Another House Fire ~ Frank Silverhawk

Update 11 Jan 2008:

I have a mailing address for monetary donations now. If you would like to get the mailing address, please e-mail me. Thanks for everyones prayers.

wrulf

Prayers for Frank - I just got word that his home burned down - he lost his new puppy also. As soon as I have more info I will post it. We are going to Bob walks with fire's house tomorrow and Frank might be there.

***Update 30 December 2007:

Greetings everyone,

I spent some time with Frank last night. He is staying with Dan and Linda Jameson. He has a hand shake deal with a man to purchase a truck/trailer to live in. It will cost $2200 and as soon as he gets it paid off he will get it. It seemed to me that this is of top priority at the moment. I have had an overwhelming response wanting to donate money and told him this. He explained that the best way, if people want to send money would be to send it to Mike Serio's address. However, he did not know Mikes address, so I will be contacting Mike today to get it. I don't want to post his address online here, so if you would like to make a monetary donation please e-mail me and let me know that, this way when I get the address, I will email it directly to you from that e-mail.

He is pretty tore up over losing his puppy, they were really bonding well and it was good therapy for him, I beleive. He lost his new Regalia, But Debra and Phil are already working on replacing that - I will be sending her pictures I have of him in it. He is not really concerned about too much else, he has been given or aquired things such as pots and pans replaced already. He IS looking for a small refrigerator (NOT A MINI if he can help it) One that would fit in a trailer, but has a freezer. I am sure any clothing, shoes, gift cards etc. would be welcomed. He was gifted a feather last night, and I am sure he lost all his Native related items also.

Frank drummed, sang, and prayed with us last night - We love you Granpa!

Much Love and many prayers,

wrulf

This Week’s Topic: What Inspires You?

What was Your Inspiration? Was it your family? Something you could buy with the money you saved by not buying cigarettes? Was it a goal to get more active, join a gym, or take up a sport?

Whatever it was, we hope it helped. And we’d like you to think about why it helped.

Maybe you’ve realized how smoking may have been hurting your family. And you want to be there for them in the years to come.

Perhaps it dawned on you how much money you were spending on cigarettes.

It could be that you saw how smoking may have kept you from living your life to the fullest.

Take some time today to think about what it’s like to be a nonsmoker. Think about how Your Inspiration helped you get to where you are, and can continue to help in the smoke-free months and years to come. Is it time to change Your Inspiration? Simply click on the My Profile link at the top of the screen.

We all need inspiration in life. We also need to reward ourselves once in a while. Make sure you continue to reward yourself, too.

I don't mean to preach ~ Proud I am ~ 8 months ~ No Ciggy's

YAY!

Desert Thunder - Pow wow in Iraq

The following is part of an article on the National Pow Wow in Washington, from the Washington Post.

They call the drum "Desert Thunder."

A group of Native American soldiers and Marines stationed at an air base near Fallujah in western Iraq in 2004 fashioned the drum, stretching the tarp from a cot across the top of a 55-gallon barrel. They wanted to hold a powwow in the middle of the war zone, and a drum is an intrinsic part of the ceremony.

"We were missing our powwow," said Staff Sgt. Debra Mooney of the Oklahoma-based 120th Engineer Battalion of the Army National Guard, recalling the ceremony outside Fallujah. "In our hearts and minds, we were right at home."

It was an unforgettable night: "Usually, the faces of the soldiers are serious, focused and look older than they are," Mooney said. But that night, "they looked like young men and women again."

The makeshift drum was at center stage at Verizon Center yesterday, where the third National Powwow is continuing this weekend. On opening day, veterans of the Iraq and Vietnam wars, some in military uniform, marched to the beat of drums as part of a tribute to the "fallen warriors" and to the troops serving in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Someone in this Preserve is NOT picking up after their pet!


Your purpose in Life?


I saw this thing scurrying in the road - then it proceeded to dig a hole, pull out a plug from deep in the hole, and place the worm into it. If you look closely, you can see a small flying creature that was following with this Big flying creature hanging around. After the worm gets taken into the hole, the small flying creature zips into the hole with them. The Buzzy Chirpy, Squirrell like noise you hear is coming from the Big Flying Creature

The Hopi Elders Speak

Something that came my way, and I am passing it on to all who know

The Hopi Elders Speak

We Are the Ones
We've Been Waiting For
You have been telling the people that this is the
Eleventh Hour. Now you must go back and tell the
people that this is The Hour.

And there are things to be considered:
Where are you living?
What are you doing?
What are your relationships?
Are you in right relation?
Where is your water?
Know your garden.
It is time to speak your Truth.
Create your community.
Be good to each other.
And do not look outside yourself for the leader.
This could be a good time!

