Pushing up the Sky
The Creator and
Changer first made the world in the East.
Then he slowly came westward,
creating as he came.
him he brought many languages, and he gave a different one to each group of
people he made.
When he reached Puget Sound, he liked it so well
that he decided to go no further.
But he had many languages left, so he
scattered them all around Puget Sound and to the north.
there are so many different Indian languages spoken there.
These people could not talk together,
but it happened that none them were pleased with the way the Creator had made
The sky was
so low that the tall people bumped their heads against it.
times people would do what was forbidden by climbing up high in the trees and,
learning their own words,
enter the Sky World.
Finally the wise men of all the different tribes had a meeting to see
what they could do about lifting the sky.
They agreed that the people should get together and try to push it up
"We can do it," a wise
councilman said, "if we all push at the same time.
We will need
all the people and
all the animals and
all the elks to push."
"How will we know
when to push?" asked another of the wise men.
"Some of us live in this part of the
world, some in another. We don't all talk the same languages.
How can we get everyone to push at
the same time?"
puzzled the men of the
council, at last one suggested they use a signal.
When the time
comes for us to push, when we have everything ready, let someone shout
'Ya-hoh.' That means 'Lift together!' in all our languages."
wise men of the council sent that message to all the people and animals and
birds and told them on what day they were to lift the sky.
poles from giant fir trees to use in pushing against the sky.
for the sky lifting came.
All the people raised their poles and touched
the sky with them.
Then the wise men shouted, "Ya-hoh!"
Everybody pushed, and
the sky moved up a
"Ya-hoh," the wise men shouted a second time, and everybody
The sky moved a few inches more.
"Ya-hoh," all shouted,
and pushed as hard as they could push.
They kept on shouting "Ya-hoh"
and pushing until the sky fell in place.
Since then, no one has bumped
his head against it, and no one has been able to climb into the Sky World.
Now, three hunters had been chasing four elks during all the meetings
and did not know about the plan.
Just as the people and animals and
birds were ready to push the sky up, the three hunters and the four elks came
to the place where the Earth nearly meets the sky.
The jumped into the
Sky World, and the hunters ran after them.
When the sky was lifted,
elks and hunters were lifted too.
In the Sky World they were changed
into stars, and at night even now your see them.
The three hunters form
the handle of the Big Dipper.
The middle hunter has his dog with him,
now a tiny star.
The four elks make the bowl of the Big Dipper.
We still shout "Ya-hoh!" when doing hard work
together or lifting something heavy like a canoe.
When we say "Hoh!"
all of us use all the strength we have.
Our voices have a higher pitch
on that part of the word, and we make
the 0 very long - "Ya-hooooh!"

This web site is not a commercial web site and
is presented for educational purposes only.
This website defines a
new perspective with which to engage reality to which its author adheres. The
author feels that the falsification of reality outside personal experience has
forged a populace unable to discern propaganda from reality and that this has
been done purposefully by an international corporate cartel through their
agents who wish to foist a corrupt version of reality on the human race.
Religious intolerance occurs when any group refuses to tolerate religious
practices, religious beliefs or persons due to their religious ideology. This
web site marks the founding of a system of philosophy named The Truth of the
Way of the Lumière Infinie - a rational gnostic mystery religion based
on reason which requires no leap of faith, accepts no tithes, has no supreme
leader, no church buildings and in which each and every individual is
encouraged to develop a personal relation with the Creator and Sustainer
through the pursuit of the knowledge of reality in the hope of curing the
spiritual corruption that has enveloped the human spirit. The tenets of The
Truth of the Way of the Lumière Infinie are spelled out in detail on
this web site by the author. Violent acts against individuals due to their
religious beliefs in America is considered a "hate crime."
This web site
in no way condones violence. To the contrary the intent here is to reduce the
violence that is already occurring due to the international corporate cartels
desire to control the human race. The international corporate cartel already
controls the world central banking system, corporate media worldwide, the
global industrial military entertainment complex of America and is responsible
for the collapse of morals, the elevation of self-centered behavior and the
destruction of global ecosystems. Civilization is based on coöperation.
Coöperation does not occur at the point of a gun.
mores and values have declined precipitously over the last century as the
corrupt international cartel has garnered more and more power. This power rests
in the ability to deceive the populace in general through corporate media by
pressing emotional buttons which have been preprogrammed into the population
through prior corporate media psychological operations. The results have been
the destruction of the family and the destruction of social structures that do
not adhere to the corrupt international elites vision of
a perfect world. Through
distraction and coercion the direction of thought of the bulk of the population
has been directed toward solutions proposed by the corrupt international elite
that further consolidates their power and which further their purposes.
