Thunderbird Medicine – Gathering The People: Are you an Indian?

“Many of Oklahoma’s citizens have passed out of ½ blood lineage, but remain vested to their Native American heritage,” Cole said. “Removing the ½ blood degree prerequisite and expanding its range to any degree will help preserve the rights and legacy of Native American tribes and their inheritance.” – Oklahoma Representative Tom Cole, Chickasaw 

Jean Paul Baptiste – Healing in the Dreamtime

A child should be innocent, yet somewhere in his/her life something occurred. It’s a loop of guilt that we hold deeply… It’s how the mind traps us… Makes us forget we have hidden grief, memories and a past that is not fully dealt with.

Joseph White Eagle – The Sacred Walk of Balance

We balance ourselves within so we can give balance to the Sacred Hoop, for that is living in oneness with the Great Spirit who lives in all things, and that is the sharing of our love within our heart.

Thunderbird Medicine – Only YOU Can Decide Your Own Identity

We cannot come together to build a New Earth as long as people who enjoy status only by virtue of a government card are attacking those who are unrecognized by the colonizers.This is the perpetration and continuation of colonialism by Native people against their own and it drives people away. We cannot have people complaining that Native populations are dwindling on one hand while driving away their relatives with arbitrary blood quantum and status demands on the other.

The Ancestors – “Time to Unplug”

It’s good to take a break from the cares and responsibilities of the world – especially at this crazy time. Time to detach from the war (and make no mistake, we’re very much at war with powerful forces of darkness) . . . And reconnect with the Great Spirit.

Cloud Spencer Eaglebear – Why the Spirits See Us as Pitiful (and what to do about it)

To see the Universal Spirit as one for the altar of nourishment, we must remember we are all pitiful…For casting stones must take an arm that is strong enough to do so…
