Mazaclub, developers of mazacha.in, Tate for Mazacoin & Encompass Multcoin, are bringing Payu Harris, original creator of mazacoin, and much of the voice behind mazacoin, to Mt Shasta, where Rob Nelson, Mazacoin Development Coordinator, and Sarah Verbanac of mazaclub both live.
Just as Shasta is, Mazacoin is designed to be used by the many tribes, not just one. To make this so, we must begin to bring the message beyond the Oglala Sioux to the rest of North America, and beyond.
Mt Shasta is regarded by many as the root chakra of the Earth, and by others the Heart. Mt Shasta is regarded as one of the Earth’s most sacred sites by many people all over the world. We see the tribes around the mountain struggling to protect the forests, the water, the salmon, just as we see tribes all over the Earth trying to protect their lands from pipelines, logging, freeways, and more.
We have seen the natural energy flowing this year from the Black Hills to Mt Shasta. The Rainbow Family held their annual US gathering in Lakota territory, The Black Hills, and Payu Harris went with many others, including Chase Iron Eyes, who’s been very supportive of mazacoin. After the annual gathering a Rainbow Family tradition is to see a large contingent of the Rainbow Family got to Mt Shasta. The Winnemem Wintu Tribe, a Mt Shasta area tribe, issued a Cease and Desist Order to the Rainbow Tribe. The Order demanded that the Rainbow Tribe cease trespassing on their lands, which has been a long standing request by many Shasta area locals.
We see a need to develop more cohesive agreements between tribes, including non “tradtional” tribes like Rainbow, which has no chiefs, or president, but yet still must find ways to coexist with the tribes who steward the lands they use.
Mazaclub is flying Payu to Seattle and we will arrive in Mt Shasta about the 12th of August. In what we think is the true fashion of mazacoin, shamanic economics, we will let the mountain guide us along our way. We will intend to meet with leaders and members of local tribes, and meet with the many world travelers that come to Mt Shasta on their spiritual and shamanic journeys, and local community leaders. We will also attend as many events, powows, festivals, and the like as we’re able.
In Shasta we find a great many tribes, beyond those with federal recognition. Some of those, are new, much like the Rainbow Family is relatively new. We know that mazacoin can help each of these tribes, but mazacoin needs the help of each of them. If mazacoin is to last 7 generations, and what we build with it to last equally as long, we need more than financiers, more than cryptography experts, more than developers.
If mazacoin is to last more than 7 generations, we need to find how it serves us beyond the simple use as money. In Honduras, there is a blockchain based land title program underway, in Isle of Man money services are registered via blockchain. We see many smart contract and similar platforms are coming online. Sidechains are becoming a reality.
It is clear that mazacoin must grow. The blockchain, the mazachain, is designed to grow itself. With the value we create in the mazachain, by using as money for trade, we are able to effect change in the world before us. Take a first example in mining mazacoin. It currently requires wasteful equipment and large amounts of power. To remain successful, a miner must focus on efficiency, so it requires that we use the value created to make more and more efficient miners and power to run them. A large mining operation might need to be more efficient than the local power company and build their own generation facility. If this were to be done by a federally recognized tribe, and tribal corporation, this alone could turn the tide for many tribes, on a financial level, and on an ecological level as well. Dams are created now, which flood the homes of many tribes, and throughout the western US, prevent the salmon from running upstream. Mining is just the first example of how mazacoin can be capable of transforming the poverty of the typical reservation into a model of economic prosperity, and sound ecology. But this is all just beginning, and just the beginning. While we can see the opportunities, we can see obstacles that must be overcome. We need the leaders that come from all 4 directions to know how we must grow mazacoin. Trade, and our interaction with the Earth are about much more than money. At the root, all of our interactions in trade represent agreements. As so many tribes know, agreements are often not worth the paper they’ve been written on. We need to make fair and transparent systems for making agreements with something worth more than paper – mazacoin.
Again, developing methods for unbreakable agreements is work for much more than coders, and cryptologists, financial experts. We need chiefs, elders, statesmen, and shamans. We need People. The People are the ones to use mazacoin, the people should define how it grows to help us all.
We will bring the mazacoin message to the Mountain, and ask that it be carried in the Wind.
We’ll be posting video, audio, and of course, pics of our journey. We hope that you’ll join us in spirit as we ride!

With funding, we can extend our Shamanic Economics from Shasta and continue to meet with more tribes elsewhere in California, and beyond. We'll, of course, let you know how we spend those funds! Any remaining funds at the conclusion of Shamanic Economics, we will put into a bounty fund for the first mazacoin-related project to come from a member of a Shasta area tribe or town. 3KK5SXy9KTGXbJiWb9gFp1MmdqvU5ibsLy Bitcoin MGNd51vGUFsuQQJk7wLpKqTmzi2TYLNCoy Mazacoin Signed, Rob Nelson email@example.com -----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE----- iQEcBAEBCAAGBQJVsQ4dAAoJEMhteaewpdnuQAoIAK0eL1i4iq1TAnMVaPCHmWaB K5/D1xKgSeEh/DavI5SnAm7q2aXM6BcOqUWmF3Nu3Do8aZNhaP/+OeYYhVvzMmrP TsgRybBAALKg4kCIIyXCRqST979t6qt7jn6V8jsyD40Q7BxQU5aWwcYRk5eNlR+6 +cPqvW4utQ1hPyQ3MxgpHbzWtOYN672tLVyrnGjIQwJQ/Dq/RtydSbQ8h2LJN13A 58p2PTwVVe/UYzKuqgWQD1ctqo+fJ/IBC/rVFSw3r/TmCDPj6SA7fwTWJRj7t2v+ ZiiZm/p7w1NigBDkwl1FWVYIhFBx8dnwRP1fnFm9wqb9FPxMQBXO/7F/BItpQx8= =Y5qO -----END PGP SIGNATURE-----
