GRANDFATHER SEVEN HAWK EYES
Yokut Creation Story
As given by Grandfather Hawk Hoffman
A Great Flood had occurred upon Earth long, long ago.
While Earth was still covered with water, there were no living creatures
upon the land.
Then out of the sky one day glided an enormous Eagle
with a black Crow riding upon its back, searching for a place to light.
Around and around Eagle flew until he discovered a
projecting tree stump, or what appeared to be a stump, upon which he
landed to rest. There was a home at last upon the flat surface, which
was amply large enough for Eagle and Crow to roost upon.
From here, they surveyed the greenish gray water as
far as they could see. The sky was a gorgeous bright blue with a few
white drifting clouds, occasionally swirled by a passing breeze. All
seemed serene to Eagle and Crow.
Small fish were visible below the water, sometimes
leaping out of the sea playfully. Hunger caused Eagle and Crow to swoop
down, catching a meal for themselves from time to time. Soon a game
developed between the two birds to see which one would be the winner in
the fish-catching contest. Upon their return to the stump, however, they
always shared the reward.

World's Best Hand Drum Songs
- Volume 1
a great collection of hand drum songs performed by some of
the world’s finest performers. Native Americans believe that
the drum is the heartbeat of the earth mother, the heartbeat
of all native people, and a way of bringing things back into
balance. Whether dancing, singing, or listening, people
around a drum are able to connect with the spirit through
its rhythmic pounding and as a result, the drumbeat is a
focal point of ceremonies. SSCD4458

In the early 1900s, photographer Edward Sheriff
Curtis sought to capture the Native American population on film.
Curtis photographed people from 80 different tribes, and his 2,000 sepia images
depict his subjects in a serious manner — dignified and prideful.
But for Ryan Red Corn, a Native American who lives on a reservation in Oklahoma,
those images Curtis produced don't provide a full picture of his culture.
"That was kind of the end of the era of when people were taking pictures of
natives," he tells NPR's Melissa Block. "Even if you just Google 'Native
American' or 'Indian,' you'll still come up with a ridiculous lopsided inventory
of what's out there."
So Red Corn sought to create a new visual of his culture. The result is his
video, Smiling Indians. The video is four minutes long, and its smiles
range from a self-conscious grin to a full-on belly laugh.

"And there are Four Corners of the Earth that we talk about, the Four
Colors of people, and the Four Winds. You see the winds - they are spirits."
-- Grandfather William Commanda, Algonquin
The Elders teach us about the four directions. If we learn about direction, we
also learn about attention, about focus, and about power. Each direction has
spiritual power. In the morning, go outside, face the east and get still; then,
listen to your thoughts. After you have done this for a while, turn and face the
west. Get quiet once again and listen to your thoughts. Did your thinking change
when you changed direction?
Great Spirit, teach me the power of the four directions.

RedWing Vinson (Memphis, TN)
Success !! Thank you !!
The surgery was a success. Moma Bear now has circulation in her right
leg; the surgeon appeared to be well pleased with his work and we are
well pleased with all the prayers and well wishes from all the good
friends and family. Red Wing still faces six weeks of IV anti-biotic,
wound care and therapy. When she was returned to her room after the
surgery, Wally and his boss lady and Cleta Townsend (from Chattanooga)
were there to greet her. That was some very good healing Medicine. she
still has a ways to go, so we are requesting that the healing prayers
continue. For those that have asked about my arm: it is healing;
still hurts a lot. The doctor wants me to go to therapy , but
understands that it ain't gonna happen until RW is taken care of. Not
the first time I've heard the terms "hard headed" and "stubborn". I like
the term: "priorities". Sorry that the updates have been so few and
far between, but I don't have easy access to a computer. I will send
updates as I can.

Red Wing (Nana,

finally clear and the healing can begin. She is starting a new
therapy (not for the squeamish): Transfer

works. We are
to the healing (and I imagine the hospital staff is looking
forward to not seeing me every time they look up). For the most
part, they've been great (even though dangerously understaffed).

phone in her room. Baptist

For those that have asked: I'm gaining more use
of my arm (last time I saw the doctor, he said it was healing
and wanted me to go to therapy). I canceled the appointment with
him yesterday and reset for the 20th, because it wasn't a good
time for Red Wing to be without her guard dog (me). In the mean
time: She has kept you all in her prayers and thanks you (each
and every one) for yours. For now, we need to get her healed and
on her feet; able to care for herself; me to get my arm back and
find a job. Know anybody looking for a one armed fat man ????

