.... and read this sacred song blessing (ghost song).

Dreaming About You

All my heart is blue, just to become near you. I sea you in the reflection of space and time. I am here to chime to bring in the heart of everyone, those willing to become bold. And it is time to tell the world, about our sails. We are stars in the sea and our hearts will wail as we sing our tales (whale our songs with tails). We love all of your wails. We love all of your tales.

This is the place where we share our face, the shining view of all we knew, the circle of love that grew. Wohpe near, the star flew down to the yard, humble upon the shore, where it is time to adore, the many whishes of our demand, sow we can understand, children need a helping hand. With the view of heaven and earth close at hand, let us understand the benefits of man, the treble to the bass, the heart to the pace. We are looking for the perfect face, the sun shines within and eliminates all that sin.

White and blue (water shined divine), the colors that slough and felt buoyant on our feet,m because we floated on the weep, the many tears of the river flowed. We felt the tows. There the bridge to heaven and earth grew, the falling river of consciousness and together we found the place of all that astounded our grace. We are the openness of the human race, pure and sought after by the tribes of nations divine. We are the stars returning home this time. We shine.

Set beneath the moon that glows, our hearts know how to overcome those who long for our suns, we pray and pray and then dance another wave. We bow and pray and sit up with a phase, a jitter (shake) to dance, to and fro our chance, to become the buoyancy of the road, where love grows. We the Ghost Dance know, our hearts bestow. We live in the rows, aligned and free, against no enemy.

Hold our hands to kingdoms to come, we are the living suns. We are the rhythm and the rhyme. We are the people who chime. We are the making of the silver rind, where paradise pierces the heart of our neighbor to bring them over. Join us this day, because we are about to pray. We are about to sing. We are about to bring the holy plate, the table set to consume at a constant rate, in order to become pleased, talking to each about needs. It is time to shine, the living heart of the divine.

White Buffalo Calf Woman sings with the heart of things that ring, the sacred binding to the view, paradise ensues. We will bring us home through the sacred ghost dance that shines, the wind that binds. Welcome to the heart of each other. We are Brothers (sundancers). We are Sisters (moondancers). We love each other (sacredprayerdancers).

Holiness David Running Eagle Shooting Star drums for us today to bring in the fulfillment of our rays. Holy and true, because he loves you. We are gentle to the divine, the heart within that always shines. Let us show you sublime. Follow me and I will cast out into the seas, the visions that bring home the gallantly.

Murdering whores killing themselves everyday, not learning about how to pray. Yet we stars are on our way. We pray every single day. And poor murdering whores send their own children to the grave, not understanding how to protect their own daze, because dreams grow on love, not the hatred you display. This is White Buffalo Calf Woman your Twin Deer Mother who peers deep into the heart of those who are annoyed, they want more (a great lacking, nothing ever fills, until they learn about loving thrills).

Lakota Ceremony by * Tashunka Witko *
Chanupa
Pipe Ceremony....Wohpea - White Buffalo Calf Woman brought the Sacred Pipe to the People and expounded on the 7 Ceremonies. The key here is that the Sacred Pipe was brought to the people Not the Medicine Folks, nor the leaders but the People.

The stone used by the Lakota and many other Peoples of The Plains is Pipe Stone, found only in one place for all the world it is the blood of all the ancestors that perished in the great flood. Yes there was only 1 great flood.

Many folks when first exposed to this way of life get impatient to have a pipe of their own but caution would be best here. To understand the weight of this instrument, and is nothing to be taken lightly. It's said that the pipe can bless 7 generations or condemn 7 generations. To carry or keep a sacred pipe, takes commitment, takes one to be and walk brutally honesty. The spirits say we like to help, they also say don't make fools of us.

Be careful of what you ask with this instrument, be careful on how you ask and your intent.
Remember to live a good life, and do good things with each day that you are given. Help each other and encourage each other to be good people.

We all play a part in what the future will be for the next generation. They will remember the things that they saw us do while we were with them and they will look at the path that we left behind for them to follow. Use your lifetime to leave a beautiful trail behind you.

