Joe Rose: The Oskibimadizeeg (The New People)

Produced by Nick Vander Puy
Reserve, Wisconsin (  

According to some Ojibwe prophecy, during the time of the Seventh Fire, which is figured to have started with the boat landing spearfishing protests in Wisconsin in the late nineteen eighties, a new people will emerge to retrace their steps back to natural living.

During this time, the journey of the natural people of the earth, the Oskibimadizeeg, (the New People) will take them to elders for advice.

According to teachings in The Mishomis Book the light skinned race will be offered a choice between following the road towards unlimited technology and spiritualism. If the slower, less damaging path towards spiritualism is followed the Seventh Fire will light the Eighth Fire, an era of peace, brotherhood, sisterhood, and love.

During the Native American Week at Northland College, Ashland, Wisconsin in March Professor Joe Rose (Bad River Ojibwe) talked about the emerging New People.  

"There are four colors on the medicine wheel, red, white, black, and yellow. They will come together during the time of the Seventh Fire."
