"natural foods are more reactive to good thoughts, and thoughts are a form of energy..."


Today we can reestablish optimum health of individuals, families, communities, villages and nations by re-Indigenizing and hybridizing our diets collectively in a way that is culturally appropriate for our people. By re-adopting an Indigenous based diet, you'll be assisting in the reconfiguration of your spiritual tie to the Mother Earth. When you strengthen that spiritual tie, your mind will operate with more clarity, empowering you to think critically with an Indigenous mindset. Natural, whole food is organic matter that is made up of energy just like everything else, but because it is created by the earth’s soil, thus it exists at a higher vibration than something that is created by a factory. Processed foods and alcohol, on the other hand, resonate at a low vibration. As a result of being whole and organic, natural foods are more reactive to good thoughts you send towards it, and thoughts are a form of energy. When there is emotion behind your thought, a physical manifestation will soon follow. Our ancestors understood this through our own languages and thought processes, and that is why our ancestors have always prayed over their food and water. We should continue this practice.

After adapting to an ancestral diet––free of alcohol and other mind/mood altering substances––your body will be stronger and more responsive to your physical fitness goals because it’s not being zapped with unnatural preservatives and additives contained in processed foods and drinks that are detrimental to your body’s biochemistry. Your emotional wellness will also benefit significantly because your brain and body biochemistry will be in harmony. Ultimately, your entire being will function at an elevated level. The re-Indigenization of diet and dedication to eating ancestral foods is simply a return to this holistic lifestyle. Make no mistake, this is NOT a fad diet. Re-adapting to ancestral eating and should be a permanent shift to be passed down for future generations to enjoy.

By adapting to this elevated lifestyle, we will create positive economic repercussions as well. We will stop supporting fraudulent food, drug and alcohol corporations who care only about money and not about health. You have the power to positively impact intertribal food commerce by participating in the efforts of Tribal Food Sovereignty through gardening, hunting, gathering, trading and buying from local farmers. Tribal Food Sovereignty is an important nation building tactic which empowers our people through self-determination, ultimately leading to a vibrant and joyous life for us and future generations to come!