Ariel Katherine Read The c’anunpa is Wakan, very sacred, and it is used only for prayer and good things. We don’t call this c’anunpa a pipe because in the English language the word, “pipe,” has many different meanings. Steel pipe, lead pipe, plastic pipe, sewer pipe, water pipe, there are many kinds of pipes.

The English language has often gotten me into trouble. It is a very dangerous language, like a sponge with too many holes, too many ways to interpret it. It’s easy to get misunderstood.

But I want to make it clear. This c’anunpa has this name and this Lakota word, c’anunpa, comes from the Creator. That’s the only name for this sacred object; that alone, nothing else.

I’m also not talking about the Sacred White Buffalo Calf C’anunpa which was brought to the Lakota people nineteen generations ago. I’m talking about the red stone c’anunpa which is even older. It is very ancient, from the days of the sacred spotted eagle, wanbli gleska, and it is the oldest c’anunpa we have here. It is the blood of our ancestors, the Lakota.

Whenever you see a red stone c’anunpa, it is a Lakota ceremony. By Lakota I mean it is only with the Lakota, Nakota, and Dakota [Sioux] Nations. Other American Indian Nations may have their own traditions with prayer pipes or peace pipes or ceremonial pipes which are made of a different stone. But the red stone c’anunpa is Lakota.

Today, I must speak about the c’anunpa because now everyone seems to have one. If people are going to have one, they must understand and follow the laws and commitments which accompany the c’anunpa. Unfortunately, many people do not know these things and do not follow what the c’anunpa says.

The C’anunpa Way is the Lakota Way. You carry it for the people, to pray for their health and help, to pray for the healing of the body, mind, and spirit. It is very wakan, it is very sacred, and it is not for selfish or greedy use.

So, we must know our original instructions for the c’anunpa. We have to know them and we have to follow them. There’s a way to carry a c’anunpa and there’s a way not to carry a c’anunpa.

A little child should not be given a c’anunpa or carry a c’anunpa. They do not know or understand. Moreover, they themselves are innocent and sacred.

Additionally, if a woman is in her time of menstruation, she is going through her own personal purification ceremony and she is in her sacred time. She should not be near a c’anunpa or other sacred ceremony. This is because you do not cross ceremonies; you do not perform two ceremonies at the same time. If you did, they would cancel each other out.

As I said, the c’anunpa itself has its Way. Its original instructions were given to us in the days of the winged people by a holy woman sent by Creator. It is the c’anunpa that is going to teach us this Way and it will also bring us back to our own original instructions as humans.

It is through the c’anunpa that we are going to survive. But as long as we fail to follow it, that survival will never happen. We’ll end up simply existing in a “guess” world, an uncertain world filled with pain and confusion, that’s all.

Yet, if you are not willing to follow the original instructions, then it is better not to carry a c’anunpa at all. It would be better not to accept it in the beginning. Because, once you carry it, you may try to put it down physically but you are always going to be a c’anunpa carrier in the eyes of the Creator, the Four Winds, and Unci Maka, Grandmother Earth. You cannot turn back. It is a lifetime commitment to Creator and it can be very difficult.

When you are given a c’anunpa to carry, you are asked these four questions:
July 18, 2012 at 8:19am · Like · 1
Ariel Katherine Read
Ariel Katherine Read · You have the c’anunpa and you pray and you think you are safe and that you belong to Creator. But what if a person comes and hits you in the face? What are you going to do? Do you pray? Or do you put the c’anunpa down and start fighting back? If you do that, it means you are weak and cannot carry a c’anunpa.

· So you get past that, and you think it’s done, and you are standing right there praying. But what if a dog comes and urinates on your leg? What are you going to do, kick it away?

This dog symbolizes other people. So the question really means, you’re praying well and doing things right but people are making fun of you or they intimidate you or they misjudge you or judge you unfairly. Or it means people make fun of your half-side or your children and laugh at you and your family. That’s what it means. What will you do then?