There is a river flowing now very fast. It is so great
and swift that there are those who will be afraid.
They will try to hold on to the shore. They will feel
they are being torn apart, and they will suffer greatly.
Know the river has its destination. The elders say we
must let go of the shore, push off into the middle of the
river, keep our eyes open, and our heads above the
water. See who is in there with you and celebrate.
At this time in history, we are to take nothing personally.
Least of all, ourselves. For the moment that we do,
our spiritual growth and journey comes to a halt.
The time of the lone wolf is over.

Gather yourselves!
Banish the word struggle from your attitude and
your vocabulary. All that we do now must be done
in a sacred manner and in celebration.
We are the ones we've been waiting for.

Please Help!!! ...Whose Bones are these???

Please if anyone can help...

I was led to find these bones by a Hawk that appeared about 5 feet away from me, sitting on a branch about 5 feet off the ground - well, it made my hair stand on end, and these bones are very interesting - I have had guesses of Giant Amadillo pelvics - see my photo's on Flicr for a closer look

Seems to be a left and right - one side has a dimpled texture - top edge you see in picture, seems to have had connective tissue??

They are about 7" long by 5" wide

Tribal police break up Indian reservation&#39;s beer blockade

Hey Y'all I got a call from an Uncle out in Oklahoma. Duane is a good friend of my uncle. They arrested Duane, Russel Means, and a few others. I also heard they beat the brothers up. ***YA U BELIEVE IT*** I THOUGHT THEM DAYS WERE OVER!!!!!

Please pray Brothers and Sisters

Much Love and Many Prayers,

PINE RIDGE, South Dakota (AP) -- Tribal police Thursday shut down a volunteer blockade aimed at keeping beer out of the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation, where alcoholism is rampant, and arrested three organizers who refused to leave.

Only a few vehicles had been checked for alcohol by the time Oglala Sioux tribal police told the volunteers to stop because of safety concerns. After several minutes of arguing, police arrested actor and American Indian activist Russell Means; Duane Martin Sr.; and Frank LaMere, a Winnebago activist.

Martin was arrested after it appeared he fought with officers over a spear he was carrying. He spoke in Lakota as more than a half-dozen officers wrestled him to the ground.

The three were arrested on charges of disorderly conduct and obstruction of justice, said tribal police Chief James Twiss.

"You can ask only so long before you have to arrest them and get them into custody," Twiss said.

"It looked like the violence was initiated by tribal police," said Mark Vasina of Nebraskans for Peace. His group and Martin's Strong Heart Civil Rights Movement staged the blockade.

About two dozen people were at Thursday's blockade, but only four or five actually were stopping vehicles. About half the people there were reporters.

As many as 20 tribal officers were called in to break up the blockade, while about a dozen Nebraska law officers stood by in Whiteclay, a village just outside the 16,500-member reservation.

Alcoholism is rampant on the reservation, which bans alcohol, and the volunteers had hoped the blockade would help curtail bootlegging. Four stores in Whiteclay sell about 4 million cans of beer a year, mostly to American Indians.

Blockade workers, wearing bright green construction vests, had planned to stop vehicles, ask occupants whether they had any alcohol and confiscate it if they did. They attempted a similar blockade last year, but it was abandoned when police raised safety concerns, and both sides agreed to work together to address the problem.

Beer cans litter reservation roads and the streets of Whiteclay. People loiter outside the stores. Some try to trade tools, electronics and other things for beer.

"I'm tired of my people dying. You've got 18-, 19-year-olds trading alcohol for sex," said Martin, whose fellow organizer, Means, was a leader of the American Indian Movement and led the 1973 uprising at Wounded Knee, South Dakota. Means ran unsuccessfully for the Libertarian nomination for president in 1988.

Martin had indicated organizers didn't need support from the tribal government, citing support of the Oglala Sioux's traditional leader, Chief Oliver Red Cloud. But organizers had wanted law enforcers to take over the blockade to ensure it remained nonviolent.

Twiss said that he empathizes with the group's mission but that he has to follow tribal law. He added that tribal police conduct at least 15 sobriety checkpoints on the reservation each year and plan to do one starting Friday and running through Wednesday -- including the road between Whiteclay and the reservation.

Earlier, acting tribal police Capt. Wilmer Youngman said the searches the volunteers planned went beyond the authority of police. "We can't even search vehicles" without having probable cause to believe a crime has been committed, he said.

Twiss said he told the organizers a year ago they needed to change tribal law and make the blockade legal -- but they didn't. "They had a whole year to do something legislatively," Twiss said.
