Ocean-dwellers are Creator's Beings who live in her heart: our oceans! I'll focus on the largest in her family. The biggest ocean-dwellers are thinking feeling intelligent caring Beings with:
Their own elaborate communications
Their own social systems
With life-long friendships
Knowledge to care for and to teach their young
They help each other with birthing
They baby-sit for each other
They cooperate together to defend their families
Whales are in crisis, takea boo:
Ocean-dwellers make annual migration across Mother Earth.
Inupiaq people hunt whale for food to sustain them:
During this time the huge swimmers catch then spark our attention, right? Today, anyone can visit our west coast and take one of the 'Whale, dolphin and porpoise Watching Tours' just to get a glimpse of them! Good thing too because they're on the endangered specie list. .
Ocean-dwellers in abstracts
My Ancient Ones created traditional abstracts for everyday use and of course for special occasions too. Even today, ocean-beings generate all manner of artistic work and even tourist activity in the coastal community's.
Native Americans and First Nations maintain stylized abstract designs. Not only that our Ancient Clan symbols identify our birthright as a member in one clan such as the Fish Clan, or the Black Fish Clan, or the Killer Whale Clan, or the 2-headed Sea Serpent Clan, etc. Clan identity is fundamental to our cultural celebrations. Besides clan identity ocean-dwellers have a central role in Native American and First Nations historical stories of Origin and Survival.
The Blue Whale is Creator’s biggest ocean marine mammal that for one century were mercilessly slaughtered to near extinction by the industry of whalers. Finally in 1996 the International community
took international action to protect them. This link takes you to a different website. I hope you'll enjoy the info then come back here.
Today it isn’t oil spills, nor all the dams, nor environmental warming, nor biodiversity destruction, as damaging as these environmental changes are on their own! It's these events unfolding together over an extended period of time. Just like us every day folks and our Mother Earth, ocean-beings have no defense against encroachment, alteration and industry-for-profit destruction.
Scientists say that: "over-fishing is a principal reason for the decline because there are no international catch limits… And, accidental catching by fishermen is as much a threat as targeted fishing…” over-fishing, accidental-netting, no international catch limits and ocean pollution are the damaging factors leading to extinction of ocean-dwellers.
Ocean-dwellers rise to our global conscience for protection in legislation.
Thank you Creator for gifting our Mother Earth with the Ocean Beings
All you who dwell in Mother Earth's Heart, thank you for
Your reason for Being
Your strength, intelligence and teachings
Your gifts of knowing to raise 2-leggeds to Respect Caring Harmony Balance