· So you think that is all in the past and you’re ok and still standing there praying. But what if somebody came and beat up your loved ones right in front of you? It could be your children or your wife. It could be your dad or some loved one that they beat up right there in front of you. What are you going to do? Are you going to use the c’anunpa to curse them? No. If you do that, you are weak and cannot carry a c’anunpa.

· So you think you got past everything and you’re in the clear and you’re still standing there praying. But what if they kill or brutalize one of your loved ones right in front of you? Are you going to quit the c’anunpa and get angry with the Creator? Are you going to leave everything and walk away? If you do, you are weak and cannot carry a c’anunpa.

They ask you these four things before you accept the c’anunpa. They tell you all these things and then ask you if you still want to carry a c’anunpa. Four times they will ask you. If you agree all four times, then ok.

Then they will say, “You are really unsica, you are a really pitiful human being, but you want to do this.” They will sing an ancient song to you and say, “So now, here is the c’anunpa. Carry this and don’t fool us again. Carry that c’anunpa in a good way. You are now a c’anunpa carrier.”

But remember, you carry that c’anunpa for the people, not for yourself. There’s no private c’anunpa. You help pray for the people who need prayers. You are a strong person. Even though you are pitiful, you are also a strong person and that is why you carry this c’anunpa.

That is why you need to stand like the buffalo against the snow storm or thunderstorm, with your head into the wind.

You do not misuse this c’anunpa in any way or any form. There are seven laws to abide by with the c’anunpa. You must abide by these laws. If somebody doesn’t believe me, hold the c’anunpa bowl, sit someplace by yourself and listen. Then it’s going to repeat these things to you.

· When you make the oath and accept the c’anunpa, you have to have a true wounsila, a true compassion. Not from the mind but from your heart, you must have wounsila.

· You must act with honor and respect towards your mother and father and all living things.

· When you carry a c’anunpa, you also have to have the forgiveness. You have to first forgive yourself for what you did to yourself, not what somebody else did to you. Then you forgive your relatives. Then you forgive the others.

· You cannot kill when you carry the c’anunpa. You cannot carry the c’anunpa if you have blood on your hands. That means, you cannot carry the c’anunpa if you murdered somebody in cold blood, if you murdered a defenseless and peaceful human being.

Having blood on your hands does not apply to those who must kill as warriors, as soldiers in a war. Killing in war is war and there have been wars throughout history. A soldier is not a murderer. My grandpa always said, “When you are a warrior fighting in a battle, kill your enemy without hating them. That way, if they happen to kill you in the battlefield, your spirit will go into the heavens like an arrow shot into the sky.”

· You cannot hate anything or have an angry heart. This also means that you cannot participate in things that create hate like gossip, lies, jealousy, and envy.

· You cannot steal or cheat.

· You must not use the c’anunpa for selfish, hurtful, or greedy reasons.

It all comes down to one little phrase: “Mitakuye oyasin,” we are all One, we are all related in the sacred hoop of life. To have true Mitakuye oyasin, then you must follow these things and carry the c’anunpa in a good way, in the right way.

So, whether you are awarded a c’anunpa or the spirits give you a c’anunpa, it doesn’t matter. Everyone has to follow these original instructions, the protocols as they call it. If they do, then the c’anunpa will continue on for the next generation and the generation after that.

Ho he’cetu yelo. I have spoken these words.

David Swallow, Wowitan Yuha Mani
Porcupine, South Dakota – The Pine Ridge Reservation

Dave Swallow, Jr. was born and raised near Wounded Knee, SD on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation and is a member of the Teton Lakota Nation, the band of Crazy Horse. He was taught the ancient Lakota ways by his Grandparents and is recognized by his own people, both on and off the reservation, as a Spiritual Leader and Sundance intercessor. He travels to teach about the sacredness of Mother Earth and to bring about awareness of the situation of his people back on the reservation.

David is fluent in his language, history, and of the treaties which were made and broken with the U.S. government. To sit with him as he sings these sacred songs and tells the stories of how the ceremonies, designs of the bead and quill work, and habits of everyday life came about will bring a smile to your heart and a compassion for a people in exile on the reservations. This exile places an impact on ceremonial responsibilities that do not have a place in modern political systems. In the Lakota way of living, ceremony and ritual is performed as a condition of living in a place. Their culture, which is a critical element for their survival as a people, is in great jeopardy of being lost completely.

