A Shared Space Community for Mature Artists and Students Who Share Tsalagi Values

Guest House in Boston, Massachusetts Since 1992

Using peacekeeper teachings and the call of creative artists to build community, the Black Indian Inn was founded upon a set of nine core Principles of Right Relations, which governs our interactions and relations, as well as those who visit the Inn.

Those Principles are:

  • 1 Speak truth;
  • 2 Speak of the good qualities of others;
  • 3 Be a confidant…say nothing behind one’s back you have not said to their face to face;
  • 4 Turn aside the veil of anger; no violence is tolerated;
  • 5 Waste not the bounty, want not;
  • 6 Respect all life;
  • 7 No harm;
  • 8 Harbor no thought of an angry nature;
  • 9 Do it now; if you see what needs to be done, do it.
