About Us

Fuego Sagrado de Itzachilatlan of Colorado corp, Native American Church is a Colorado nonprofit corporation. We are a Place of worship and spiritual healing. As a nonprofit religious corporation we are not organized for the private gain of any person. Everything that we do is done for the improvement of the quality of life and spiritual well being of all who are willing to embrace the Culture of Itzachilatlan. We are organized exclusively for religious, spiritual, and educational purposes.

Fuego Sagrado de Itzachilatlan of Colorado corp. is an affiliate of a large denomination. In fact we are the largest denomination of the Native American Church in history. We have 28,000 members in the Americas and representatives in over 52 countries. We also are members of Crestone Spiritual Alliance and La Familia del Fuego Sagrado de Itzachilatlán and Fundación Cultural Camino Rojo. The Singing Stone is our drum group, a sub-committee of our Church.

Our intention is to preserve and exercise the expression of aboriginal traditions and other indigenous American religious practices. this is done consciously and in accordance with the First Amendment of the United States Constitution. We want to carry out and perform our Religious, Spiritual Ceremonies, Gatherings and Dances to up lift the human spirit in the celebration of the divine. We also intend to Preserve traditions by aligning with lineage holders of authentic spiritual traditions, giving them support and encouragement and applying their lessons.

It is our objective is to protect, spread, and express the indigenous and aboriginal religious teachings that we have. It is also our responsibility to safeguard Indigenous Spirituality and customs according to traditional values. In order to preserve a living tradition we need to ensure that we keep it in the same condition as it was received. Also we will have to ensure that it is transmitted to the future generations correctly. It is our purpose to promote activities that nourish, stimulate, and develop creativity through spiritual expression, cultural identity, cultural art and history. It is important to share freely the deepest truths of spirituality. It has been far to long that these truths have been masked to control others. We live in a time where spiritual greed and secretiveness has led to a culture blinded  by ignorance of our relationship with our creator, Wakan Tanka.

In addition to this we are also here to promote Interfaith unification and fully embrace the freedom of religion. We do not have to agree that all religions are the same to be able to imagine what all human religions must look like from the perspective of the very center of the universe, our Creator. From that perspective we can see past the differences and embrace the deeper meaning of true Religion. We promote learning from the Creator, Learning from the Creation, Learning from ourselves and by learning from others.

We believe ourselves legitimate and direct heirs to all original ancient indigenous practices, beliefs, and rituals past to us. It is the destiny for these traditions to blossom and be available as a birthright to all human beings. All of the traditions we carry are directed with the deepest reverence towards our Mother Earth, Father Sun, and the Great Creator, the center of the universe. Accompanying our rituals and ceremonies are sacred traditional songs passed down generations by indigenous peoples for the purpose of calling out to the divine. The power of song is a living connection that serves to foster new expressions from the primordial source of all sound.

We must place great importance on  the way these ancient rituals are presented to others. The standards of ordination for spiritual leaders are as strict as they have always been. For the sake of preservation and the integrity of primordial traditions, no part of these ways should ever be diluted or neutered in any way. There are too many examples all around us of traditions that have gone soft and gotten distracted from direct communion with divinity. It is through direct communication with the authors of the universe that we are undeniably reminded of the unalienable truths within us all.

NativeAmericanManGraphicsFairy1As a spiritual community it is essential that we have a sound governing body. American Indian governments had a profound effect on many of our Founding Fathers and played an important role in shaping the U.S. Constitution and changed the way the whole world functions by their examples. With our example we can bring non judgement and peaceful negotiation to all Religions and between all denominations. We do not have to agree that all religions are the same to be able to imagine what all human religions must look like from the perspective of the very center of the universe, our Creator.

Our General Assembly or Council meetings welcome all members and give a voice to all members. meetings are led by a Directive Council who form the core governing council. Directive Council, along with the Officers, have power to change the Bylaws. Directive Council members constitute the main governing council and their actions and decisions surpass any decisions made by officers, advisers and members and yet are still influenced by the voice of all the people. One way this works is in non judgement, in the understanding that each life has its own justified perspective and that each life is functioning from the very center of the universe reflected out onto the world from within each one of us.

Spiritual advisers, or Spiritual leaders are the referees of a rite and oversee ceremonies in accordance with tradition of how it was received. Being a Spiritual Adviser is a privilege and requires strenuous prerequisites and community approval. what affirms the the true power of the leader is his or her ability to speak from the inner truth within each of us, mirroring all our inner truths. All Spiritual leaders must know that each person has a direct connection with divinity and that each  person is ultimately responsible for their own spiritual growth. The native path is about a Leader facilitating a space for you to tap into the connection you already have by your self. The leader sets the stage for the Spirits work and further serves to encourage and inspire. A religious activity is the artistic medium for the seekers own spiritual expression and creation.

To be successful on any spiritual journey you should at least consider the following:

  • Be honest to yourself about your spirituality. Don’t believe anything you are told and Question everything you think you know.
  • Understand that you have a direct connection to the divine and that you are ultimately responsible for your spiritual growth.
  • Have courage, Claw through your fine domestic vainer and unveil your true self, the untamed, unattached nature of your immortal spirit!
  • Communicate,Tell all the spirits what you want and tell them to prepare you. Ask them to lead you to the right teachers for you.
  • Be a selfless servant with ruthless boundaries. Be humble and kind without being stupid or gullible.
  • Make sacrifices and take risks.
  • Never put spirituality before your children!
  • Have no expectations or conditions upon your spirituality.

As a Church we have the following attributes:

PETA WAKAN

Here at the home of the Singing Stone abounds the magic of times untold. A mystery that is unfathomable to the modern anylitical mind.  It may seem to defy scientific process or scrutiny of any kind. It is an ancient connection with spirits far older than human language. The Singing Stone is dedicated to preserving some of the last connections to these spirit helpers of mankind on the Western Hemisphere. We are doing this by teaching ceremonial songs in the Lakota language, by preserving  indigenous American spiritual practices and by safeguarding the integrity of  these sacred rites.

Read What We Believe!

“The reason for this preservation is not to stop the evolution of a native path but to stop the domestication of it. Domestication de-claws it making it an obedient pet rather than a fierce panther that inspires reverence and change.”

“La razon para preservar, no es para parar la evolucion the el camino nativo,  pero sí para parar la domesticación de tal camino. Domesticación, desgarrar es como hacer una obediente mascota, en vez de una pantera feroz  que inspira reverencia y grandes cambios.”
