What people are saying about SEEDS OF FREEDOM:
“Seeds of Freedom: A Vision for America” is a seminal film which is vital to our culture now. It awakens the heart and soul of all of us who cherish the roots of love and liberty planted in the founding of the United States. It is needed now more than ever as inspiration and guidance in a brokenhearted world.We are all the indigenous peoples of Earth.”

We are living in a time of increasing chaos when the very existence of the United States of America will come to be questioned. In this era the necessity for Americans to connect to and learn from the Native Americans and their traditions will play an increasingly important role. Connie Baxter Marlow and Andrew Cameron Bailey have made a commendable film which highlights the role of Native Americans in crafting the original political philosophy of the United States, which is highly relevant for our own time.

Bozho (Hello) Connie and Andrew! I have often told people that the problems and sins of our nation were not a result of the founding principles, but because of deviation from them. The bar was set very high back then by both our native folks and founding fathers. A goal is no goal at all if it does not demand something of us that is beyond us, and requires us to reach beyond who we are to become who we want and need to be. I believe your project will help people see that truth once again and our nation will be the better for it! God bless you, and I wish you all the best! Blessings to you,

Inaugural event for The James Phinney Baxter Lecture Series
Live links to recorded event:
moderated by Andrew Cameron Bailey
with Gary Marks, Tom Porter and Connie Baxter Marlow
Eminent philanthropist/historian James Phinney Baxter (1831-1921) believed that America must embody the high ideals of New England’s original settlers if it is to become a global exemplar of liberty, equality and justice. In 1921 he left a bequest instructing Boston to build a Pantheon to perpetuate the founding ideals and principles. Baxter’s great-great-granddaughter Connie Baxter Marlow adds a missing piece – the role of the American Indian in the evolution of democracy and the American mind and spirit.
As we move toward 2020 – the 400th anniversary of the landing of the Mayflower and the First Great Synthesis between Europeans and the American Indian – we have the opportunity to look at American history through a new lens – the role of the US of A in the evolutionary upward spiral of human consciousness. Yes the US of America. All of US and the role we are going to play in realizing the original vision of the human potential to bring Equality, Liberty, Justice and Abundance for all: The True American Dream!
A Time of Synthesis
An extraordinary exception to the human condition unfolded when the visionary leaders of two radically different cultures met and worked together to maintain an inter-cultural exchange that became the “First Great Synthesis”
between Europeans and American Indians during the fifty-four years of peace and friendship at Plymouth Plantation. This melding gave birth to American democracy and to the American mind and spirit. The “Second Great Synthesis”
occurred when aspects of The Great Law of the Iroquois were integrated into the United States Constitution in 1787. A third synthesis
is possible now as our cultures come together again to realize the great promise America made to the world in its freedom documents The Mayflower Compact
, The Declaration of Independence
and The U.S. Constitution
