This Internet site was created in the hope that all people, no matter what their own culture, may be able to find a bit of information that might be helpful in the understanding of American Indian Culture and other Native Cultures from all over our Mother which is called Earth!

Native People’s Cultures are as diverse as nature, but with good reason! Nature is our teacher and guide for walking the path of life! The Native Cultures teach that it is the human species responsibility to take care of our Mother! Only appreciation is asked, for what she gives us, in return for her care!

Progress is a wonderful thing! If we can keep some of the beliefs from the First People’s Cultures, that are alive and well, incorporated with the technology that leads to progress, it may help all peoples to live in a more harmonious world not only with Nature but with each other as well!

It is time to Celebrate and Appreciate the Diversity in the Human Species as we do in Nature! The rose is beautiful, but how long would its beauty be appreciated if it was the only species of flower we had to enjoy! It does not matter what name the Creator goes by or if you believe in one, many or none at all! The experience of a storm, rainbow, or just the sun rising and setting tells us there is a much Greater Power that speaks to all cultures and this Power that we call Nature survives because of diversity!
