That is so wonderful. Towodi is my spirit bird and communicator. I know when I'm on the right path when I see them when I travel. I usually make a call to them and they answer back even sometimes following my car for a while before departing. I was gifted with a hawk by my Elders and have used each and every part for spiritual purposes. It's good to hear from you again my Sister and I hope your time connecting again was good for the spirit...

Before the invasion on their land of the white man, the custom of wearing Indian headdress spread through the many tribes. However, each headdress varies from tribe to tribe #Sioux

The conversations happening within the tag are cathartic, inspiring and eye-opening. For many natives using the #DearNonNatives tag, it has become our Chicken Soup for the Soul or rather our Wojapi for the Native Soul.

Thank you for sharing. He has the heartbeat of the Earth in his spirit. I think that this is one way that he will communicate with the ancestors throughout his life.

+Merwynn L. I still don't have TV or radio - but with a computer the world is selectively at your fingertips. My Dad grew up on a farm in northern Ontario on the way to Algonquin Park - loved to visit my grandparents there ... lots of lovely horses they took care of for other people.

Well said, Vincent!  Have Native Men lost their inner warrior?

+O Pechanga​ yes we women are stronge we are the glue that sometimes holds a family together. We give birth to the ines called warriors with no thought of the woman who bore that warrior. When arttacked and someone asks you if you would die for your family the answer is always yes not because we are weak but we are strong enough to know to protect the next generation.

Little butterfly fluttered happily about from flower to flower until one day she happened upon a plant with large leaves. The plant lived healthy and happily except for one leaf which lie upon the ground dieing. She asked it "why do you lay here dieing rather than taking more healing life from the main stem?". The leaf answered quietly "I have lived my life happily but now I sacrifice myself for a greater purpose". Butterfly looked at it and asked "why do you do this? What is this purpose?". The leaf slowly unfurled and revealed a cocoon growing upon it. "All life has its time and all life has its end but here is the greatest joy. To sacrifice yourself for another life so that it may continue to thrive". The butterfly wondered in amazement at this and flew away. A few weeks later as she grew tired she happened upon an ant who was starving and could find no food. She remembered the words of the leaf and settled upon the ground nearby. As she breathed her last and thought to herself "sacrifice must be the greatest gift of all for it continues to give eternally".

festivals, outfits of every different colour will be worn. Headdresses, headbands, feathered wings, fringed skirts and trousers, beaded breastplates, and animal hides all make up the vivid outfits of the Navajo people.

"Tree of Peace" by Oren Lyons
"When we walk upon Mother Earth, we always plant our feet carefully because we know the faces of our future generations are looking up at us from beneath the ground. We never forget them.

The environment isn't over here. The environment isn't over there. You are the environment.

All things are bound together, all things connect. Whatever befalls the earth, befalls also the children of the earth."
