5 Laws of a People.

Chitimacha teaching

"There is responsibility for each person towards each person. This is the first law.  Council is important and being inclusive is a fundamental law for living on Earth: Law two. The third law that came to mind sparked the Judeo-Christian trigger within me, and with some embarrassment I thought about the order of the gender: Man then Woman. I stopped because unlike the Eden story the emphasis is on joint cooperation, and no one in the story is above the other. The fourth law.

The Earth is dependent upon the Animal, Plant, Mineral, Human, Sky People relationship and the story instructs the Chitimacha on the fifth law of the People."
