Michigan Police Seize Kids from Family For “Camping”

Last month, a Michigan family decided it would be fun to go camping for the summer, on a 10 acre plot of land they had recently purchased. Christopher and Antonia Hernandez wanted their six children to experience the outdoors, and get a taste for off grid living. But after living in several large tents for 9 days, their rural experiment came to an abrupt end. On May 19, the parents left the property to do laundry at a laundromat, as well as to buy food and some fencing for the animals. The younger children were left in the care of their 15-year-old son, who is nearly 16. “When we arrived back, the Otsego County Sheriff’s Department was at the property claiming to have received a report of squatters on the land,” Antonia said. “We provided documentation of our right to be on the land, which was verified the next […] Read More

1998: Return of the Star Nations During Our Time of Purification

Report on the Star Knowledge Conference – Sedona by Richard Boylan, Ph.D. ©1998 [May not be republished without express permission.] The region around Sedona, Arizona is famous worldwide for its scenic setting: majestic tall red sandstone buttes, set among contrasting green forests of aromatic juniper trees. The area also contains 13 energy vortices, perhaps the most intense such concentration in the world. Here Standing Elk, Yankton Sioux Chief and Star Altar Keeper, was directed by Spirit to convene the seventh Star Knowledge Conference. As before, this was a gathering of indigenous spiritual teachers who have been directed by Spirit to share their special knowledge about the Star People Visitors. Also speaking along with these Elders were some non-Native UFO/ET researchers, psychics and natural healers, who are knowledgeable about the role of the Star People in our lives. Over the three days a crowd of almost five hundred attended to […] Read More

The White Buffalo Called Miracle

***Miracle Died 2003*** Contents: Update On Miracle It’s A Miracle! Fulfilling The Prophesy Story of the White Buffalo Calf Woman UPDATE ON MIRACLE It was said by some that in “the time of the White Buffalo” sunbows, or whirling rainbows, would begin to appear more frequently as a sign to the people. As most readers of this journal will know, we are in the time of the White Buffalo. The long-awaited White Buffalo Calf was born August 20, 1994 on a Wisconsin farm owned by Dave and Valerie Hieder. Jay Pierce is Valerie Hieder’s dad, and he is the person who greets most of the over 65,000 people who have come out to the farm to visit Miracle since her birth just over a year ago. “Miracle is in great shape,” he reports. “She started out white alright, but then turned jet black for all of the Winter.

WHAT IS A NATIVE?

It is not blood that makes an Native American… It is the soul…. Too many… with fire of Native blood… walk ignored. Do not say I am Apache or Kickapoo.. Do not say I am Sioux or Cherokee. Say…. I am of the Mother Tribe… This is the pain of our children… To return from the stars without a home or community… A tribe lost returns… scattered in the wind. Those who hear must unite and reap the seed of this return. ONE tribe…ONE Earth…ONE Heart…ONE People. Those with ears must build a fire and give thanks this night. Be united with ONE soul. Oh, my Children come home… Teachers step forward without fear… You are real.

TRADITIONAL SHAMANISM AN INTRODUCTION

The knowledge and truth of traditional shamanism exists everywhere. It exists for everyone to see, if you understand the message and see past your own illusions. It is the essential understanding of life, the oldest knowledge we have: that of who we are, why we are here, and what is our life’s purpose. It soars beyond the primitive healer whether in the rainforest, in the desert chewing roots, or waving rattles over a patient, to encompass the breadth of life, of all things. It exists in our history, mythology, fairy stories, culture, religion, and everyday life, for it is life itself. All the efforts of those in power, over thousands of years, to suppress it have not hidden it or destroyed it. For it is Truth, and it will indeed set you free. To know your true nature, self, and purpose is having power, being powerful, and is creating […] Read More

