Default More Winona LaDuke

Reclaim the sacred to survive, LaDuke says

fBOSTON - Winona LaDuke has a crucial message: American Indians need to reclaim the sacred not only to recover from history's devastations, but to survive as spiritual, social and physical communities.

and Winona LaDuke has a new book, no doubt a great one and could be one to send your loved ones inside

Recovering the Sacred

The Power of Naming and Claiming

Winona LaDuke

Pages: 300
ISBN: 0-89608-712-3
Format: paper
Release Date: 2005-07-15

read more at Well aware of the significant gaps between mainstream and indigenous thinking, LaDuke probes the paradoxes that abound for the Native people of the Americas. How, for instance, can the indigenous imperative to honor the Great Salt Mother be carried out when mining threatens not only access to Nevada’s Great Salt Lake, but the health of the lake water itself? While Congress has belatedly moved to “protect” most Native American religious expression, the US government continues to blatantly forward its own interests above the places and natural resources integral to these same “protected” ceremonies.

A great Native teacher, whose name eludes me at the moment (Black Elk?) once said that man loses contact with the earth to the degree that his feet are separated from it.

Those words hold a wonderful lesson which can be learned "for keeps" if you simply take your shoes off and take a brief walk in your bare feet, preferably in a wild place. The experience may well change your life.

About one year ago some native americans filed a law suite with washington doc for being denied their spiritual ceremonies they lost the case. when you look closer in to the papers there are no official names just the term native american sex offenders. Now even if you had no part of these goings on you get treated as if you had. I know these things cause they are happening to my man. He is worried that he might end up a target of a hate crime just cause he is native american and is in on a sex crime (even though he didn't do it, he was set up). He tells me that natives aren't being allowed to use the sweat lodge, or anything else for that matter. It is bad enough that all sex offenders are beat by other in mates, but now it is more so for those who are native american sex offenders just cause of a law suite. That's all I know for now, I will keep you posted as I get more news.
