Welcome to my website!
Picture of me in Wahkon, Minnesota
Here I present articles, letters and videos about
my indigenous peoples' rights advocacy initiatives, accomplishments and
related leadership mission within today's hippie counterculture movement.
Below, I first present a 2393 word introductory article about my advocacy work and
related counterculture mission, then following the article I present links to my many articles, letters
My introductory article:
A 2015 Time Magazine
article promotes a book that "chronicles today’s hippie counterculture movement throughout the U.S.
and in parts of Europe." A few years before this magazine article was published the world's largest Indian news source,
Indian Country Today Media Network, published an
article that promoted a book entitled
Hippies, Indians and the Fight for Red Power. This same book is promoted in a 2015
article by Dina Gilio-Whitaker, an associate scholar at the Center for World Indigenous Studies.
In the article, Gilio-Whitaker wrote: "The uproar about the Rainbow Family Gathering in the Black Hills reminds us that the
counterculture is alive and well in the U.S. Not just a relic of a forgotten era..." In the article she also states that
"in the 1960's and 70's counterculture hippies were important allies" who "helped advance" the Red Power movement.
"Those who attend Rainbow Gatherings usually share an interest
in intentional communities, ecology, New Age spirituality and entheogens." (ref.) ... "From a historical perspective,
the New Age phenomenon [i.e., the New Age movement and spirituality] is rooted in the counterculture of the 1960s." (Wikipedia ref.) (pontifical council ref.)
The ultimate goal of the New Age hippie counterculture movement is to unite the world's religions and cultures to
create, in effect, a one-world religion (i.e., a single spiritual philosophy) and
global culture wherein all of humanity will live harmoniously together as one.
My mission is to lead the way toward accomplishing
the ultimate goal of this movement. This movement represents a particular type of globalization.
It is promoted in the lyrics of John Lennon's song Imagine: "I hope someday you'll join us. And the world will live
as one." More about this topic is presented in a segment (below) entitled: An introduction to my New Age hippie
An introduction to my indigenous peoples' rights advocacy work:
I got started with my indigenous peoples' rights advocacy work by becoming the
co-founder and director of
Rum River Name
Change Organization, Inc..
My advocacy work to change the derogatory name of a Minnesota river:
Our effort to
restore the sacred Dakota name Wakan (Spirit) to the "Rum River" has
received support from two Mdewakanton Dakota communities, as well as many organizations
and individuals, including several nationally and three internationally renowned indigenous
rights activists, a Catholic archbishop, bishop and MN state representative, etc.. We've also
received a letter from the Vatican and support from a representative of an UN
indigenous issues organization. Many local businesses, parks, trails, etc.
now have the name Spirit River, such as Spirit River Nature Area. West Rum River Drive was changed to
Spirit River Drive. And there is a Watpa Wakan Trail.
My advocacy work on a Minnesota bill to change 13 derogatory geographic place names:
At my request (now retired) Representative Mike Jaros wrote up a 2007 bill to change 13 derogatory
geographic place names. Then, after I addressed the Minnesota Indian Affairs Council and received
its support for Jaros to introduce the bill to the legislature, he did so. The Council also asked
me to write a letter to the legislature expressing its support for the passage of
the bill, which I did.
My advocacy work on a Minnesota resolution:
In 1992 Steven Newcomb (Shawnee, Lenape)
and Birgil Kills Straight (Oglala Lakota) started a campaign to set their people
free from the subjugated state of existence imposed upon indigenous peoples around the world by an
international legal construct known as the Doctrine of Discovery, a doctrine based on a
series of 15th century papal bulls. Newcomb recently met with Pope Francis to ask him to
revoke one of those infamous papal bulls Inter Caetera and to
also give the pope an article and book he authored. The campaign that Newcomb and Kills
Straight began in 1992 is now a global movement.
At my request Newcomb gave some input into
a Minnesota resolution that I, with Chief
Leonard Wabasha's supervision, wrote and Representative Dean Urdahl edited and introduced
to the MN legislature. The resolution includes a statement about the Doctrine of Discovery.
My advocacy work associated with my writing contributions to the world's largest
Indian/Indigenous news source:
Steven Newcomb is co-founder and co-director of the Indigenous Law Institute. He is a
world-renowned Indigenous rights activist. And he is a columnist for Indian Country Today
Media Network (ICTMN), the world's largest Indian news source. This news source occasionally posts
a selective comment or two, rarely three or more, on its articles. It regularly posts
my comments on Newcomb's articles.
comment of mine that was posted on an ICTMN article
by Newcomb (an article that was published soon after he met with the pope) I presented the
title and some other information about an article of mine related to his article. I am
referring to my article
Native Rights, Pope Francis And The New World Order. I
believe that Newcomb's ICTMN articles are being closely monitored by the Vatican. And I believe
that it is likely that, both, my comments on Newcomb's articles and the material on this website
are also being monitored by the Vatican.
