The Misignwa Tribe was establish for people that want to come back to a more natural and less impacting form of living.
The name Misignwa come from an ancient Shawnee creature (or spirit) that protects the creatures of the forest. The Misignwa watches the people that use the forest and makes sure that they are respectful and not wasteful. The Misignwa resembles the creature today that some call Bigfoot or Sasquatch.
The Misignwa Tribe is not affiliated with any Native American tribe but uses the name to pay respect to the culture that was the caretaker of the land for so long. We do not try to convince you to change your lifestyle, only want you to become more aware of the impact you have on your own body and mind, other peoples body and mind, and on the Earth. The choice is yours on how you want to live while at the tribes camp and away from it.
The Misignwa Tribe is not affiliated with any religious or political body but does encourage members to educate others in a spiritual and political way. We refrain from protesting, instead our life at the tribe is our protest and we can educate others on the dangers of living the carefree and unhealthy lifestyle that most of the modern world live.
Anybody is welcomed to stay with the Misignwa Tribe for any length of time but we do have a few simple rules that must be followed while part of the tribe or while at any tribal camp:
1.] Do no harm to other people.
2.] Do not harm other living things.
3.] Do not harm the Earth itself.
4.] Everything that is provided by the Earth is free. Fair payment for labor services, cooking, and crafting is allowed but charging a fee for the resource itself is prohibited.
5.] Any dispute that cannot be resolved with a fair agreement must immediately be brought to the attention of the entire group.
6.] All members or residents must participate in any community projects approved by consensus of the entire group.
