For those of you that are into learning from Native American Elders there is a great daily meditation put out each day by an organization called http://whitebison.org. You can get the daily meditations in your email by subscribing here http://www.whitebison.org/meditation/index.php
It is a great service and I enjoy reading them each day. Makes me stop and think sometimes which is good. Take a minute and read about what whitebison does. I believe in what they are doing and support them.
Here is the meditation for today April 18, 2009
Elder's Meditation of the Day - April 18
"Our people don't come in parts. Either you are Indian, or you are not."
We really need to take a look at how Indian People are talking about Indian People. We say there are Rez Indians, Traditional Indians, Urban Indians and Breeds. This type of thinking will keep us separated. An Indian is an Indian, a brother is a brother, a sister is a sister. We are all related. Today, let us respect ourselves and our people. Today, let me realize Indians are Indians.
Great Spirit, let me see the Unity of the People. Indians are Indians.
