In the Indigenous worldview, all Creatures serve many purposes and even have lessons to teach us through their behavior, relationships, and the stories passed down through many generations. Crow and Coyote dance around at the bottom of the Medicine Wheel where they wait to teach us about Creator’s life-death-rebirth cycle.
They take us to the deepest parts of our souls as individuals and as a collective so we can view the state of our lives and accept the ugliness and destruction that we have created for ourselves, our families and our communities and our nations through our choices.
They walk with us through the darkness and tell us jokes to show us our folly and help us laugh at our own humanity, and then send us back out into the game with a new perspective and sense of joy.
We are living at a time of major transformation on planet earth known as the Great Awakening and the 8th Fire. This time has been predicted by prophets of every faith tradition for thousands of years. This is the time in which humans are deciding what kind of future we want for this planet and for our children into the next seven generations.
It is a mighty struggle for truth, and at this point, we are at the bottom of the V – the southernmost point of the Medicine Wheel.
And it is here we must learn about the life-death-rebirth cycle if we are to understand what is happening in our world and move forward in a positive way. This is where we meet Crow and Coyote.
Great Awakening, Chaos & History
This time foretold by the Prophets of all nations is a time of great chaos and uncertainty as humanity is going through the difficult process of sorting truth from lies, good from evil, what is natural from what is synthetic and artificial.
On a personal level, many will find this difficult to bear alone as the shock and grief can cause both mental health crises and spiritual awakenings.
On a collective level, we are now seeing the shock and grief and rage at the hatred and division, the lies that we have allowed to infiltrate our world, the criminals who are trying to kill and enslave us all – who have done unmentionable horrors to our babies and children while lording over us as if we were their subjects.
As those of us who have been through the awakening process know, folks are going to need a lot of time and support in the coming weeks and months. We’ll be needing all our medicine to help people make sense of the shattering of the old paradigm while they integrate an understanding of the truth.
And this is where an understanding of the Life-Death-Rebirth cycle of the Sacred Wheel is absolutely necessary to our own healing and for those who are walking in service.
Crow and Coyote are masters of transition. Crow is the herald of death of all kinds – the death of the physical body and institutions, the death of relationships, the death of old worn out dreams and even the death of toxic cycles.
Coyote meets crow at the bottom of the Medicine Wheel and together they dance to bring about the healing needed to bring about rebirth. If we choose a rebirth (rather than to return for another shot at the lesson), Coyote trots us back into the life cycle with powerful trickster energy, cunning, and stamina.
Coyote’s trickster energy forces us out of our comfort zone through creating ridiculous situations and forces us to see the folly in our lives so we can release bad habits and attitudes, forgive ourselves and others and get back on our paths.
At this time, Crow and Coyote are walking all of us as individuals and as a human collective through the very bottom of the life-death-rebirth-cycle. And, when we are at the bottom, when we are walking through the Red and Black quadrants of the Medicine wheel, the lands of body and heart, we are walking through a time of death – death of an old cycle.
And this is where we are at this time of Great Awakening on Mother Earth. The time of the great transition from the 7th to the 8th Fire.
Many people are just awakening to the truth that the earth’s battle for political power is actually the struggle between light and dark, truth and deception playing itself out before our eyes.
What we have been taught is true and trustworthy is being revealed as a dark system designed to keep people fearful and enslaved.
During the time of Great Awakening, the transition from the 7th to the 8th Fires, all that has been hidden will be revealed. And at this time, what is being revealed is truth.
And one of the first questions truth asks is, “how did we get here?”
Humanity has suffered unnecessarily for many thousands of years because of the work of those who serve the dark – the shadow aspects of human society on every level – the shadow governments, shadow churches, mockingbird media, secret societies and many more.
One of the greatest mistakes modern humans have made is to believe that the cultural genocide and land/wealth/resource appropriation stopped happening with the end of colonialism against First Nations peoples in Turtle Island and other nations. If you believe it won’t happen to you, then you aren’t paying attention to the assault on human rights and freedoms in cabal-controlled countries around the world.
Over the past few hundred years in which Europeans made contact with Native Turtle Islanders, agents who operate on behalf of the elite empire have used contaminated blankets, cut off and contaminated food and water supplies, destroyed our villages and communities, falsely imprisoned and murdered our boys and men, and raped, kidnapped and killed our women and girls, imprisoned us on a fraction of our own land – or forced us into entirely strange territories as refugees in camps.
