Power Point

Andrew Cameron Bailey and Connie Baxter Marlow, Mayflower Descendant, present their discoveries from over a decade of research into the events leading up to and following the harvest celebration in the fall of 1621 now know as The First Thanksgiving and its role in the transformation of consciousness.

Democracy, Separation of Church and State, Consent of the Governed, Self-Determination, Equal and Just Laws Serving the Common Good. The tenets of civil government that arose from the principles and ideals of the Mayflower Pilgrims and the Indians they lived amongst.

The Origin Story of America begins with a compact, a peace treaty and an inter-cultural feast, followed by a melding of cultures through 50 years of friendship between the Mayflower Pilgrims and the Pokanoket Wampanoag Indians at Plymouth Plantation 1621-1675.

Join Bailey and Marlow as they bring to light the untold story that has been shrouded in the mis-conception and mis-understanding of revisionist history.

Thanksgiving: A Time to Celebrate and a Time to Mourn

Despite all the confusion and misinformation, there is good news about the 1621 harvest celebration now known as The First Thanksgiving. We Americans have much to celebrate: democracy, separation of church and state, consent of the governed, self-determination, equal and just laws serving the common good. These are the tenets of civil government that arose from the principles and ideals of the Mayflower Pilgrims and the Indians they lived amongst in peace and friendship for 54 years.

We can mourn the loss of potential of the relationship that developed there under the guidance of the two visionary leaders Pilgrim Governor William Bradford and the Massasoit, sachem of the Pokanoket Wampanoags. And we can mourn alongside our Native brothers and sisters who have suffered since that unique time in human history.

The origin story of the United States begins with the Mayflower Compact, the Pilgrim/Wampanoag Peace Treaty and an inter-cultural feast, followed by a melding of cultures through more than half a century of friendship between the Mayflower Pilgrims and the Pokanoket Wampanoags at Plymouth Plantation from 1621 to 1675.

American democracy and the American mind and spirit are the fruits of the seeds planted at Plymouth. There’s an untold story waiting to be told, a story that has been out-of-balance since it the first telling of it. The telling of this story reflects the consciousness of the people who tell it. For centuries we glorified the Pilgrim and ignored the Indian except for the story of Squanto and the planting of corn that culminated in “The First Thanksgiving.” Now, for decades, in an effort to correct that imbalance, revisionist history has demonized the Pilgrims with tales of misdeeds that never occurred. We now have a confused and confusing story. We are enmeshed in blame, shame, guilt and anger, with no one knowing what or who to believe.

The Situation, The Challenge, Resolution and Healing

The Past: Historical misrepresentation. The Indians have been stereotyped and marginalized for hundreds of years. Their role in the evolution of democracy has been ignored. Colonization has taken the Indians’ lands and destroyed their culture, resulting in bitterness, resentment, and anger.

The Present: Misinformation has been disseminated about the Pilgrims in a misguided effort to correct the imbalance and honor the Indian. Shame, guilt, ignorance and lack of concern on the part of the whites. Distorted history widely believed.  A nation morally paralyzed.

The Future: Restoring the balance. Honor as the healing balm. Recognition and acknowledgement of the role both the Mayflower Pilgrims and the Native Americans played in the evolution of the principles and ideals that were the seeds of free government.  The inspiring model of visionary leaders bridging great gulfs of difference to live in peace and friendship.

It’s Time for Change!

A once-in-a-lifetime opportunity is at hand. The year 2020 is rapidly approaching, the 400th anniversary of the landing of the Mayflower, and the half-century of intercultural peace and friendship that ensued. No one seems to remember this. We have all been duped by revisionist history. It’s time to clear up the confusion, and return to the beautiful, inspiring story that underlies America’s origins.

Will we, the people, ever fulfill the promise made in our founding vision, the promise of Liberty, Justice and Abundance for all? Or are we morally paralyzed because we are ashamed of our Origin Story? This timely film will set us free from the anger, blame, shame and guilt that now shroud an unprecedented time in the history of humanity – the period during which we made the radical move from monarchy to democracy, the separation of Church and State, self-determination, and consent of the governed. A true quantum leap!

Out of this evolution, informed by interaction with the indigenous peoples of Turtle Island, came a new nation, a nation of the people, by the people, for the people. Partly because, 400 years ago, two inspired leaders, one English and one American Indian, kept their people in peace and friendship for over half a century.

Thanksgiving 2014

There is a disturbing situation centered on Plymouth, especially at Thanksgiving, distorting indisputable historical facts about that half-century of harmony. The Pilgrims have been dishonored. They are accused of crimes against the Indians, crimes they did not commit. Google “the real Thanksgiving” or “the truth about Thanksgiving,” and you will see what we mean.The true nature of the friendship between the Mayflower Pilgrims and the Pokanoket Indians is now mired in misinformation, misbelief, ignorance, shame, blame, anger and guilt. Our school and college textbooks have been revised in the interests of “political correctness” and now contain unpleasant “facts” that are completely untrue.
Are You Aware That:
  • An inspiring inter-cultural story lies at the founding of the United States?
  • The Mayflower Pilgrims were different from the Puritans, who came in 1630?
  • The Pilgrims and their Indian friends were spiritually aligned?
  • The Pilgrims and the Indians played a role  in the evolution of democracy?
  • They lived in peace & friendship from 1621 – 1675, more than half a century?
  • America’s Origin Story is currently mired in misbelief and misinformation?

