Native American Shamans in Florida

Native Shamans is the 2nd most asked question to this day just below Circle and just above Pow-wow.

I will be directing you to a new page of sites of interest for added explanations

so as to not lose you and your attention span?

 This question was asked twice on Wednesday July 1st

This question about shamans in native tribes keeps coming up often since I started tracking your questions in the middle 1980’s

I have added a new page at the top of our Sachem Speaks blog in order to help explain better the questions most asked out on the internet.


Please refer to this page as often as possible for questions?

I did this for your convenience while reading our many sites.

Native American Shamans in Florida

There were a number of (Indian) Native American tribes living in Florida before the Spanish came.

Timucuans/Tequesta come to mind if one wishes to talk about native beliefs?


Today there are about a hundred or so ‘patched up occult Algonquian tribes’ floating around the state.

However this does not make them a real First People Tribe of Native Americans.

The closest tribe (village of people), one can come to having an occult shamans became existent soon after the Dutch and/or long before the Spanish showed up.

Just because these tribes, the Timucuans/Tequesta worshipped the Sun, Moon and animals does not mean that they were of the occult?

Welcome to my visitor from the City Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam, you are the second visitor and thank you.

While looking for information about

kill native American evil spirits

Because of your countries philosophy of life I would try, without hurting feeling or harming your right to your belief to answer your question, please remember, our people believe, spirits both good and bad, if they exist at all, are communicated through “Smudging to Kiehtan?”

Smudging to a Native of this country, “Indian Country”, it least my people, is always a prayer to our “Supreme Being” Kiehtan.

It does not matter if the people consider the spirit good or bad, this prayer (Smudging) ask for guidance from Grandfather our Supreme Being and as stated “Kiehtan” for the judgment.

Because of faithfully praying we believe that evil “Bad Spirits” must leave!

Because of faithfully praying we believe that Kiehtan will show the way to help a lost spirit (Good Spirit) to a final rest.

Peace to you

Change may help other Native Americans receive federal tribe status

Before digging into these two articles a few pointers, if I may?

I want nothing to do with “tribes” in New England and for sure in the state of Connecticut!

your elders shunned my grandfather while hoping for a little of the casino change,

I shun you now!

That said, “to my followers, does this make sense to you?

Tribes in states like Connecticut with governors like Governor Dannel Malloy can never be recognized as Native Americans because, as he said,” Governor Dannel Malloy welcomed the ruling, saying an earlier draft form of the changes

would have put Connecticut in a difficult position.”

Well, we natives sure would not want to put Connecticut in a difficult position would we?

After all they only burned our villages, raped our women, sent our children off to boarding schools in other states, killed our elders and took our land,

what were we thinking?

Now this new law is telling Native Americans that if we can prove family from 1900 on we can finely become “Native Americans?”

If we have never filed a petition for recognition before?

New rules on the recognition of Indian tribes appear to shut the door on three Connecticut tribes who have been petitioning for federal status for years.

The Schaghticokes in Kent,

the Golden Hill Paugussetts


the Eastern Pequot’s are not recognized as tribes by the federal government.

The Bureau of Indian Affairs issued a final ruling on the process for recognition.

While it makes it easier for some tribes to prove their ancestry, tribes cannot use the existence of a state reservation as the sole basis for federal recognition.

The ruling also says that tribes which have previously been denied cannot re-petition.

Governor Dannel Malloy welcomed the ruling, saying an earlier draft form of the changes would have put Connecticut in a difficult position.

Change may one day help Monacans, other Native Americans receive federal tribe status

Speaking of federal recognition,

“it’s a right that’s owed to us,”

“It’s not about just checks and money and stuff,

the federal government owes us this right.”

I have no idea what an Eastern Pequot is but that’s OK because I’m not sure about the rest of those Pequot’s either?

I do know about the Native people called ‘Schaghticokes’ in Kent and the ‘Golden Hill Paugussetts’ in Colchester.

Japans Military

Japan Unleashed:

The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

It is way past time to talk about a different take on one of our faithful friends since the last world war?

The first thing is something that I have been writing about a few times in the past, the Japans Military.

I for one am pleased to watch her get back into re-building her protection from known enemies

and also giving her best friend, the USA, a little help in patrolling trouble spots around the world.

I am sure by now we all have heard to old saying,

“He that is with-out sin may cast the first stone?”

Yes, I lost an uncle and many of my family’s friends during this war.

However, I also lost some family (ancestors) and friends in just about every war that we have been in including the Revolutionary war.

It is time to move on?

The good people of Japan should add a few amendments to their construction and also move on?

Japan has good reason to overhaul its postwar military policy. Currently, it faces a host of threats that could require proactive and vigorous military response. North Korea’s pugnacious behavior and growing capability to threaten Japan has been a longstanding concern. China’s recently escalated contest with Japan over the Senkaku Islands and a whole array of other unresolved issues introducing a menacing element into the already precarious relations between the two big Asian nations.

