Rescuing American Indian Ceremonies

About 27 inches height

Help me Rescue this Person...

From time to time I have rescued American Indian objects from the places they are being held. It does not happen frequently. The first time was in Nashville, African object of great power...but that is a story for another time.

In America, it was much easier to keep a modest fund I had for this purpose. Over the years a number of profound objects in the hands of idle collectors were returned to daily work in the mystery life. Sacred Objects sent back to their homes. I do not rescue items to keep them for myself. I rescue them so they can be free again. The old Indians believe certain classes of sacred object have status as people.

Here in Italy, for an old Indian, the money is not so easy to gather in for the expenses and services that the sacred bundles require. We spend about 1,000 dollars on candles to stay with the bundle, for example. The care and protection of the sacred requires an infrastructure and the cold hard cash to maintain that infrastructure. This is really true for a bundle like the Four Directions Unity Bundle that is traveling out into the world.

Some of you might want to help. There are two large Hopi Katsina carvings in an art shop in Milan. I could get them out of there for around $1,500, which is a great price. Such things would be more expensive in the USA, but here in Italy the value is lower, along with the understanding. So it is a good price.

I would like to bring them to Pantelleria and install them as guardians of the sacred bundle. They have told me when I visited them that they would like to come to Pantelleria and work hard. They do not want to be collectors items in some random household.

If somebody wants to help an old Indian get these spirits over to Pantelleria, I would be very appreciative. I am running out of time to rescue them. I will show you some paintings and sculptures and you can have your choice of what you like.

I will give you in art something of equal or greater value.

Obama Government WILL NOT support American Indian rights

Obama (Professional Liar)

For all his rhetoric, and a splash of American Indian blood, and in spite of being actually adopted by the great Crow Nation, the Obama administration will not sign the UN International Declaration of Universal Indigenous People Rights and Protections.....

Just like Bill Clinton, who was given an Eagle Feather by Sun Child, Jr, George Bush, and now Obama, the USA refuses to admit to or even recognize that the American and other indigenous people of the world deserve any protection. This hypocrisy in the face of so much horrible and bad news for tribal people worldwide is stunning.

Obama, in particular, should be ashamed. I voted for this black man pretending to be a white man, loud-talking, vote-pimping to tribes, finger-pointing sell out, rich slave of the corporate world asshole. American Indians really came out for this punk of a corporate and wall street slave. Obama may have been born in the USA, he is not a socialist or a closet muslim...he is a dime a dozen cheap politician like all the other slavering dogs that crawl on their bellies throughout the nation's capital. He was just smart enough to know what to say to a disgusted US population to sneak into the White House. He has, in my view, betrayed his base over and over.

Tragically, he remains the best hope for American leadership, considering the rabid clown show being put forward by the deep pockets and brain-dead republican right.....the hopeless slapstick tragedy being confirmed today with the entry of Rick "the Prick" Perry into the slow-motion train wreck called national elections for US President.

I am so glad that I no longer live in the USA...yet it is my birth home and even though I am an American Indian who deeply cares what happens to indigenous people, I also love my home country.

Here are links to two important events announced by international human rights groups in recent days....

US says no to indigenous rights


Amnesty Int. warns of indigenous peoples' rights undermined

I hope the left will get up off their complacent, timid, fat asses this cycle and do something, anything......the left has become so timid, so easily intimidated, so unwilling to call out the big pile of shit sitting in the middle of the room....
