NAIC Is a Authorized and Genuine Native American Church Tribal Organization
Effective September 22, 2016 the elders of the Native American Indigenous Church Inc., a Florida nonprofit religious corporation and church, declared The NAIC as an Integrated Auxiliary of the Priory of Saving Grace directed by ministers and medicine persons Dr. Anthony James, Dr. Julie James and Daniel Kram as long as the trees and grass grow and rivers flow.
The founding charter declares that Dr. Anthony James is Chief Executive Officer and Julie James is President as long as they walk mother earth.
The NAIC Bylaws further states that The NAIC branch Church under the guidance of Dr. Anthony B. James and Dr. Julie James will receive all rights and protections that the spiritual and incorporated parent religious organizations Priory of Saving Grace, Sacred Medical Order Church of Hope and the Holy Apostolic Catholic Church of the East in America’s Chaldean-Syrian Rite receives. Although clearly SomaVeda Integrated Traditional Therapies® incorporates indigenous and traditional religious therapeutics, medicine theories and principles from North and South America, it’s origins are from the indigenous and traditional, tribal people of Asia and South East Asia. Indigenous peoples of any country, band, tribal or familial organization are free to incorporate indigenous and traditional medicines from anywhere they are found in the world, provided they do not violate any practices of integrity and are inherently in agreement or concordance with the honoring of spirit and Mother Earth.
All indigenous persons are children of Mother Earth. As the indigenous traditional religious therapeutic medicine practices of our Asian brothers and sisters have been offered to us in this spirit we choose to adopt certain of these practices and to incorporate them into our practice of healing. This Charter establishes SomaVeda Integrated Traditional Therapies® as a Bona Fide Traditionally based Native Indigenous Medicine and spiritual practice of the SomaVeda NAIC. We additionally honor ad respect the sovereign right of any particular tribe to determine the content, practices and traditions that they uniquely observe. We ask the same respect for the practices of our church.
