Original Sovereign Tribal Federation

Picture

A major purpose of the Original Sovereign Tribal Federation is to unite Original society nationally. This purpose comes about through the vision to re-dignify relations with self and between genders and clans.

“National unity through the OSTF provides a foundation for practical, ethical and cultural practices from which to reach out to non-indigenous society.”

Underlain by the cultural responsibilities of Original Law that has been the stabilizing force of Original society for ten’s of thousands of years and the support of Ancestors who have gone before, OSTF enables a development of cultural law to uphold a new paradigm of caring for people and country in this post-modern era.

The OSTF is on the edge between traditional Original society and postmodern Australian society. The ‘Edge’ is a term for a transition zone between, for example, ecologies, cultures, paradigms, trade or geographical boundaries. In ecological terms, the edge is the place that is richest in species, habitats and interactions because it is the interface between two environments.

The Original Sovereign Tribal Federation is poised on an intercultural boundary, rich in possibility for the development of modern Original culture as an integral part of a holistic vision for all Australians.

A catalyst for the OSTF is the discontent arising from numerous, ineffectual assimilation policies perpetrated under British Sovereign law, since the illegal settlement of Australia by Britain over 200 years ago.

Ineffectual from an Original viewpoint because the patent disregard of settlers towards the oldest continuous culture on Earth; born of ignorance, self-interest and avarice, produced tragic hardship, inequality and abasement of the physical and cultural dignity of a whole people.

Ineffectual from a settler perspective, because the British and Christianizing agendas have failed to assimilate the traditional Original culture.

Two hundred years on, intercultural relations remain generally fraught, frustrated and confrontational.

While thousands of scholars, governmental and non-governmental representatives have worked for decades, and billions of dollars have been spent, on researching, studying and planning numerous solutions, policies and practices, the intercultural edge remains chaotic and unsatisfying for both settlers and Origines.

Intractable problems and issues regarding rights to land/country, health, representation and cultural expression continue to abrade national moral integrity. Degradation of spirit abounds on both sides of the cultural divide.

National Original unity through the OSTF Treaty provides a foundation of practical, ethical and cultural practices from which Original society can reach out to non-indigenous society and take its place as a vital and invaluable contributor to Australian society and the global community.

The stabilisation of Original society by its peoples, feeds country, re-vitalizes relationships and re-dignifies life. As this renewal of country and peoples occurs, the cultural re-empowerment filters across the intercultural boundary, changing attitudes and behaviours in non-original society by osmosis.

OSTF would like to extend an invitation to your community to provide a venue and receive OSTF on behalf of your local community so as to inform our traditional elders of the sovereignty process currently being offered around remote parts of this continent.

Please view the work OSTF has been involved with recently,  as documented by Mirrial Arc-Hive Media  the Production and Archival arm to OSTF which has been filming and documenting this historical process.

OSTF is eager to establish contacts in remote locations and communities with the result being that there will be a community host to receive OSTF.

With community support we are hoping to establish bloodline connection to country so as to create a Treaty with OSTF to assist in reconvening of parliaments on traditional lands.

Should you know of relevant bloodline elders and/or event organisers to deliver this important message of freedom and opportunity to reconvene tribal parliaments.

Message from White Eagle, Hopi indigenous on 03/16/2020

VISION QUEST

“This moment humanity is going through can now be seen as a portal and as a hole.

The decision to fall into the hole or go through the portal is up to you.

If you repent of the problem and consume the news 24 hours a day, with little energy, nervous all the time, with pessimism, you will fall into the hole. But if you take this opportunity to look at yourself, rethink life and death, take care of yourself and others, you will cross the portal.

Take care of your homes, take care of your body. Connect with your spiritual House.

When you are taking care of yourselves, you are taking care of everything else. Do not lose the spiritual dimension of this crisis, have the eagle aspect, that from above, and see the whole; see more broadly.

There is a social demand in this crisis, but there is also a spiritual demand. The two go hand in hand. Without the social dimension, we fall into fanaticism. But without the spiritual dimension, we fall into pessimism and lack of meaning.

You were prepared to go through this crisis. Take your toolbox and use all the tools available to you.

