Although an accomplished athlete and an acclaimed film producer, Phil Lane Jr.’s life has, first and foremost, been an exercise in fostering human relations and community development. Native American and a hereditary Chief – of the Yankton Dakota and Chickasaw tribes – Lane has dedicated himself for over four decades to the pursuit of equality for the indigenous peoples of four different continents, including Africa. Born at the Haskell Indian Residential School, Lane grew up understanding, firsthand, the economic, spiritual, and political struggles of native groups. With that understanding, Lane chose, as an adult, to begin his career as an educator, speaking to students of all levels and ages about the culture and history of Native American peoples. In 1982, he was a founding member of the organization for which he still works as International Coordinator: Four Worlds International, a non-profit that brings unites the peoples of multiple tribes in development efforts. Ten years after the founding of Four Worlds, Lane was named the recipient of the prestigious Windstar Award for his tireless dedication toward a sustainable future for indigenous people on a global level. Lane was the first and, to date, only Native American to have ever been distinguished with the elite honor. Several years of guiding native communities toward a more prosperous and holistic life experience inspired Lane to write a novel as well as produce multiple television programs and films, including the award-winning series “Walking with Grandfather.” With a keen sense of responsibility and an undying respect towards the tribes into which he was born, Lane is tirelessly focused on the well-being and sustainability of native peoples in North America and around the world.
Quotations

“In all of our actions, we must seek to be living examples of the changes we wish to see in the world. By walking the path, we make the path visible”

“The greater the difficulty in our path, the greater the opportunity for our growth and ultimate victory; we can always become more than we have ever been.”

Protecting and Restoring the Sacred with Chief Phil Lane Jr 4pm 4-8-2012

Chief Phil Lane Jr. makes opening offering at First Nations solidarity event opposing tar sands mining and pipeline operations in Canada.

Members of the Canadian Protecting and Restoring the Sacred CC joined First Nations of that region in a standing-room-only event in Vancouver BC, calling for free, prior and informed consent regarding environmental protections of the fragile BC coastline, and in opposition to Alberta Tar Sands operations.

Noted author and XL Pipeline activist Naomi Klein (The Shock Doctrine) spoke, along with several Indigenous leaders, about the threat oil pipelines and supertankers pose in the waters and environment of British Columbia. Two major pipeline projects are proposed through the region that would bring tar sands oil through BC and to Canada’s west coast for export.

The diverse group attending the event included Chief Jackie Thomas of the Saik’uz First Nation (speaking on behalf of the Yinka Dene Alliance), who related her people’s fierce commitment to this struggle and opposition to the pipeline:

“Our five nations hold more than 25 percent of this proposed pipeline route in our territory, and we will never allow it to be built!”

ar Sands operations in Alberta, Canada – Before & After

The feeling in the room was one of “enthusiasm and unity”, according to the Vancouver Observer.

Over 130 signatories have now joined the “Save Fraser” declaration.

“The declaration says it upholds our ancestral laws, the title, rights and responsibilities that we hold. We will not allow the proposed Enbridge Northern Gateway pipeline, or any similar tar sands pipeline, to be built. This is our law,” said Chief Thomas.

Vauncouver Observer reports that

“(Along with) Thomas and Chief Phil Lane, a number of other Aboriginal leaders stood to address the crowd. Sundance Chief Reuben George of the Tsleil-Waututh Nation gave introductions and brought his entire family on stage to welcome guests to unceded territory. First Nations actor Adam Beach also brought his children on stage, tearing up during a song about ensuring their future. And later, 10-year-old Ta’Kaiya Blaney sang a heartfelt song urging citizens to join the “earth revolution”.”

Quoting from the Vancouver Observer:

“(Melina Laboucan-Massimo, a Greenpeace campaigner from the Lubacon Lake Cree Nation in Alberta) went on to describe a disastrous spill that occurred in May 2011, when 28,000 barrels of tar sands crude leaked all over the traditional territory. She said neither the company (Plains All American) nor the government had attempted to notify the community, despite the fact that residents and schoolchildren were getting sick from the effects. Fighting back tears, Laboucan-Massimo displayed a series of aerial photographs taken in the days following the spill.”

Commenting via email on the event, URI Global Council Trustee Rebecca Tobias went on to add:

“It was an uplifting and encouraging event. I believe that we will see more of these positive, future-focused gatherings all across the US and Canada as people begin to find their voice and renew their commitment to building communities of conscience. Members of URI’s Protecting and Restoring the Sacred CC, Chief Phil Lane Jr.and Sundance Chief Reuben George, took part in the planning and presentation of the evening’s program, keeping true to URI’s commitment to, ‘unite in responsible cooperative action to bring the wisdom and values of our religions, spiritual expressions and indigenous traditions to bear on the economic, environmental, political and social challenges facing our Earth community.'”

Raven speaks with Chief Leonard Crowdog on “Make No Bones About It.” 1-8-2012 5-6pm

Leonard Crow Dog is a traditional Chief of the Lakota Nation and a recognized spiritual leader, intercessor and healer. He was the spiritual adviser to the American Indian Movement during the siege of Wounded Knee in 1973 and has played a significant role throughout his life in protecting and reviving sacred ceremonies such as the Sun Dance, vision quest (hanblecha) and sweat lodge (inipi).

A visionary who welcomes spiritual people of all races to Crow Dog’s Paradise, his ancestral home in South Dakota, Chief Crow Dog has been a tireless advocate for human rights, peace and justice for Native people.

Kept away from white Christian schools by his parents so that he would not dilute the special spiritual gifts his elders recognized in him from birth, he still speaks today with the poetic syntax of his native Lakota language. In this rare appearance in the Northwest, Chief Crow Dog shares his reflections on the state of the universe and the role of the sacred human being in these pivotal times.

“So my relations, let’s join together and meet the plant of Tree of Life…

So the unborn shall inherit this power from the old dream and vision.
This is what Swnka Cangi has echoed of the four winds of the universe…

The language shall never fail. Why?
It’s in the sacred of the sacred.

“We must follow the old teachings done before us… Let’s walk together, crawl together, fly together, swim together, walk through the tunnel of the earth… grandmother earth… We are one family, one nation of nations…”

— Chief Leonard Crow Dog, Swnka Cangi
