On October 31st - A statement regarding the situation at Fukushima, Japan was released to the general public. This statement reflects the wisdom of the Spiritual People of the Earth, of North and South America, working in unity to restore peace, harmony and balance for our collective future and for all living beings. This statement is written in black and white with a foreign language that is not our own and does not convey the full depth of our concerns. It was released through the Council of Elders after a meeting in late September at Green Grass, SD - home of teh White Buffalo Calf Pipe of the Lakota, Nakota and Dakota. Hear the entirety of the statement as read by Tiokasin Ghosthorse.

EVAN PRITCHARD - Talks about what Henry Hudson really did at this time of the year. It should not be surprising to learn that the Algonquin perspective concerning Henry Hudson's historic visit would be different than that told in most English history books. I for one firmly believe that the saga of the Half Moon of 1609 began 392 years before, on a tiny island in the Bay of Fundy still called Fire Island by the Mi'kmaq people who live nearby and who consider it a sacred shrine. It was there in what would become St. Johns, New Brunswick, Canada, that a series of eight prophets arrived, according to the Red Sky Scrolls. They brought warnings for the future and teachings for the ages. They brought these to the Algonquian speaking people, and, so some believe, for all humankind. They spoke of "medicine wheels," and hoops within hoops of what we'd call ecosystems, and hoops within hoops of what we'd call "time," though there still today is no such word in the local language of the Mi'kmaq people.
