Over the weekend, the Sedona community learned of the death of Tony Carito. Carito was not an elected official, nor the director of any nonprofit charity, but he was an integral part of our community — he was a philanthropist of spirit. A Sedona resident since 1984, Carito was a colorful figure, often bedecked in bright clothes and a colorful variety of scarves, fedoras and berets. As the city’s unofficial “Minister of Fun,” he personified the complicated interplay that is Sedona: A little artsy, a little musical, a little New Agey, a little magical, a little theatrical but always light-hearted with a smile on his face. He reminded those who have grown cynical over the years that they still call Sedona home and that alone is worth smiling about because this is a beautiful city in which to live.
This dirty little secret (of the intimate connection between farmers' sprays and chemical weapons) makes the owners of pesticides nervous, always hiding the nature of their products. After all, how could you spray your food with cousins of chemical warfare agents without deception? This deception includes the thorough corruption of the EPA. Under the guns of polluters, White House and Congressional lobbyists, and the fig leaf of science, EPA, as if by magic, transforms biocidal stuff into harmless sprays. EPA approves pesticides on the basis of shoddy evidence of potential harm or safety. Despite the twentieth century history of private pesticide lab fraud, chemical companies are still allowed to "test" their own products. But the "tested" and extremely problematic pesticide "active ingredient" is not exactly the pesticide ingredient farmers spray. Farmers spray that product wrapped with a variety of other tested and untested toxic chemicals, which EPA, perversely, calls "inerts."
From looking at the expenditures of each year, it’s clear that Burning Man has pulled in well over tens of millions of dollars in each recent year. Combined with the amount of money each of the 50,000+ annual festival-goers spend on gas, food, art supplies, and other preparations, the amount of money and resources spent on this 8-day festival of Burning Man is ASTONISHING… But then what? Could it be put to better use? What if, instead of one short-lived, albeit generally well-meaning, annual party, that money was put toward creating a progressive, technologically sustainable community that could sustain numerous festivals? What if this community operated with open source information/collaboration technology, green tech designs with little to zero ecological footprints, scientifically optimized products for sustainable solutions coming in to greater balance with nature, free innovative education, spiritual and psychological awareness, and free, clean energy? Imagine what could be accom

The Sedona Source Center has personally invited you and other key people, organizations, businesses and media in the Northern Arizona community to become members at no cost except 15 minutes of your time to set-up your profile and "My Portal" website.
This is a powerful communications and networking toolkit, an online forum and social media portal for you exchange ideas, share media and build projects together.
Because we're local we enjoy face-to-face community gatherings periodically in addition to our on-line network. The purpose of this and all our other "Source Centers" is to create a comprehensive "Source Directory" for the emerging culture in the areas of business, green entrepreneurship, sustainable living, health and wellness, and spiritual and metaphysical.
Additionally we operate a small news/media organization that emphasizes sustainability and community values featuring user-generated content (e.g., blogs, videos, photos, music, events) selected from the Internet.
This giant leap forward is nothing less than a miraculous resynchronization of our own conscious evolution for the future!

“Live life fully while you're here. Experience everything. Take care of yourself and your friends. Have fun, be crazy, be weird. Go out and screw up! You're going to anyway, so you might as well enjoy the process. Take the opportunity to learn from your mistakes: find the cause of your problem and eliminate it. Don't try to be perfect; just be an excellent example of being human.” - Anthony Robbins

In 2007, photographer Adrain Chesser went to a traditional Native American ceremony called the Naraya when he was having a tough time in the wake of his mother's death.While there, Chesser became acquainted with Finisia Medrano and J.P. Hartsong, who both lived as hunter-gatherers in the Great Basin, a part of the United States encompassing parts of Nevada, Utah, Oregon, and California.
Rare video footage of the first contact with a group of uncontacted Indians near the Brazil-Peru border has emerged alongside new accounts of horrific violence against their community, prompting experts to call for the urgent protection of their land or risk their “extermination” and “genocide”.
This interactive map, produced by University of Georgia historian Claudio Saunt to accompany his new book West of the Revolution: An Uncommon History of 1776, offers a time-lapse vision of the transfer of Indian land between 1776 and 1887. As blue “Indian homelands” disappear, small red areas appear, indicating the establishment of reservations.
We as the freedom loving Lakotah People are the predecessor sovereign of Dakota Territory as evidenced by the Treaties with the United States Government, including, but not limited to, the Treaty of 1851 and the Treaty of 1868 at Fort Laramie. Lakotah, formally and unilaterally withdraws from all agreements and treaties imposed by the United States Government on the Lakotah People. Lakotah , and the population therein, have waited for at least 155 years for the United States of America to adhere to the provisions of the above referenced treaties. The continuing violations of these treaties’ terms have resulted in the near annihilation of our people physically, spiritually, and culturally. Lakotah rejects United States Termination By Appropriation policy from 1871 to the present.
In December of 2007, the Republic of Lakotah was formed by the formal withdrawal from its Treaties of 1851 and 1868. This was the latest step in the longest running legal battle in the history of the World. This was not a “cessation” from the United States, but a completely lawful “unilateral withdrawal” from the Treaties as permitted under the 1969 Vienna Convention on the Law of Treaties, of which, the United States is a signatory.
