Native American God.

Another good question of the day!

Grandfather a name for God to Native Americans?

People of the world (Mother Earth) have many names for their supreme being. Personally my favorite is the one found in the Jewish, Torah, ( I AM)!

Many of the true American Natives, Native Americans, call our Supreme being Grandfather, a name we know is Creator because this Supreme being created everything. This Creator outsiders call God, Jehovah, Allah and so on, however, some countries have or need more than one Supreme Being?

I happen to believe that Evolution is a big joke on humanity!

My blog, my opinion.

If you wish to see and hear one of my recognized true Traditional American Native Brothers, still out in the real world around Mother Earth, you must make plans to see him in person. Both Arvel and his wife Kim lived through a recent tornado. Kim was buried under some brick at her home. Arvel was traveling on I-75 at the time of the storm and was able to quickly exit the interstate and narrowly escape the storm. Arvel and Kim plan to offer a community wide gathering at the tornado site to encourage healing. This Native ritual will take place later on in the summer.

Native American 13 moon Warrior.

Blog question of the day.

Can a male go through the 13 moon ceremony?

The simple answer would be Yes, I guess?

Knowing by this question this person has no idea what is involved, this is the best answer to that question.

Being over 70 years now and confessing never heard of a boy or a man going through a Tribal Clan Mother 13 Moon Ceremony.

However, in this era of male/female discrimination, anything may be possible?

Now all one needs do is find a Spiritual Leader willing to over look this male/female fact and spend all of this time with this person necessary to complete the ceremony?

A Restaurant in Cave Creek serves Southwestern and Native American specialties, “the Native Americans lived off the vast desert landscape, like the Native Americans when we harvest, we never take too much or strip a plant bare we must leave some for Mother Earth and all the animals”.

Native American Traditional Gift Giving?

Gift giving the American native way.

Unfortunately for me, many of the blog questions have been coming from Canada so, please be mindful of the fact that even though it is true that many of my people traveled, not knowing what a boarded was, this blog answers questions from the knowledge of my elders now ancestors.

There are many ways for you to ask your question.

Question of the day.

Does one have to give a gift at a traditional native wedding?

NO!

Every gift on Mother Earth is given by Creator freely, therefore, every gift must be given freely, no matter what the ceremony.

That said, Creator never said that you cannot give a gift your way.

Most Spiritual leaders frown on money gifts as an after though, Kinnick~ Kinnick (Herbs) would be the preferred way to gift.

You may gift or not gift whatever you wish to gift, your gift is the correct gift to give.

Take back your Mother.

Did you know that none of the politicians back in the 1970’s in the New England states were Native Americans?

Some of the politicians in New England wish to see our people get some rights long overdue, some politicians just wanted to find a way to end our court battles or just did not care however, as usual, most of the politicians had other interest!

If a betting person I’d be willing to bet that this is how it went throughout Indian country.

Be that as it may, we now have America and the world believing that only people with a government passport ( a little plastic card) are allowed to be called Indian!

Indigenous people of Indian country, did you know that for every casino Indian there are at least 50 real American natives, Black, Red, Yellow, Brown and even some that look White.

If some of your ancestors were in this country before first contact, it should not matter as to how or why the casino Indians sold out, you are still an American Native and it is way past the time for you to stand up and be counted!

If you belong to a tribe, unite them.

If you do not but know that you have native blood, no matter how much, join one.

If you are not sure ask someone.

Get involved with helping to get all Indigenous people on our land ( Mother Earth) together as one people under Creator.

We need a few billion American natives marching on all of our capitals and we need this now.

Take back your ancestors and your Mother!

Native American gift protocol.

The correct way to gift an American Native is from your left hand to their left hand.

If the gift is words, then from your mouth with your left hand to the left shoulder of that person which you should know is the closest to the heart.

If the gift is too big, then your left hand to your heart, straight out pointing at the gift or gifts.

It is very easy to spot a real Traditional Native American.

They are the ones constantly giving something away.

If you choose to gift a true American Native, and you do not want that person giving it away, do not give it to them.

As a young native a wise old native told me , ” Once you give something to me, it is mine, you cannot tell me what to do with it”.

“Once I give something to you it is yours, never ask if I want it back, now you go do the same”.

If at any time an American Native is thought to have a religion, this would be it.

We believe that everything on Mother Earth is a free gift from Creator to all creatures, so if it is a free gift from Creator to all creatures, then it was predestined to be given away.

If Creator wishes you to have it, then it will be coming back.

The last of the Mohicans ( Mohegan’s)

 

This is another question that keeps coming up in my tracked.

 

 

The Last of the Mohicans by James Fennimore Cooper, first published in February 1826.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Is a will written novel and a good fiction film 1992 about Indians.

 

 

Yes, it is true that Mr. Cooper is a relation.

 

 

Yes, it is true that Uncas is the first Sachem of our people and that Russell Means is a great warrior Native American.

 

 

However, it is also true that the book and the film take liberties with the past in order to make and sell the book and the movie.

 

 

Nothing wrong with that as long as it is understood that they are both only fictions for your enjoyment and that you remember

 

 

that we are still very much a part of this land called, Mother Earth.

 

 

I did enjoy reading and then watching the Last of the Mohicans while knowing that they, the Mohicans as with our people are still around.

 

 

The story takes place in 1757, about the French and Indian war when France and Great Britain battled for control of the Colonies.

 

 

This story was built on some very close to the truth information about the knowledge of a scout during a war,

 

 

a good scout could tell if a body had been moved, the principal character Uncas, after a well-known Sachem of the Mohegan people,

 

 

allied with the English in 17th-century.

 

 

Mr. Cooper confuse and merge the names of the two tribes , Mohican and the Mohegan people in order to make for a good story.

 

 

The Mohican are in the Great Lakes area, the Mohegan’s left that area and live up and down the east coast.

 

 

Hawkeye (Daniel Day-Lewis) in this play is a European-born adopted son of the Mohican scout Chingachgook (Russell Means).
