Monolith raises questions about ancient Mexican culture
Deep in the Huastec jungle (Mexico) the enormous carved stone
monolith stands, suspended over the pool of water where a team of
archaeologists discovered it. A powerful woman stands at the center
of the carving, flanked by two smaller decapitated women. A stream
of liquid flows from the headless women toward the woman in the
center. The women on each side are thought to represent
priestesses, and the liquid represents the life force, while the
woman at the center represents Mother Earth; so the priestesses seem
to be nurturing the Earth with their life force. The truth is,
however, nobody knows for sure what these stones mean.
thing is fairly certain - because of the recurrence of the number
13, the monolith seems to be a lunar calendar of some sort. That's
why it set the archaeological world abuzz with discussion when it
was unveiled in November, 2006. It is believed to have been created
around 600 BCE - 2,000 years before what was previously the oldest
discovered calendar in the Americas, the Aztec Calendar, which dates
to 1400 CE.
"What this discovery did was to force us to stop, turn around and
dig deeper into the history of the Huastecan groups to re-evaluate
them," said Guillermo Ahuja, the lead archaeologist at Tamtoc who
discovered the stone tablet, or Monolith 32, as it's called. The
discovery was especially surprising given that the Huastec people
were thought to be a relatively recent culture. Now archaeologists
are wondering whether the Huastecs - or their predecessors, the
Proto-Huastecs - might have played a bigger role in the development
of Mesoamerica than previously thought. It has also raised questions
about whether the Olmecs might have had an influence in the region,
since there are cultural similarities, or whether there might have
been a third group of people, the so-called Mother Culture, that
dominated the area first.
What is known is that Tamtoc was inhabited by a sophisticated people
who enjoyed a high standard of living for the time, with one of the
most sophisticated hydraulic systems in Mesoamerica. It was first
excavated by a group of French archaeologists in the 1960s, but
their project was short-lived, and work did not begin on the site in
earnest until 2001. It's the only major Huastec archaeological site,
and like the Huastec people themselves, it is shrouded in mystery.

elements, for it , as do most terms in our culture, has symbolic
significance and lessons to teach us and the generations to
There are fifteen poles in the average lodge and each one has
symbolic meaning attached to them, each one carries a lesson.

the finned ones, the creepy crawlers, the solid ones...or
standing ones. To allow each being to be as they are without
judgment or ridicule, to their face or behind their back.
Respecting them for who they are, where they are, at the level
of growth and development that they are.
4. Humility: knowing we are no less and certainly no more than
another, knowing that we are only a small part of the total

was created by a higher power and knowing that we too make
errors on our life walk.

At the place where the Waters comes out from the womb, a
ceremony of three days took place, where Blue Star Woman show us
the way of the new encounter of the power that human being has,
for the world of the enchanted flower is here, and human being
is awakening into their own realization of the self.
Human being is ready now to embrace the power given since the
beginning of time, powers that will awaken into a higher
consciousness, and a new way to perceive reality…
She has always been here, leading the way, she was hidden for
the ones that cannot see, she was in silence for the ones that
cannot heard, She has recognize you inside of her, can you
recognize her in you? She is the medicine, and the way, she is
the door of the world of the enchanted flower, and the door is
wide open, for her love is the way…
Many shakings will have this planet, for the floor where people
is standing in the sacred dance is moving, now, human being is
able to stand at the new world, and the new perception have been
born for the many, for there is many worlds after that that will
be awaken in the consciousness of the people.
Inner Ecology Healing
By Leonardo Boff,
times of crisis such as ours we seek sources of inspiration where ever they
may be found.
One is inner ecology.
To evaluate its importance we must understand that our relationship with the
Earth, at least in recent centuries, has been based on false ethical and
spiritual premises: anthropocentrism, negation of the intrinsic value of
every being, domination of the Earth, and degradation of her resources. Such
premises have produced the present unhealthy state of the Earth, which
is reflected in the human psyche.
In the same way that there exists
an external ecology, there also exists an inner
ecology, comprised of solidarity, feelings of re-bonding with the
whole, caring and loving. These ecologies are umbilically linked. That is
what is known as environmental psychology, or, in E.
Wilson's expression, biofilia. Its base is not only anthropologic
but also cosmologic, because the universe itself, according to well known
astrophysicists, Brian Swimme, among others, has a spiritual depth. The
universe is not comprised just of a gathering of objects, but of the network
of inter-relations among them, becoming subjects that exchange information
and become richer.
Starting with inner
ecology, the Earth, the Sun, the Moon, the trees, the mountains and the
animals are not only just there, outside. Rather, they live in us, as
figures and symbols charged with emotion. The experiences -good or
traumatic- that we may have had with these realities have left profound
imprints in our psyches. This explains our aversion towards some, or the
affinity we feel towards others.
Such symbols form a true inner
ecology, the deciphering of which was one of the spiritual
conquests of the XX century, with Freud, Jung, Adler, Lacan, Hillmann and
others. In our deepest selves, according to C.G. Jung, shines the archetype
of the Imago Dei, of the Absolute. No-one worked better than Viktor
Frankl with this dimension, which he called the spiritual unconscious,
and the moderns call the mystical mind, or the God spot,
in the brain. In the final analysis, that spiritual unconscious is the
expression of the very spirituality of the Earth and of the universe
that erupted through us, who are the conscious part of the universe and of

