Red Cedar

Long ago, long...long ago, when the earth was very new, the Creator made all things, and all things were good. He made the sun, the moon, and the stars in the heavens. And, He made the length of day...twelve hours of daylight - twelve hours of darkness...twelve hours of daylight - twelve hours of darkness. And that was… Continue

Black bird, red wing

Black bird, red wing

by Nickole Brown

So this is where the last year

of the Mayan calendar begins—

5,000 birds falling on Beebe,

Arkansas, a state that could smooth

out with the sway of the plains

but instead sputters the silence

of the first syllable like a pothole

that hits before you're off the

on ramp—say it—



ending with that blade

of rusted teeth to chew

through the last of what's left

Moving History: The Evolution of the Powwow

Moving History: The Evolution of the Powwow

“Powwows are a celebration of being Indian!”

By Dennis W. Zotigh

By Carol Berry January 31, 2011

DENVER—The eagle, cultural icon to Native Americans and the U.S. alike, is becoming emblematic of something else too: the effort to balance the ceremonial use of threatened animals with federal law.

Tribal representatives are gearing up for a second round of meetings with officials from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to discuss the issues surrounding the ceremonial use of eagles in Indian country. Although the bird was removed from the… Continue

Scientists Suggest a Native Woman Travelled to Europe a Thousand Years Ago

By ICTMN Staff February 1, 2011

Scientists speculate that a Native woman might have traveled from America to Europe a thousand years ago. This bold theory is based on the genetic research by Agnar Helgason, a scholar at Iceland’s deCODE Genetics and an associate research professor at the University of Iceland. According to an article published on the Time Magazine website, Helgason was researching the origin of the Icelandic population when he discovered that a small group of Icelanders —… Continue

Bill Miller’s List of 10 Essential Songs for Native Musicians (THIS LIST SURPRISED ME!)

Bill Miller is driving across Iowa, talking on his cell phone about the songs he loves, many of which he first heard on his car radio in the 1970s.

Miller, who is Mohican from the Stockbridge-Munsee Community in Wisconsin, is a three-time Grammy winner and his work spans symphonies, traditional and popular music in a Native key. He has made his home in Nashville; a city that he notes is on the route of the Trail of Tears and was a hub in the civil-rights movement. To Miller it was a… Continue

Snowed In: Preparing Food for Winter Hardship

By Dale Carson January 28, 2011

As ‘the white stuff’ piles a foot deep or more in New England, I begin to wonder how our ancestors survived winters like this two to four hundred years ago.

One thing they did was “prepare”—a tradition I try to carry on. When tribes or bands traveled to the coastline in summer to enjoy clams, oysters, scallops, crabs, lobsters, herring, shad and more, they not only ate the species daily by the sea, but dried or smoked them to bring back to… Continue

Translators Unravel 150-year-old Dakota Letters

By ICTMN Staff January 24, 2011

For the past 10 years, Dakota elder Clifford Canku has been poring over letters written by Dakota men who were imprisoned after the Dakota Conflict of 1862. Canku is one of a few academics working to translate letters from the written Dakota language; eventually upwards of 50 of them will be published in a book. The stories of life in the prison and the uncertain times have proven revelatory. “People died,” says Canku. “They were in prison. They experienced… Continue

If we want change we need to be willing to fight for it...........

Just a thought

The best way to deal with a situation is to hit them in their POCKETS.......

What does this mean?

Good and Services.........

So if we can all get together and figure out what the government relies on most as fuel and then boycott it and a unite which would mean great personal sacrifice then maybe someone will start listening.

For instance the constant rise in gas prices...........Around vacation time folks need to not take a distant vacation...Boycott gas… Continue

History of Native American Dreamcatchers

Dreamcatchers are an authentic American Indian tradition, from the Ojibway (Chippewa) tribe. Ojibway people would tie sinew strands in a web around a small round or tear-shaped frame--in a somewhat similar pattern to how they tied webbing for their snowshoes--and hang this "dream-catcher" as a charm to protect sleeping children from nightmares. The legend is that the bad… Continue

A Christmas story enjoy

The old man sat in his gas station on a cold Christmas Eve. He hadn’t been anywhere in years since his wife had passed away. He had no decorations, no tree, no lights. It was just another day to him. He didn’t hate Christmas, just couldn’t find a reason to celebrate. There were no children in his life. His wife had gone.

Christmas winter

He was sitting there looking at the snow that had been falling for the last hour and wondering what it was all about when the door opened… Continue

A poem on peace for you to enjoy

Color Splash Rainbow Pictures, Images and Photos

'Peace' by Christine

If peace was something to hold in your hand,

Something tangible to feel, something like sand,

We could each sprinkle it all over the Earth,

From Capetown to London, from LA to Perth,

It's color would be a bright leafy green,

Glistening and shiny for all to be seen,

This would stop our anger, jealousy and tears,

Calm all our… Continue
