largest Indian news source, posted my letter Revolution as a
comment to Steven Newcomb's ICTMN article
A Path for Indian Nations
to Liberate Themselves From U.S. Colonialism?

address indigenous peoples' issues. And he is one of the leaders of the global Indigenous decolonization movement.

My Mission To Retribalize The World
by Thomas Ivan Dahlheimer
The world renowned visionary Daniel Quinn is promoting a
revival of the 1960s counter-cultural revolution. He has a
website that receives 20,000 hit's a day. A review on the
back cover of his book "Beyond Civilization", published in
several languages, reads, "The retribalization of the
world: what a extraordinary possibility!" When referring
to lyrics by Bob Dyan, Quinn wrote: "Why things didn't end
up changin." He also wrote: "This time it'll be different."
I correspond with two of the leaders of the counter-cultural revolution:
Albert Bates, the spokesman for Stephen Gaskin's
world-renowned hippy community, and Skip Stone, the webmaster
of Hippyland, an interactive site with 225,000 members.
Stone has posted articles of mine about my retribalization
of the world, counter-cultural new age globalization mission,
as have also the webmasters of popular indigenous websites. I
also correspond with world renowned indigenous activists who
promote the tribal way and work with the United Nations.
In the late 1960s, one of the leaders of the revolution, Richard Carter,
and I, along with some other members of the Mr. & Mrs. I. C.
Rainbow family, my maternal kinship family, traveled,
together, to Wahkon, Minnesota to potentially establish a
Rainbow family, kinship tribal community. I am now trying
again to accomplish the goal of the original plan, "this time
it will be different," the Rainbow family community will be
established so that it can lead this peaceful revolution
There is support for the global indigenous decolonization movement
within the counter-culture's new age globalization movement. These
movements are quickly becoming a single unified movement. They both
promote the retribalization of the world, globalization paradigm.
And they are both opposed to the Marxist socialists' and Western
capitalists' globalization paradigms.
The capitalists of the American-led Western globalization movement
believe the individual is the primary unit of political measurement,
and individuals behave on the basis of rational self-interest.
To both the Marxists and indigenous people,
collective/group interests are the primary unit
of political measurement. The collective for Marxism
is class identification. For indigenous people it is
the kinship tribe within the local ecosystems in which
the various tribes live. They believe that humanity
belongs to a natural ecosystem, kinship tribalism
being an important part of it, and that humanity must
shape its behavior accordingly to restore the natural
balance and end the global ecological crisis.
For indigenous people, kinship (tribal) collective
rationality within an ecocentric value system, and not
individual, nor (class) collective rationality within
an anthropocentric value system, should be the driving
force behind human behavior.
Indigenous societies the world over share a common
past and are now establishing, with the help of the
United Nations, a plan for a decolonized future. This
plan, influenced by the UN and counter-cultural activists,
will promote a set of values and assumptions which will
radically change the entire global system and usher in
a new age and new world order
