     Izkalotlan, Aztlan -- Emerging from a three day traditional
     gathering of Indigenous Nations and Pueblos, a legation of
     Indigenous Peoples initiated today a global Indigenous Peoples
     Peace Initiative intended to restore the principles of
     "yectlamatcayetoliztli" (PEACE) as a mandate of humanity from the
     future generations. The proclamation was made from the NAHUACALLI,
     Embassy of the Indigenous Peoples located in Phoenix, Arizona.

     "We must disarm the global regime of nationalism of the state. The
     psychologies of hatred and competition under which the government
     states of the world would have us sacrifice our humanity and our
     children to senseless wars will no longer be tolerated. As
     Indigenous Peoples of the world, we further challenge the
     government states of the United Nations system to criminalize the
     destructive impact of warfare upon the ecosystems of the Earth
     itself, by defining appropriate international legal protocols
     regarding the conduct of warfare such as the Geneva Convention."
     Said Tupac Enrique Acosta, member of the Xicano Nahuatl Nation.

     To implement the Indigenous Peoples Peace Initiative,
     representatives of the diverse and distinct Indigenous Nations
     attending the launch of the global campaign, moved out from the
     Nahaucalli embassy in the Four Directions, with assignments to
     convoke the traditional spiritual leadership from around the world
     to engage in the restoration process of Peace and Dignity. The
     first objective of the Indigenous Peoples Peace Initiative is to
     make known to the conscience of all humanity that the calls to war
     by the government states will not apply to the Indigenous Peoples
     globally, and will not be answered. Instead, the Indigenous
     Nations of the continent Itzachilatlan, (the Americas) propose
     that the indigenous nation confederations from around the world
     rise to reclaim the destiny of the future generations, by invoking
     spiritual and moral authority as the protectors of the Mother
     Earth. The Indigenous Peoples of this hemisphere have maintained
     such a spiritual, cultural, and political confederacy since time
     immemorial. This confederacy is known as the Confederation of the
     Eagle and the Condor.

     In terms of communications, the IPPI has implemented a hyperspace
     linkup, and will be delivering a message to the United Nations
     representatives of the Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues under
     the Economic and Social Council on May 15 in New York. The
     Nahaucalli in Phoenix, Arizona will serve as clearing house for
     the first phase of the Indigenous Peoples Peace Initiative.

     Referring to the Xiuhpohualli, the count of years of Izkalotlan,
     Aztlan which correlates to other counts of calendar systems among
     the Maya and Nahua Nations, the legation travels now to fulfill an
     ancestral mandate called the prophecy of the Sixth Sun given on
     August the 13, 1521 in Mexico. "It is the dawn of the Sun of
     Justice. The first rays of light from the East have been seen,
     they have been felt," said one youth who has made a lifelong
     commitment to the goals of the initiative. "Now is the time to go
     forward in a sacred manner. A new world is about to be born."
