Native American Code Of Ethics

Rise with the sun to pray. Pray alone. Pray often.
The Great Spirit will listen, if you only speak.
*

Be tolerant of those who are lost on their path. Ignorance, conceit, anger,

jealousy and greed stem from a lost soul. Pray that they will find guidance.
*

Search for yourself, by yourself. Do not allow others
to make your path for you. It is your road, and yours alone.

*

Others may walk it with you,
but no one can walk it for you.
*
Treat the guests in your home with much consideration.
Serve them the best food, give them the best
bed and treat them with respect and honor.
*
Do not take what is not yours whether from
a person, a community, the wilderness or from a
culture. It was not earned nor given. It is not yours.
*
Respect all things that are placed upon
this earth – whether it be people or plant.
*
Honor other people’s thoughts, wishes and words.
Never interrupt another or mock or rudely mimic them.
Allow each person the right to personal expression.
*
Never speak of others in a bad way. The negative
energy that you put out into the universe
will multiply when it returns to you.
*
All persons make mistakes.
And all mistakes can be forgiven.
*
Bad thoughts cause illness of the mind,
body and spirit. Practice optimism.
*
Nature is not FOR us, it is a PART of us.
They are part of your worldly family.
*
Children are the seeds of our future. Plant
love in their hearts and water them with
wisdom and life’s lessons. When they
are grown, give them space to grow.
*
Avoid hurting the hearts of others.
The poison of your pain will return to you.
*
Be truthful at all times. Honesty is the
test of one’s will within this universe.
*
Keep yourself balanced. Your Mental self, Spiritual
self, Emotional self, and Physical self – all need
to be strong, pure and healthy. Work out
the body to strengthen the mind. Grow
rich in spirit to cure emotional ails.
*
Make conscious decisions as to who
you will be and how you will react. Be
responsible for your own actions.
*
Respect the privacy and personal space of
others. Do not touch the personal property of
others – especially sacred and religious
objects. This is forbidden.
*
Be true to yourself first. You cannot
nurture and help others if you cannot
nurture and help yourself first.
*
Respect others religious beliefs.
Do not force your belief on others.
*
Share your good fortune with others.
Participate in charity.
