Episode 159. BEST IN CLIMATE: Haudenosaunee Thanksgiving Address,
Greetings to the Natural World
The Haudenosaunee Confederacy, comprised of the Mohawks, Oneida, Cayuga, Onandaga and Seneca Peoples, offer their Thanksgiving Address as a central prayer to the Natural World, thanking each life-sustaining force for the abundance it brings to all our lives. This address speaks aloud mutual respect, conservation, love, generosity, and the responsibility to understand that what is done to one part of the Web of Life, we do to ourselves.
