Lawrence R. Twain - The Law Hawk,
Traditional WorkFAIR Warrior and Co-Ordinator

The Law Hawk (Lawrence Twain)
Traditional Elder from Makominising (Bear island) on lake Temagami in North-Eastern Ontario,Canada

"As an individual, Spiritual Gifts were given to me by the Great Mystery. I brought forward the Wisdom Wheel to the general public as a result of listening to the teachings of our Clan Mothers, Clan Pipe Carriers and Clan Elders. "

"Original Peoples Work Fair presents teachings of our Traditional Clan Mothers, Traditional Elders and Traditional Pipe Carrier to let the whole world know that our Native philosophy is still very much alive, as always. Our Clan Mothers, Clan Elders and Clan Pipe Carriers have been, since the beginning of the human race, the teachers of good living and methods of creating respect for one another. "

For fifteen (15) years, Lawrence Twain of Bear Island has been promoting a vision for an alternative to current welfare, unemployment and healing based upon the principles and traditions of original peoples, yet inclusive of other cultures. This promotional campaign finally developed into a project to develop a program of healing services and resources. These encompassed such activities as after care, healing circles and possibly, a healing lodge.

Wisdom Wheel

The Wisdom Wheel puts into motion our Traditional Programs based on the following definition:

Our Wisdom Wheel represents spirituality and is located outside the Circle. The Cross within the Circle that puts our Wisdom Wheel into motion represents Jesus Christ, the Great Mystery's only begotten son, sent to mankind by the Great Mystery. Within the Circle is the foundation of principles and help any other race of people who chooses to honor the Wisdom Wheel teachings. The Great Mystery provides an organizational structure for the Native peoples, describing the way to lead a life of principles.

Our Wisdom Wheel produces our Traditional Purification Lodges and our Traditional Purification Circles. Within these lodges and circles, the teachings are non-political; there is no cross talk. When a person leaves the doorway of the Lodge/Circle, he/she may take his/her experience in the lodge or circle but not that of anyone else's experience. Personal experiences are shared then; there is cross talk, which produces the organizational structure to address concerns that affect us.

The Wisdom Wheel is here to help us to help the animal people, the tree people, the water people, the winged people and the stone people. This is how the Native people share their Native philosophy based on the teachings of the Wisdom Wheel.

Our Wisdom Wheel is our organizational structure to create employment opportunities and produce an economically sound format to deal constructively with the production, distribution and consumption of MotherEarth's natural resources and the management of income and expenditure.
The following are our natural resources:
  1. Stone People
  2. Water People
  3. Winged People
  4. Tree People
  5. Animal People
  6. Red, Yellow, Black and White People

Our knowledge of natural/physical phenomena and ordered arrangement of facts known under classes or heads (Family Heads) deals with the production of MotherEarth's natural resources, and the management of state proceeds and expenditures. Human beings are but one of our natural resources.

Original Peoples Work Fair Principles and Traditions, through cooperation in the Spirit, builds life skills and, as a separate spiritual entity, supports a wide range of innovation-related activities based on our Wisdom Wheel. Our Wisdom Wheel, which fosters community development in a practical sense, will also provide for the greater part of society the benefits of the Wisdom Wheel to science.
It makes changes by introducing something new to others. Native people, the Original people who have been living on Turtle Island since the birth of mankind have practiced it.

There are thirteen (13) components of Truth related to the Human Wisdom Wheel that include the following:
  • Learn the Truth
  • Honor the Truth
  • Know the Truth
  • See the Truth
  • Hear the Truth
  • Speak the Truth
  • Love the Truth
  • Serve the Truth
  • Live the Truth
  • Work the Truth
  • Share the Truth
  • Thank the Truth
The boundary assures lack and limitation. Lack is the want; need is the limitation. The Wisdom Wheel is Our Key-Vehicle which embraces all living forms of life to establish Unity between All Peoples upon MotherEarth.

How The Wisdom Wheel produces an organizational structure (WorkFAIR).

The Great Mystery

Since the beginning of time each culture responded to the magnetic attraction exerted by earth harmony. People and creature beings settled in specific places where earth harmony was most compatible and comfortable to their nature and growth.

Ancient people followed their instinctive yearning by giving over to the mysterious energy that attracted them. The call this energy "The Great Mystery". They responded to this attraction intuitively, emotionally, mentally and physically. As races developed, they discovered energy sites upon which they built their special places called sanctuaries because they were energy vortexes. These sites formed a grid that linked all beings into wholeness and induced their gifts to flow unhindered throughout their world.

The Higher Consciousness, or the Great Mystery, the ultimate authority, governs our group conscience. To connect with God, we need to open our conscious and subconscious mind to a Higher Consciousness, one that is available to each of us. This, in turn, produces consensus to work hand in hand with you, as a separate spiritual entity.

What is the Mythological Philosophy of Love, Truth and Peace?

Mythological Philosophy is an ancient conception of earth connection based on Love, Truth, and Peace within.

Mythological Philosophy states that every entity is part of an interrelated energy of wholeness: One Body, One Heart, One Mind, One Spirit, and One Law. Myth is the creativity. Logic is the true form. Philosophy is earth law. Mythological Philosophy has no separation. The earth is the Mother. All life emerges from her and returns to her. Mythological Philosophy fosters family relationships. When Natives say, "all my relations", they mean all the elements: plants, animals, birds, fish, crawling creatures, and human beings. Therefore, humankind has no dominion over other earth beings.

Since Mythological Philosophy is Earth Connection based on Love, Truth and Peace, and all life forms have a responsibility that demands self-respect, then Mythological Philosophy is the practice of interrelationships of all earth inhabitants. Thus, the axiom, "All My Relations." "All My Relations" means being endowed with Love, Truth and Peace as a legacy.

The Clan System of Sovereignty

Among the Aborigines of the Americas, the Council Rings, the Sacred Hoops, the Medicine Wheels, the Sacred Places and the Medicine Clans were expressions of earth harmony that guided their everyday practices of life.

Mythological Philosophy is the Clan System of Sovereignty that provides the family image of wholeness from which there is no separation. The holistic family protectors are:

Grandfather Sun who lights the world by day
Grandmother Moon who lights the world by night
Father Sky who supports all the planets of the Uniworld
MotherEarth who provides survival for all earth families each one of whom is responsible for the reproduction of life seven generations into the future.

Mythological Philosophy inculcates the dreams for learning about survival. This process lays the foundation of survival for every earth species. Therefore, Mythological Philosophy defines, regulates and refines the sovereignty of the Clan System to maintain everlasting purity for all living entities for time eternal.

Growth introduces stepping stones of talents
Developing of skills maintains the balance
Achievements create every rhythm and rhyme
Relationships survive the passing of time.
