The Pledge of the Rainbow Warriors to Restore the Earth
Among the First Nations Cree tribe was an Elder woman, named 'Eyes of Fire', who prophesied thatbecause of White Man's greed, the fish in the streams would die, birds would fall to the ground, waterwould turn black, the trees would also die and human existence would be threatened.Then a tribe of people would come to restore the ancient customs, legends, stories and ceremonies of theland. This tribe would usher a new awakening of harmony between the people of the four corners of theearth and the Creator of the land. They would teach how to restore our dying planet by weaving humanidentity back into our natural environment.They will cause a return of the beauty of earth to its original paradise. They will call this tribe of peoplefrom every race and nation, the Rainbow Warriors. Rainbow Warrior was the name chosen for a shipused by environmentalists in the 1970s and 1980s. It was bombed by a government that became liable forthe sinking of the ship and the death of one of the environmentalists. Please share this pledge witheveryone you know, be willing to die for Mother Earth and you will begin to hear creation speak andteach you the way of the Rainbow Warrior....
The Pledge of the Rainbow Warrior
I(We) solemnly pledge as a Rainbow Warrior to become a motivating force led by Indigenous elders whooffer a safe passage-rite to weave human identity into the environment of Mother Earth. As a Rainbow Warrior, I pledge to be motivated to the full extent of the human will, motivated to give upany kind of illicit luxury, motivated to postpone any licit good, and even motivated to die for the primary purpose of transferring the natural earth as an inheritance to the children of future generations. As a Rainbow Warrior, I pledge to become learned in the knowledge and the stories of the land as itsscience and mysteries instruct humanity and all living systems into an equitable harmony. As a Rainbow Warrior, I pledge to choose no living enemies, but to embrace the singular conflict with myinner-self for the purpose of curbing my human activities toward this ecological harmony within the Natural Law. As a Rainbow Warrior, I pledge to become part of a Spiritual Force commissioned by the Creator and able to inspire and heal others, especially those most broken by the world-view of exploitation, with theunderstanding that no wounded warriors, no matter how hopeless their circumstances, are to be left behind.
As a Rainbow Warrior, I pledge to be inspired by the visions and dreams of the Indigenous Elders, fromevery culture of life, especially those cultures maintaining Indigenous values, and I pledge to become familiar with their dreams and prophecies and to become aware of the signs of the times.
As a Rainbow Warrior, I (We) pledge to answer this desperate call at this cross-roads of living history to join in the migration by pulling for Turtle Island, taking only what is necessary to sustain harmony with Mother Earth and leaving behind all things that might harm her capacity to nourish all living things.
As my passage-rite, as a Rainbow Warrior, I solemnly pledge to wear this banner on my heart,
