About Me: "Wakiya" (Thunder)
I am a Tribal, Musician, Writer, Artist. I try to walk the path and have studied the tradition of the "Wisdom keepers" like Lame Deer, Fools Crow, Black Elk, and Rolling Thunder from the tribes of this region, and Lao Tzu, Buddha, Bodhidharma, Yeshua, and other enlightened ones from the many various tribes of the earth. I understand the worlds religions and belief systems, and realize the division this can cause by the lack of understanding the "real message" from the Masters. My intention, and life's prayer is to try to live in harmony with Grandmother Earth, Grandfather sky, (Nature) and "the spirit that moves in all things," and help in any way I can to build a bridge between all men and tribes so they can walk their path in a manner that will benefit themselves, the Earth and others. I open up, and ask Great Spirit, The creator, The Tao, The Universe, to work and direct healing and positive energy through me by different means, like the Flute, drums, Words, Prayer, and Touch. I try to be loving and accept others from the heart, and practice forgiveness. I honor all people, the winged one's, and four legged ones considering us all equal, not one being above another. I honor the bountiful Harvest from Mother earth in the form of plant life, water, air and herbs which sustain our oneness with her. I pray all tribes should re-unite as one, so we may protect the planet and live in harmony. Within you, without you.

"Apache Wolf" Victorio

Birth: 1825
Truth or Consequences
Sierra County
New Mexico, USA
Death: Oct. 14, 1880, Mexico

Native American Tribal Chief. He was an Eastern Chiricahua Apache War Chief, also known as a Warm Springs or a Mimbreno Apache. He was nicknamed the Apache Wolf. He was considered to be brave in battle and a skillful strategist in guerrilla warfare. He was one of the most fiercest of the Apache War Chiefs. He led raiding parties along with Apache War Chiefs: Geronimo, Nana (his uncle), Chato, Mangas Coloradas, and others, killing settlers in the West Texas, Southeastern and Southwestern New Mexico, and Northern Mexican territories. He was pursued by the United States Army Buffalo Soldiers of the 9th and 10th Calvary, Texas Rangers, and Colonel Jaoquin Terraza and his Mexican forces. Following the death of Apache Chief Mangas Coloradas, Victorio slowly emerged as tribal leader of the Eastern Chiricahua and Mescalero Apache bands or tribes. He chose Apache War Chief Loco as his second in command. He signed many treaties with the United States Government, but the United States Government failed to honor them. The United States Government wanted to force him to settle in Arizona, but he wanted to remain in his homeland at Ojo Caliente (Warm Springs) in Southwestern New Mexico. On October 14, 1880 in the Tres Castillas Mountains of Mexico, Colonel Terraza and his Mexican troops surrounded and massacred Chief Victorio's camp, killing 60 warriors, 18 women and children, and taking over 60 women and children as prisoners. Apache Chief Victorio lay dead. (bio by: Bedford W. Sipes)
