Helping Manataka

Halito Manataka,

I just found your site. Its very compelling. Has every tribe in North America seen this letter. Perhaps with more tribal backing it would gain more attention. There has been some positive actions happening in Oklahoma these past few years.  From your news I see you are not pro Israel yet there has been some progress with ~14 tribes officially acknowledging Isreal's statehood and nation. Although it had nothing to do with this country it did cause a positive shift ( I opine for spiritual reasons).  Nonetheless. It seems your letter needs a lot more signatures to gain more attention.  Has it been sent to all tribes in northern America?    Curt Landry ministries works closely with first nations in Oklahoma perhaps there are people who can help there. 


Thank you for reading this email. I want to do my part in restoring the America's as much as one person can although no one can return to the past yet we can create a better and healed future for all.  Thank you. ~ T. C.

How to heal your body in 15 days


Dear Manataka,


I am not sure when the article, How to Heal Your Body in 15 Days, was published, but thank you.  My friend Christy, a yoga instructor.. Developed breast cancer two years ago. After a double mysectomy, another tumor was found. After a second round with chemo and radiation...she was sent away( cancer free).  Two months later..lung cancer.  She's as close to a sister, as there is. I'm desperate. Your article struck a chord.  So thank you.  ~Rochelle Parker


Pathkiller Descendants

Hello Manataka,

I know this is sort of a long shot, but I happened to come across a web page that the Manataka American Indian Council sponsored. The link is hyperlinked:

My family has been tracing its lineage recently and we discovered that we are descendants of Chief Pathkiller. I was hoping that there might be some documents or other information that the Council would have to help me gain more understanding on my heritage. Reading through the website, there was a lot of information provided that really helped us.

Any information is very much appreciated, whether it is documents, stories, or pictures. I'm excited to learn about my family's history.  Thanks for your time,   Sara Schoening, South Dakota State University



Spiritual Friends:


If you have any Native American people in your community with alcohol addiction, there is a study group for Native Americans that is based on the medicine wheel and AA.  Wellbriety has groups nationally, as well as books and workbooks. Please share with those in need.....

Ghost Dance

Good Morning Manataka!


It seems I have now begun on my own spiritual journey as a teacher, healer and motivator. I am uncertain how it will progress but things will be revealed in time, but for now I see myself as still honing my gifts but the great spirit sees it differently.  I had 3 visits in recent days one was the great spirit, the energy was of such immensity it caused me to look upwards and there in the "grandmother" tree on my property was a bald eagle.  He spoke to me but it fell on deaf ears, a few days later I received a call for a job working with troubled kenaitzi youth, this interview is set for tomorrow april 6th, but still I did not understand the message the next day taking a nap visions of a high flying thunderbird and a sea otter the energy sent to the very core of my being a message.  This time I heard the message my spiritual work is at hand it has been seven years. I began my journey with my awakening and discovering my true purpose struggling with fear, grounding, and focusing and becoming enlightened and discovering wisdom. Last night I sensed a spiritual presence of a past life, I am not her but yet similar to her, even now I sense the  burning of creative energy like fire.    In four years time humanity will hear the message but first the lesson of the Sweat Lodge must be known and in that time the Indian Nation will be built anew tearing down the walls of division and disempowerment that has been set into place. ~Sarah Peck


Again I write to u regarding prophecy of white buffalo calf woman.


As in prophecy of 2 warriors meeting up with her that has been ongoing, seperation of the unenlightened and enlightened regarding humanity at large....bring into play the sweatlodge this began with China's financial breakdown last year. Bring it forward to now, with that of oil prices having collapsed. World's economy revolves around oil (as we all know.) Algorithms have been played with regarding cost of living as well as oil prices. As cost in oil goes up so too will cost of living. Wheelbarrow recession will take effect in USA (Some places in the world already it has begun.) When the US feels it, it will be felt like that of a flesh eating disease. Either people will self destruct or come together as in the two warriors meeting W.B.C.W.
Up to now the world has been in consumption mode, however, this mode will with the world-wide recession will be forced into learning how to "SWEAT" It Out this is WBCW teaching regarding the sweatlodge...Use it up, wear it out, make do with what you've got, or do without.


On the other end regarding the oil collapse is my thoughts are more along the line of NWO setting the stage to further their control this thought is reflected with other's who are awakened they see this as well.


More connections are these that go back to the ghost dance in 1889 by Wovoka.  Which connects to the rainbow bridge and white buffalo calf woman. Starting with 1889 and adding 7 that number is tied to major events either with the Indian Nation or to major events regarding the United States. This includes the United Nations and the twin tower collapse in 2001as well as the last economic collapse in 2008.  If u do the research regarding the battle at Wounded Knee u will find that 3 of the 5 power families that are connected to major world events including both world wars were behind that one horrendous brutal act. 

Myself as well as many who are part of the rainbow bridge are beginning to place ourselves into position and honing our spiritual gifts in the physical...preparation mode to help those who would be lost in the dark find the light as was fortold by spiritual leaders in many prophecies throughout the world.  ~Sarah Peck


What Does A Spiritual Awakening Feel Like?


Dear Manataka,

On your website: "A spiritual Awakening should not be confused with 'enlightenment,' that may be defined as an intellectual understanding of higher religious principals." -


Spirituality and religion are two different principles. One may be spiritual without being religious, or being religious devoid of spirituality.  Best wishes, Philip Dawes

Sacred Nature of the Mountain

Greetings Manataka,
My husband and I live across the street from Manataka and recognize the sacred Nature of the Mountain.  Before we hike we give thanks to the land and beings who allow us into their home.   We feel the deep resistance of the administrative body in Hot Springs National Park to any First Nations recognition.  They have no attachment to the land and the beings that reside within the park.  Containing the springs for profit in the bathhouses is their primary concern.  We would be interested learn more about your efforts.  Kindest Thoughts and Wishes, Lee Hiller Art and Photography,


World Images and Messages are Tricky

Hello Manataka,

Please forgive me for writing to you. I am not sure what is happening to me - I think during these last couple of days  several animal guides appeared and tonight a snake  spoke in the dream - angry or a warning.  I fear snakes and did not understand the words.  I am probably too spoiled and proud to be sensitive enough to understand the warning in time - I do not know if it concerns only me or also others. IN this world images and messages are tricky. Please be vigilant.  Thanking you for being there.  ~Jasmin Genzel