An introduction to my New Age hippie counterculture mission:
A revival of the hippie counterculture movement of the 1960s is occurring today.
There is Skip Stone's 225,000 registered members website
Hippyland and sister site
Cool, they are sites that promote this revival. And there are the hippie New Age spirituality adherents of the Rainbow Family.
And there are also
other contemporary expressions of the hippie revival and movement happening
today. The webmaster of Hippyland and Cool has posted several of
my articles on
the Cool site. A popular Hippyland article of mine is entitled
And Hippies Unite To Save The World.
In this introduction I present evidence that shows that I am
in the forefront of this hippie revival. I also show how today's
hippie counterculture movement, the global indigenous people's decolonization movement and the UN-led global
ethic movement are merging to become essentially one single movement. My introductory
article about my New Age hippie counterculture mission is entitled
And Hippies Unite To Save The World. Four related articles of mine are located
During a November 24, 2016, interview with internationally acclaimed spiritual theologian, Episcopal priest and activist Rev.
Matthew Fox - who is best known for his leadership role in the revolutionary Creation Spirituality movement - John Shuck, the
interviewer, said: “this is important to talk about, you [Matthew Fox] mentioned that this is not only a 20th century
new kind of hippie spirituality, creation spirituality, it goes back all the
way to...” The interview is entitled
Thomas Mertion's Creation Spirituality Journey.
In her 1983 #1 best-selling book
The Hidden Dangers of the Rainbow Constance Cumbey offered the
first major criticism of the New Age movement from a Christian perspective. She has also discussed the contents of
this book of hers on the EWTN global Catholic TV network. Cumbey believes that Matthew Fox, a former Catholic priest,
is "the best known New Age apostate from Catholicism," and she once suggested, a few decades ago, that he was most
likely the Antichrist of the end-times.
Like many other Christians, Cumbey believes that the "end-times Antichrist" will usher in the
New World Order (NWO). The mission of the New Age movement is to
establish a NWO of peace and security. When writing about the New Age spirituality, Pope John Paul II wrote:
"It is only a new way of practicing Gnosticism..." I believe, as do other New Age
Christianity is a
hoax instigated and perpetrated by the
"God of Abraham"
(Jehovah/Yahweh, the God of the Old Testament) and that the
"end-times Antichrist" is a true prophet of Jesus' "God the Father
(a different God than Jehovah\Yahweh) who will usher in the
New Age/New World Order.
When talking about the current pope in a 2016
interview, Matthew Fox said that the previous two popes called
his work "dangerous and devious," but that Pope Francis "is plagiarizing it," suggesting that the Roman Catholic
Church is now indirectly following his lead. In a blog post, Constance Cumbey wrote that I am "closely affiliated"
Over three decades ago, in 1983, I had a half hour long, one-on-one conversation with Reverend Matthew Fox. It occurred at the
annual Tekakwitha Conference. During our "talk" I told Fox about my hippie counterculture mission. At the time, he made
a very positive comment about it and then asked me to "stay in touch with him." At a later time, he gave his written
support for my effort to change the name of the "Rum River."
During our meeting, Fox told me that the Roman Catholic monk and priest Thomas Merton (1915–1968) had asked him to reach out to the
hippies. Merton is internationally renowned for his world-unifying interfaith dialogue with Buddhist, Hindu and Sufi mystics. Leading
Christian opponents of the New Age movement consider Pope Francis' promotion of Merton's "New Age spirituality" to be
the greatest threat to Christianity. Jesuit Father John Hardon (1914-2000),
who authored “The Catholic Catechism” at the request of Pope Paul VI said that Merton was “not fully converted intellectually
to the Catholic Faith” and that "The New Age movement mainly owes its genesis and development to Thomas Merton.”
Fox's "new kind of hippie spirituality," (or creation spirituality - a type of spirituality that originated long ago) was promoted
by the excommunicated Roman Catholic Meister Eckhart (1260-1328) and later by Pierre Teilhard de Chardin (1881–1955).
