When I read your comments on Chief Lane's page, "It is truly heartbreaking that we must tolerate these injustices, but some of the humans are starting to come around, they are listening, they are heeding... May you walk in beauty," I just wanted you to know how profoundly moving it was of you to say that.  Many blessings to you and yours -  Steve

White Bear, thanks for your healing and inspiring comments on the film. I was so saddened when I learned of our people's high drug and alcohol abuse rate. I hope this film can be part of the process back out of the bondage of abuse. I wish you peace, and justice!

We come from many nations, many races, many colors. My people were the Wappinger absorbed by the Iroquois. We are all the Human.

thanks so much White Bear I know what you are talking about and I thought I was getting there but I guess I let the negativity in. I know when I started to be able to forgive those who hurt me and send them love. I will do my best to keep it that way, You are helping me so much thank you for coming into my life, I have been praying for some like you to come into my life, just being able to talk to you this way makes me so happy. I love your wall and your songs. About my mom I will let her go completly starting today. And my younger sister dropped by this morning and we had a great visit I took her out for lunch,

I sat in a Cedar Bath last night and prayed for my extended family.
I love my life right now I have everything that I need in life I don't want anything else, I have my bundle, my drum, my medicines, a good warm home, a great husband, 3 beautiful daughter and son in laws and two grandsons and a new baby to be born in May.
What more can a woman ask for? The Sun is shinning out side today and I am listening to your beaufitul songs as I am typing this message to you what more can I ask for at this moment.
Strong Standing Bear Woman...sending you love and hugs....

thank you so much White Bear, that is a great teaching for me, but certain situations have happen between my extented family and we are not close or sometimes not even talking. My brother who was 4 when I was born never accepted me and as we grew up he always treated me like the black sheep and even today as old as we are it is still the same, And when I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer 15 years ago my younger sister came to be with us when I had my surgery and after that I never seen her again and when our mother was admitted tothe hospital after her diagnoses of Alzhimers I I bought in the sweetgrass and cedar my drum and they told me that I should not be bringing in this here because mom does not believe in it as she is a strick Catholic but I saw my mom come to cermony and I saw her smoking the Sacred Pipe. The sad part of it all they did not tell me but they told my husband and this was during the last part of her life. I use to go to the hospital alone at night around 10 p.m. and sumdge her with sweetgrass and sing songs to her with my drum. So I do not know how to deal with this I pray about it when I do my Pipe. So I suppose I am free in a way but I miss my extended family.
I have my husband and three daughters and son in laws and two very handsome grandsons. My husband always says this is our family.

I know that she was teaching me, but there was no traditional teaching there at the time, it was very strick Catholic, I did not know anything about tobbaco she was a very religious woman she sang church songs. I only started to learn about the teachings in the early 80's and even today the people from my community are strickly church people some still say the traditionl way is evil..

Hi White Bear from Standing Strong Bear, Black Bear Warrior.
Thank you for your welcome and I look forward to hear about your teachings I am an Ojibway traditional woman, I love who I am as a 'First Nation Woman and I cannot say it was like this all my life, our culture was lost because of the Residental School and because we were Christianized, I was alway a spiritual even as a young girl growing up as a stong Catholic but later in life when I started learing about the traditional teachings and started fasting in the Sundance and other ceremonies I loved it so much and the traditional songs came to me as if I always knew my language which was not spoken in my home. My parents started to speak English and when I recall now it was like the language was spoken but not openly, I followed my grandmother around but she never once said to me granddaughter sit down and I will teach you the language or teach me the tradional way of life, like tanning a hide and to thiis day I can even smell the mosse hide that was being prepared and tanned, I watch her cut and clean the moose but I never once got a chance to try it. i ask myslf today was I suppose to say grandmother teach me how to do that? I use to sit and watch her make fishing nets and do so many other things, the only teaching that I was able to remember her teaching me was how to call the wind to clean the blueberries, she showed me how to do this.
I will share more there is so much to say and no one to listen, I am happy that I found this site. Have a great day..
