10 Native American Commandments

by Tarheel on August 4th, 2014

I would be surprised if this has NOT been posted before.
I just ran across it and thought it may be timely to post.

TEN Native American COMMANDMENTS.
1. Treat the Earth & all that dwell thereon with Respect.
2. Remain close to the Great Spirit.
3. Show Great Respect for your fellow beings.
4. Work Together for the Benefit of All Mankind.
5. Give Assistance & Kindness wherever needed.
6. Do what you know to be right.
7. Look after the Well being of Mind & Body.
8. Dedicate a share of your Efforts to the Greater Good. .
9. Be Truthful & Honest at all times.
10. Take full Responsibility for your Actions

I don't think this needs to be confined to Native Americans.

So which race, tribe, creed are you referring to? It would be refreshing if this information was clear, and accurately presented so we would not have to ask for your meaning of "Native Americans" thought to be the original settlers on this North American Continent, because this term has been used loosely by many people when they are using it in referrence to the Native American Indians as they were the first settlers greeting the white people that came to America as colonists from their native European home lands, because of Politicial, and religious oppressions put apon them there in the early years of North America, beginning in the 1600's and after. These 10 commandments should be used under the title of
"THE10 COMMANDANTS FOR HUMANITY." I had already read these same 10 commandants before, and it did say those commandants were given BY THE NATIVE AMERICAN INDIANS, because they lived as nomads close to this planet, and they roamed freely across the vast prairies, and they lived in tents made from the buffalo, and they raised their herds of horses, and followed their wild game, such as the Buffalo, and Elk, and Moose, and Bear. The Native American Indians were the first people that the white people had ment when they came over on the ' Mayflower,' and then many other ships of the european countries, and [then the asians countries followed later] for a free, and better way of life without the fear of being perscuted by the church of Rome, the Vatican, and their leader the Pope during those times. So you see this term is used loosely when it is used the way you put it. It leaves too much room for confusion by many people reading this post from many countries around this planet. This forum does reach many countries, and so clearity should be used when making this point. I am native to this land of North America, but I am not American Indian, because they are the ORIGINAL NATIVES TO THIS CONTINENT, and the white race, and the black race, and the yellow race, and the others in between are not. We are Americans because were were born here, but we did not originate from here.