Teilhard de Chardin was a silenced Catholic who did not believe in "original sin", a Catholic dogma, and many today believe he
is the Father of the New Age movement. Fox's, Merton's, Eckhart's and de Chardin's common spiritualities are spreading
throughout the Christian Church and will, I believe, eventually usher in a new age wherein [humanity] will be united and
liberated, and [the earth] will be set free from its current ecological crisis.
New Age prophetess Alice Bailey (1880-1949) predicted
that the "Christian churches" would eventually embrace the New Age [Eastern religions'] concepts of illumination
I believe that Fox's expression of Creation Spirituality embraces the New Age concepts of illumination and self-realization.
Creation Spirituality is pan[en]theistic spirituality. A principle of Creation Spirituality is panentheism: God is as much
beyond all words and images [or, beyond the creation, which is an image or form] as in all forms and beings [or, as in all
of creation]. God is both transcendent (beyond the creation) and immanent (in all of creation).
Christ’s claim, “No man cometh unto the Father, but by me” (John 14:6), is a promise to all humanity, irrespective of creed. "Jesus
meant, never that he was the sole Son of God, but that no man can attain the unqualified Absolute, the transcendent Father beyond
creation, until he has first manifested the 'Son' or activating Christ Consciousness within creation." - Swami Sri Yukteswar
Robert Muller (1923 - 2010) was once the Assistant Secretary-General of the United Nations and was called the "Philosopher"
and "Prophet of Hope" of this world-unifying organization. Muller was a disciple of Alice Bailey and he wrote:
"Decide to open yourself to God, to the Universe [the universe is an 'essentially undifferentiated mass of light'
permeated with 'Christ Consciousness'], to all your brethren and sisters, to your inner self...to the potential of the
human race, to the infinity of your inner self, and you will become the universe [or, you will become essentially the divinity within
all of creation, manifesting the 'Son']...you will become infinity [or, you will become infinitely bigger than the
finite universe and one with the 'transcendent Father beyond creation'], and you will be at long last your real, divine,
Creation Spirituality integrates the wisdom of Eastern and Western spirituality and global indigenous cultures, with
the emerging scientific understanding of the universe. I believe that Matthew Fox's creation spirituality, "a new kind
of hippie spirituality," is an expression of the global New Age ecumenical/interfaith movement and earth-saving
Two pontifical councils have jointly placed Fox's book The Coming of the Cosmic Christ on their ("NOTES" section) list
of New Age books. His article is
(#58). In their reference link
material associated with Fox's (#58) article, the pontifical councils equate
Fox's "Cosmic Christ" to the New Age Christ. In the same reference link
material they also equate Fox's "Cosmic Christ"
mission with the New Age mission to bring about an "enormous paradigm shift."
In 2011, Glen Beck, one of America’s leading multi-media personalities, is quoted in a
video (time frame 100:25 - 101:00) "the hippie New Age
spirituality which I actually agree with." I believe that Matthew Fox's "new kind of hippie spirituality" is a
contemporary expression of the hippie New Age spirituality.
The 1960s and 70s hippie New Age spirituality is becoming popular again. And
contemporary expressions of the hippie counterculture movement are
also growing in popularity. The New Age of world illumination and self-realization is at hand.
The New Age movement is ushering in an unified global consciousness, a new world order, with a one-world spiritual philosophy
that will serve as the bases and principle of unity for a one-world government.
Maharishi Mahesh Yogi and the Beatles
When referring primarily to the hippie spiritual revolution that began in the 1960s,
a revolution that was an expression of New Age spirituality and highly influenced by
the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi and the Beatles, Peter R. Jones, an internationally renowned
Christian theologian, lecturer and author, wrote: Indeed, the Sixties was a
spiritual revolution that has now morphed into a worldview that promises to alter
how we all believe and act in the planetary era.
ONE-WORLD SPIRITUAL PHILOSOPHY: A HIPPIE
WORLD UNITY SIGN (pictured below) is prominently displayed in a Caryl Productions 2012
video about a large contemporary New Age/
New Spirituality "Christian" movement that is portrayed
as a new expression of the hippie spiritual revolution. The video is titled: WIDE IS THE GATE - The
Emerging New Christianity
VOLUME 1 and
VOLUME 2. There is also a green hippie peace
sign on the cover of the video's advertised DVD.
I would like to become recognized by the multitudes as being in the forefront
of this "emerging new Christianity" movement and then usher in the New Age, one-world spiritual
philosophy that, I believe, will serve as the spiritual foundation for a New World Order, also
comprised of a one-world economic system and world government.
