Tobacco is the most sacred of plants for it is this dear brother who has given his very life for us to use in communicating with the Great Spirit. When we are in prayer, in ceremony, or healing times, tobacco carries the words from our hearts and minds to the Great Spirit through his sacred smoke.
Opposition to the removal was led by Chief John Ross, a mixed-blood of Scottish and one-eighth Cherokee descent. The Ross party and most Cherokees opposed the New Echota Treaty, but Georgia and the U.S. government prevailed and used it as justification to force almost all of the 17,000 Cherokees from their southeastern homeland.”
All honor and respect to our great ancestor, Chief John Ross.

When we use our Good Mind to explore and understand the obstacles in our paths (often brought to us through conflict with our brothers and sisters), then the Spirit will slowly lead us to see the blockages within our Selves – in the different quadrants of our Medicine Wheel – that are asking for our attention.
Because humans have forgotten that we (all of Chi Manitou’s children) are related and connected, we have begun to think we are superior to our relatives in the other families of beings. We jeer at Pigeon and call her mean names like “flying rat” instead of taking the time to get to know her and to learn her lessons.
