Healing Mother Earth

The earth is our Mother, and the indigenous all over the world are bound by a sacred duty to honor, protect, and defend her. James Mooney is committed to this mission.

Preserving Accurate History

The misinformation and inaccurate retelling of the history of Native Americans is rampant across the country. One of James Mooney’s personal commitments is to right the wrongs, and tell the true story of the abuse and genocide perpetrated against the Native Americans.

Committed to Defending and Protecting the Legal Rights of the Native American Church

It is important to understand the on-going conspiracy to deprive the Native American Church of its civil liberties by various government agencies. Many laws have been passed designed to “protect” the rights of the Native Americans, but most of these laws have done them no favors, and have often been designed to thwart their freedoms. However, there have been unanimous state and federal higher court decisions which preserve and maintain the constitutional freedoms to worship and use indigenous ceremonies and sacraments to assist in the healing of mankind. 

James Mooney believes that it is through the Native American Church and its sovereign rights that any human can have access to all their constitutional rights.

James Mooney’s Spirituality

Along with walking the Native American path of spirituality, James considers himself a Christian and one who believes the Book of Mormon is a true description of the historical evolution of Christianity in the Americas.

James is the first Prior of The Priory of the Indigenous People, under the Grand Priory of the United States of America of the Hospitaller Order of Saint Lazarus of Jerusalem. When James was invested as Prior, the Supreme Grand Priory of the Order also issued a bill wherein it stated that ‘The Hospitaller Order of Saint Lazarus of Jerusalem will do its level best, both in the national US jurisdiction and also in the international forum, to promote and assist the plight and efforts of the modern day indigenous Native Americans in their long struggle to secure the rights and conditions which were forfeited throughout the years.’
