New Earth Army base on Kaua’i / filming of Nat’l Geographic “Doomsday Preppers”

The following is a final statement of intent by Captain David Lakota of the New Earth Army for his role as base commander for the island of Kaua’i. This is also for the arrival of a film crew from National Geographic to film a bug-out from Kalalau Valley to the 4000′ high plateau on top of the Island. Here we will explore and discover forest, rivers, valleys and canyons of Kokee State Park.

This is where the Executive Producer Allan wants to begin filming the building of a New Earth Army base. It is still a new and wild mystery to me how all of this will tie together cohesively in a 20 minute segement on national television, but I do know the process is invaluable. The subject matter is among the most important of our time.

Following that is an ongoing record of communication and correspondence between several of those involved with both the National Geographic production “Doomsday Preppers” and the building of a New Earth Army base in Kauai.

These postings are intended to streamline communication between representatives from Sharp Entertainment who are producing this National Geographic presentation. The major theme for this episode is educational in the way of pending “Earth Changes” via a pole shift and/or a Tsunami.

These postings are personal and private yet openly shared as a way to greatly enhance quality and depth of communication. We are story-building here simultaneously as shooting from the hip. However, the core of what we are presenting is solidly researched and implemented over a period of 20 years in Alaska and 13 years in Hawaii.

Participating in any form of National Geographic episode is both a lifetime achievement in wilderness documentary production and an unprecedente opportunity to make a difference in the world through hands-on practical education.

“Nature is the best teacher.” so that is part of the intention here… to deliver NATURE to the people. Most will never see Hawaii or Kalalau Valley, but we can bring it to them. Combined with a message of intention for stewardship of such a precious place, along with a reminder that everyone’s back door is a step into nature and the spirit world for that matter. Doomsday Preparation, to me, is very natural and important part of everyday life when you are living close to Nature. Yet I feel in even more danger when I am in civilization.

So, both in society and wilderness, this subject is important. Our endeavoring to produce something of quality on the subject is noble and an excellent source of long-term great karma.

This production deserves a ten-percent seriousness factor. The rest is for fun and play and entertainment. The two together are a magick formula… “90% fun + 10% preparation or structure = 1000% serendipity”

I want to include at least brief clips of all the major threats here: hurricane, earthquake or other human or natural disaster such as one of the food barges not making it. Or martial law, government shut-down or anything else that interrupts the flow.

My intention for being involved with this is mostly intuitive. Logically and morally, I do not want to influence an increase of traffic to Hawaii and especially its sacred places like Kalalau. The whole island of Kauai is to me a sacred gem of creation. It is the gem of Hawaii. Ninety percent undeveloped and a lot of the development has character and history. The indigenous people there are warrior spirits and full of the Spirit of Aloha. Kaua’i is the home of Kanaka Maoli and the Mana Huna People along with many other wild and eccentric individuals from all over the world who live in Kauai because they and it are special.

Therefore, I pray to Ke Akua… I humbly request Creator that this production and all the staff and crew be guided in a holistic way- body, mind, heart and soul so that the final presentation and the production process are educational, enlightening and a source of inspiration for life in paradise… honoring the Earth in all her glory. I ask that you help me to give the very best presentation on the most important and practical of subjects and influences. Survival and Sustainable Living are key. So is enlightenment and co-creating a “Generative Way of Life”. I ask for your guidance, support and direction and protection dearest One, for myself and all those involved. May everyone have fun, be alert and not get hurt. May the finished production reach mlllions in the way of quality entertainment and education on a most integral subject of our times and for all of history… Earth Changes and a quantum awakening of human consciousness, enjoyment and connection to thee. Whatever of this serves the highest good Life Force, make it so. Aho. Hoka-hey.

Ke Akua: It shall be so David. I promise.



Letter to Brian at Sharp Entertainment re: ideas and themes for show

Aloha Brian,

Mahalos for the update and details.

Below are some notes and ideas for the show as well as some updates on this end and in Kaua’i.

Color Code:
RED– major themes to include in show
Light red– secondary themes
Green– Key players and organizations
Purple– Sharp Entertainment and National Geographic ideas and objectives
I have made contact with both Jonathan Laine on Kaua’i and Ltc. Jim Channon, 30 yr. commander of the New Earth Army. The Colonel has formally and officially delegated me as the New Earth Army base commander on Kaua’i. This is both a mythological position and a real one that deserves to be given attention, resources and a team of people.Doing a shoot there with this theme in mind is something that can launch into a long-term base that serves as a local and global catalyst for disaster preparation, emergency response and humanitarian aide. The two keys are education and entertainment combined with an additional factor of “Inspiration”.

