few. However, many tribes believe that it doesn’t matter what you call the Great Spirit but rather that it is important to know that the Great Spirit is a personality and that this Creator has a will, a destiny, for all free-will creature life, known on this planet as human beings. The Native teacher Sun Bear said, “Does your religion grow good corn?” We should think bigger and seek higher thoughts; to examine your own philosophies and beliefs, in hopes of us all uniting to stop the pain and tremendous suffering of our brothers and sisters worldwide, to end the evil.

At the opposite extreme of all love and goodness is a dark entity who controls all the dark spirits. This entity also has many names, but what is important for us human beings is that we know the difference between the two voices of good and evil; light and darkness. Native American tribes call the leader of the dark spirits by names such as: tsv-s-gi-no (Cherokee); madjahando/“evil power” (Abenaki); aatinloska or aattobiilachi (Alabama); Matchemenetoo/”bad spirit” (Shawnee); Lavaihoya/“the talker” or Masaw/keeper of the Third World until he fell into self-importance, then Taiowa [God] made him ruler of the underworld; later he got a second chance and God made him ruler of the Fourth World (Hopi).

This same leader of the dark side—according to the Fifth Epochal Revelation (which is a new language for the Fifth World)—is called Caligastia. He is of an order of beings known as Secondary Lanonandek Sons, and he has a great army of soldiers of many fallen celestial tribes. Millions of them are unsuspecting humans who carry out his orders of greed and separation of the star tribes.

To battle this evil one, we must walk together through the old dark wilderness into this time of the purification with new spiritual eyes and ears. We must not have animosity towards each other. Our ancestors on the other side are waiting with patience and praying for our unification against those who took away their land and starved and murdered their children. Like the spirit of Crazy Horse, we must save our strength to fight the true enemy and enemies of the Earth Mother, and perhaps most of all, like the spirit of Sitting Bull, all of the Star Tribes must now join together to dance the dance of true unity for a new age—it is the sacred sun dance of hope for our children and grandchildren.

Remember what our ancestors taught: Mi Ta Ku Ye O Ya Si.

We are all related.
