Dear Mr. Noyes:
The world faced by business is changing… perhaps more today than in any previous period. I am writing to invite you to attend an Indigenous Peoples led forum that promises to provide ideas and methods for keeping up with those changes.
Sponsored by the American Indian Institute, this will be the seventh in a series of Ancient Voices - Contemporary Contexts Forums. The title is "Re-Polishing the Silver Covenant Chain: Building Relationships for the Good of the Earth."
Haudenosaunee hosts will share with you their methods for consensus-based decision making as defined in the Great Law of Peace more than 1,000 years ago. You will learn to implement Haudenosaunee-like protocols to develop action plans to guide change… change in yourself, in your family, your market places, community, your Provence and nation… global change… change in how people treat one another and the way the Earth is treated.
You will be guided by Traditional Circle Elders Oren Lyons, Faithkeeper, Turtle Clan, Onondaga; Tom Porter, Bear Clan, Akwesasne Mohawk; and others from the four directions. Hosts for the forum will be Richard Hill, Beaver Clan of the Tuscarora Nation, and Norma General Jacobs, Wolf Clan of the Cayuga Nation, both of the Haudenosaunee at Grand River Territory.
Please plan to be a part of this adventure September 13, 14, and 15, 2016 at the Six Nations Polytechnic, Grand River Territory, Ontario, Canada. The registration fee is $670 per person, which includes meals and the costs associated with cultural activities.
Please Note: this Forum is limited to just 60 participants, so please call or email Lisa Sutton 406-480-4533 Lisa@TwoCircles.org soon to reserve a spot, or register directly at www.twocircles.org/registration.