THE PLYMOUTH PARADIGM
1620 – 1675

400 years ago a synthesis occurred, creating a new mind and a new spirit – a vision of freedom, independence and self-determination. The Mayflower Pilgrims and the Pokanoket Indians lived in peace and friendship for more than half a century. The English and the Indian came together, and for a brief shining moment showed us what is possible. They set an example of how America could have been, if the “Plymouth Paradigm” had prevailed. The inter-cultural exchange at Plymouth Plantation gave birth to a promise America has yet to fulfill.

The Historical Background

  • November 9, 1620: An English ship called Mayflower makes landfall at present-day Cape Cod, Massachusetts, carrying the seeds of American democracy. The 102 passengers seek to establish a colony based on freedom of conscience and freedom of religion. Before setting foot on American soil, they draft the famous Mayflower Compact. a civil agreement which will govern their behavior once they establish the proposed plantation.
Mayflower Compact ,1620

Signing of the Mayflower Compact, November 11, 1620

  • March 21, 1621: Half of the Mayflower passengers have died of illness during the brutal first winter. More than three months after coming ashore at Plymouth, the 52 surviving English fathers, mothers and children meet Samoset, Squanto, the neighboring Pokanoket Indians, and their leader Massasoit, in circumstances little short of the miraculous. The two visionary leaders craft a mutually-beneficial treaty that both parties will honor for the next 54 years.
  • THE FIRST FIFTY YEARS corrects a number of widely-held historical misconceptions, but more importantly, it takes the “high road” and explores the question: what was the common bond that kept these two completely different cultures in harmony for so long, while all around them was danger, competition, intrigue, war and dissension?
  • Far from warranting blame and shame, the Pilgrims and the Pokanokets both deserve honor for their visionary alliance and their impeccable behavior toward one another. The timeless Pilgrim/Indian story has never been told from this elevated perspective.

A Call For Healing

There is a deep wound in the heart of America. Every Thanksgiving there is a blast of misinformation on the Internet and elsewhere which paints a horrific, false picture of the Mayflower Pilgrims and their alleged behavior toward the Indians they lived among. Millions of people now believe these historical absurdities. It’s in our education system. Celebrities like Van Jones and Cher are spreading the blame, shame, guilt and anger. It’s a mess!

Setting The Record Straight

How can we heal this core wound in the American psyche? There’s only one way – tell the truth.  The truth will set us free. The inspiring, uplifting fact is, the Pilgrims and the Indians lived in unbroken peace and friendship for over fifty years. The Pilgrims and the Pokanokets enacted a treaty the day they first met, on March 22, 1621, and they honored the agreement for the next 55 years.

THE FIRST FIFTY YEARS is a film/book /documentary project that will bring a balanced, inspiring and historically accurate perspective to America’s true origin story. It will eliminate the current mis-beliefs and bring much-deserved honor to both the Pilgrims and the Indians.

Why Is This So Important?

The Pilgrims carried the first seeds of western democracy to the New World, the beginnings of the momentous move from monarchy to freedom. The result of the settler/Indian interaction was the emergence of a uniquely American mindset based upon basic, universal truths that are humanity’s birthright – freedom of conscience, freedom of the individual, freedom of religion. These ideas came from both the English settlers AND the Indians among whom they lived. The Mayflower Compact, crafted and signed in the cabin of the Mayflower on November 11, 1620 before the Pilgrims set foot on American soil, together with the Great Law of the Iroquois, inspired and ignited the vision of democracy that became the United States of America.

The vision and mission of THE FIRST FIFTY YEARS project is to inspire America and Americans by bringing America’s origin story into balance and honoring the Mayflower Pilgrims and the Native Americans for their role in the evolution of democracy and the American mind and spirit. The project will also correct a number of misconceptions about the relationship between the Pilgrims and the Indians during the first fifty years of Plymouth Colony.

 Talking Circle.

The official launch: A multi-generational, multi-cultural talking circle in Carbondale, CO. January 14, 2014

We launched the project with a talking circle at the Third Street Center in Carbondale, Colorado, just down the valley from Aspen. Two Native Americans joined the circle. They expressed two very different but highly relevant perspectives on the challenging situation we are addressing. The following week we filmed our first interview using the new equipment, with Navajo elder Mary AshkiiLgaii Wheeler (center of talking circle photo) speaking of love, unity and understanding the Oneness of all things as a pathway to healing.

Our fund-raising is ongoing. We need funds to get to New England in the spring and spend six months shooting our documentary, finishing the research and writing the screenplay.INSPIRE AMERICA! DONATE NOW!

This project it the outgrowth of a life-time of experiences and explorations for both of us who have authored the book “THE TRUST FREQUENCY: Ten Assumptions for a New Paradigm”TF Book Cover1.5x2.5.5at72 copy and produced the film “IN SEARCH OF THE FUTURE: What do the Wise Ones Know?”ISOTF Cover copy Through books, films, photography exhibits and other events we have been bringing indigenous cosmology into Western thinking for over 30 years. Our underlying premise is that the prevailing paradigm is missing important information, which has led to a world out-of-balance.

Pilgrim/Indian

THE FIRST FIFTY YEARS is America’s origin story! It is therefore important. It is inspiring. It is impeccable. Inspiration can lift us to to new levels. We can each contribute to bringing the world into balance by shifting our perspective, examining our beliefs and realizing the vision the founders of America – both European and Native American – had/have for humanity!

Here are the highlights of the perspective we are bringing:
1. The spiritual alignment of the Pilgrims and the Indians
2. The role of the Indian and Pilgrim in the evolution of democracy and the American mind and spirit
3. Correcting the misinformation and misconceptions concerning the Pilgrims and the Indians and America’s origin story.
4. The inspiring story that sits at the founding of this nation – an exception to the human condition then and now.
