Oklevueha “Earth Walks” Native American Church: Utah/ Lakota Sioux Native American Church, Rosebud Reservation, SD
Our Indigenous Heritage:
Indigenous spirituality has been practiced in North and South America before recorded history.
The fundamental premise of all indigenous spirituality is to honor and respect Grandmother Earth (Matriarchal), Grandfather Sky (Patriarchal) and all of their descendants.
The practicing of American Native indigenous spirituality is understood off and on Federally Recognized Indian Reservations as the Native American Church, which has been granted exclusive federal laws to recognize the spiritual ceremonies and to protect and maintain access to their sacred ceremonial grounds. American Native Spirituality has historically utilized Grandmother Earth’s minerals and plants to commune with the spirit world to assist their healing and personal empowering ceremonies.

As a result of your interest in our cause please consider our personal invitation to join a national movement in having all Federal and State Government Agencies exercise the principles of the First Amendment of the Bill of Rights and in more detail in the American Indian Religious Freedom Act and Religious Land Use and Institutionalized Persons Act of 2000 regarding the Native American Church (Native American Church).
The Native American Church has established precedent that all plants, trees, herbs, mushrooms and cactus produced by mother earth are considered Sacred and their use by the Native American Church are to be protected by the United States Judicial System. It has also been established that the United States Law enforcement agencies do not have any legal authority to question the racial make up of a Native American Church cardholder.
Please Note: Although we believe in the rights of Native Americans/ Native American Church to us sacraments which are at this time federally regulated such as Peyote, these sacraments are still in controversy and subject to erratic policy, interpretation and enforcement. There for until the matter is settled and all of our members able to be in compliance with both traditional rules and modern interpretation of the relevant statute we, Oklevueha NAC SomaVeda, Independent and free church organization and our subsidiaries, do not possess, use or distribute any federally regulated substances of any kind whosoever, unless located in a state where the right has been clearly and legally established. Nor do we use any controlled substances in any of our ONACS ceremony, practice or medicine. There are literally 10’s of thousands of sacred herbs and substances which are not controversial nor subject to any governmental authority that we can safely and wisely use.
The previous mentioned understandings are duly supported by the United States 10th Circuit Court of Appeals, State of Utah Supreme Court, to the United States Supreme Court. These unanimous rulings, by these courts, state clearly and concisely that any and all United States government agencies are to protect the Native American Church civil liberties.
The laws of the land also state very clearly the consequences for any government agency or one or more of its officials to conspire and/or under the color of law attempt to deny or violate the Native American Church of it’s civil liberties is a serious criminal offense.
