OPINET is an ally of empowerment of the Indigenous Peoples of Mother Earth, as an advocate for a collaborative, co-creative network of unified planetary consciousness, to restore sacred sites, preserve culture & language, to educate & inspire for a thriving, just, and sustainable world!
Welcome to OPINET the ways of an inward journey in these times require our networks/teams/groups/communities/family and tribes. This is where we will meet the change finding our indigenous roots (local and original to a specific geographical location) and with this knowledge and wisdom, we connect and share our passion with others in this space in time.
The global situation is calling for a shift in consciousness. We find ourselves in the VOID, a space where we can let go of the old and create anew. It is time to come together as a collective and walk our prayers of peace for ourselves, others, our planet, our air, water, lands, and passions. We invite you to join us in co-creating a peaceful world from a higher vibrational state. Let us unite our intentions and manifest a new reality filled with love, harmony, and compassion. Together, we can bring about a brighter future for all.
Nature speaks through our voices, the animal kingdom, listens through sacred sounds heard through our ears, the elements, we feel through our fingers and through the energy of prayer, tasting the essence of life, through our lips and speak our truths, through our hearts... everything is connected in this way.
Through this model we have been connecting organizations, to build a global ecosystem of networks, to stand together as one, strong and powerful.
The time has come to look at those around you, not at the ones holding onto the river's edge but those like you, who are free-floating down this rapidly increasing river...acknowledging who is beside you! You are the Ones we have been waiting for!

Open Path Indigenous Network came to be after Sensei Rev Hanayo vision in 2010, during a 3 month stay Pine mushroom pick in the surrounding area of the Nisga'a Village of Gitwinksihlkw.
Amoungst the mossy covered mushrooms, the mycelium spoke of the interconnection of all things. The value of sacred eco systems and their inter-dependance gave birth to OPINET ~ naming by now transitioned Joesph Mark Cohen of the Star People.
A group of 5 came together to co-create the leylines of these portals of sacred sites, showing us the root system of these connections. Founding Members: Barb, Terry, Hanayo, Cory, Saria on a sunny weekend in Sylvan Lake, Alberta Canada at the Healing House with guidance and vision of the Grandmother of Snake Lake. In the following years we were joined by Sonja, Jaro, Daniella and the Ministers of Earth based ways of Walking Prayer, and the many community collaborators listed below on this amazing and powerful reunion of sacred souls.
We are always ready to welcome you to join in bringing in these amazing and powerful sacred prayers, ceremonies
Chief says, "The whole point of this is to share some very important things that will help you during these changing times on
Mother Earth.” From the perspective of the Lakota spiritual teachings and the original instruction, he explains why our Star
Nation Relatives have been visiting us, that they have a special purpose today. Izzy shares many of his own spiritual
experiences as an example of the path that awaits all of us - if we would embark on the spiritual journey. For decades, Chief has
shared the urgency of making that change of life, choosing that inner spiritual journey; warning us to start learning and beprepared for difficult times that lay ahead.
According to Lakota oral history, the Creation story begins in the Black Hills; the Lakota name is "The Heart of Everything That
Is". The Creator put all of the Sacred into "The Heart of Everything That Is", and then he gave the responsibility to the Lakotas to
take care of it for Him. This sacred place belongs to Him, not the people
It is OPINET and Rev Hanayo's honour and priveldge joining to coordination and business team, so much more to come.

“Rooted in the sacred story of the Red People in our genesis, we are building a new Turtle Lodge in one of our most sacred sites of Manitou Api. This Lodge will be the Peoples’ Lodge, intended to unite all peoples of the world to experience the spiritual connection that we as the First Peoples have with the land, the common bond that ties us all together. We are all children of Mother Earth, and she will be the one to correct and teach us.”

We miss you dearly and speak to you often.
Buddhi Maya Lama, also known as Aama Bambo (Mother Shaman), was born July 16, 1943 in the remote village of Melong in the Eastern part of the Bagmati Zone, Nepal. Her father was a renowned shaman in the Nepalese Tamang tradition. Aama became a shaman despite the Tamang tradition that women are not supposed to practice shamanism. In the early days, her father restricted her in every way from practicing shamanism. However, when her father died at the age of eighty, his spirits and other gods and spirits started visiting and teaching her to be a shaman, against the prevailing cultural values of Tamang society.
She is the only woman to have ever been accepted into the highest order of shamans in Nepal – and she was even selected for a trip recently to meet with other shamans in Africa. Aama’s prayers began daily at 3:00 am until sunrise, in her walking prayer near the famous Boudhanath Temple, in Kathmandu, near her home where she then proceeded to treat around 100 patients every morning, with patients who had visited her locally from around the country, India and Tibet and renown, as far away as Canada, USA, Australia, China and Europe. She does not discriminate against those she heals, treating the poorest of the poor and the Royal Family of Nepal with equal dedication and respect.

