|"Come forward and join hands with us in this great work for the Creator."|
|--Traditional Circle of Elders, NORTHERN CHEYENNE|
|The Elders have spent years learning to pray and communicate with the Great Spirit. Their job is to pass this knowledge onto the young people. The Elders have told us we are now in a great time of healing. The Creator is guiding them to help the young people figure this out. We must get involved and participate. We should pray and see what it is the Great Spirit wants us to do. We need to sacrifice our time to help the people and to be of maximum use to the Creator. Every person is needed to accomplish this great healing.|
I was on my way to Mexico to do some sacred work, and these two beautiful children were seated in front of me on the plane...we played and sang, and made finger-plays. It was so awesome....and it's time you know, for the new Elders to step up to the plate and teach the children. Our Elders are on their way back to Creator...it's up to those of us who are now the "Elders" to fix the messy minds we have created in our children.... Raising Children is NOT a Democratic process....we need to love our children & grandchildren, but we must do so with a firm yet loving touch. It's about the good of the world and All Our Relations, not just for our immediate family. It's about teaching the natural laws and the way of balance if we are to survive.