By Harvey Walks
With Hawks Doyle,
Over time, toxins build up in the body as the result of the pollutants in
the air we breathe, the chemicals, preservatives, and other things in the food
chain, the water and others things that we consume in life. Often the body seeks
to rid itself of those toxins and poisons from our tissues and organs that store
these toxins when the body becomes saturated. This build up of chemical,
poisons, pollutants and other things can cause our joints to become stiff, our
organs to function incorrectly and also can cause arthritis and other diseases.
I call this the slow death. This process begins early in life and we continue
each day to destroy our bodies. We should be teaching our young people to adjust
their eating habits and exercise daily to attain longevity in life. No we just
keep giving them junk food and take them through the fast food drive through and
don’t think of how much we are hurting our own children or grand children.
Obesity is one of the fastest ways of killing yourself. If you start looking at
your children, relatives, and neighbors you will see that we are a nation in
distress. Obesity is killing America.
Now let’s get back to the toxins. They enter the bloodstream, causing the
body to experience a “low” or “down” cycle.

THE SOAP THAT GROWS ON TREESTM
"To me, if you're Indian, you're Indian. You don't have to put on your
buckskin, beads, and feathers, and stuff like that." -Cecilia
The most important thing that determines who we are is on our insides, not our
outsides. If we are Indian inside, that's all that matters. Being Indian means
to think right, to be spiritual and to pray. Feathers and beads don't make us
Indian. Being Indian means to have a good heart and a good mind.

of Ernestine Cody, the three Apache Women she writes about and all

"When I curated the exhibition, "Ndee:
The Children of Changing Woman", I was very
much lead by a spirit I came to communicate with through prayer. There
were times when people with whom I worked saw the emotions that were
evoked in me, for a people I loved so dearly. These are very sacred
things to have an opportunity to experience. They are also very special,
so special that I do not want to live without them. I have continued to
study, ponder, and pray so that I can retain this special communication
with a people who care for me. They are willing to impart to the world
the knowledge of things that are truly important to us in this day and

Ga-Na-S-Da-Tsi (Sassafras Tea)
Ingredients: Red Sassafras roots
To make a tea, boil a few pieces of the root in water until it
is the desired strength. Sweeten with honey if desired. Serve
hot or cold.
Note: Gather and wash the roots of the red sassafras. Do
this in the spring before the sap begins to rise. Store for
future use. Some natural food stores carry sassafras root in a
dried form. It will resemble wood chips (the kind used when
barbequeing). The "store bought" variety work just as well.
Sassafras tea tastes like watered down root beer and is
really very good.
Corn Meal Mush
thin shelled hickory nuts. Beat hull and all in the corn
beater until it can be rolled into a ball. Make whatever
size balls are convenient to use. Pour boiling water over
this to make a thick gruel. Pour the gruel over corn and
beans that have been cooked separately, then mixed together.
Oo-ga-ma (Possum Grape Drink)
Possum grapes, dried *
Possum grapes are also known as Muscadine grapes
* Directions: Gather ripe possum
grapes - the kind that are still sour after they ripen when the
frost has fallen on them. Hang up for winter use.
To prepare: Shell off the grapes from the stems, wash, and
stew them in water. When they are done, mash in the water they
were cooked in. Let this sit until the seed settle, then strain,
reserving liquid. Put the juice back on the fire and and bring
to a boil. Add a little cornmeal to thicken the juice. Continue
cooking until the meal is done. Remove from the fire and drink
hot or cold. Sweeten, if desired.
Uwaga (Oo-Wa-Ga - Old Field Apricot Drink)
old field apricots
(field apricots are the fruit of the passion flower)
Hull out the seed and pulp, and put on to boil, discarding
skins. Add a tiny bit of soda to make the seeds separate from
the pulp. Squash out the pulp, straining the mixture through a
cloth. Drink hot.