So, that is one of my contributions to the Show. My job is to not only educate and entertain but to inspire.One of the best ways that this may be done is to serve as a sort of bridge between people and nature. Nature is among the very best and most sustainable sources of entertainment, education and inspiration. The beauty alone does it. So does the vastness and the wildness and the mystery. So those are five major themes to make sure to include in the Show: Vastness, Mystery, Beauty, Grandeur and Vastness. The visual and prospect of wilderness adventure is a source of inspiration to many. In fact it was National Geographic films and Magazine that contributed greatly to my spending my entire life as a remote wilderness documentary filmmaker, producer and educator.

Humor is key and serves as a golden thread throughout. A professor at Stanford University said, “Retention is 800 times greater when humor is used.” So, we will be wise to make this show funny!

Survival and Sustainable Living are priorities for more and more people- even those who are not of a “Doomsday Preparation” mindset. They are realizing it is practical and important.

So, for ratings, and for karma, education and entertainment, I feel it is vitally and integrally important to showcase the most simplistic and do-able aspects of Basic Survival. This is one of the major keys to this production being successful.

Basic Survival Elements– in order of priority (depending upon location and conditions)
  1. Calm
  2. Shelter
  3. Warmth
  4. Water
  5. Food
  6. Activity
  7. Companionship
Then we have wilderness travel, orienteering, mountain climbing, cliff and rock climbing, crossing streams (especially if flooded), and encountering dangerous wild animals. The wild Hawaii boar is to me as dangerous or more so than meeting a black bear or brown bear in Alaska. So, footage of a wild boar and/or hunting wild boar is a major form of entertainment and a practical aspect of basic survival.
If I contribute nothing else, I know this will be enough. If you want to make it more elaborate, keep reading and/or send me more of your ideas.
The above alone is enough for an hour-long special. So, anything more than that is probably touched-on only briefly with availability for some type of follow-up, a part two or something. Allen mentioned creating something now and building upon it somehow. His vision of that is really key to going beyond mere survival to something epic and inspirational. If he does not have the time or interest in building upon that, we have enough to work with. If he does have the time and enthusiasm to give that theme attention, I am very eager and excited to discover what that is and how I can contribute to it. For now it is enough that he has planted the seed. It re-kindled the sense of duty and mission that I had last year for something similar, and it is awakening something powerful and mysterious in me now.The New Earth Army represents something even more profound than its purpose reveals. The purpose is “uniting the world’s militaries toward service to the planet.” -according to its founder and current commander. The mission of the New Earth Army used to be four hearty paragraphs, a major condensation of many, many years in both the corporate world and military life of the highly creative and visionary Colonel.

However, at my prompting, and it wasn’t easy, he informed me one day and announced to the world that the New Earth Army now has one simple mission: “Paradise”.
Ironically and serendipitously, this just happens to be the main mission of the very mission oriented native Hawaiian who was most influential in educating me about the Kingdom of Hawaii. So the Kingdom of Hawaii and the New Earth Army share the same mission as I had previously decided upon for myself.
“Paradise!” is a MAJOR theme for this upcoming show. Paradise, not just beauty and nature and wildness, but true paradise, Hawaii’s finest, Kaua’i, is a GREAT source of inspiration for the viewing audience.
But this inspiration for paradise is also an invitation to paradise in a place that is already bursting at the seams of too many people. National Geographic, Sharp Entertainment, the New Earth Army and I each and all have a very fundamental responsibility to ENSURE that this influence serves as a source of inspiration to contribute to paradise rather than merely take from it.
Silently or on screen we have the ability and therefore the responsibility to contribute to the well-being of the people and place we are about to visit.  This will be among my highest priorities- even more than ratings.
The notion and reality of paradise is also a form of mystery. That deserves to be explored.
The Kingdom of Hawaii, in my mind, is a vital aspect of all of this, but you and the producers may decide to leave it out completely. If it is going to be mentioned then doing so ever so consciously and conscientiously can have a major impact upon Hawaii and the world.Along with and imminent pole shift and other human and natural disasters of Earth Changes: Tsunamis, Earthquakes, Volcanic Eruptions, power outages, interruption in communication and food shortages there is the equal or greater threat of government shut-down, martial law, or all-out anarchy. All of these elements are important to me to mention or show in the production. Even 1-3 blips of each is a very stimulating, entertaining and educational influence. The inspiration may come from emphasizing these elements for the purpose of provoking people into consciousness and ACTION!

