The Apache Woman~ An unidentified Apache woman, late 19th century In the mid-1860's, Sonoran merceneries raided a small Apache town near the US-Mexican border, near what are now the cities of Esqueda, Mexico and neighboring Douglas, Arizona. After slaughtering the captured males, they force-marched many of the surviving women southwest to the Gulf of California. Many of the women died en route, and the rest were sold into slavery and put to work in the fields of a local hacienda. Several of the Apache women, including a middle-aged grandmother from the Eastern Chiracahua nation named Dilchthe, hatched a plan to escape and return to their tribe. They surreptitiously gathered some supplies, and successfully broke away from the patron and, remembering the route they took in, fled east to the Gulf. Once their disappearance was discovered, the hacienda owners dispatched vaqueros to track them down, but the group of women evaded them. When they reached the gulf, they travelled north along its shore. After the food they brought with them ran out, they subsisted by eating leaves and bugs. The group of women travelled for nearly 300 miles up the coast, until they reached the mouth of the Colorado River. None of the women could swim, so they had no direct way of crossing the great river until Dilchthe made friends with an old Mexican woman who lived nearby. The woman told the party of a shallow spot in the river far to the north, where the confluence of the Colorado and Gila Rivers, near present-day Yuma, at the southern tip of the California-Arizona border. Dilchthe led the group up there and herself waded out into the Colorado River. Discovering it was safe to walk across, she motioned the others to join her, and they continued east. They were halfway home. They followed the Gila River toward Apache land. Despite the scorching heat in the Yuma Valley, Dilchthe prevented them from moving to the cooler, higher land because of enemy tribes. After three days of following the Gila, the women were ambushed by a party of Yuma warriors, who were no friends of the Apache; Dilchthe and one other Apache woman escaped by hiding in some brush, but the Yuma captured one other woman, and killed the rest. Dilchthe and her companion were the last two remaining, and they continued their walk, past what is now Phoenix and Tucson. Finally, they could not go any further. Suffering from exhaustion, hunger, and thirst, they were reaching the limits of their endurance; for their last hundred miles they had only been able to move at a slow walk. Finally, one misty morning, they collapsed on the side of a mountain near what is now the city of Safford. When the sky cleared, Dilchthe could see a heart-shaped mountain in the distance. Being an Apache, she knew the mountains of the desert southwest very well, and she recognized that one at once. She built a smoky fire as a signal beacon, and she and her companion laid down on the earth, too tired to move. In a moment of sheer coincidence, the Apache that investigated, and found the two women lying on the rocky soil, was Dilchthe's own son-in-law. In those days, it was customary for a man and his mother-in-law to avoid physical contact, but they both ignored that custom and embraced heartily. After walking for more than a thousand miles through harsh desert terrain, with no map or weapons and almost no food, these two women made it back from a life of slavery to their home tribe. Dilchthe was received back into her tribe as a returning hero.

Too many continue to focus on the past, and it is SO true that past pains and negative experience impact. No one can take that away. But we can work on our healing, forgiveness, letting go... in order to live our lives with fulfillment, relearning our pride in our culture, relearning our traditional ways, language. Our pride in ourselves grows, the more we take in and accept. We can accept that we have had these experiences, and we can also accept that our experiences have made us more whole, stronger, empathetic people, who now do what little we can to help others move forward in their lives. Each time we are triggered, or feel hurt.. because it will happen, in unexpected moments, sit with it .. and allow the natural process to flow. Stop the cycle of pushing it in, to hide behind your heart, controlling the energy of our voices, getting in the way of our spirit to flow freely... aho... Kat <3

~The Sacred Seven~ ~The ceremony of life begins by understanding the importance of the number seven, which is sacred to the Cherokee. While we do not know its origin, the elders have expressed it as relating to the four cardinal directions along with the upper world, the lower world, and the center.. The center, or fire, is the beginning. Its connection to the Great One has been desribed as an invisible cord. At birth we move into the direction of the East toward the light..~<3 ~Meditations with the Cherokee~ *Wallpaper* *Thank you from Shadow of the Wolf & Native Wisdom & Poems of the Heart~Melody~<3