Food Security and Sustainability
For The Times Ahead
By Harvest McCampbell, BioDiverse
There have been many books over
the years written about food security, home gardens, disaster
preparedness, survival skills and green living. In Food
Security and Sustainability For The Times Ahead, author
Harvest McCampbell addresses these issues in a refreshing,
readable style that is relevant for the times we live in right
The book speaks to us in a
personal and all-inclusive tone. Whether you live in the
country, the suburbs or the city, you’ll find practical, easy to
understand information that illustrates what we can do for
ourselves and explains how our actions can impact the community
and the world.
McCampbell takes us on a journey
that lays the foundation for why we should think about creating
more sustainable lifestyles. She shares with us the rich wealth
of knowledge and spiritual understanding passed on to her by her
grandmother, as well as her own investigation and research of
the issues and dilemmas which face us today, including global
climate change and economic instability.
She shares with the reader how we
are affected by the commercial trading of mass-produced
commodities such as corn, rice and grains, and how our own
purchasing habits affect the local and global market. Blending
the wisdom of Native American elders given to her first-hand
from her relatives with the reality of today’s global
environment and economy, Harvest explains the meaning of
sustainability and why it matters.
Food is the focus of this work,
but the book encompasses a whole body of knowledge that extends
well beyond what we need to know about what we eat. Each brief
chapter moves us forward from understanding what sustainability
means on a personal and global level to what specific positive
actions are appropriate for each reader’s own situation. There
are no superfluous words. McCampbell gives her readers this
wealth of knowledge, and a substantial resource section, in 144
Easy to read and remarkably well
referenced, Food Security and Sustainability For The Times
Ahead helps us think about where we live and how we can
improve our quality of living and security where we are.
Harvest helps the reader understand what foods are good to store
and which are not, how to prepare food for storage and store it
safely, how to decide what an individual or family should have
on hand, where and how one can grow a garden even if they live
in an urban setting, the importance of a balanced diet, herbal
and natural supplements and resources for obtaining them; there
is even a chapter devoted to learning useful skills, and to the
etiquette of becoming an apprentice to someone who has a skill
you ‘d like to learn.
If you’ve never owned a Swiss
army knife or a sturdy pair of gloves, don’t worry. Food
Security and Sustainability For The Times Ahead is written
in a language we can all comprehend, regardless of how much
experience we do or don’t have at thinking for ourselves.
Rarely have I encountered a book
on any subject that gives the reader so much useful information
in such a concise, user friendly and digestible format. It is a
valuable, practical tool. It does not ask us to become
something we are not; instead, it shows us how we can start from
where we are today to create greater personal security for
ourselves, our families and even our communities, and take pride
and enjoyment in the process.

I Heard The Raven Sing
By Osceola Birdman Waters
to Billy White Fox
I can hear the raven sing,
I can hear the raven sing,
He calls out my name,
I can hear the raven sing,
He calls out to me,
His song is singing in the wind,
I can hear the raven sing,
Thunder breaks a silent moment,
Then he calls out my name,
A spiritual glow envelops,
Medicine power develops,
As the raven sings,
A rainbow doubled,
My minds not troubled,
As I hear the raven sing,
It’s time to go home,
My ancestors wait for me,
The welcome hand is extended,
My place around the council fire reserved,
I hear the raven sing,
There all that was, is preserved,
And the message of the raven heard.
My Vision my Dream.

Foreman, 72, Redding, CA
Redding Rancheria's first tribal
chairman and a
pioneer in north state American Indian health clinics, died
Wednesday after a long illness. He was 72.
An Achumawi Pit
River Indian, Foreman was remembered Thursday by friends and
family as a tireless advocate for Indian rights, skilled
communicator and loyal patriarch. He was born June 12, 1936,
in Lake County.
A veteran of the
U.S. Navy, he worked in construction as did his father, said
daughter Carla Maslin of Redding. In the late 1960s, he
began his campaign to get Indians health care in the north
state. His efforts paid off in 1971, with the opening of the
federally financed Shasta-Trinity-Siskiyou Rural Indian
Health Center in Anderson. "Bobby was a real devoted guy to
his tribe," said Everett Freeman, tribal chairman of the
Paskenta Band of Nomlaki Indians near Corning. "He almost
single-handedly got Indian health to where it is today."
Larry McClanahan, a Navajo Indian who moved to Cottonwood
from Arizona in 1972, said Foreman was one of the first
people he met in the north state. He and his family were
glad to receive clinic services. "He took me as I
was," McClanahan recalled. "He was a man that was concerned
for people." Rod Lindsay, a Shasta Lake city councilman who
works with the Office of Indian Education for the Anderson
Union High School District, also met Foreman through the
clinic. Lindsay said Foreman was a mentor for many, sharing
his knowledge of culture and history with the young.
Foreman also was instrumental in organizing the Redding
Rancheria Indian Health Clinic on Churn Creek Road and
served as director, later retiring as self-governance
coordinator for the rancheria, Maslin said. In 1985,
when the rancheria regained its tribal status, Foreman was
elected as its first chairman and subsequently served on the
tribal council. But in 2004, he and all his family
members were disenrolled after a bitter dispute over his
mother's maternal lineage. The struggle took a toll on
his health, Maslin said. Foreman suffered from heart and
kidney problems, she said. Leah Harper, a family friend of
more than 20 years who does native medicine work in Redding,
said she wanted to stand out in front of the Churn Creek
clinic with a "thank you" banner in Foreman's honor. "I
believe that Bob had the heart of the native people and he
wanted to make a difference for them," she said. "Bob was
loving and the children are loving and they work very hard."
In addition to Maslin, Foreman is survived by three
daughters and three sons, as well as 15 grandchildren and 14
great-grandchildren. Funeral services are pending. For her
part, Maslin is grateful her father last year was able to do
something he'd always wanted - to see the Grand Canyon. "He
actually got emotional just looking at it," she said. "He
was in awe of its beauty and couldn't believe the world had
such a beautiful place."
