For ten days in June, the Yankton Sioux Reservation on the windswept high plains
of South Dakota was a gathering place for indigenous tribal leaders from around
the globe and hundreds of Native and Euro-American listeners. The occasion was
the Star Knowledge Conference and Sun Dance, convoked by Lakota (Sioux)
spiritual leader Standing Elk (Laurance Zephier) in response to a vision he
experienced. The vision showed that Native American spiritual knowledge about
the Star Nations was to be shared with the larger non-Native world. This
Conference also fulfilled ancient Hopi and Lakota prophecies.
Spiritual shamans from the Plains tribes (Lakota, Oglala, Dakota, Blackfoot,
Nakota) were joined by spokespersons from the Eastern (Iroquois, Oneida, Seneca
and Choctaw) and Southwest (Hopi, Yaqui and Mayan) tribes. In addition, the
chief Maori shaman came from New Zealand at the southern end of the globe, as
well as a professional who formally resided in the land of the Saami people from
the part of Scandinavia above the Arctic Circle.
The Native teachers came because they had seen signs then occurring which had
been predicted by ancient prophecies. These signs signified to them that the
time had come to speak openly about their most closely-held oral traditions.
These traditions include their origin from the stars, the influence of Star
People visitors on the formation of their culture and their spiritual beliefs
and ceremonies, and the imminent return of the Star Nations. Read More...
Life-or-Death Reasons Why Climate, Food,
and Native American Activists Need to
Keep Working Together
On Tuesday, January 24,
Donald Trump signed presidential memorandums to revive the controversial
Keystone XL and Dakota Access oil pipelines—two major dirty oil and fracking
pipelines halted by the Obama administration after massive resistance from
indigenous, climate and other public interest groups, including food activists.
As indigenous leader Winona LaDuke pointed out (article link below) Trump’s push
to revive these climate and environmentally destructive pipelines amount to
nothing less than a “Declaration of War.” Within 24 hours of Trump’s dirty
energy decree, thousands of people across the country took to the streets in
protest, while hundreds of thousands more expressed their opposition and anger
on social media.
Several months ago, just
before Thanksgiving, my national organization, the Organic Consumers Association
raised $40,000 from our members to provide organic food and other support to the
Standing Rock protests. Many from our staff and volunteer network traveled to
Standing Rock or participated in local picket lines and protests. Tens of
thousands signed our petitions. Literally several million more people from other
organizations did the same, inspired by the courage, determination, and moral
clarity of the indigenous people. For the first time in recent history, a
critical mass of Native American, environmental, food, justice, student, and
other organizations successfully worked together, linking issues (water, food,
climate, and native sovereignty) and constituencies, gradually winning over the
hearts and minds of a large segment of the body politic.
SPIRITUAL MEDICINE - CEREMONY
Coca, and The Sacred Plants of the Incas -
The Shamanic World of the Andes
by Howard G Charing
The Incas regarded coca as "the divine plant" mainly because of its property
of imparting endurance, nevertheless its use was entwined with every aspect of
life; the art, mythology, culture and economy of the Inca Empire.
Millions of Indians have chewed coca on a daily basis for many hundreds of
years, yet never has a plant been so misrepresented and its use so controlled by
prejudice and ignorance, including up to the present day. The Conquistadors
considered it an idle and offensive habit to be prohibited, but it was soon seen
that the Indians could not work without coca even when forced to do so.
The coca leaf has been sacred to Andean people since the dawn of pre-Colombian
civilization. Doris Rivera Lenz, a renowned Andean Ceremonialist, healer, and
Coca leaf Diviner, when asked about the source of the information she divines
from them, she says:
"They give me such a powerful awareness it is as though an energy comes into me
from just touching them. I invoke Mother Nature and the spirit of the coca, and
with just seven leaves, the answer comes, as though through an open doorway."

