We are all One- Spread this video



1. Speaker: Indigenous Native American Prophecy, Oren Lyons. Oren R.



Blueskywoman's thoughts:



We live in a world that has forgetten this teaching, some of us want to find our way back to be one. Sometimes when I walk my son to school in the morning--I find myself captured in a moment when I look at the bluesky, the trees, the birds and become one with them. It really is heartfelt and I give my life and humage to our Creator for letting us live… Continue

Gang colors are the new traditional regalia as they fight each other instead of the true enemy.



Manhood ceremonies are now called hazings or gang bangs.



Modern Indian boys cut their hair short and wear bandannas around their heads that are now symbols of… Continue

Drug gang leaders like to show off rarities like sea turtle skin boots and build ostentatious private zoos at their mansions.



They also reap additional profits by sharing routes with animal traffickers who cram humming birds into cigarette packs and baby… Continue

Like a leaf,

Sharing American Indian/Indigenous News, Issues and Special Features

It is non-profit and I will not accept donations or apply for grants for its publication costs. It's something I wanted to do in honor of my Ancestors and to give something back. I do all the work myself, so sometimes, the work involved can be somewhat overwhelming, but it's well worth it. I have… Continue