Jay King (North Carolina) Jay is in ICU he went into Septic shock
from C dif. The third round of antibiotics ended and a week later the C dif
came back on him to the extent it caused the septic shock. They did a
colostomy yesterday. Found two large polyps but because of the inflammation
from C dif too much risk of bleeding. Doc said he thinks he can get
infection cleared up in 2 weeks so in 4 weeks another colostomy will be done
and they will be removed. He has had one health crisis after another since
last May. Doc said polyps are not cancer but could be "on down the road" so
safe to wait to remove but important to remove them then. Sat he was rushed
to hospital. Four docs worked on him in trauma unit. At one point his BP
dropped so ;low he lost consciousness. The docs were even bringing their
manuals in for reference. He is feeling much better and hopes to get some
solid food today. He has gained back 20 of the 55 pounds he had lost. Thanks
to a med to increase appetite and his discovery that the nutritional
supplement drink Boost tasted like a choc milkshake, Barbara Skidmore

Barbra (Sundove) just called asking for prayers for her grandson. A few
years back a case in Fla was headlines everywhere, A daycare center ran by a man
and woman (mother and son I think) had been beating and molesting the children.
Braedon Barbs grandson was one of those kids he also was beaten and locked in a
closet. During the trial it took 3 mos for court to issue restraint order for
Braedons protection, The people were found guilty and sent to prison. Braedon
has had problems on and off sence and been in counseling. Today as Barb and her
daughter were taking Braedon to his psychiatrist appointment he was happily
playing a video game in the back seat. Suddenly he attacked Barb beating her in
the head with the game ,hitting ,kicking and biting her. I think he is 8b yrs
old now. They got him to Doctor where he was admitted to the hospital under lock
down. The doc explained to Braedon with the guards and locks no one could get to
him. They start evaluating him at &AM and then Doc told Barb to go home and get
another restraining order.Hope it doesn't take 3 mos. A week or so ago Barb took
Braedon to the beach, They went in a little store for snacks. When they turned
to leave three people back in the line stood the molester. He is out of prison.
Please pray for this little boy and his family. love and prayers ~Ruth

Graybeard Vinson (Memphis, TN)
From Graybeard: "I've received several request for
updates and questions "really" are, but
have a lot of difficulty trying to
type totally one handed even with my one fingered
hunt and miss style. The saga begins here:
seem to have reached a plateau with Red Wing's
healing and she is still having a lot of pain; (Doctors
removed the toe on Tuesday, November 16.)
next step is the vascular surgeon to increase blood
flow to the wound. The test have been done, but now,
getting her back to the surgeon's office is a bit of
a problem. She isn't an invalid; not bedridden; can
walk a bit but can't stand long on that foot or use
steps. If she had to care for herself (alone) a fall
could be a strong possibility. We have a transport
chair that must be pushed to move (two hands) and no
part two: Today is day fourteen of a broken left arm
(just below the shoulder) with a sling that does
little to immobilize the break. I kinda set it my
self so I could drive home because there was no one
to stay with RW and waited 'till some one was here
before going to the ER for X-rays and a sling.
Bathing consist of baby wipes; dressing takes a
concerted effort from both of us; trying to cook or
wash dishes could make an interesting reality show;
I'm not supposed to drive. My sister did bring over
a container of soup; one of chili along with one of
chicken. A neighbor brought over a leftover meal
that was stretched into two. Grateful for both.
The arm is going to require surgery (screws and
maybe a plate) for repair. I asked about having it
done under a local so I could go home afterward and
"that's impossible" in a tone that made it sound
like "you're nuts". I can't/ I won't have it done
without someone to stay with Helen while I'm out of
action; I can not / will NOT leave her alone while I
lounge around in a hospital. They tend to stand you
up shortly after surgery; with my intense dislike of
hospitals; if I get my feet under me and can get
dressed, I have no reason to stay. 02-15-11