Learn about resistance of the indigenous and African peoples: we have always been and continue to be exterminated. But we still haven’t stopped singing, dancing, lighting a fire and having fun. Don’t feel guilty about being happy during this difficult time.

You do not help at all being sad and without energy. You help if good things emanate from the Universe now. It is through joy that one resists. Also, when the storm passes, each of you will be very important in the reconstruction of this new world.

You need to be well and strong. And, for that, there is no other way than to maintain a beautiful, happy and bright vibration. This has nothing to do with alienation.

This is a resistance strategy. In shamanism, there is a rite of passage called the quest for vision. You spend a few days alone in the forest, without water, without food, without protection. When you cross this portal, you get a new vision of the world, because you have faced your fears, your difficulties …

This is what is asked of you:

Allow yourself to take advantage of this time to perform your vision seeking rituals. What world do you want to build for you? For now, this is what you can do: serenity in the storm. Calm down, pray every day. Establish a routine to meet the sacred every day.

Good things emanate; what you emanate now is the most important thing. And sing, dance, resist through art, joy, faith and love. ”
Resist – Be reborn

What is Tatanka

What Is “Tatanka”?
In the Lakota language, the word “tatanka” is translated as “buffalo” or “buffalo bull.” However, according to native Lakota speakers, the literal translation is something more like “He who owns us.” Lakota elder Birgil Kills Straight explains it this way:

“The four-leggeds came before the two-leggeds. They are our older brother, we came from them. Before them, we were the root people. We came from them. We are the same thing. That is why we are spiritually related to them. We call them in our language “Tatanka,” which means “He Who Owns Us.” We cannot say that we own the buffalo because he owns us.1

Today, “bison” is considered to be the correct name for the species. Though both “buffalo” and “bison” are widely accepted and are often used interchangeably, the scientific name for the species is “bison bison.” The term “buffalo” is more frequently used in American Indian communities, especially when referring to the buffalo in its cultural context.

In Lakota, “tanka” means “great” or “large.” The name Tanka Fund represents both our focus on the significant and positive impact of buffalo restoration in Indian communities as well as our partnership with Native American Natural Foods, makers of the Tanka Bar.

History of the Buffalo Nation
The importance of the buffalo to Indian people throughout North American cannot be overstated. Before the colonization of the continent and the buffalo’s near extermination, the buffalo was an integral part of daily life. Nearly all activities, such as hunting, cooking, sewing, making art, teaching, praying, singing and celebrating, incorporated and honored the buffalo.

Buffalo are the subject of many traditional stories and are a central part of the religious and cultural practices of many Indian nations across the Great Plains. [More information here.] According to Karlene Hunter, Oglala Lakota, “The history of the Buffalo Nation and the Lakota Nation is so intertwined as to be almost indistinguishable.”

Skull of Buffalo

This “intertwined” history was dramatically illustrated in the latter half of the 19th century. During this dark period, the U.S. government initiated a policy of removal, forcibly relocating Indian people to established reservations across the country. At the same time, European settlers and the U.S. military launched an all-out attack on the buffalo, the primary source of food, clothing, and shelter for Indian people in the Great Plains at the time. The military’s position concerning buffalo was brutally stated by General Phillip S. Sheridan, who said: “If I could learn that every buffalo in the northern herd were killed I would be glad…The destruction of the herd would do more to keep Indians quiet than anything else that could happen.”2

In the short span of 30 years, the North American buffalo population went from approximately 50 million to one small herd that at the time found refuge in what is now Yellowstone National Park. During this dark period in American history, not only were the buffalo almost exterminated, but an entire lifestyle and Buffalo-based culture that had existed for thousands of years were nearly destroyed.

Buffalo Are Returning
Many Indian people see the return of buffalo as a positive sign. According to Lakota leader and prophet Black Elk (1863-1950), when the buffalo return, the “Sacred Hoop” will be mended and Indian nations will become strong again. Working together with Native American Natural Foods and many other partners throughout Indian Country, we hope to build broad support for this vision so we can help to bring renewed life and strength to Buffalo-based Indian communities.

There are many good sources of information on the history and cultural significance of buffalo. Here are just a few:
