Marie Wilcox preserves her Native Wuckchummi language

The video below was shared by Indigenous Portal on Facebook:

Marie Wilcox, an octogenarian Native American woman from the San Joaquin Valley in California, was born on Thanksgiving in 1933; she grew up in a one-room house with the grandmother who delivered her and spoke her native Wukchumni, and I believe this video will assure you—Marie is better than you or I will ever be.

In this 10-minute mini-doc from the Global Oneness Project, via NYTLive, Marie talks about speaking primarily English to her children, who worked alongside her in the fields for a good part of the year. She started learning Wukchumni when her sister started speaking it again in an attempt to pass the endangered language on to each their kids.

Manitoba Elders Satement 12/25/15

Awareness of our connection to the Earth was prevalent in humans, not so now….HOWEVER we can relearn, we can remember and reclaim it…. for our children’s children and the Earth.

Thank you to Indian Country Today for sharing THE GREAT BINDING LAW statement put into writing by Manitoba Elders of Turtle Lodge…  Thank you to the Elders for making it possible for those who have no lineage or circle to learn from, to HEAR your words.

Listen with the ears of your heart….

“Nitam – Michemach Oche – Ahana…

In the beginning, when time started, a long, long time ago,Kizhay Manitou, the Great Spirit, gave us one universal Law –Ogichi Tibakonigaywin– a Law that connects us all. Through this Law we were all given our unique languages, songs, ceremonies, ways of life, teachings and stories. We were all given our ways of loving and taking care of Mother Earth.

Kizhay Manitouput spirit in Mother Earth and all of life. We come from the spirit world and flow through the Earth. We will all return to the spirit world and to the Earth when our journey on Earth has been completed.

The Rainbow Boy ~ Norman Patrick Brown

Norman Patrick Brown, acclaimed Navajo film maker shares the prophetic story of The Rainbow Boy. February 2011 the film The Rainbow Boy based on the story will be released.  This has the promise of an inspiring film,  a powerful story of past and present and the perhaps the planets future. It will be in Navajo with subtitles. It would be awesome if a film in America in a first peoples language went mainstream. Visit the garden forum to plan ways to help with this.

Call of the Wolf, Anishnabe Gathering ~ SunBow TalkswithWolves

From SunBow TalkswithWolves

Greetings beloved relations,

Anishnabes from different communities of La Verendrye reserve are coming together in an unprecedent way. They are putting aside old family feuds and inside stories, and they are now building a large 60 x 80 feet lodge at Wolf Lake airport, as a medicine council lodge to host the Call of the Wolf, Return to the Sacred Hoop. Last April, the Anishnabes (Algonquins) have signed a Constitution and reformed their Traditional Council of Elders. Just days ago, they sent official letters to political instances to declare their exclusive jurisdiction on their ancestral homeland, centered around La Verendrye reserve and declaring illegal every transformastion activities on the territory without their explicit consent, including clear cutting, hydro dams, power lines, mining, water diversion or any construction project. Help the Anishnabe sovereign nation in its stand to protect Mother Earth and native/human rights.

We need right now: Workers, supplies for workers, nails, tools, gaz for vehicles and chainsaws, pick up trucks, tarps and canvas… etc…

Join us at the Call of the Wolf, let’s Return to the Sacred Hoop. Migwetch.

Your help and support on any level is appreciated. Please forward and share in your networks.

End of the World Prophecy ~ Floyd Looks for Buffalo Hand

Floyd Looks For Buffalo Hand offers a realistic look at current situation in the Americas and the World.  This Lahkota Medicine Man talks about his visions of the end of the world. Man has lived on this earth for thousands of years, but in the last 100 years, man has been a parasite that takes and takes without giving back and finally the host, Mother Earth, fights back killing many. But those that survive become holistic and learn to live in balance and harmony with each other and Mother Earth and give back what they take.

A Great Urgency ~ Chief Arvol Looking Horse

A letter from Chief Arvol Looking Horse

A Great Urgency

To All World Religious and Spiritual Leaders:

My Relatives,

Time has come to speak to the hearts of our Nations and their Leaders. I ask you this from the bottom of my heart, to come together from the Spirit of your Nations in prayer.

We, from the heart of Turtle Island, have a great message for the World; we are guided to speak from all the White Animals showing their sacred color, which have been signs for us to pray for the sacred life of all things.

As I am sending this message to you, many Animal Nations are being threatened, those that swim, those that crawl, those that fly, and the plant Nations, eventually all will be affect from the oil disaster in the Gulf.

The dangers we are faced with at this time are not of spirit. The catastrophe that has happened with the oil spill which looks like the bleeding of Grandmother Earth, is made by human mistakes, mistakes that we cannot afford to continue to make.

I ask, as Spiritual Leaders, that we join together, united in prayer with the whole of our Global Communities. My concern is these serious issues will continue to worsen, as a domino effect that our Ancestors have warned us of in their Prophecies.

I know in my heart there are millions of people that feel our united prayers for the sake of our Grandmother Earth are long overdue. I believe we as Spiritual people must gather ourselves and focus our thoughts and prayers to allow the healing of the many wounds that have been inflicted on the Earth. As we honor the Cycle of Life, let us call for Prayer circles globally to assist in healing Grandmother Earth (our Unc’I Maka). (Read more…)
