We have all lived life times as Native American, Aboriginal, Asian, European, poor, rich, elitist and or teacher. It’s a state of mind. That’s the perfect example of why we are all brothers and sisters. All one perfect in the light and love of God, Wakantanka, Krisna, Muhammad whatever you want to call the one who created us all as one. There are many ceremonies that we could re-learn to suit the times. Many sacred elders teaching their ceremonies to those willing to learn the right intentions or right mind. We are all sacred right now it is just a state of mind we need to re-learn.

It is terrible what has and is happening to native people and to our land. We are all feeling the affects of corrupt governments with greedy destructive minds. That is the way of the ego mind attached to the physical death and desire. All ceremonies connect us to ourselves, mother earth most importantly to guidance from the great spirit to live harmoniously and get our mind back to God.

We are not just physical beings in our true state. All one spirit mind. No separation through gender, race or religion. If somebody wants to wear a kmart head dress to a festival to have fun they are not setting an intention of war. If a native person gathers and makes a war bonnet, yes, they are setting the intention of war. Chances are these days they will run into a tank sold to a corrupt government by a corrupt government, like we have in Australia.

It’s okay we will learn the right way in time, especially with our love, forgiveness, and tolerance. It has already happened when we get out of the ego mind. Many people are doing dodgy things to make money. We have some choices who we give our money to, some just take it. We are changing things. We all have our little ceremonies that we have adapted to the changing times to keep us sane. Maybe it’s divisive to tell people they are not native and what they can and cannot do. If we do what we do with good intentions and forgive those we disagree with we will evolve.

This is my humble opinion.
