"Riding the Storm"

Apache culture

Yes, Apache culture is alive and well!

 Apache doll was made for my daughter, Rhiannon, by Coyotero Apache Roberta Cody (an astonishing natural beauty whose smile would resurrect Lazarus in a heartbeat). Dolls in cradleboards are common since Arizona made it illegal to transport babies in cradleboards. Neither the State Legislature nor the Department of Transportation can cite one single instance where an Apache cradleboard failed a crash test, but instead of a cradleboard of natural, resilitent materials constructed with prayers, babies must now be transported in plastic/nylon webbing "safety" seats which transform healthy babies into quadruplegics every day of the year.

He was called such racial slurs as "Half breed", since people criticized him for being native american, even though he was also part white.  Later on, during the 1960's he went into the Vietnam War, where it was a tragic time for the US. Trained in the martial arts he used his army strategy skills to the fullest and it worked. Nowadays, Chuck Norris is retired at the age of 61, but has accomplished alot.

  Earth Healing Ceremony

Earth Healing Ceremon

by: Medicine Grizzly Bear

O Great Creator,
I come before you in a humble manner
and offer you this sacred pipe.
With tears in my eyes and an ancient song from my heart
I pray.

To the four powers of Creation,
To the Grandfather Sun,
To the Grandmother Moon,
To the Mother Earth,
And to my ancestors.

I pray for my relations in Nature,
All those who walk, crawl, fly, and swim,
Seen and unseen,
To the good spirits that exist in every part of Creation.

I ask that you bless our elders and children and families and friends,
And the brothers and sisters in prison.
I pray for the ones who are sick on drugs and alcohol
And for those homeless and forlorn.
I also pray for peace among the four races of humankind.

May there be good health and healing for this Earth,
May there be Beauty above me,
May there be Beauty below me,
May there be Beauty in me,
May there be Beauty around me.
I ask that this world be filled with Peace, Love and Beauty.

    Earths Oceans

    Leading-edge anti-inflammatory drugs and potentially life-saving cancer treatments contain ingredients from fish and marine organisms.

    Many of the foods you eat contain compounds derived from marine life.

    There are 3 to 500 million species of organisms in the ocean, yet these vast resources are largely unexplored. To learn more about everyday products that come from the ocean environment, take a walk through the Smithsonian Institution, National Museum of Natural History's Ocean Planet "virtual exhibit" website:

    Tribe's Rally for WaterStory from the Sacramento Bee (

    Two American Indian tribes say the Northern California Power Agency and one of the nation's largest water districts are taking too much water out of the river, destroying the fish population and their way of life. Roughly 60 Hoopa Valley and Yurok Indians, along with members of Friends of the River, demonstrated in front of NCPA offices in Roseville on Monday afternoon. They waved signs, beat a ceremonial drum and asked the agency to end a legal battle that they say has blocked restoration of the Trinity River for years. To Read More Click Here...

    Movie spurs interest in 'Missing' dialec

    SANTA FE, New Mexico (AP) -- Word swept through the Mescalero reservation like an early winter wind that characters in the film "The Missing" spoke a dialect of Apache.

    Most adult Apaches in the audiences have said they could understand every word of the Chiricahua dialect -- and the children suddenly wished they could, too.
