In today’s busy world, the movement of people
away from the extended family, and the breakdown of traditions and
spiritual beliefs, all contribute to the weakening of the social
fabric. This means we are lacking the traditional support networks
that in past generations helped us cope with the myriad stresses of
daily living, and major upheavals, which occur in our lives. Many
people feel a vague emptiness, or something missing in their lives,
this drives the search for their roots and new spirituality. As a
descendant of a special extended family with a rich historical and
cultural tradition, with members everywhere throughout the globe,
you are in the very fortunate position of being able to reconnect to
your roots and re-bond with people who share that common bond. It is
your Clan, your extended family, by joining you are enriched by, and
in turn enrich, that worldwide family; You are free to give, or
take, what you want, but it is your Clan and clan Society and your
right to belong. Our only obligation in return is to give due
honour and loyalty to our Chief and the Clan.
