Where is "Turtle Island" and who are the Indigenous People?
Turtle Island is a Native American reference to the Americas, and is commonly used among tribal people in the United States to specifically refer to North America. The Indigenous People of Turtle Island are the Native Americans (a.k.a American Indians, First Nations People, Indigenous Americans, etc...).
Often the people of Turtle Island are erroneously lumped together as though we all have a single culture... but, this has never been the case. There are many different tribal cultures indigenous to North America; and, while we may share some common values, we have many unique tribal traditions. The specific heritage and cultural perspective of this site is that of indigenous followers of Jesus Christ from the mid-Atlantic coastal region of the United States, from the Nanticoke-Lenape tribal people remaining in the area of "Poutaxet" - what is commonly known today as the "Delaware Bay." Together with our many sister coastal tribes, we "Easterners" live where the land meets the ocean and the morning light first shines on Turtle Island, so we are called the "People of the Dawn" or "The People of the First Light."
Jesus said, "I have come into the world as light, so that whoever believes in me may not remain in darkness" (John 12:46 ESV).
