Raising Awareness and Understanding of Traditional Timekeeping

Welcome to Earth Timekeepers

As civilization crises and planetary crises build up, Indigenous Peoples from all over the world –and particularly from the Americas– have been getting organized to receive the new time –expected with the advent of 2012. The purpose of this initiative is to bring together indigenous leaders and timekeepers from Turtle Island-North America, Anahuac-Mexico and Central America, and Tawantinsuyo-South America. The aim is to share principles, values and wisdom about harmonious ways of living with natural cycles. We want to have a shared understanding about the implications of the New Dawn as Indigenous Peoples. We want to ensure that the leaders of our communities share their concerns about how we can achieve a good life when the rainy seasons are so irregular and unpredictable and when initiatives of development and investment disrupt the tranquility of the ecosystems in our territories.

Timekeepers will promote the principles and values of the wisdom contained in the ancestral understanding of cycles of time for life. This kind of wisdom is called Lifecycle Living.