DONATE TO SUPPORT THE STANDING ROCK LEGAL DEFENSE: lakotalaw.org/legalfund. We hate to have to say "We told you so" — last week the Keystone Pipeline leaked 210,000 gallons of oil near the Sisseton Wahpeton Sioux Reservation 170 miles from Standing Rock. This fight is not over til the last water protector is freed and the oil flowing under Lake Oahe is stopped. We also encourage you to donate to the Water Protector Legal Collective as they are now representing hundreds of defendants. #NoMorePipelines #WaterIsLife #ProtectingWaterIsNotACrime

Climate change threatens our very survival. But right now, the Trump-backed Chevron and Arctic driller Statoil are seismic blasting for oil in NZ waters. They know that more oil will hasten the climate catastrophe, and they know the oil age is over, but still they continue their desperate search. We've been out 50 nautical miles in a small boat and confronted them once, but to effectively continue our protest WE'RE GONNA NEED A BIGGER BOAT!

It's been over three months now since I left Oceti Sakowin and I'm calming down a bit more. I don't cry as much and I'm sleeping without nightmares, I still jump when a helicopter flies over but I'm getting used to it. After the first month I couldn't go on the way I was, I kept hearing elders saying the fire is lit inside all Water Protectors. so I became very active in my community and it is amazing how much better I am. I will never be the same woman I was and that's good, I am active. I am here to Protect. I am proud to be Native. I don't focus on painful images anymore like I did and on my website I see only beauty on the faces of the Water Protectors you can check it out yourself please do.

Caddo; Tale of Coyote And The Origin Of Death

World there is no such thing as death. Every one continued to live until there were so many people that there was not room for any more on the earth.

The chiefs held a council to determine what to do. One man arose and said that he thought it would be a good plan to have the people die and be gone for a little while, and then to return. As soon as he sat down Coyote jumped up and said that he thought that people ought to die forever, for this little world was not large enough to hold all of the people, and if the people who died came back to life there would not be food enough for all. All of the other men objected, saying that they did not want their friends and relatives to die and be gone forever, for then people would grieve and worry and there would not be any happiness in the world.

All except Coyote decided to have the people die and be gone for a little while, and then to come back to life.

The medicine-men built a large grass house facing the east, and when they had completed it they called all of the men of the tribe together and told them that they had decided to have the people who died come to the medicine-house and there be restored to life. The chief medicine-man said that he would put a large white and black eagle feather on top of the grass house, and that when the feather became bloody and fell over, the people would know that some one had died. Then all of the medicine-men were to come to the grass house and sing.

They would sing a song that would call the spirit of the dead to the grass house, and when the spirit came they would cause it to assume the form that it had while living, and then they would restore it to life again. All of the people were glad when the medicinemen announced these rules about death, for they were anxious for the dead to be restored to life and come again to live with them.

After a time they saw the eagle feather turn bloody and fall, and so they knew that some one had died. The medicine-men assembled in the grass house and sang, as they had promised that they would, for the spirit of the dead to come to them. In about ten days a whirlwind blew from the west, circled about the grass house, and finally, entered through the entrance in the east. From the whirlwind appeared a handsome young man who had been murdered by another tribe.

All of the people saw him and rejoiced except Coyote, who was displeased because his rules about dead were not carried out. In a short time the feather became bloody and fell again. Coyote saw it and at once went to the grass house. He took his seat near the door, and there sat with the singers for many days, and when at last he heard the whirlwind coming he slipped near the door, and as the whirlwind circled about the house and was about to enter, he closed the door. The spirit in the whirlwind, finding the door closed, whirled on by. Death forever was then introduced, and people from that time on grieved about the dead and were unhappy.

Now whenever any one meets a whirlwind or hears the wind whistle he says: is some one wandering about." Ever since Coyote closed the door the spirits of the dead have wandered over the earth, trying to find some place to go, until at last they find the road to spirit land.

Coyote jumped up and ran away and never came back, for when he saw what he had done he was afraid. Ever after that he ran from one place to another, always looking back over first one shoulder and then over the other, to see if any one was pursuing him, and ever since then he has been starving, for no one will give him anything to eat.
