Wake Up!

At the heart of all spirited traditions,  one tends to find the same thing, for we all bleed red.  By that, I mean we are all human.  Please do not let me give you the impression that the American Indian way is the only way, or the best way.  It is simple OUR way.  When you find me critical of your culture it is because the world needs a wake-up call.  There are things in all cultures that can contribute to the welfare of all, not just a privileged few.

As humans are by nature tribal animals, it seems essential to me that if the human world is to be saved and served, so to speak, then it had better go look at its roots.  Prophesies from many of nations have been warning us for some time that we are at a turning point of great consequence.  Either we regain our spiritual footing or we are doomed to more poverty, more war, and the further destruction of the Earth - destruction to the point where She can no longer support us and, like a cancer, we will be excised.  We have become like an ungrateful child who is poisoning the very breast that feeds him.  If I seem harsh, do not take it personal, racial, or cultural - but there looms a great fear and deep sorrow for all people inside of me.
