Profile Information

About Me:
36 year old Puerto Rican, born in 'The Bronx' and raised in Peekskill, NY.
Always interested in the root ways-and interested in gathering with others seeking to reinvigorate 'these ways'. Ordained in the Zen Buddhist tradition after years of martial arts study and meditation, but still felt something was missing. While living in Colorado and Oregon I met some brothers and sisters from AIM and was honored to be invited into their ceremonies. Ceremonies that reminded me of how I was raised and what I'd been missing. Visited Miguel Soboakokoromo and began to learn the ways of the Beike. I am a musician, Writer, Salsero, who loves the sound of crickets... and a Chaplain at Oregon State Penitentiary where I serve and continue to learn that 'these ways' can set you free.
Occupation:
Chaplain-Oregon State Penitentiary
Education:
BA-Philosophy, State University of New York.
M.Div.- Religious studies and Pastoral counseling.
M.Div. Thesis "Karma and the Myth of White Supremacy"

I haven't been to a Lakota Club Pow-wow in many years. My niece is in Coffee Creek Correctional facitity and they had a Pow-wow every year too. I have a picture but I couldn't find it I wanted to share that with you. I love all the scenic picture and beautiful things on your photo's on your page. Boy our world is beautiful and wished they would stop destroying it. Pretty soon it will all be ugly and destructed beyond belief. Thanks and I will share more with you soon. Did you ever go to the Delta Park Pow-wow in Portland Oregon in JUNE. I think it's the 2nd of 3rd weekend in June every year. It is done by the Bow-Arrow club these day's. TAKE CARE & IF YOU WANT THE INFO LET ME KNOW OKAY MY FRIEND, From Debra Rincon Lopez in Portland Oregon USA.

Thanks for replying to my story. I appreciate all the comments I receive. I don't personally know the Tribal members you have talked about. But, we do have alot of our Tribal members living in Salem,Eugene, and Corvallis and other places all the up from Portland and Vancouver Washington. We have meeting up here for the Tribe every couple of months, so I will see who's around. But, I love that the picture of the clover is real. That's too cool!!! I hope to hear from you again.

I was viewing your photos and I was wondering if the clover that was purple,was it real or not? Also, at what location did you get the photo of the carving on the rock, the face or whatever it was? Have you taken these photos yourself or are they off the computer? If you would like to answer these questions, please let me know. from Debra Rincon Lopez.

oh no, wait, this is the same page! The one I was supposed to have deleted? Is that right? This is confusing now.

...oh yeah, and I wanted to know:

so did you in fact steal those photographs?

(Just kidding!)

You made it back!

Sorry for the confusion...I was supposed to delete your profile, then got side tracked, etc., etc., but luckily Carrie was here to take care of it.

My apologies again for not helping sooner. Thankfully, I have three great co-admins now, and the place is better than ever.

Really incredible pictures, Richard... I recognize some of them, I think. I'm new to this network and was just looking around. I live just down the road from you in Corvallis.
