The Earth is our Mother
care for her.........

Honor all your relations....

Open your heart and soul to the
Great Spirit....

All life is sacred; treat all
beings with respect....

Take from the Earth what is
needed nothing more...

Do what needs to be done for
the good of all.....

Give constant thanks to the
Great Spirit for each new day.....

Speak the truth;but only of
the good in others.....

Follow the rhythms of nature;
rise and retire with the sun...

and finally....

Enjoy life's journey, but
leave no tracks...

words to live by....
Rocky=.)

NATIVE: 1. belonging to a persn at or by way of birth, 2. born or produced in a particular place, 3. one who belongs to a country by birth.




What do you put in front of American. You shouldn't disrespect someones "HERITAGE"

Obviously, the pictures didn't get posted. Hmmmm, is BK that dumb?

The desecrated land is not just the empty holes from digging. The hair and blood, the skin off their bodies make up the earth around these burial sites. The ceremonies performed there when the bodies were laid to rest made the area all around sacred. So, it's not just the actual hole in the ground, but all the land that needs to be respected.

I read earlier in this thread where one judges the actions of what he sees of behavior by the Native people and the others. Each individual takes a path, four colors, Black Red Yellow and White. Four directions, four colors of mankind on this Sacred Earth Mother. Surely, you may hear the information and teachings about a way of life of a people, but to judge all Native people because every one of them doesn't live by the teachings is an error.

This is a way of life for all people. The message is the same in many cultures,

"Do unto others as you would have them do unto you"

"Judge not lest ye be judged"

And so on and so forth. It is a path, a way of living. We try to live this way, we fail and wake up and try again the next day and the next. Learning is endless. Life is endless. It is a perfect circle. No-one in front, no-one behind, all equal, all related.

what I was shown today....the wind added to the sorrow of the peoples crying there....The chill was for the lost souls of those that were desecrated....

It wasn't an Indian that dug them up to put in a pretty box to show them off to those that would never understand what they do....

and leave this for me to find....

they didn't even smooth the earth back over there graves...left rotten plactic and markers of string and rubber...they took what they wanted and dumped the soil back on top....

no wonder there is disgust...and no understanding from our counter worlds...

It would be even more impressive if Native North Americans had some kind of history of following these words, but a few hours reading history shows that most of them didn't. They weren't any better or worse then the rest of us human animals. Just better or worse in different cultural ways.


Whiteman wrote it...

but the Native American spoke it first....and they never had to lift a pen... the storys are still riding the wind... we don't have to go to a store to pay for it....it walks with us...

My history will be in the breathes I take with Mother Earth and the Great Spirits on the good red road... ....and the tracks I leave in the path of the one that holds my heart in his hands (his decision) to dream of a forever after...

my words....

and we still did not pick up a rock....we cried for our fallen allies and again turned the other cheek....

you forced us into starvation
again you offered salvation

you are the trickster........
the coyote....

you sent for our women an children and slaughtered them under the great waters....there were those that that hid and were to become the next great storytellers for they saw your intentions all along....

Don't speak of what you truly don't know.......

Eye we were never a Waring Nation...if you read your history and what the storyteller speak of they never wanted to fight..Many things were passed down to the next generation....it's always been a black and white issue...

Ying and Yang..

White man and Native American..
....

.someone came in and thought it was OK to just take what was never there's...it belonged to all that respected those that dwelled there...we were willing to share but that was not to be so..We were pushed from our home an forced to live a lie..we tryed to run and live in the peace that our spirit brothers, sisters, The Grandfathers and Grandmothers told us to honor..and again we were hunted..We never sot you out..We hid from you..Our existence was peaceful and of the land..and again you tried to put us in a place of watchfulness....Reservations...might as well been Welfare housing...with the Gestapo patrol...

You came and slaughtered for sport, left it to rot..laughed at how many and how fast you could kill..
The Buffalo..
Our lifes force...

"YOUR JOKE"

our food and clothing,nourishment f

I don't know, my friend. I think it depends on when in history you are speaking about. Recent history (when they were being forced from their land), I'd agree with you. Prior to that, they spent much more time at peace than at war.
