Greetings from Johannesburg South Africa

Dear Manataka,

Greetings from Johannesburg South Africa ! !

I have just finished reading the article on the Eagle feathers. This has article brings home that fact that while the First Nations are depicted as FREE and Sovereign. ..well....they are not.

Seems that all the Brothers and Sisters are targeted for what I understand from the article. ...for no apparent reason but to ruffle feathers. Many years of ruffling feathers.  Strange that something like these feathers are an important part of the Way of the First Nations.....are challenged. It seems rather petty and spiteful.

Clearly while this has been an arduous journey and fight for the basic right to use and own these precious feathers....Great Spirit has seen this and brought them back to where they belong.  Placing restrictions on these feathers is a mean and petty thing instituted by those who would try to have a grip and last say with the perceived power of authority.

But in spite of this....these feathers will never be quite...they will always serve.  There is so much spirit in and around these beautiful feathers. And as with all things in nature there is balance. Like night and day.....and you all have been through a winter and now summer is at hand for the victory that is yours!!!!


I have to say my heart was rather thunderous on reading this article. But these articles are so vital to the education of others like myself.
All education whether it is the Feathers or the poverty or news of the butterflies and walking with Spirit on the mountains....or the History that in many ways has been so easily or conveniently forgotten.

We are in a time now where technology has brought so many Brothers and Sisters together and has opened the door to many wonderous and yet frightening things.

Bringing awarness to the plight of the First Nations is reaching through the technology and across oceans and land.
To the heart soul and minds of those who know the truth and to those who begin to learn the truth.

Keep the good work going...keep teaching and reaching out to people across the world. Educate us and share with us so that we may be given the tools to go forward and be better beings for it.

Spirit will not be denied.  Love reading your Smoke Signals and learn all the time.  Blessings Love Peace and Gratitude  Caroline Clacher



Heart Pressure Point Technique

Dear Manataka,

Thank you for the Smoke Signal News. Now, I have something special to share with you that I hope you will want to share as well. Please visit my four minute Youtube video of me demonstrating the Heart Pressure Point Technique , just type in those words and enjoy my gift. It is about how I brought my wife back to life in a heart institute where the team of cardiac arrest experts quit on her and called the time of death.

Hope you will also want to share my book that is about to be published about the 62 days in the hospital and all the natural things I did for her that no one has ever done inside a mainstream hospital. 38 years of Benzene induced type 1, insulin dependent diabetes is why we were in such a state of chaos. Sincerely, Kraig L. Carroll


Interested in Diabetes

Greetings Manataka,
I am very interested by your website, it has been great to read. I don't know if you would have any information on diabetes and high blood pressure but if you do I would be very grateful if you could share it with me. I am not looking for specific medical advice or a diagnosis because I understand that a doctor should be consulted first but I am simply looking for some advice. I know someone who suffers a lot daily with physical pain, in the body and muscles, they have diabetes, high blood pressure and chronic kidney disease. I have read quite a few wellness blogs and sources of information but I can't seem to find a good method of tackling this problem.

I would be very grateful for any help at all. Warm wishes, Arooj Shah
