I just wanted to share some quotes from a book I reading titled "The Native Americans, An Illustrated History", written by many and published by TurnerPublishingInc of Atlanta.
On the inside flap of the cover is the following text:
"Depossessed of their ancestral homelands by successive invasions of Europeans, the first real Americans have long been cloaked in a veil of myth and legend that has hidden from us the true richness and diversity of Indian civilizations… Continue
I've spent the day reading, meditating and responding on here and have been excited by the initial responses. And since you all seem ready to jump to a higher vibrational level - let's go!
I think I left off at the 7th Insight and my recurring dream of being with the Dkhw’Duw’Absh, the Duwamish tribe of the Coastal Salish, or in their own terms: The People of the Inside. The Peruvian manuscript was reportedly written by the Maya in roughly 600 B.C. and shockingly was in… Continue
Be forewarned, I am about to wander all over the spiritual map. Some of my wanderings may sound quite strange and some will hit home for you, dear friends. All I ask is that you think about what I've said without judging it. Please forgive any misspellings - I'm not that good a typist.
I believe it is part of my role in this lifetime to follow the Blue Path. And allow me to explain what I precieve as the Blue Path. To me, it is a combination of all paths. It is seeing the good… Continue
I don't know if you've ever heard of the Mineral Hot Springs in Thermopolis, WY; but they are the largest in the world (in volume of water coming out every second). A few hundred yards away, sloping downhill from the spring is the Big Horn River, one of only 3 in North America that runs south-to-north. Between the Big Spring and the river there is a plateau which over many centuries has become large, natural cooling ponds. The water comes out of the ground at about 160 degrees, just below… Continue
I've just finished reading a book by Mary Summer Rain that reminded me of another book I've read called the Four Agreements, written by Don Miguel Ruiz. In it, Don Miguel describes what he terms the Four Agreements which are as follows:
Be impeccable with your word - in other words, use integrity when you speak, don't gossip or lie. Don't self-aggrandize but use your words to promote truth and love.
Don't take anything personally - What others say and/or do… Continue
My apologies to the Elders if I misquote or misspell anything. And speaking of such, it should be known that whom most of the country knows as Chief Seattle was actually named Chief Si'ahl. This wise elder of the Duwamish, the Dkhw’Duw’Absh as they call themselves in their own language, is often misquoted (like in his famous speech regarding the government's desire for the land) or likewise misnamed. I am proud to carry their bloodline, even if it be only a tiny fraction. To learn more visit… Continue

My respects to the author, this is a wonderful telling:
The Sacred Pipe of the T'salagi (The People)
Most all Nations have stories about the 'Sacred Pipe'. What many people refer to as The Peace Pipe. Which is an incorrect Hollywood thought shown in the old west movies and cartoons. The Sacred pipe is to the Native Americans as the cross is to christian…Continue