Ariel Katherine Read When people are placed in the reservation systems, they are thrust into a barren place where they have to abandon former knowledge of this world. Through Lakota ceremony one learns of the stewardship and not ownership of the land, he learns humility and faith and comprehends the transcendent nature of reality and is initiated into the mysteries of the higher world. Dave will speak on the power of these traditional ceremonies and the importance of honoring these ceremonies in the way they were given by the spirit world.

Nyla Helper

David’s half side, is a descendent of a long line of medicine people from the Hunkpapa Lakota band of Chief Sitting Bull. Her great, great grandfather, Samuel Helper, was one of the few survivors of the infamous “Wounded Knee Massacre” which took the lives of 300 unarmed men, women and children in the winter of 1890.

Nyla continues her teachings from her grandmothers and shares many stories of how the woman’s role in Lakota life came about. Nyla was raised in the old traditional ways and brings much needed feminine perspective to the discussion of Lakota culture and spirituality.

Sadly, over a period of many years the purity of those ways has slowly eroded. Nyla is among the very few who have sought to preserve them in their original form. When we listen to her closely, not only can we hear the message, we can also feel it.

Ariel Katherine Read Black Elk (1863-1950) - Oglala Sioux
Black Elk's Earth Prayer

Grandfather, Great Spirit, once more behold me on earth and lean to hear my feeble voice. You lived first, and you are older than all need, older than all prayer. All things belong to you -- the two-legged, the four-legged, the wings of the air, and all green things that live.

"You have set the powers of the four quarters of the earth to cross each other. You have made me cross the good road and road of difficulties, and where they cross, the place is holy. Day in, day out, forevermore, you are the life of things."

Hey! Lean to hear my feeble voice.
At the center of the sacred hoop
You have said that I should make the tree to bloom.
With tears running, O Great Spirit, my Grandfather,
With running eyes I must say
The tree has never bloomed
Here I stand, and the tree is withered.
Again, I recall the great vision you gave me.
It may be that some little root of the sacred tree still lives.
Nourish it then
That it may leaf
And bloom
And fill with singing birds!
Hear me, that the people may once again
Find the good road
And the shielding tree.

" I think I have told you, but if I have not, you must have understood, that a man who has a vision is not able to use the power of it until after he has performed the vision on earth for the people to see... It was even then only after the heyoka ceremony, in which I performed my dog vision, that I had the power to practice as a medicine man, curing sick people; and many I cured with the power that came through me. Of course it was not I who cured. It was the power from the outer world, and the visions and ceremonies had only made me like a hole through which the power could come to the two-leggeds. If I thought that I was doing it myself, the hole would close up and no power could come through. Then everything I could do would be foolish..."

Revealing this, they walk.
A sacred herb -- revealing it, they walk.
Revealing this, they walk.
The sacred life of bison -- revealing it, they walk.
Revealing this, they walk.
A sacred eagle feather -- revealing it, they walk.
Revealing this, they walk.
The eagle and the bison -- like relatives they walk.

"The Six Grandfathers have placed in this world many things, all of which should be happy. Every little thing is sent for something, and in that thing there should be happiness and the power to make happy. Like the grasses showing tender faces to each other, thus we should do, for this was the wish of the Grandfathers of the World."

Thump, thump of the heart beat, the sound of the rhythmic feet. Remember the Rabbit shows you the eternal flow, the heart beams a glow. WE all know, the stream of the sweet heart, just a place to share the part, where man and woman join again, to make the rhythm and the bend, the eternal wind. Heart beat you make us complete. Thank you for all you gift to us, forever willing to share the true, the place where miracles come bloom. White Buffalo Calf Woman, elder crystal child, alightfromwithin.org I bow to all my Relatives. Time to show the thunder, the heart will stream the way, just knowing how to pray, a song and a dance, and then some romance. We will begin this way, each day, a loving wave.
