I SPY: A Pow Wow

Dec 6, 2016

Is there still hope in America?  I'm feeling so.  The Indians have won!  Hip, Hip, Hooray!!  Sunday, December 4, 2016 is one for the books and going down in history.  It was a huge win for Native American rights when the Dakota Access Pipeline project was put to a stop.  I'm so happy for the natives and for us.  I was always on their side.  After all, nobody should suffer from the greed of a multi billion dollar project that would carry crude oil across four states, and potentially run the risk of it contaminating our water supply.  We ALL deserve clean water don't we?  But also happy the indigenous people get their sacred land back that is home for many generations and they can now return to peace after months of protesting which started to get ugly.

Have you ever met American Indians?  In the summer of 2012 I was in New Mexico, and was blessed to visit a pueblo Indian reservation in Taos.  This six year old boy Dylan was my guide, and he and his family invited me into their home, cooked for me and accompanied me to their Pow Wow.

The Pow Wow was the highlight of my road trip!  If you ever have a chance to attend one please do.  It's a lot of fun, between the food, dancing, and amazing costumes, and a great way to absorb the culture.

The American Indians are a simple community, practicing peace, love and warmth.  Lets hope they can continue to be left at peace when our new President elect Donald Trump comes into office.  Keep praying America!
