Dear Editor,

“We the people of the Far North are in great need of the support of the traditional leaders from the Four Directions to help us regain our spiritual strength in the face of rapidly changing times. With our land radically transforming in the face of climate change, we send you this call.”

On July 17, 2009, we, the Elders of Greenland are lighting the Sacred Fire in our homeland as a fulfillment of an ancient prophecy that one day, when the world needs it most, the Sacred Fire will once again return to Greenland.
