Honor the Tree People. You can burn copal resin, the blood
of trees, to honor the Tree People for providing our first breath, which is
spirit, and to call upon the ancestral spirits for their oversight, insight,
“Trees are our closest relatives. What we exhale, they
inhale. This is a constant relationship that no one can afford to live without.”
Teach your children what we have taught our children - that the Earth is our Mother. Whatever befalls the Earth befalls the sons and daughters of the Earth. If men spit upon the ground, they spit upon themselves. This we know. The Earth does not belong to us, we belong to the Earth. This we know. All things are connected like the blood that unites one family. All things are connected. Whatever befalls the Earth befalls the sons and daughters of the Earth. We did not weave the web of life; We are merely a strand in it. Whatever we do to the Web, We do to ourselves.
