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

WISDOM SAYINGS

“When it comes time to die, be not like those whose hearts are filled with the fear of death, so when their time comes they weep and pray for a little more time to live their lives over again in a different way. Sing your death song, and die like a hero going home.” (Aupumut) “All of this Creation is Sacred… And so do not forget. Every Dawn as it comes is a holy event and every day is holy, for the light comes from Wakan-Tanka… you must remember that the Two-leggeds and All other peoples who stand upon this Earth are Sacred and should be treated as such…” (White Buffalo Woman) “How smooth must be the language of the whites when they can make right look like wrong, and wrong like right.” (BlackHawk) “Our wise men are called Fathers, and they truly sustain that character. Do you call yourselves […] Read More

WHAT IS A NATIVE?

It is not blood that makes a Native American… It is the soul… Too many… with the 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. (Author Unknown)

Wakantanka: The Breath Giver

by Wambdi Wicasa Many, many seasons ago, Wakantanka, the Breath Giver, the Holy one, walked in the trees of the Paha Sapa, the Black Hills. The trees were cool and the music of the streams made him happy. Over the high hard rock the Eagle soared on great wings. Deer looked at Wakantanka, and their delicate feet were full of beauty and grace. Moose and Elk dipped their great heads into the water to pull the sweet lake grasses. The great Black Bears, afraid of nothing, padded toward the honey trees. Antelope stood deep in the meadow grasses. But with all this beauty around Him, Wakantanka was uneasy. He was happy and loved the Hills He had made, but there was no one He could talk to. There was no one He could love. No one who could return His love. To all his creatures He had given something […] Read More

SACRED SITES AND MILITARY LANDS/ACTIVITIES

Vine Deloria, Jr.7 Reporting the presence of sacred Native American sites on, near, or possibly influenced by U.S. military lands is circumscribed by several important considerations. These considerations will be discussed as they relate to the identification of sacred sites. Sites will then be identified and the appropriate cultural and historical background and tribal affiliation with the site will be provided. In order to avoid the specter of appearing to be the definitive authority on these locations, the phrase “appears to be” will be used in identifying and discussing the locations. In that way, should conflict arise in the future over the nature of the location, its importance, or the ceremonies which might need to be conducted there, sufficient flexibility is provided for the introduction of clarifying information. To avoid any suggestion or inference that locations or background materials regarding any particular sacred site is being revealed without authorization […] Read More

SACRED SITES AND MILITARY LANDS/ACTIVITIES 2

Missouri The Osage (Matthews 1961) were the dominant Indian nation in Missouri (Figure 4.11) prior to European contact and through astute diplomacy and military prowess were able to maintain themselves as an important influence until statehood. In the southern part of the state some Quapaw and Tunica villages were located and along the western and central areas of the north Otoe and Missouri settlements were numerous. At the extreme northeastern part of the state Sac and Fox peoples claimed lands. During removal of the Five Civilized Tribes and earlier with removals of Indian nations from the Ohio and Indiana areas some sites in this state were used as temporary winter or refurbishing places. The Wyandotte, for example, lived in the Kansas City area for only a short period of time but established a tribal cemetery that is still in existence. The vast majority of potential sacred sites in this […] Read More

Building a Sweat Lodge

Building a sweat lodge is not particularly difficult, but careful consideration should be given to various details. Choosing a Location and Sitting the Lodge A quiet and secluded area is the obvious setting for a sweat lodge. Privacy is essential, yet the area must also be accessible. Once you have found the site, you must then choose where you wish to place the lodge itself. There is no hard, fast rule that the doorway of a sweat lodge must face a particular location. The lodge doorways at the base of Spirit Mountain in the Black Hills face west. Most Sioux and Ojibwa sweat lodges face east or west, but you must consider the terrain, location, and setting of the entire lodge area when selecting your lodge opening. In the interest of fire safety, you may have to select your fireplace area first. This will determine the direction of the […] 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

1996: REPORT ON THE STAR KNOWLEDGE CONFERENCE

NATIVE ELDERS REVEAL CENTURIES OF EXTRATERRESTRIAL CONTACT LORE by Richard Boylan, Ph.D. (c) 1996 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 in response to a vision. The vision showed that Native American spiritual knowledge about the Star Nations was to be shared. 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 world, as well as a […] Read More