This is known as biological warfare and is a well-documented war strategy used by invaders throughout human history.
Our First Nations relatives are living examples of what a future for those of us who survive to live under the system of global communism will look like.
Massive poverty, shockingly high suicide rates among youth, broken families, alcoholism, addictions, diabetes, cancer, loss of culture and connection to our traditions that connect us to the Great Spirit and our Ancestors.
This is why it’s so important for people to learn the truth about what is happening in the world.
The truth about the attacks on rights and freedoms.
And begin to stand up and reclaim our rights as sovereign human beings.
This latest attack has been decades in the making as wise Elders can see. For many years, the planting of seeds in our young ones’ minds from early ages to value materialism and sex appeal over truth, goodness, wisdom and respect for our Elders and cultural traditions has been destroying our families and degrading our self respect as children of the most high Creator.
The truth about the covid biological terror attack on humanity by the elites who control the media, big pharma, the global banking system and many politicians is readily available to those who seek it. And the truth is spreading like the sunrise at dawn.
Below is a photo of an anti-mask, anti-lockdown protest in Berlin. August 2, 2020.
Finally, the mainstream media is beginning to print articles about the real agenda of the fraudulent covid “pandemic” and the insistence of elected public servants that all people wear masks.
“In the name of Covid, the State has already thrust itself into every corner of our existence. It has come between husbands and wives at the ends of their lives. It has forbidden the old to embrace their grandchildren.
It has denied us funerals and weddings, locked the churches, silenced the ancient monastic music of cathedral choirs and prevented the free worship of God for the first time in 800 years, and banned us (unless we are Left-wing) from holding or attending public meetings.” – Peter Hitchens, The Daily Mail
These dark ones claim they support “diversity” but use people of colour as their mascots – to appropriate our issues and pain for their own agenda, claim to stand with women and children who are victims of sexual abuse while protecting known pedophiles and rapists in positions of power.
They turn on anyone who refuses to acquiesce to their narrative of death and destruction, regardless of their race, culture, creed or gender.
One of the powerful divisive tactics that globalists have used against all the people on Turtle Island is to keep Native people enraged at the colonialism of the past and in a state of victimhood rather than focusing on the truth of today’s reality, investigating corruption in Tribal leadership and the agencies that serve our communities, healing ourselves and our family bloodlines, and finding ways to create opportunity for our youth.
We must never forget the horrific truth of our history because those who don’t know history and learn from it are doomed to repeat the lesson again and again.
And Native people in particular must realize that now is the time to protect this imperfect Nation that is remaining or we will truly have no land left.
When are we going to start protesting the countries/shitholes that your parents/grandparents fled from, instead of protesting and bashing the country that accepted you and your family? 🇺🇸🇺🇸🗽🗽let me know.

Communism in North America
The pattern of Marxist indoctrination through the school system was first introduced in North America via the Residential Schools through which these new “governments” kidnapped Native children, imprisoned them, cut off their cultural ties and their ability to speak their own language, tortured and sexually assaulted them, and even murdered them. The impact of this trauma is still being felt in Native families to this day.
And because so many were damaged, cultural and familial ties destroyed by this system, many carry the scars of Marxist indoctrination and perverted versions of Christianity while also suffering with the diseases of empire: alcoholism and addictions, diabetes, heart disease, obesity, cancer, mental illness and many more.
We have seen the way the Marxist/Communist movement has infiltrated North American society through the school systems, children and family services (through which government agents are still paid bonuses for kidnapping children), and the large web of charitable organizations that have immersed themselves in our communities.
As Canadians are now being shown through Trudeau’s criminal WE program, these charitable organizations and the school systems themselves are actively working to indoctrinate our children into communistic ideology – which is responsible for hundreds of millions of deaths around the world in only a hundred years.
Many people are now becoming aware that the Democrat party, and particularly the Clintons and their associates are deeply involved in attempting to overthrow America on behalf of the Chinese Communist Party. This is very clear in Hillary Clinton’s educational interests that informed her policies and behaviors as a public servant – and even more so in her political branding in 2016.
Many continue to despise President Donald Trump because they have been told to do so by their masters in the commercial media, their teachers and their peers. Google has set it’s search engines to censor the truth about the President and the unprecedented assault on him, his administration and his policies. And the social media giants have now been called before Congress to explain their censorship of conservative accounts and voices. People have been taught to attack anything that doesn’t support the leftist takeover of America, so many don’t know the truth.
