Welcome to the group John enjoy
GOOD EVENING EVERYONE!
WISHING ALL OF YOU A HAPPY PRODUCTIVE WEEK...
If I have been of service, if I have glimpsed more of the nature and essence of ultimate good, if I am inspired to reach wider horizons of thought and action, if I am at peace with myself, it has been a successful day.
[from Meditation Station]
I'm happy [despite much pain] and listening to the radio this morning:

I saw this in another group of mine...and I wanted to share this...I don't know how to put up the picture...but if you click on the above you will see and hear such sweet things...such sweet voices and see amazing things.
lovingly I place this for all to see
I haven't been a very active member of care2 recently. I have come back very selectively, one can get so busy in so many groups. At any rate I would like to get to know you lovely folks better. How good to be part of such a postive circle!
A Kwakiutl Legend
Once there was a chief who had never had a dance. All the other chiefs had big dances, but Wakiash none. Therefore Wakiash was unhappy. He thought for a long while about the dance. Then he went up into the mountains to fast. Four days he fasted. On the fourth day he fell asleep. Then something fell on his breast. It was a green frog. Frog said, "Wake up."Then Wakiash waked up. He looked about to see where he was. Frog said, "You are on Raven's back. Raven will fly around the world with you." So Raven flew. Raven flew all around the world. Raven showed Wakiash everything in the world.
On the fourth day, Raven flew past a house with a totem pole in front of it. Wakiash could hear singing in the house. Wakiash wished he could take the totem pole and the house with him.Now Frog knew what Wakiash was thinking. Frog told Raven. Raven stopped and Frog told Wakiash to hide behind the door. Frog said, "When they dance, jump out into the room."The people in the house began to dance. They were animal people. But they could not sing or dance. One said, "Something is the matter. Someone is near us." Chief said, "Let one who can run faster than the flames go around the house and see."
So Mouse went. Mouse could go anywhere, even into a box. Now Mouse looked like a woman; she had taken off her animal clothes. Mouse ran out, but Wakiash caught her. Wakiash said, "Wait. I will give you something." So he gave her a piece of mountain goat's fat. Wakiash said to Mouse, "I want the totem pole and the house. I want the dances and the songs." Mouse said, "Wait until I come again." Mouse went back into the house. She said, "I could find nobody." So the animal people tried again to dance. They tried three times. Each time, Chief sent Mouse out to see if some one was near. Each time, Mouse talked with Wakiash. The third time Mouse said, "When they begin to dance, jump into the room."
So the animal people began to dance. Then Wakiash sprang into the room. The dancers were ashamed. They had taken off their animal clothes and looked like men. So the animal people were silent. Then Mouse said, "What does this man want?" Now Wakiash wanted the totem pole and the house. He wanted the dances and the songs. Mouse knew what Wakiash was thinking. Mouse told the animal people. Chief said, "Let the man sit down. We will show him how to dance." So they danced. Then Chief asked Wakiash what kind of a dance he would like to choose. They were using masks for the dance. Wakiash wanted the Echo mask, and the Little Man mask, - the little man who talks, talks, and quarrels with others. Mouse told the people what Wakiash was thinking. Then Chief said, "You can take the totem pole and the house also. You can take the masks and dances, for one dance."
Then Chief folded up the house very small. He put it in a dancer's headdress. Chief said, "When you reach home, throw down this bundle. The house will unfold and you can give a dance." Then Wakiash went back to Raven. Wakiash climbed on Raven's back and went to sleep. When he awoke, Raven and Frog were gone. Wakiash was alone. It was night and the tribe was asleep.
Then Wakiash threw down the bundle. Behold! the house and totem pole were there. The whale painted on the house was blowing. The animals on the totem pole were making noises. At once the tribe woke up. They came to see Wakiash. Wakiash found he had been gone four years instead of four days. Then Wakiash gave a great dance. He taught the people the songs. Echo came to the dance. He repeated all the sounds they made. When they finished the dance, behold! the house was gone. It went back to the animal people. Thus all the chiefs were ashamed because Wakiash had the best dance.
Then Wakiash made out of wood a house and another totem pole. They called it Kalakuyuwish, "the pole that holds up the sky."

Thank you Runningfox for the invitation to this group.
Sorry I haven't been around much. My husband is off chemo now(after 2 yrs of trtmnt) and tumor is gone. It is a possible re-curring cancer so he must have Ct scans every 3 mths & blood work every 6 wks. The last surgery on my left foot seems to have done the trick. Still healing and will be for another 6mths but the pain is at a much more tolerable level.
Thanks For The Invite Runningfox
i wish you a very happy new year and may all you sow today blossom into crops to be proud of
I am extending a warm welcome to all my friends who have joined with us..I thank each of you for helping us make this group much better and helping it grow..
Today is my New Year and it is starting off very good indeed..
Most people never stop and think about just when did American Indians celebrate the start of a new year..My ancestors started the new year on the day the day and night were equal which is also the first day of spring..The day after the five day celebration of the beginning of the new year was the day set aside to begin planting and according to historical documents I have read most of the agriculture dependant tribes also began their new year on the spring equinox..
I am writing this to say HAPPY NEW YEAR TO EACH OF YOU AND MAY THE COMING NEW YEAR BE A JOY AND BLESSING FILLED YEAR.. I strongly believe the coming year will be a much better one than the one before this..
Happy New Year To all of you and thanks for your friendship..
Oh thank you for joining us! I have prayed for this group to have a good solid following and a place to learn and be taught the ways of the Native Americans. All nations!
