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.

Leonard Peltier Parole Update
Greetings from Lewisburg, PA. As you know, Leonard's parole hearing
was today. The attorney Eric Seitz is very hopeful about the outcome
of the hearing. The government brought nothing new to the table
and made it clear that their position is that LP should never be
released despite his being eligible for parole. That, of course,
is about nothing but revenge. Peter Matthiessen ("In the Spirit
of Crazy Horse") was a witness today. He's attended many of the
hearings, appeals, etc., over the years. He felt the examiner was
attentive and open to what was being said on LP's behalf. He's also
feeling positive. We're also told Leonard handled the Q&A (for
about 45 minutes) very well. Unfortunately, there's nothing further
to report. The examiner said he'd like some time before making
a recommendation. We expect that Leonard will be notified of the
recommendation within the next 24-48 hours. This is progress, folks.
Normally a denial is made and immediately, sometimes even before LP's
lawyers have even finished their presentation. Overall, the feeling
is that Leonard received a fair hearing. Keep up those prayers
for a positive outcome. Ultimately, of course, the full Parole
Commission will make the final decision. We'll keep you posted.
Time to set him free... Because it is the RIGHT thing to do.
