The discovery in 1858 of the Comstock Lode in
* * *
Eight generations later, in a modern little town near Lake Tahoe, (‘dá’aw,’ in the Washo language,) about a day’s ride on horseback from that silver strike, a young Washo man named Art George, Jr., lived according to the old ways, and walked the path he had walked with his father, learning the path the elders told about, in their stories of his people.
He had important help to give his people; and began doing his part to bring harmony with spirit back to his people. He was guided to give his vision to his people, and the song came from his lips and words began to flow.
One day Art knew the words were right, these prayerful, heartfelt, mindful words, and began to shape them into a document rooted in the rights and freedoms and responsibilities of his culture, and relevant to humanity at large.
On the anniversary of his father's birth, this young man's prayers were answered in a most meaningful way: into his hands was delivered this powerful document which deserves focused attention, Declaration by Indigenous People of the World.
As tends to happen with timely things, the spirit of the Declaration "grew wings," and the local newspaper picked up the story.
