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.

An Open letter to All My Relations, RE: Leonard Peltier
An Open letter to All My Relations,
You may or may not like what I have to say,,well that's ok because I will say it anyway!! I was told by great spirit to speak from the one eye of the heart, (Chante Ista). I understand the reasoning behind the half hearted ( No Offense) measures that are being taken in Leonard's behalf. It's called Diplomacy, be nice to the powers to be, don't step on any toes. Kiss Butt!! Go through channels!! They don't listen to reason they never have!! If this seems shocking it's because I mean to be.
Instead of letting all this effort to garner support mean nothing. I.E. peoples attention span is short. Use the literally 100's of thousands of people, to organize a march on Washington NOW!!! Before some of the people's support and attention get taken elsewhere. Organize a March, make your goal Two Million and you will probably get 100,000!! maybe more!!! Each one should be carrying a traditional hoop drum with a beater. They should paint a bolt of lightening across their face..like crazy horse did!!..they should march and chant,, beating the drum in unison. They should pray for the Thunderbeings, the "Wakinyan" to come and intercede,, the thunder from the drums will bring them. A ceremony should be done in front of the white house, An eagle should be there to represent what it really means, not the governments misguided use of it on our currency.
No fancy speeches by lawyers in suits and ties,,,if anybody talks, it should be the elders, saying a prayer or chanting to great spirit...Maybe a Navajo hoop dancer would be nice and some traditional music... This would all be done in a non-violent,, Gandhi type way...but with warrior intent!! Think of it.. 100,000 or more.... people chanting and praying ..Lots of feathers should be worn in the hair. I implore you to do this, Great spirit wants this. I could be wrong, but I feel Leonard wants this in his heart,,he is a warrior and he proved it by laying his life on the line against the goon squads, government tyranny, and the FBI. IN HIS HEART HE IS HOPING SOMEONE LIKE ME WILL HAVE THE COURAGE TO SAY WHAT NEEDS TO BE DONE!
Start today before its too late,,, Leonard's spirit will be free one way or another, but lets bring him home to family and all of us...so when he does make the final journey it will be surrounded by friends, holy men, and nature. I am going to circulate this letter. Leonard is being humble, and maybe he is scared ,,wouldn't you be? So maybe someone else needs to instigate this....this is how we got things done in the sixties or seventies. Marched, got our heads beaten in, got bloodied and arrested. But we did accomplish our goal.. This is about Leonard ,,but it's more,,, its bigger. How hard would it be to organize this with the resources and friendly talk show hosts and support we have..How hard would it be to count coup on our enemies, like crazy horse did,, lets quit half stepping,,,,,,we talked the talk,,Now lets walk the walk.... It's time for the committees and friends to change into warriors,, for the battle of freedom for us all! Its to bad Ben Carnes... has to do this alone while we sit in solidarity in the comfort of our own homes saying ..Go Ben Go!!! Sad! Ben has the guts and Spirit to do what needs to be done and we should be standing behind him in the flesh,,in the spirit of the sun dance!!..Just maybe that's what Fools Crow would say!! In the "Real" Spirit of Crazy Horse" NOW!!!!! You can print this letter or circulate it,,,, if you so dare...or desire!! I am!!
One of Leonard's Real Friends!!
Foot Note: Some people are asking what the reason is for the March! I Guess you haven't been following the Leonard Peltier case. Reason? FREEDOM for Leonard! Freedom for Indigenous people! Freedom for us all..there Hows That!!!
