Philosophical Basis of Aquidneck Indian Council is based on Oral

Tradition and the teachings of the Bible. Most Indians today are
True Christian Indians. We see a close affinity between the
teachings here and the ways of the Ancient Ones. The sufferings
Indians have endured (Body, Mind, Spirit) are buried in the
Wisdom of these words. We call this domain of inquiry with our
new word Geistodics (see our work, "Neologisms...."). These
principles were taught to me by my Family.

Epistapathia = Sorrow through knowledge


Neologisms: A Compilation Of New Words
Suggested For Incorporation Into The English Language.
Aquidneck Indian Council, 1996

Ecclesiastes 1King James Version (KJV)


1 The words of the Preacher, the son of David, king in Jerusalem.
2

Vanity of vanities, saith the Preacher, vanity of vanities; all is vanity.

What profit hath a man of all his labour which he taketh under the sun?

One generation passeth away, and another generation cometh: but the earth
abideth for ever.
5

The sun also ariseth, and the sun goeth down, and hasteth to his place where he
arose.
6

The wind goeth toward the south, and turneth about unto the north; it whirleth
about continually, and the wind returneth again according to his circuits.
7

All the rivers run into the sea; yet the sea is not full; unto the place from whence
the rivers come, thither they return again.
8

All things are full of labour; man cannot utter it: the eye is not satisfied with
seeing, nor the ear filled with hearing.
9

The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that
which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun.

10

Is there any thing whereof it may be said, See, this is new? it hath been already of
old time, which was before us.
11

There is no remembrance of former things; neither shall there be any


remembrance of things that are to come with those that shall come after.
12

I the Preacher was king over Israel in Jerusalem.

13

And I gave my heart to seek and search out by wisdom concerning all things that
are done under heaven: this sore travail hath God given to the sons of man to be
exercised therewith.
14

I have seen all the works that are done under the sun; and, behold, all is vanity
and vexation of spirit.
15

That which is crooked cannot be made straight: and that which is wanting cannot
be numbered.
16

I communed with mine own heart, saying, Lo, I am come to great estate, and
have gotten more wisdom than all they that have been before me in Jerusalem: yea,
my heart had great experience of wisdom and knowledge.
17

And I gave my heart to know wisdom, and to know madness and folly: I
perceived that this also is vexation of spirit.
18

For in much wisdom is much grief: and he that increaseth knowledge increaseth
sorrow.

Why we operate in the reda color most cherished by Indians

Matthew 19:24 New Testament


Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than
for a rich person to enter the kingdom of God.

Cultural Philosophy

Matthew 22:20-22King James Version (KJV)


20

And he saith unto them, Whose is this image and superscription?

21

They say unto him, Caesar's. Then saith he unto them, Render therefore unto
Caesar the things which are Caesar's; and unto God the things that are God's.
22

When they had heard these words, they marvelled, and left him, and went their
way
