    This was a letter I received from Douglas Jack


    She:kon Benjamin,
    Niawen for this statement of the Great Law at
    It is a joy to read your posting as a tool for spreading the great law. I’d
    like to share with you our inclusive livelihood economic approach to the Great




    Indigene Community is devoted to humanity’s universal ‘indigenous’ (Latin= ‘self generating’) heritage from around the world. We interpret the Great Law of Peace as a worldwide universal law of mutual-aid kindled more in the day-to-day economic life of indigenous people, than in grand pronouncements and conflict-diplomacy (although these have a place). The Great Law refers to and is founded in ‘multihome’ extended dwellings such as the Longhouse, ‘Place of the extended rafters’ (apartment-like) and Pueblo (townhouse-like) dwellings.


    All indigenous peoples everywhere cultivated the heart and love of the multihome dwelling. With personal and family privacy in distinct dwelling space but as well with the proximity of multihome dwellings used by indigenous peoples around the world, all generations could interact in complementary mutual-aid.




    ‘Caucusing’ (Iroquois = ‘Grouping of like-interests’) of specialties in
    Production Societies progressive ownership from young apprentice to elder
    master created an economic democracy which included both men and women. Some records point to an time-based human resource accounting through the string-shell integrating capital, currency, condolence (social-security), diplomatic conveyance (mostly concerning shared resource harvesting), collegial education (apprentice mentorship), math integrated communications, costume based group affiliation and other community values. The Great Law as a worldwidemutual-aid law once part of every people everywhere on earth, with all peoples having indigenous roots. We can rebirth ‘extended-home’ structures and community planning, where ‘economic-welcome’ is the pride and order for all. There is an ‘indigenous’ path to peace in our time based in the fractal of multihome dwelling.




    All of humanity including Canadians are caught in a never ending cycle of
    violence. We can understand solutions for this imbalance through looking at
    degradation of humanity’s universal indigenous practices. We must
    counterbalance the colonial propaganda, indoctrination lens of colonial written
    history which alienates all people from their ‘indigenous’ (Latin =
    ‘self-generating’) origins. We can learn again to look through the eyes of all
    of our universal indigenous heritage and today through indigenous peoples
    themselves and peace practices which kept humans in abundance, conviviality and peace for hundreds of thousands of years. Indigene Community compiles these functional aspects of indigenous heritage for sustainable development today.




    Humanity’s ‘Indigenous’ (Latin = ‘self-generating’) peoples / ancestors worldwide hold / held a Great Law of Peace based upon mutual-aid in all
    relations. The Great Law is based in three key ‘fractal’ aspects.


    1. multi-home family community organization where individual family privacy
    are important as well as intergenerational interdisciplinary proximity for
    interaction is enabled. There are several forms of multihomes but typically
    similar to Pueblo (townhouse-like) Longhouse (apartment-like). Indigenous
    community pride is based in the ability to extend welcome for all into the
    multihome with names such as ‘place of the extended rafters’.


    2. Time-based human resource accounting on the string-shell for inclusive
    universal progressive ownership from young apprentice to elder master integrated capital, currency, social-security, education other values. As both men women lived in proximity for common service provision, accounting included all ‘community’ (L ‘com’ = ‘together’ + ‘munus’ = ‘gift or services’) contributions.


    3. A constellation of checks and balances for a culture of peace and prosperity.


    4. Polyculture Orchard Food Production at 100 times (10,000%) more productive than 2-D ‘Agriculture’ (L ‘ager’ = ‘field’)


    5. ‘Dialectic-rights’ which guaranteed everyone the right to openly engage
    individuals or collective entities in ‘debate’ (French ‘de’ = ‘undo’ + ‘bate’ =
    ‘the fight’) typically in the circle of those affected by decisions at all
    levels from the family, extended home, production-society to village, region,
    nation, confederacy, continental and other levels.


    6. Mohandas Gandhi proposed ‘Satyagraha’ (Hindi = ‘Truth-search’) in his
    practice of asking all parties including those such as the violent British
    (including significant Canadian troops) occupiers who had participated in
    massacres of many thousands of people picnicking and in other civil occasions,
    “What are your best intentions and how can we help you fulfill these?
