An Ancient American
The first religious ceremonies held in
the Americas were conducted by the Holy Men of the
tribes that originally settled these lands as far back
as 10,000 years ago -- and perhaps even farther back in
time than that! The
traditions and culture of our ancestors are celebrated
today in the First Nation Church. With followers and
practitioners across North America and around the world, we can rightfully
claim to be the oldest traditional religious
organization in the Western Hemisphere, and the largest
membership-based Native American religious society in
the United States.
Followers of the Kituwa
Society First Nation Church believe in a simple creed of love, respect, freedom and tolerance. We
respect Nature and each other. We care for the land and the other living things around us. We believe that no one of us
succeeds unless we all succeed, and we believe that no one of us on Earth is greater than any other.
Cherokee: A People Or A Faith?
The principles of our Faith are derived from the traditions and culture of the
Kituwa Society (also known as Keetoowah or Kituwah)
and the Cherokee First Nations, whose beliefs in
Nature and its Creation form the foundation of our church.
To be part of the Kituwa Society First Nation spiritual movement, you do not
have to be born "Kituwa" or
"Cherokee"; along the same lines of not having to be born in Rome to be Catholic, or in Israel to be
Jewish, you do not have to be born Cherokee to embrace the faith and teachings of our people.

Embracing All Beliefs And Cultures
To be part of the Kituwa Society First Nation spiritual movement, you do not have to abandon or alter your other beliefs. You can
believe in the teachings of Jesus Christ, Buddha or any other spiritual guide without compromising yourself.
Furthermore, Kituwa Society First Nation Church followers embrace the spirituality of all Native American, First Canadian and Native
Mexican people, which share the same basic tenets, including variations upon a common Creation story, a deep and abiding
respect for all living things in Nature, and a strong sense of family and community.
Whether you are American or Canadian, German or Japanese, whether your tribe is from Georgia, North Carolina,
Texas or Oklahoma, whether you are Cherokee, Navajo, Apache or Powhatan, and regardless of the color of your skin, you
are warmly welcomed into the community of Kituwa
Society First Nation people around the world!