Those who actually watch and listen to Trump’s news conferences, rallies, and speeches, who visit the White House and Department of Justice websites for news, who watch Congressional hearings rather than trusting a propagandized media, have a much better grasp of what is going on than those who continue to rely on a corrupted media.
The evidence clearly demonstrates that Trump is not only working with the US military to fight communism in our own country, but has established the nation’s first government agency to focus specifically on ending the kidnapping and murder of Indigenous people and to address all the cold cases that have left countless Indigenous families wondering where their children are.
Once you learn about the history of Communism and its ideology – particularly as it has been playing out in our recent (100 years) history, it is impossible to NOT see the enemy insurgents in our governments and global corporations (who we believe had intended that, by this time many more of us would be dead).
Those who make false accusations and openly lie about visible truth are enemies of the people. These people are asking you to disbelieve your own eyes and believe their false narrative. Facebook and Twitter are working to censor this video that was played on the floor of Congress during the AG Barr Hearing this week. The mainstream media refused to play it:
Communist ideology demands full allegiance to the state and requires its subjects to turn one another in to the authorities – including their own parents and family members – if they don’t follow the prescribed narrative of the day. We are seeing the seeds of this planted in youth through the poisoning of their minds in television programming and video games where all parents are lambasted as fools and the kids are rude beyond measure.
I have personally been attacked, ridiculed, censored and thrown out of Indigenous groups on social media because I am a conservative who supports President Trump. And the people who are making these decisions are often not even Native Americans.
These groups are filled with people who have done no research of their own, and whose own communities themselves are under attack by Marxist indoctrinated youth and their “leaders.”
I shared this photo and was jeered at and told it was “Photoshopped.” I posted the link below to the C-Span video showing the Chiefs standing behind Trump at a Montana Rally in 2018, and was thrown out of the group.
The truth is that Chiefs and Tribal leaders of many nations and millions of First Nations people are Conservatives, Republicans, Veterans, Christians who also practice Native Spiritual Disciplines and Traditions, and support President Trump.
For people who claim to “hate fascism” – the censoring of alternative views of reality is hypocrisy of the highest form.
Our sources report that many of these groups are actually owned and operated in other countries (mostly European) and are actively censoring the viewpoints of Conservative Native Americans and Canadians – in groups that are supposed to be about our Culture and History!

With Crow & Coyote at the Bottom of the V
Clearly, we have reached the tipping point. The bottom of the V.
The point at which many people of all cultures remain so blinded to truth that they attack God’s messengers, burn down places of worship, accept tyranny without a whimper, kill their babies up to the point of birth, attack complete strangers for trying to earn a living to feed their children, assassinate the characters of good men who have given up EVERYTHING under constant threat of death to bring truth and justice to this world and willingly give up their right to breathe the air itself because of fear.
We’ve reached the point where Elders and even Native Church leaders are more concerned about whether you’re wearing a piece of cloth over your face during a clearly false “pandemic” (that seems to be able to tell the difference between giant corporate stores and small businesses, riots and worship services) than over the fact that more than 800,000 children go missing in America EVERY YEAR.
So – how do you reach the deeply indoctrinated?
Particularly since our light-based Spiritual and Political leaders are showing us that this is a revolution like no other – a revolution for the hearts and minds of people rather than one based in killing, a battle for truth…
How do you open hearts and minds to truth without hatred and anger?
Well, to be honest – this is where Crow and Coyote Medicine comes in very handy indeed.
As I mentioned before, Crow and Coyote dance around at the bottom of the Medicine Wheel where they wait to teach us about Creator’s life-death-rebirth cycle.
They take us to the deepest parts of our souls as individuals and as a collective so we can view the state of our lives and accept the ugliness and destruction that we have created for ourselves, our families and our communities through our choices.
They walk with us through the darkness and tell us jokes to show us our folly and help us laugh at our own humanity, and then send us back out into the game with a new perspective and sense of joy.
Crow and Coyote are the tricksters, the jokers, the masters of divine transformation. . . the tellers of the life-death-rebirth stories. . .
Crow and Coyote give us a greater understanding of this sacred cycle of all life – everywhere.