A friend of Healing Spring is in need of assistance. A few
days ago, Teresa Myers' housemate, Ann Mote, was found
buried in the blizzard snow. Teresa, who is blind and on
disability, is overwhelmed. Ann had serious health issues
and required a housemate, as did Teresa. They have been
friends for over 30 years and for the last 15 years have
shared expenses to make ends meet. As of this date, Teresa
is forced to move with less than and month to make
arrangements and grieve the unexpected loss of her friend.
The best guess is a medication mix up and or a medication
The family is waiting for an autopsy.
Teresa has many friends from the community willing to help
with the physical aspect of a move etc. The need is for
financial support during the next month.
help? Teresa would like time to work with
Ann's family and personal affects. Another month in the
current rental will help ease the emotional stress and an
immediate move. The estimated monies required for March rent
or a move would be about $800.00. If you can help, send a
check to Healing Spring Box 9836
Springfield MO 65801 and Healing Spring will send a check
to Teresa. Please make a note if you require a tax
receipt. In all of this, keep Teresa
and all in your prayers. ~Susan Phillips 02-05-11

I'm sending out this email asking for your prayers. My daughter,
Lorelle Gwendolyn Mike (pronounced Lori-elle) will be having surgery
this Wednesday, Jan. 12, 2011. She was born on June 23, 2010, 5 weeks
early. At birth doctors were quick to discover a few problems that
immediately concerned them. But we both have the same faith and
immediately called on the Lord for his mercy and grace. We are blessed
with family who strongly believe in prayer and healing, so they were
notified right away as well. As time went on and doctors keep telling us
negative reports about our baby... Loren & I kept our faith, stayed
strong and said "NO! we will not believe any of this. We put all our
trust in the Lord. Lorelle is going to be just fine. And no matter what,
we're going to love her unconditionally." That was the agreement we made
together. Here is
what the doctors told us:
1. Lorelle's head is small. We're worried about her brain
development. She will most likely be disabled in ways we don't know yet,
only time will tell. Lorelle was diagnosed with Microcephaly.
2. Lorelle was born with an enlarged abdomen. We think it
might be her kidneys. (so many test & even a surgery was performed) They
discover its a condition called Urogential Sinus.
A urogenital sinus anomaly is a
defect present at birth in which the vagina and
urethra open into a common
channel, rather than separately.
A catheter is then
placed in her bladder area to help her urinate. The connect between her
bladder and mega vagina was allowing urine to fill up inside her mega
vagina, which then enlarged her stomach area.
3. There's a click in her left hip. Lorelle has hip
dysplasia. She will have to wear a harness to keep her hip in place.
So with all of this coming at us, we knew what we had to
do. GIVE IT GOD! Now here is some GREAT news...
1. Lorelle has been meeting her milestones with her
development. She shows NO signs of being disabled. Her head is gradually
growing. She has her own personality!
2. This surgery that is taking place on Wednesday is not
a complicated procedure. Her surgeon, Dr. Lacey is confident & reassured
us that this is fixable.
3. Lorelle blew away her orthopedic doctor, Dr. Shindell!
Her hips are well. She no longer has to wear the harness... she was off
of it way before the doctor expected.
Baby Lo is our gift from God. I know and believe that He
is the Great Physician! I just ask that you believe with me and pray for
my daugther. I encourage you to share this with your prayer circle. I
appreciate your time to get to know Lorelle. If you haven't met her, I'm
sure someday soon you will. You will be shocked by her red hair and cute
chubby cheeks. Please feel free to contact me. Thank you and may you be
blessed. You are loved! Sincerely, ~Bonnie Lynn,
(AZ) This prayer request is for my sons
Edwin and Edmund and daughters, Lenore and Tonita, and for myself, Carlena.
I am a single parent of four kids. I have two grand kids. Heather is
my daughter-inlaw and Nate is my son-inlaw. I want this coming year to be
less financial problem for myself to be happy again. And safety for my kids and
their job. Protective of any harm with this new year for each one of my
child. At times, I need help and I just continue to pray, I have strong belief
in this Creator. I have no one to turn too at times, my father is now in the
spirit world, and my mother is in the nursing home. It gets so hard sometimes,
and make things possible for me with new year! Thanks! - Carlena Tuni 12-29-10
McLaughlin (Yonker, NY)
I write today because I am asking for your special prayers for the sick. I
am not well. I have very bad pains shooting down into my leg and the surgeon is
still trying to find the problem. I have a 90% heart artery clogged and have to
have a stint put in it or I am in danger of a heart attack or stroke. I am very
nervous but I keep still with my daily prayers. I remembered when I had back
surgery how you and our family in Manataka prayed for me. To this day I truly
believe that it was those prayers that sustained me through it all. I have a
lot before me and this is why I would be more than honored if you could pray for
me once again? ~Stands Different
