Elder’s Meditation of the Day February 23

“We’ve got to learn what’s going on today in the world, and we’ve got to get an education so we can survive.” –Jimmy Jackson, OJIBWA

Indian people have the ability to adapt. In these modern times, we Native people must walk two roads. We must get educated so our people don’t lose. We need lawyers, doctors, nurses, foresters, scientists, educators, carpenters, welders. These skills are needed to help the people. While we are learning we need to remember to keep our culture, learn our dances, sing our songs, learn to speak our own language and maintain our culture for future generations.

Great Spirit, let my education never lack the meaning and value of Indian spirituality.

SOMETHING EXTRA TO THINK ABOUT

Msit Nókmaq~All My Relations,
We must teach our children the importance of being educated. Without it there is no real hope of accomplishment. Educating our children in the old ways is wonderful and respectful but we also need to educate them in the modern worlds ways to be capable of handling many various situations and doing it with strength of endurance, finesse and tact.
~ Arthur Medicine Eagle Sonier, MEGAMAW

Gitsch Manito-Creator, Wásóq-Spiritworld, Please show us the direction to teach our children the importance of being educated in this world today. Please help us to show it does not mean we must give up our Spiritual walk and ancestral ways.
Welálin-ThankYou, Msit Nókmaq, Chi-Miigwetch, Mitauke Oyasin

IF YOU ARE ENJOYING READING THE WISDOM OF THE ELDERS PLEASE USE THE LINKS ABOVE TO SUPPORT THEM FINANCIALLY, IF YOU CAN, THIS IS HOW I CAN SUPPORT AND UPLIFT THIS. ALL DONATIONS DO NOT IN ANY WAY GO TO ME. THEY GO TO WHICH EVER OF THE LINKS, YOU CHOOSE FROM ABOVE. THE MONIES FURTHER FINANCE MAKING THIS KNOWLEDGE MORE AVAILABLE TO MANY, IN THE WORLD, WHILE IT FURTHERS RECOVERY THRU THE WHITE BISON MOVEMENT. WHITE BISON MOVEMENT HAS BEEN BRINGING WAYS OF RECOVERY LIFE, NOT JUST TO THE ONE ‘NEEDING RECOVERY’, BUT INSTEAD TO THE WHOLE FAMILY ‘NEEDING RECOVERY IN A DIFFERENT FORM’
THE MEDICINE WHEEL WAYS OF GOING THRU THE 12 STEPS OF RECOVERY ADDRESS THE WHOLE FAMILY AND HEALING THE WHOLE FAMILY. HAVING BEEN INVOLVED WITH THEM SINCERELY SINCE EARLY 2000’S, I CAN, PERSONALLY, ATTEST FOR THE FACT THE NATIVE APPROACH IS MUCH MORE COMPREHESIVE AND BRINGS OPTIONS RECOVERY IN SUCH A WAY IT IS KEEPING WITH THE NATIVE TRADITIONS, WAY OF LIFE AND RESPECTS.
ARTHUR MEDICINE EAGLE, SESE TO IT, DAILY; THAT THE ELDER’S MEDITATIONS GET POSTED AND COVERS THE COSTS OF WEB HOSTING IT FROM HIS OWN POCKET IF ENOUGH DONATIONS ARE NOT COLLECTED. BEING A TRUE ELDER, HE WOULD NOT, NOR WILL NOT ASK FOR HELP WITH MORE THAN THE COST OF WEB HOSTING…BUT HE DOES INCURE OTHER EXPENSES ASSOCIATED WITH WEB HOSTING AND GETTING HELP WHEN HE NEEDS IT. NOT TO MENTION ALL THE TIME HE PERSONALLY SPENDS GETTING THIS OUT TO US. SO PLEASE KEEP IN MIND, IF CONSIDERING MAKING A DONATION TO HELP HIM.
*EACH LINK ABOVE HAS IT’S OWN DONATION LINK TO DONATE SPECIFICALLY TO EACH ONE OR LINKS TO GET INVOLVED WITH EACH ONE THEM, IF YOU WISH.
