In early days we were close to nature. We judged time, weather conditions, and many things by the elements--the good earth, the blue sky, the flying of geese, and the changing winds. We looked to these for guidance and answers. Our prayers and thanksgiving were said to the four winds--to the East, from whence the new day was born; to the South, which sent the warm breeze which gave a feeling of comfort; to the West, which ended the day and brought rest; and to the North, the Mother of winter whose sharp air awakened a time of preparation for the long days ahead. We lived by God's hand through nature and evaluated the changing winds to tell us or warn us of what was ahead. Today we are again evaluating the changing winds. May we be strong in spirit and equal to our Fathers of another day in reading the signs accurately and interpreting them wisely. May Wah-Kon-Tah, the Great Spirit, look down upon us, guide us, inspire us, and give us courage and wisdom. Above all, may He look down upon us and be pleased."........unknown speaker to Congress



THESE FOLLOWING PAGES WERE MADE FOR SEVERAL REASONS. THE MOST IMPORTANT REASON IS BECAUSE IT IS A PART OF MY BELIEFS, AND MY SPIRITUAL PATH. I HAVE BEEN EXPOSED TO MANY OTHER PATHS IN MY LIFETYME. I SAW MANY THINGS THAT I HAD FELT THAT WAS NOT RIGHT OR HAD BEEN AT ODDS WITH. I KNEW THEY WERE NOT FOR ME. EACH OF US HAVE TO TRAVEL OUR PATHS, HOPING THEY WILL END AT THE SAME PLACE AS WITH OTHERS.

NO MATTER HOW YOU VIEW GOD,OR WHAT AND HOW YOU WORSHIP, THAT IS YOU. IN MY LIFE I HAVE SEARCHED MANY THINGS TO FILL THAT "VOID" OF SOMETHING INSIDE ME. SOMETHING I FELT THAT WAS IMPORTANT, YET MISSING. THRU THE COURSE OF MY LIFE, I HAVE BEEN NUDGED, SOMETYMES NOT SO GENTLY, TO THE POINT OF WHERE I AM AT. DURING THIS COURSE, I WAS FORTUNATE ENOUGH TO CROSS MY PATH WITH ONE WHO HAS LEAD ME TO A HIGHER POINT OF WHO AND WHAT I AM.

THIS PERSON TAUGHT ME THINGS THAT I NEVER KNEW EXISITED. HE TAUGHT ME HOW TO LOOK, HOW TO PERCIEVE THRU TYMES THAT HAD BEEN HARD. HE SHOWED ME THINGS THAT WERE SO SIMPLE. IN WAYS, HE WAS MY "GANDHI". HE WAS MY TEACHER. MY SPIRITUAL TEACHER. AS EACH DAY I EVOLVE IN MY LIFE, I STILL HEAR HIS WORDS AND WISDOM. THE GREAT SPIRIT, OUR FATHER GOD, CREATOR OF ALL, HAD TRULY WORKED THRU HIM. THIS MAN, KNOWN AS ARGONIO REDFEATHER, MADE HIS GREATEST JOURNEY June 21,2001. THE THINGS THAT I WILL SHARE IN HERE, ARE SOME OF THE THINGS HE HAD SHOWN ME. IN WAYS HE WILL BE STILL TEACHING, AND THE GIFTS OF THE GREAT SPIRIT STILL WILL BE SHARED FOR ALL OF THOSE WHO SEEK UNDERSTANDING, AND KNOWLEDGE, BUT ALSO WHO SEEKS THE LOVE THE GREAT SPIRIT HAS FOR ALL OF US.

SO THESE PAGES ARE DEDICATED TO HIS MEMORY OF WHO AND WHAT HE WAS. A NATIVE AMERICAN SHAMAN. THESE PAGES ARE NOT DISPLAYED TO "CONVERT" ANYONE. THEY ARE DISPLAYED WITH RESPECT AND PASSION OF A TRADITION AND CULTURE OF A SOCIETY FORGOTTEN WITHIN AND AROUND US. UNDERSTAND THESE PAGES ARE NOT TOTALLY FOR A CAUSE, I WOULD LIKE TO SEE IT AS A MAP FOR ANYONE, REGARDLESS OF THE ETHNIC BACKGROUND AND LINEAGE. FOR WE ARE ALL HUMAN. THE "LABELLING" HAS TO STOP, THAN WE CAN MOVE AND EVOLVE INTO THE CREATURE WE WERE DESIGN FOR.

NATIVE AMERICAN SPIRITUALITY TAKES US BACK TO OUR ROOTS.IT TEACHES US HOW WE ARE ALL CONNECTED. NOT TO JUST EACH OTHER BUT TO OUR PLANET AND WORLD. SO I ASK IF YOU "BORROW" THESE THINGS THAT WILL YOU FIND ON THESE PAGES, PLEASE USE THEM WITH HONOR AND RESPECT.NOT JUST FOR ME AS THE "AUTHOR", BUT TO WHERE IT CAME FROM. OF A TRADITION THAT IS STILL BEING PRACTICED, AND THAT IT IS SACRED TO THEM AS A WHOLE, BUT MORE SO TO THE GREAT SPIRIT................AHO
