spring is coming soon, we are here gearing up, getting ready for the first foods, our natural foods, our medicines and to grow new foods for the people There is much to learn about the foods and medicines we put into our bodies that give us added benefits of health and healing. There are teachings of our culture that help us to understand our relationship to foods. We have an opportunity to work together where ever we live to create education to our youth and our families to bring us better health. Todays episode will begin to glide into our foods, and what our young warrior Society is currently doing and has done to bring this education into our local schools, college and communities thru our foods and plant medicines. Honor all life, includes our greater connection to the natural world around us and our spiritual connection that extends to the very beginning of time. thank you for joining us as our focus will now begin toward this time of year.

in this world that has fast evolved and left many of us struggling and lost searching for answers and direction, our creation stories have long served us since time immemorial to center us in a deeper connection to what is most important in life. In a modern society where we are struggling to keep our heads above water, to find recognition, peace and feed our egos and fill our pocket books, we take a step back o a greater value that is more richer and deeper than any void we have to fill. A simple story that may bring some sense of understanding to why it is important to not give up, to keep standing strong and why you see our relatives standing strong thru the violence, greed and currupotin they face on the front lines that opposes them.
No matter where you live there are stories such as this and ill share a resource you can look up find more information no matter where you live to encourage you to enrich your lives with that sacred connection right around you that has been here since the time we were created here.
Please enjoy this episode we have only a few more left of this winter season so we are running out of time to tell stories such as this, so please give us a few minutes of your day and enjoy a word that may spark your world into a greater connection that is all around you. You are never alone and we are all in this together now..
There are challenges in this world we live, many. distractions, many desires, wants, goals and wish lists.. How do we represent ourselves to our true self by the way we talk to ourselves and how do we talk to others ? If you need clarification go into social media and see how explosive and hate fueled we can react as a society..watch tv, music videos and reality shows and see how detached we have become to one another and separated from our personal realities.. many struggle alone, many struggle within. How do we recognize our own persona beauty and mission in life. ?

A part of healing and connection is finding out about the land we live upon and its history and our connection to the land and the people of that land. Join me on this journey and take a passenger seat as I share with you some perspectives from across the nation, from the torrid history to what we can do today to create understanding and better honest communication toward honoring humanity. Also I leave with you a key app that can really be very useful no matter where you live on turtle island territory. We begin with a prayer song on my flute and at the end I share a beautiful prayer song for the land from my tribal nation. In order to gain trust, communication and build relationships it is imperative that we begin the educational journeys toward awareness and decolonization. I provide a safe place here in my passenger seat on this ride, so I thank you for hoping in and joining me for a ride toward honoring life.

How do we move forward toward wellness, and why is unity important in this process ? how do we honor Humanity?? How do we show all our children hope for the future? how do we learn to forgive, heal and to move forward to places of happiness and personal growth & freedom?
in this raw episode I will give you a broad perspective of challenges and inspiration we may climb together in this series to give you a perspective of what living life on the good red road means
you will hear a very rare account of some very powerful concepts and awareness to unravel terms and concepts that keep us apart and why it is collectively promising for our future to become aware and educated on decolonization, historic trauma and cylcles of violence and how those create barriers that prevent us from moving forward toward humanity , health, happiness, friendships and healing.
