Into the Wild Festival news: I was born on the prairies where the wind blew free and there was nothing to bre

Latest update from Into the Wild

I was born on the prairies where the wind blew free and there was nothing to break the light of the sun. I was born where there were no enclosures.

I was warmed by the sun, rocked by the winds and sheltered by the trees as other Indian babes. I was living peaceably when the white man first came and stole our lands.

The soldiers never explained to the government when an Indian was wronged, but reported the misdeeds of the Indians. We took an oath not to do any wrong to each other or to scheme against each other. Yet this is not the way of the settlers.

There is one great spirit looking down on us all. We are all the children of spirit. The sun, the darkness, the winds are all listening to what we have to say.

When a child, my mother taught me to kneel and pray for strength, health, wisdom and protection. Sometimes we prayed in silence, sometimes each one prayed aloud; sometimes an aged person prayed for all mankind.

For us, life is about creating connection, with the Apache especially with the ancestors and that way of life that belongs in our bones.

Your grandmother and grandfathers hardships is the reason you are here. Don’t worry about what happened where and when. The most important thing is you have this life, right here and now!
