The objective of the Sacred Fire Association is to safeguard, exercise, transmit and spread the traditions that preserve ancient knowledge that contemplates the use of plants for medical and ritual purposes.
Recognizing that the original peoples of America have preserved and perpetuated much of this knowledge and this knowledge up to the present day, it is now our choice and the responsibility to integrate it as a form of daily life for all the peoples and nations that in it recognize each other.
We recognize ourselves as a nation and as a people that accepts and recognize its connection with the Great Mystery. We recognize the primary existence of Earth, Air, Water, and Fire as the origin and source of life.
Our path includes all people, all races, all nations, and peoples of the four directions of this Earth.
It is our desire to live in harmony with everything that exists, to honor our relationships, in the awareness of the unity of the Great Family of Life.
In this group the contributions of all families who keep a Sacred Fire, in their home, in their community, and in their life are welcome.
