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 and videos.

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 counterculture mission.

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.

In a 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 UN, Natives 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 UN, Natives And Hippies Unite To Save The World. Four related articles of mine are located here, here, here and here.

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 Bible prophesied 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 Gnostics, that 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 in Heaven" (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" with Fox.

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 and self-realization.

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 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'] 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, stupendous self."

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 ecological spirituality.

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.

NEWS: On July 23, 2016, ICTMN posted a 266 word comment of mine on a 7/20/16 article by Steven Newcomb entitled Time to Acknowledge Original Independence of Our Nations. It's the only comment posted on the article. It presents this website's URL, along with some of the above introductory material.

More news related to the this introductory summary of my mission is located here. It includes (1.) a video of a rainbow appearing in the sky above the City of Wahkon within a time frame that was providential [a divine sign], and (2.) comments of mine on two other ICTMN articles by world-renowned Indian/Indigenous activists.
