Respect and Thanksgiving for Nature – Business as usual is over says Oren R Lyons at the Globe Forum Conference

24/05/2010 / Kaj



Oren Lyons, faithkeeper of the Onondaga Nation, has traveled the world to speak out against environmental destruction and other wrongs committed in the name of “progress.”

Lyons’ message draws upon the traditions of the Haudenosaunee, or the Six Nations of the Iroquois Confederacy, traditions rooted in respect and thanksgiving for nature. Lyons, 77, frequently cites the Peacemaker, a prophet who instructed the nations hundreds of years ago. www.onondaganation.org
