Chief Big Foot Band Memorial Ride – 25 years
South Dakota USA Wounded Knee Pine Ridge Reservation
For the past 25 years, Native American people have been riding, running and walking the route that Chief Bigfoot followed with his people, before they were massacred at the site of Wounded Knee in Pine Ridge, South Dakota. This year, to honor the 25th anniversary of the Chief Big Foot Band Memorial Ride and the 125th anniversary of the massacre, we inaugurate a 4 year cycle for global ceremony to end massacre and all that massacre means and to finally heal our hearts.
Wounded Knee becomes a focal point for healing ceremonies and activities to heal the multi-lineal, multi-generational wounds of humanity. Through ceremony and other healing modalities, we are engendering the healing process for indigenous and non-indigenous communities worldwide; by recognizing the core wounds of humanity, participating in ceremonies and activities of healing, and creating opportunities for everyone to heal…

I see so much blame and anger in the world right now.
People don’t feel they have power and are looking for someone or something to blame.
Stop it! Now isn’t the time to blame.
It’s not time to worry about political parties, the color of someone’s skin or their religion. The illness doesn’t care about those things.
The disease will grow within someone causing as much damage as possible while spreading to others…growing and becoming more powerful.
Like the disease our choices grow within us and spread to those around us. We can choose to grow hate and spread that in the world or we can nurture compassion, understanding and love then choose to spread that.
Those choices begin within the family and now we are spending more time together than in the recent past.
This is the time to truly pray and think about who you want to be and the story you want to leave behind. Let us place less importance on our differences or things we can’t control. Let us find common ground, learn from one another, share traditions and learn to love. Maybe when we stop using the things we can’t control as an excuse we can stop the bad feelings and grow as a people.

Prophecy by Floyd Westermann
“We were told that we would see America come and go. In a sense America is dying, from within, because they forgot the instructions of how to live on earth. It’s the Hopi belief, it’s our belief, that if you are not spiritually connected to the earth, and understand the spiritual reality of how to live on earth, it’s likely that you will not make it.
Everything is spiritual, everything has a spirit, everything was brought here by the creator, the one creator. Some people call him God, some people call him Buddha, some people call him Allah, some people call him other names. We call him Tunkaschila… Grandfather.
We are here on earth only a few winters, then we go to the spirit world. The spirit world is more real than most of us believe.
The spirit world is everything. Over 95% of our body is water.
In order to stay healthy you’ve got to drink good water. … Water is sacred, air is sacred.
Our DNA is made out of the same DNA as the tree, the tree breaths what we exhale, we need what the tree exhales. So we have a common destiny with the tree.
We are all from the earth, and when earth, the water, the atmosphere is corrupted, then it will create its own reaction. The mother is reacting.
In the Hopi prophecy they say the storms and floods will become greater.
To me it’s not a negative thing to know that there will be great changes.
It’s not negative, it’s evolution. When you look at it as evolution, it’s time, nothing stays the same.You should learn how to plant something. That is the first connection.
You should treat all things as spirit, realize that we are one family. It’s never something like the end. Its like life, there is no end to life.”

Message from a Hopi Elder to the Change of this:
Message from White Eagle, Hopi indigenous on 03/16/2020:
VISION QUEST 🔥👁️
“This moment humanity is going through can now be seen as a portal and as a hole.
The decision to fall into the hole or go through the portal is up to you.
If you repent of the problem and consume the news 24 hours a day, with little energy, nervous all the time, with pessimism, you will fall into the hole. But if you take this opportunity to look at yourself, rethink life and death, take care of yourself and others, you will cross the portal.
Take care of your homes, take care of your body. Connect with your spiritual House.
When you are taking care of yourselves, you are taking care of everything else. Do not lose the spiritual dimension of this crisis, have the eagle aspect, that from above, and see the whole; see more broadly.
There is a social demand in this crisis, but there is also a spiritual demand. The two go hand in hand. Without the social dimension, we fall into fanaticism. But without the spiritual dimension, we fall into pessimism and lack of meaning.
You were prepared to go through this crisis. Take your toolbox and use all the tools available to you.
Learn about resistance of the indigenous and African peoples: we have always been and continue to be exterminated. But we still haven’t stopped singing, dancing, lighting a fire and having fun. Don’t feel guilty about being happy during this difficult time.
You do not help at all being sad and without energy. You help if good things emanate from the Universe now. It is through joy that one resists. Also, when the storm passes, each of you will be very important in the reconstruction of this new world.
You need to be well and strong. And, for that, there is no other way than to maintain a beautiful, happy and bright vibration. This has nothing to do with alienation.
This is a resistance strategy. In shamanism, there is a rite of passage called the quest for vision. You spend a few days alone in the forest, without water, without food, without protection. When you cross this portal, you get a new vision of the world, because you have faced your fears, your difficulties …
This is what is asked of you:
Allow yourself to take advantage of this time to perform your vision seeking rituals. What world do you want to build for you? For now, this is what you can do: serenity in the storm. Calm down, pray every day. Establish a routine to meet the sacred every day.
Good things emanate; what you emanate now is the most important thing. And sing, dance, resist through art, joy, faith and love. „
Resist – Be reborn

The Deacons; the black armed Christians who protected MLK, civil rights supporters before Black Panther
Given that African-Americans were an easy target in the 1950s and 1960s, the Ku Klux Klan – the white supremacist group – had a free reign, terrorizing and even murdering civil rights supporters.
The incessant attacks were so frequent that many civil rights workers armed themselves for self-protection. Even the home of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. had so many guns during the 1950s that one visitor called it an “arsenal.”