The Peace Pipe Ceremony

Those who desire to benefit their spiritual path by learning Native American knowledge and wisdom, some of which will come through the ceremonies, are recommended to get a peace pipe. The peace pipe is not restricted to only Indians. It has been jealously guarded by Native Americans, however, because many are fearful that the pipe may be used disrespectfully by non-Indian people. Many believe that a powerful good for all things can emanate from the respectful and proper use of the pipe, but it must be regarded as a spiritual instrument by the pipe holder, whatever their lineage or color happens to be. The pipe can become a strong catalyst to import a powerful feeling for our Mother Earth and all living things. Black Elk predicted that we would go forth in numbers as flames to bring forth beneficial change to this generation. The pipe, and the respectful pipe […] Read More

White Buffalo Calf Woman

(Ptecincala Ska Wakan) The Gift of the Sacred Pipe Before the appearance of the Buffalo Calf Woman, the Indian honored the Great Spirit. But for the Sioux, the coming of Buffalo Calf Woman brought a most important instrument, the pipe, which is now used in all ceremonies. The sacred pipe came into being many, many years ago. Two men of the Sioux tribe were hunting when they saw something approaching in the distance. As the figure grew close, they observed a maiden, attired in white buckskin, carrying a bundle wrapped in buffalo hide. As she walked slowly toward them she sang out and repeated; Behold me. Behold me, For in a sacred manner I am walking. One of the men had evil thoughts about this maiden and moved towards her. the other Sioux tried forcibly to restrain him, but the evil warrior pushed the good warrior away. A cloud […] Read More

The Lemurian Influence

Note: This session was for a private group from Japan during their 1993 visit to Sedona. The original tape, (#130) includes a Japanese translation. Germane: All right, this is Germane with greetings to you. We’d like to begin by giving you a little bit of the history of Sedona and you could certainly consider it an ancient history. During the time period that you know of as Lemuria, the area of Sedona was a series of islands. Now, we would consider this to be ancient Lemuria. During this period of time, there were many different types of beings who inhabited your world. There were some physical beings like yourselves, but there were also many beings in different dimensional realities, as well. It was a very populated area on many different dimensional levels. Within the cliffs that you see here now, in those ancient days, there were dwellings, interdimensionally, where […] Read More

2007: Skinwalkers – What Are They?

By Colm Kelleher and George Knapp 8-9-7 With skinwalkers becoming the subjects of popular books and recently, movies, it is fair to ask about their origins. In August 1996, a team of scientists arrived on a remote ranch in NE Utah to investigate a bizarre litany of phenomena; including unidentified flying objects, animal mutilations, paranormal and poltergeist occurrences that appeared to erupt almost on a nightly basis. The list went on and on. The first piece of information the team learned from local people was that the ranch lay “on the path of the skinwalker”. Was the skinwalker responsible for the weird happenings on this ranch? What followed was a multi-year odyssey into the dark unknown as the science team tried to pursue, measure and photograph the elusive “skinwalker”. The complete account of the unprecedented research project is published in the book “Hunt for the Skinwalker“. In the religion […] Read More

Speaking out on the theft and abuse of spirituality

by: Shadi Rahimihttp://www.indiancountry.com/content.cfm?id=1096415443SAN FRANCISCO It was a strange sight, at least in East Los Angeles. While walking her dogs recently at Arroyo Seco Park, Marisol Crisostomo-Romo, 26, said she spotted a van with a tipi on it. Into it piled a group of white children clutching bows and arrows. They were members of the five-week-long Camp Shi’ini, ”a Native American-themed summer camp” that is named after ”a Native American word meaning ‘Summer People,”’ according to its Web site. The 60-year-old camp divides children into nine ”tribes” and offers activities ranging from horseback riding (in the tradition of the Navajo, Comanche and Eskimo, its Web site stated) and archery (Mohawk, Seminole and Blackfoot) to fishing (Zuni, Iroquois and Apache). Crisostomo-Romo, who is Pascua Yaqui, immediately wrote the camp a letter and e-mailed 422 people to do the same, beseeching all those ”offended and disgusted by cultural exploitation and mainstream society’s […] Read More