One major difference between all of the episodes of “Doomsday Preppers” that I have seen so far and the scenario that we have ahead of us in Kaua’i, is that the way of life in Kaua’i, to a large enough degree, is beyond what any of the characters I saw portray. They were all prepping, waiting, practicing for something that may or may not come.
The way of life on Kaua’i, especially Kalalau Valley, is such that real-life application of survival and doomsday preparation is part of everyday life. It’s not just for practice or pretend. It’s happening for real.
In the last 40 years, Kaua’i was devastated three times by major hurricanes. Hurricane Iniki was the biggest in Hawai’i’s history.
The way of life in Kalalau is not only off-the-grid as many are in Hawaii full-time. Life is Kalalau is completely detached at times from civilization. It’s an eleven mile, dangerous gruelling hike to get in and out of there. The current and trade winds prevent people from kayaking back and forth. The giant surf all winter long prevents people from landing there- either by kayak or swimming in. It’s a dangerous, wild place.
So, in conclusion for now, the aspect of the New Earth Army that is just as important or more to me than it’s purpose or mission is similar to the final words of Ewan McGregor, (Obi-wan Kanobi from Star Wars) at the end of the movie about the New Earth Army by George Clooney and Jeff Bridges.If you have not seen the movie and you do not intend to see the movie, then we have little or no business discussing the New Earth Army now or in the upcoming show.

If you have seen the movie, it is important to see it again. I must do the same. Rachaelle has not seen it either.
Three times I watched it to understand why four of the biggest names in Hollywood (Jeff Bridges, George Clooney, Ewan McGregor, and Kevin Spacey, who are very particular about what they star in or produce, decided to create the “Men Who Stare at Goats” movie.
There are two lines at the end of the movie spoken by Ewan McGregor, that in part, answer this question. One of the answers is “Now more than ever we need the Jedi!” It’s like a plea for help or a call to action from the masses.
We can and it will be wise for Doomsday Preppers do include in the episode we are producing the phemonenon of theWay of the Jedi. There is also the  Way of the Shaman. These are two of the most important aspects of Survival and Doomsday Preparation.
Whew! That’s all for now.
In the next email, I will respond more directly to some of the questions and info you gave me.
Until then.
Captain Lakota

September 14th:

The following is my response to Melanie LeMay.

Mahalos for the response and number. I’ll pass it on to a guy named Brian with Sharp Entertainment. The Executive Producer’s name is Allen. The name of the show is “Doomsday Preppers” and they are producing their second season. I’ve watched a few of them and they are alright. I know we can do better. One reason is that we are more about doing it for real, now rather than waiting, and we are in Hawaii! They are stoked to be coming to Hawaii.

If you call or text me your email I will send you their schedule and other details. For now they are flyin-in on the 30th. Scouting Day 1. Filming on the 2nd, 3rd and 4th. Twelve hours each day. A few of us are going to look like a lot of us, and we are going to be workin and movin and buildin as though we are surviving a major pole-shift with the threat of Tsunami. We will be “heading to the hills” (Kokee State Park) to either build a shelter or move into one to wait out, live-out, the disaster or Earth Changes.
I will pass your number onto Brian. I don’t have it right here so please remind me if you do not receive it today.
My number is (808) 333-6066. Feel free to call anytime.
David Lakota

PS. Feel free to pass on the above information to at least one person whom you personally feel will be really cool on camera, capable and great to work with… someone who is savvy, willling and/or very experienced in the way of remote living, disaster preparation, etc.

Headin to Kaua’i on the 27th to do a shoot with National Geographic. They asked me to recruit some people to participate in this episode about a pole shift in the Earth’s axis and a Tsunami hitting Kauai.
If you or someone you know is interested, have them give me a call. I will put them in touch with National Geographic.
how are ya and what is new?


One thought on “New Earth Army base on Kaua’i / filming of Nat’l Geographic “Doomsday Preppers””

  1. Do you think it will be safe to be on Kauai during the pole shift? Or Maui? Possibly at the higher elevations? Would really like to get your opinion/insight. Thanks
