Pushing up the
The Creator and Changer
first made the world in the East. Then he slowly came westward,
creating as he came. With him he brought many
languages, and he gave a
different one to each group of humans 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. That's why there are so many
different Indian languages
These humans could not talk
together, but it happened that none them were pleased with the way the
Creator had made the world. The sky was
so low that the tall humans bumped their heads against it. Some times humans
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 humans should get together and try to push it up higher.
"We can do it," a
wise man of the council said, "if we all push
at the same time. We will need all the humans
and all the animals and all the
elks when we 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
That puzzled the men of
the council, but at last one of them suggested that 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
So the wise
men of the council sent that message to all the humans and animals
and birds and told them on what day they
were to lift the sky. Everyone made poles
from the giant fir trees to use in pushing
against the sky.
day for the sky lifting came. All the humans raised their
poles and touched the sky with them. Then the
wise men shouted, "Ya-hoh!" Everybody
pushed, and the sky moved up a little.
"Ya-hoh," the wise men shouted a second time, and everybody pushed with all his strength.
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
was in the place where it is now.
Since then, no one has bumped his
head against it, and no one has been able to climb into the
hunters had been chasing four
elks during all the meetings and did not
know about the
plan. Just as the humans 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
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!"

child by his
family elders to teach him what could be

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
created 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 Life - 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 Life 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
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 cooperation. Cooperation does not occur at the point
of a gun.
American social 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.