Traditional Native American (Indian ) Burial Information.

I am a bit surprised that you came to our site because, as you know, you are surrounded by a

“Indian Nation & Casino?”

Maybe you are from a school?

If you are then this is good because this, our tribe teachers our ancestors ways.

True Traditional Native Americans east of the Mississippi river have

“Burial Ceremonies.”

The difference is that the prayer although extremely important, is a small part of this ceremony.

Soaugi Ceremony

The next teaching is just as, if not even more important,

“True Traditional Native Americans east of the Mississippi river,”

Do not have ‘Rituals’ we have ceremonies?

The different is the Following of different Gods!

“We follow Kiehtan the ‘Supreme Being (Creator)!”

People that do ‘Rituals’ follow a creation made by Creator!”

Florida A State of Continual Embarrassment

Florida alliance for retired Americans Richard Polangin urging people not to move to Florida, don’t even bother to visit Florida!

Richard Polangin on Facing Florida with Mike Vasilinda

(1) a very wide income and wealth disparity that constrains economic opportunity, limits job creation, and increases poverty;

(2) a regressive tax system that does not provide sufficient funding for core government functions;

(3) unacceptable high levels of public corruption, violent crime, identity theft and fraud; and

(4) a weak public education system.  The seriousness of these problems cannot be overemphasized, and we believe that together these problems likely make Florida the most undesirable state among all 50 states.

Florida is ranked:  first in fraud;

first in identity theft;

first in home foreclosures;

first in public corruption convictions;

first in the number of physicians who are prolific prescribers of controlled substances (narcotics) to Medicare patients;

first in numbers of dangerous cities among the top 100 cities with the greatest numbers of local violent crimes reported to the FBI;

second in the number of school shootings since the tragedy at Sandy Hook; third in widest income disparity between the top 1 percent and the bottom 99%; among the three worst states for future retirement security;

ninth in violent crime rate;

44th in per capita spending on public welfare programs;

44th in a positive (quality) environment to foster the professional well-being of teachers;

46th in STEM jobs (science, technology, engineering and math);

49th in per capita spending on higher education;

49th in access to emergency care;

50th in per capita spending on all public education;


50th in the safety of pedestrians.

It took almost 8 years to find it

If nothing else I am tenacious, after just under 8 years I finely found something that I can side on with you republicans about your president!

Of all of the good things we can and should talk about him,

 he is not a singer,

“Praise God.”

He is a lot better at singing

“Amazing Grace”

then I will ever be,



“GOD, thank you for blessing our president!”


“God bless America!”


On March 23, 2010, I sat down at a table in the East Room of the White House and signed my name on a law that said, once and for all, that health care would no longer be a privilege for a few.

It would be a right for everyone.

Five years later, after more than 50 votes in Congress to repeal or weaken this law and multiple challenges before the Supreme Court, here is what we know today:

This law worked.

It’s still working.

It has changed and saved American lives.

It has set this country on a smarter, stronger course.

And it’s here to stay.

If that means something to you today, add your voice here.

This morning, the Supreme Court upheld one of the most critical parts of health reform — the part that has made it easier for Americans to afford health insurance, no matter where you live.

If the challenges to this law had succeeded, millions would have had thousands of dollars in tax credits taken away.

Insurance would have once again become unaffordable for many Americans.

Many would have even become uninsured again. Ultimately, everyone’s premiums could have gone up.

Because of this law, and because of today’s decision, millions of Americans will continue to receive the tax credits that have given about 8 in 10 people who buy insurance on the new Health Insurance Marketplaces the choice of a health care plan that costs less than $100 a month.

If you’re a parent, you can keep your kids on your plan until they turn 26 — something that has covered millions of young people so far.

That’s because of this law.

If you’re a senior, or have a disability, this law gives you discounts on your prescriptions — something that has saved 9 million Americans an average of $1,600 so far.

If you’re a woman, you can’t be charged more than anybody else — even if you’ve had cancer, or your husband had heart disease, or just because you’re a woman.

Your insurer has to offer free preventive services like mammograms.

They can’t place annual or lifetime caps on your care.

And when it comes to preexisting conditions — someday, our grandkids will ask us if there was really a time when America discriminated against people who got sick.

Because that’s something this law has ended for good.

Five years in and more than 16 million insured Americans later, this is no longer just about a law. This isn’t just about the Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare.

This is health care in America.

Today is a victory for every American whose life will continue to become more secure because of this law.

And 20, 30, 50 years from now, most Americans may not know what “Obamacare” is.

And that’s okay. That’s the point.

Because today, this reform remains what it always has been — a set of fairer rules and tougher protections that have made health care in America more affordable, more attainable, and more about you.

That’s who we are as Americans.

We look out for one another.

We take care of each other.

We root for one another’s success.

We strive to do better, to be better, than the generation before us, and we try to build something better for the generation that comes behind us.

And today, with this behind us, let’s come together and keep building something better.

That starts right now.

Thank you,

President Barack Obama
