Our Circle of Elders

The Vision we try to imprint on our younger generations is closely guided by our anestral observation that in this universe forces, fileds, objects and living thhings find a way of expression by letting be led by sacred original instrouctions.At the most elevated yet profoud level, everything can be understood, in such a diverse way, when two opposisite forces or fields also complement or complete way.

Mature cultures, such as the Algonquin people, to which our founder, medicene man and wise Elder Jacob (Mowegan) Wawatie belonged to, finds a common epistonologicalunderstanding to other mature cultures far from Turtle Island to the South. Andean elder Marcelo also is a founder member of this important element of OPIRG, for the sake of our current and coming generatios, to the 7th or the 13th skin .

At the heart of the teachings our Elders are carriers of, at OPIRG we cherish the teaching of the Story of Turtle Island.

The most important aspect ina ny human being`s life (or any other sentient being, for that matter) is to become a good ancestor. Especially in the midsts of the destructive tendency of the current industral civilization we must be the inexorable bridge between our ancestsors and the ones the come. The Law of Parity is thusly accomplished, reverberating cosmic teachings from Creator.