They show us how to look closely at everything in our experience and choose what will nourish us to move forward in a positive way, and they always do this through tricking us into surrender and offering us humor to get us through the rough spots of change.
Deception is the name of the game at the moment, and Coyote Medicine shows us how we make terrible choices that hurt ourselves and others because of the lies we tell and the lies we believe, and can teach us how to turn those negative circumstances into something positive through changing our attitudes and behavior.
It is the most difficult thing in life to make a great change in our worldview and way of being. For this will often require us to walk away from people, places, and things who have been important to us, but cannot come with us at this time.
But, we must understand that the tighter we cling to the old, the ugly, the tried and failed ways of being, the belief that we can control nature and other people, the attitude that we are greater than even the tiniest ant or gnat of God’s creation, the longer it will take for us to walk into the light of truth and take our place in the mighty army of Rainbow Warriors who have all come here at this sacred time to build the New Earth.
Crow and Coyote teach us that when we let go of all that we have tried and failed, when we surrender our hearts and lives to the Great Spirit, then we are given the grace to walk through the process again and try again with a different understanding of reality.
This is the realm of life-death-rebirth. The realm of the trickster and the transformer who can turn what seems to be a disaster into a raving success, who can show us ways to turn one seed into a forest of blessings. If only we will release the old, the programmed, the fear of letting go. . .
As you shall see in the video stories below, Crow and Coyote are tricksters who use ridiculousness, silliness, humor and all kinds of shenanigans to force us out of our comfort zone and distract, teach, and entertain us a long the weird path of healing. . . as long and deep as we choose to go.
Thanks to this teaching by Mike Rugnetta, the non-Native host, we learn some hilarious Native stories about Crow and Coyote, and it is great that these tales are being shared.
However, when watching, it is important to understand that First Nations people share creation myths and other sacred beliefs, history and teachings through the animals and their adventures in the stories. These are far more than children’s tales, but are embedded with teachings about the raw and wild nature of humans – and the truth that we are no better than any other creature that the Great Spirit has created.
These trickster stories also contain deep spiritual truths and lessons on how to behave and even lessons about plant medicine like Rosehips that the trained Medicine person will understand.
There are poop jokes and sexy stuff in Native teaching stories, for the Original People know that these are fundamental parts of the human experience.
As you can see, Crow is a mighty and naughty trickster who gets what he wants but pays a price and inadvertently brings water (life) to planet Earth, and so is a revered as a Creator who also brings death and chaos. . . death, rebirth.
Coyote then picks up the baton and shows us how to live by forcing us to face our self-deception and the lies we have believed. To see and accept our own failings (which helps us to accept others’ failings), and take everything less seriously.
Coyote helps Crow usher us into the new world – even as we are covered with shit, exhausted, thirsty, hungry, and carrying a bag of medicine that we’re only just learning to use. . . prancing with us into new ways of life. . .with cunning, stamina, and grace.
Together, Coyote and Crow show us how to use laughter and humor to jump-start ourselves out of our ruts, to take ourselves less seriously – and remind us to communicate with others in a light and playful way, rather than beating them over the head with truth (no matter how long you’ve been telling them, no matter how mean they’ve been to you, no matter how much restraining yourself hurts!)!!
Laughter heals a hurting heart, and the traditional Native way of correcting a child or anyone is through humor and storytelling. Grace and gentle laughter.
For humor is the father of laughter and laughter is the daughter of joy.
Crow and Coyote teach us how to take the dive, learn the lessons, get up shake out our fur and keep walking up the path with grace and humor. Trust and faith.
And this is where we begin to create new life – the New Earth.
Start with the courage to see the truth – the commitment to learn truth instead of settling for lies and propaganda from globalist media outlets and the criminals they serve.
Do whatever it takes for you to connect with your Spirit, your guides, Ancestors and the Creator – no matter which faith path you follow.
For this is the path to life, away from the darkness.
It’s why we came here at this time.
It is my honour to be your messenger.

The Medicine Wheel
The Medicine Wheel is an Ancient teaching tool used throughout history by Indigenous peoples of all nations. Native Turtle Island People use the Medicine Wheel to organize and understand our lives and as a visual aid to help us learn and teach our Traditional Culture.
Because I follow Native Turtle Island and Celtic Traditional teachings, I have found using the Medicine Wheel and its many teaching tools along with daily practice – and especially Medicine Walks in my community – are powerful healing forces that help me demonstrate surrender.
