Tinamit Junan Uleu - Earth Peoples United is a 501(c)(3) Earth Wisdom church nonprofit that was incorporated in May 2005. We are the stewards of the Deer Mountain Sanctuary north of Mt Shasta in the Siskiyou Mountains of Northern California.

As we continue to evolve inside of this New Era and the industrial systems continue to fail us, people are increasingly searching for what has meaning and connection. Our technologies and fast-paced lifestyle often miss what is the center of all things- the elements and nature, and the sacred wisdom that comes from them. We once lived our lives by the Original Instructions that govern all life on our precious planet, and many complex traditions evolved from these basic teachings. All traditions at their core and essence share these same teachings that come from our essential connection to the elements and the spiritual manifestation of energy.

We are committed at Earth Peoples United to find what connects us as a human family- what are the essence of the world’s traditions and teachings, especially the indigenous teachings, that all people can reconnect to and live their lives by once again?

We have a wealth of different traditional holdings that are carried by different Wisdom Keepers to offer their teachings and perspectives that can allow each person to find their essential connection to the “building blocks” of Life and Earth-based spirituality, and then find their unique resonance and expression that comes from their own center. Our goal is to unify and empower people so that they can walk with respect and reverence and offer their gifts to the world.

The Original Instructions came in bundles, came in words, came in experiences through millions of years. We know them. They are all inside of us. Here, let them come out. Let them become you, you will become it. And this is our church. This is our freedom. This is the sacred ground. So welcome home.”
