Warriors of the Rainbow


There was an old lady, from the 'Cree' tribe, named 'Eyes of Fire',
who prophesied that one day, because of the white man's or
Yo-ne-gis' greed, there would come a time when the fish would die
in the streams, the birds would fall from the air, the waters
would be blackened, and the trees would no longer be, and
mankind as we know it would all but cease to exist. There would
come a time when the 'keepers of the legend, stories, culture rituals,
and myths, and all Ancient Tribal Customs would be needed to
restore us to health. They would be mankind's key to survival,
they were the 'Warriors of the Rainbow'.

There would come a day of awakening when all the peoples of all
the tribes would form a New World of Justice, Peace, Freedom
and recognition of the Great Spirit. The 'Warriors of the
Rainbow' would spread these messages and teach all peoples of
the Earth. They would teach them how to live the 'Way of the
Great Spirit'. They would tell them how the world today has
turned away from the Great Spirit, and that is why the earth
is 'sick'. The 'Warriors of the Rainbow' would show the peoples
that this 'Ancient Being' (the Great Spirit), is full of love
and understanding, and teach them how to make the 'Earth or
Elohi' beautiful again. These Warriors would give the people
principles or rules to follow to make their path right with
the world. These principles would be those of the Ancient
Tribes. The Warriors of the Rainbow would teach the people
of the ancient practices of Unity, Love and Understanding.

They would teach of harmony among people in all four corners
of the Earth. Like the Ancient Tribes, they would teach the
people how to pray to the Great Spirit with love that flows
like the beautiful mountain stream, and flows along the path
to the ocean of life. Once again, they would be able to feel
joy in solitude and in councils. They would be free of petty
jealousies and love all mankind as their brothers, regardless
of color, race or religion. They would feel happiness enter
their hearts, and become as one with the entire human race.

Their hearts would be pure and radiate warmth, understanding
and respect for all mankind, nature and the Great Spirit. They
would once again fill their minds, hearts, souls and deeds
with the purest of thoughts. They would seek the beauty of the
Master of Life-the Great Spirit! They would find strength
and beauty in prayer and the solitudes of life
Their children would once again be able to run free and enjoy
the treasures of Nature and Mother Earth free from the toxins
and destruction wrought by the Yo-ne-gi and his practices of
greed. The rivers would again run clear, the forests be abundant
and beautiful, the animals and birds would be replenished.

The powers of the plants and animals would again be respected
and conservation of all that is beautiful would be a way of life.
the poor, sick and needy would be cared for by their brothers and
sisters of the Earth. These practices would again become a part of
their daily lives. The leaders of the people would be chosen in the
old way-not by their politial party, or who could speak the loudest,
boast the most, or by name calling or mud slinging, but by those
whose actions spoke the loudest. Those who demonstrated their love,
wisdom, and courage and those who showed that they could and did work
for the good of all, would be chosen as the leaders or Chiefs.

They would be chosen by their 'quality' and not the amount of money they
had obtained. Like the thoughtful and devoted 'Ancient Chiefs', they
would understand the people with love, and see that their young were
educated with the love & wisdom of their surroundings. They would show
them that miracles can be accomplished to heal this world of its ills
and restore it to health and beauty. The tasks of these 'Warriors of the
Rainbow' are many and great. There will be terrifying mountains of
ignorance to conquer and they shall find prejudice and hatred. They
must be dedicated, unwavering in their strength, and strong of heart
They will find willing hearts and minds that will follow them on this
road of returning 'Mother Earth' to beauty and plenty-once more.

The day will come, it is not far away. The day that we shall see
how we owe our very existence to the people of all tribes that have
maintained their culture and heritage. Those that have kept the rituals,
stories, legends, and myths alive. It will be with this knowledge, the
knowledge that they have preserved, that we shall once again return
to 'harmony' with Nature, Mother Earth, and mankind. It will be with
with this knowledge that we shall find our 'Key to our Survival'.
This is the story of the 'Warriors of the Rainbow' and this is my
reason for protecting the culture, heritage and knowledge of my
ancestors. I know that the day 'Eyes of Fire' spoke of will come!
I want my children and grandchildren to be prepared to accept this
task. The task of being one of the 'Warriors of the Rainbow'.

Lelanie Fuller Stone 'The Cherokee Lady', relates the above story
that her grandmother told her when she was a young girl.
