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 everyday 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 Christians? Does […] 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.

Straight Girl Talk

Conversations with Brooke Medicine Eagle The Role of Women Today When we are born in female bodies — when we choose a female body for our earth body — we literally choose to come into the Earth plane with the charge of the nurturing and renewing all of life. We choose to nurture and renew all life, not just through the birthing of children, but through teaching everyone that ability to nurture and renew life, so that we don’t wind up being the ones taking care of everything. It is that sense of standing as warrior women for life, for aliveness, standing for really taking the energy away from those things that are destructive to life and aliveness and the circle of all our relations. That, to me, feels like the really important charge for women in this time. When the woman I called Rainbow Woman, who has now […] Read More

NATIVE AMERICAN QUOTES

“The American Indian is of the soil, whether it be the region of the forests, plains, pueblos, or mesas. He fits into the landscape, for the land that fashioned the continent also fashioned the man for his surroundings. He once grew as naturally as the wild sunflowers; he belongs just as the buffalo belongs… —Luther Standing Bear (1868?-1939) Oglala Sioux chief “If you talk to the animals they will talk with you and you will know each other. If you do not talk to them you will not know them and what you do not know, you will fear. What one fears, one destroys.” —Chief Dan George I hope the Great Heavenly Father, who will look down upon us, will give all the tribes His blessing, that we may go forth in peace, and live in peace all our days, and that He will look down upon our children […] 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

1996: Report on the Worlds In Transition:

The Star Visions Conference by Richard Boylan, Ph.D., CCHT (c) 1996 A turbulent storm front was brewing over the Front Range of the Rockies towering behind Fort Collins, Colorado. It portended the powerful events which would soon be taking place at a high-altitude gathering starting that Thursday afternoon. A numinous, energized transition layer stretched between towering the dark cumulus and the peaks below, and glowered with latent diffuse high voltage. As the conference-goers approached the site of the Star Visions Conference at the 8000-foot snow line, a ferocious gale was howling. The wind-chill factor reached zero. Braving this test by Spirit of their dedication, speakers and attendees assembled in the cavernous auditorium of the Estes Park Center to witness opening prayer and ceremony by Conference convener, Dakota spiritual leader Standing Elk. The middle-aged Sioux Star Altar Keeper with long, jet-black hair and attired in a sports jacket and fresh […] Read More

Origin of the Lakota Peace Pipe

Lakota Native American Lore Long, long ago, two young and handsome Lakota were chosen by their band to find out where the buffalo were. While the men were riding in the buffalo country, they saw someone in the distance walking toward them. As always they were on the watch for any enemy. So they hid in some bushes and waited. At last the figure came up the slope. To their surprise, the figure walking toward them was a woman. When she came closer, she stopped and looked at them. They knew that she could see them, even in their hiding place. On her left arm she carried what looked like a stick in a bundle of sagebrush. Her face was beautiful. One of the men said, “She is more beautiful than anyone I have ever seen. I want her for my wife.” But the other man replied, “How dare […] Read More

Father Of Indian Corn

Chippewa Indian Lore: In the long, long ago, a poor Ojibwa Indian lived with his wife and children in a remote part of the present state of Wisconsin. Because he was such a poor hunter, he was not very expert in providing food and supplies for his family. His children were too young to give him much help. But he was a good man with a kind and contented disposition. He always was thankful to Chief of the Sky Spirits for everything he received to share with his family. His good disposition was inherited by his eldest son, who had just reached the age when he wanted to pursue his Guardian Spirit Quest. Each young Indian boy looked forward to the time of finding the secret Spirit that would be his guide through his life. Each boy sought to learn his spirit name and what special power would be […] Read More