“As you move through these changing times be easy in yourself and be easy on one other. You are at the beginning of something new. You are learning a new way of being. You will find yourself working less in the yang modes that you are used to.
You will stop working so hard at getting from point A to point B the way you have in the past, but instead, will spend more time experiencing yourself in the whole, and your place in it.
Instead of travelling to a goal out there, you will voyage deeper into yourself. You Mother’s Grandmother knew how to do this. Your ancestors from long ago knew how to do this. They know the power of the feminine principle and because you carry their DNA in your body, this wisdom and way of being is within you.
Call on it. Call it up. Invite your ancestors in. As the yang based habits and the decaying institutions on our planet begin to crumble, look up. A breeze is stirring. Feel the sun on your wings.”
The International Council of 13 Indigenous Grandmother’s represents a global alliance of prayer, education and healing for Mother Earth and all her inhabitants for the next 7 generations to come. They believe the teachings of our ancestors will light the way through an uncertain future and are on a mission to protect their cultures, medicines, lands, language and ceremonial ways through projects that educate and nurture our children.
It has been OPINET and Rev Hanayo's honour and priveldge to be of service in this powerful prayer of the Grandmothers over their 14 years of travelling prayer.
On September 13th and 14th, 2014, in the Black Hills of South Dakota, thousands of people converged for a UNITY CONCERT, bringing together Native American tribes with those on the right side of justice to return the guardianship of the Black Hills to the Great Sioux Nation.
It has been OPINET's honour and a priveldge coordinating and develping this initiatve for the four years.
To honor the circle of Life, the sacredness of all Creation and in gratitude for all that we have been given, we celebrate in music and prayer for the fourth and final year in the sacred Black Hills. Thousands of native and non-native peoples came together in South Dakota for The Black Hills Unity Concert in 2014, 2015 and 2016. These three extraordinary free gatherings were held in the name of cultural reconciliation and environmental restoration.
In 2017, Sept 8-10, we gather in Piedmont, South Dakota once again. We invite you to be a part of this honorable event! Given the political environment of today and the challenges we see in the Black Hills, this coming together promises to be like no other. The good seeds of unity, truth and compassion have been planted in so many ways over these past four years. Now we give thanks and encourage our family to keep holding each other high.
We gather under the protection of indigenous ceremony and knowledge, to bring hope and unity among the different tribes of the Lakota, Nakota and Dakota (traditionally known as the Oceti Sakowin) and to raise voices for the return of the sacred lands of the Black Hills. Furthermore, the gatherings create a space for urgent social and environmental issues to be voiced and create invaluable alliances for the future. In addition to three days of musical celebration with top native and non-native talent, we achieve our objectives by offering speakers and workshops, space and time for elder meetings and an innovative youth program.
The Standing Rock Reservation (Lakota: Íŋyaŋ Woslál Háŋ) lies across the border between North and South Dakota in the United States, and is inhabited by ethnic "Hunkpapa and Sihasapa bands of Lakota Oyate and the Ihunktuwona and Pabaksa bands of the Dakota Oyate," as well as the Hunkpatina
The Dakota Access pipeline (DAPL) is a $3.7bn project that would transport crude oil from the Bakken oil field in North Dakota to a refinery to Patoka, Illinois, near Chicago.
The 1,172-mile pipeline, roughly 30 inches in diameter, would carry 470,000 barrels per day and is a project of company Energy Transfer Partners.
Activists call themselves “water protectors” and argue that the pipeline poses similar threats to the now defeated Keystone XL, but lament that DAPL has failed to garner the same amount of national attention. Tribal leaders also say that the US army corps of engineers’ initial decision to allow the pipeline to run within a half-mile of the local reservation was done without consulting tribal governments and without a thorough study of impacts.
This means, the tribe says, that the project violates federal law and native treaties with the US government.
One of four Nisga'a communities, Gitwinksihlkw is located on the north bank of the Nass River 100 kilometres northwest of Terrace, British Columbia. Home to 250 residents, Gitwinksihlkw offers cultural rich history, natural beauty, and access to Canada's newest lava bed. Canada's last volcanic eruption occurred in Nisga'a territory approximately 250 years ago. The lava destroyed everything in its path, sparked fires in the surrounding forests, and covered two Nisga'a villages. More than 2,000 people perished. Survivors eventually resettled Gitwinksihlkw (Place of the Lizards). According to oral tradition, large lizards lived here before the eruption. Today, the lizards are gone but the vast lava beds still dominate the valley. They serve as a memorial to those who lost their lives and as a reminder of the importance of respect-for both the natural world and the wisdom of the elders.

The term "shaman" in Hawaiian is translated as "kahuna" and refers to a traditional faith healer.