Sacred White Buffalo
Experience: Going Native, in a Good Way
By Gale Courey Toensing,
Indian Country Today Media Network
this were The Onion, the headline would
be something funny like MIDDLE-AGED
WHITE WOMAN FINDS GOD IN LAKOTA SWEAT
But it’s Indian Country Today Media
Network and I didn’t find God. What I
found was a sizeable chunk of myself, a
really effective purification practice
for body, mind and emotions, and a major
point of reference on my somewhat
checkered spiritual journey.
But if you know Lakota people, you’ll
find my headline funny. They’re always
talking about doing everything “in a
good way”—from participating in ceremony
to taking out the garbage. It cracks me
up. So after seven years of being around
Indian people as a reporter for ICTMN,
I’m finally going Native—in a good
way—thanks to ceremony.
I give thanks to Yellow Medicine Dancing
Boy, the sacred white buffalo calf born
June 16 on Peter Fay’s ranch in Goshen,
Connecticut, for bringing me to the
sweat lodge, and thanks to Peter for
taking such good care of him.

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.
Spanish exploration give a sketchy description of the travels of Hernando De
his Conquistadors and the exact route taken by De Soto's men remains
controversial even though recent theories developed by history
revisionists are proven to be incorrect . As
you can see from the map left (click to enlarge), attempts to equate every
feature in the expedition narratives with some spot on a modern map result in
convoluted routes that seem implausible to most historians.
The four narratives of the expedition are
(1) that of Rodrigo Ranjel, De Soto's secretary, (2) that of Luis Hernandez de Biedma, who had charge of the King's interests, (3) that of the anonymous
Gentleman of Elvas, who belonged to a Portuguese contingent, and (4) that of
Garcilaso de la Vega, the longest, most romantic and least reliable of the
narratives but one not to be ignored.

Army nods for Dakota Access pipeline; Tribe vows action
BY ASSOCIATED PRESS
BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — The developer of the stalled Dakota Access oil
pipeline could get clearance from the Army as early as Wednesday to
finish the $3.8 billion project, though the American Indian tribe that
has led the battle against the project for months has vowed to continue
The Army said Tuesday that it will allow the four-state pipeline to
cross under a Missouri River reservoir in North Dakota, the last big
chunk of construction. The Standing Rock Sioux promised to fight the
development in court.
The Army intends to cancel further environmental study and allow the
Lake Oahe crossing, according to court documents the Justice Department
filed that include letters to members of Congress from Deputy Assistant
Army Secretary Paul Cramer.
The 1,200-mile pipeline would carry North Dakota oil through the Dakotas
and Iowa to a shipping point in Illinois. Dallas-based developer Energy
Transfer Partners had hoped to have the pipeline operating by the end of
2016, but construction has been stalled while the Army Corps of
Engineers and the company battled in court over the crossing.

In 1996, Chief Arvol Looking Horse started the annual World Peace and Prayer Day.
The first WPPD ceremony was held at Gray Horn Butte in Wyoming following a
horseback ride from the Wahpeton Dakota reservation in Saskatchewan. On that
site, according to tradition, the Buffalo Calf Woman first appeared to the
tribes, hundreds of years ago, bringing instruction in sacred ceremonies of how
to live in balance with all life, and leaving behind a sacred bundle containing
a sacred pipe of peace. Today, Chief Arvol Looking Horse is the 19th Generation
Keeper of the Tradition of the Sacred White Buffalo Calf Pipe.
The World Peace and Prayer Day ceremonies have been held in different locations
around Turtle Island—and beyond, to Ireland, South Africa, Australia, Japan, and
On June 21, Chief Arvol Looking Horse will conduct a public ceremony in Hawaii.
Nations, All Faiths, One Prayer is respecting each others’ traditions, culture
and religions,” said Arvol Looking Horse in his World Peace and Prayer Day
message for 2011. “There is one Creator and one Mother earth that we all
share. We have gone all over the world once a year to pray with other faith
communities and Indigenous Nations at their Sacred Sites. We have traveled to
the United Nations to talk about the environment and prophecies. As First
Nations we have committed ourselves to maintaining our sacred way of Life where
there is no ending and no beginning! Mitakuye Oyasin (all my relations).”
"I have always searched for my place and my people." -- Wendy Rose, HOPI/MIWOK
For every human being to feel connected, we must have the feeling of belonging.
That is one of the values and benefits of a culture: it creates the feeling of
belonging. If for some reason, while you were growing up, you did not develop
the feeling of belonging, a search will be triggered and a restlessness will be
present in your heart. You will have a hole inside you, something missing, until
you find your place and your people. Remember, we can get this feeling of
belonging when we realize we belong to the Great Spirit and that He really loves
us a lot.
My Creator, today, I belong to You. Let me feel Your presence. Thank You.
