November/Native American Month

November/Native American Month

I am pleased to see schools once again recognizing the second half of that first
‘Thanks Given Day’!
I looked this over this morning around 5am and deleted it
as enjoyable reading, and it was.
This afternoon after prayer, I feel the need to write.
I am please to see schools enjoying our people.
Elementary school children and their teachers can do no wrong by this old warrior, (Never)!
O. K.
You should notice after reading that
the school is in W. Virginia
so the tribes are East-coast people.
Native American is correct.

Making a Teepee is o k
A Eastern Wigwarm is also OK?
Because you live in the Eastern part of Native American Country.
Making a ghost mask in o k.
A grape vineTeardrop Catcher is also OK? 
Because you live in the Eastern part of Native American Country.
Navajo God's Eye is o k.
Because you live in the Eastern part of Native American Country.
The Native American Talking Stick is also O.K?

Johnson Elementary School third-graders hosted a Tribal Fair for family and friends before closing out school for Thanksgiving break.
Friday’s Tribal Fair, a collaborative effort among third-grade instructors, was part of a learning unit on Native Americans. The goal was to teach students not only about the history of Native Americans, but also about their culture, art and music.
Visitors could peruse student artwork and projects, as well as watch student performances of Native American customs.
November is American Indian Heritage Month, so we do a big unit on the Native Americans, and it covers content standards in subjects like social studies,” third-grade teacher Kim Olivio said. “We focus on about 10 tribes, while there are apparently over 200 that existed.”
When they entered the fair, parents, grandparents and other visitors were given a sheet with questions to ask students, who then could share what they learned about Native Americans.
Student MacKenna Rabren, 8, said her favorite part of the learning unit was doing crafts related to what the students had learned.
The god’s eye was my favorite thing we made. You take two Popsicle sticks, glue them together, and wrap yarn around them,” she said.
MacKenna said students also learned about and created their own Shaman masks, which were used by Native Americans to scare evil spirits out of sick people.
We also made wampums. Ours were out of macaroni, but they were actually made out of shells,” she said. “The purple stands for wealth and wisdom, white is for peace, and the black stands for unhappiness.”
Audrey Kerr said making a turtle rattle was her favorite project during the learning unit about Native Americans.
It took so much detail and a lot of effort; it was super cool,” she said. “I learned they lived in different types of houses than actual houses, too.”
Audrey said one thing she didn’t know before the learning unit was that one tribe became friends with the Pilgrims. She thought all Native Americans and settlers were enemies.

Is there such a thing as a black American?

There seems to be a subtle but concerted effort to paint black citizens who criticize President Donald Trump or the United States as un-American.
Black people who dare suggest that the country is not living up to its professed ideals are offhandedly deemed unpatriotic and ungrateful for the blessing of being born in the
shining city upon a hill.”
If our critiques are not met with a crude suggestion to buy a one-way ticket “back” to Africa, we’re accused of rent-seeking in laziness and victimization.
It’s as though some political strategist discovered the best way to counter claims that our leaders are indifferent to pervasive racial inequalities is to imply the accusers hate the nation and the troops. https://www.politico.com/magazine/story/2017/11/13/donald-trump-black-veterans-215823

Take few moments to look over this photo?
I love and serve this my country!

Oh, by the way,
Shechaim Ohjieshan is also proud to be a decedent from White (Irish) Ancestors.
Shechaim Ohjieshan is extremely unset with this story about
a Military Brother that is protecting the very people slamming him
his right to his opinion!
What is happening to our country America?
This is a proud Veteran of the United States of America!


Keystone Pipeline leaking once again!

Keystone Pipeline leaking once again!
This one oil leak plus the other 17 leaks that are reported in the following post is sending Caustic, Corrosive, Sulfur loaded oil down into the Aquifer of our brothers and sisters around Minnesota, Nebraska, Kansas and Missouri, effectively finishing the job not completed not so long ago with ‘Small Pox laden Blankets’!

Keystone Pipeline Suspends Operation After Leaking 210,000 Gallons of Oil in South Dakota

NOVEMBER 16, 2017
The federal Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration didn’t immediately return an email requesting additional information from The AP. Since 2010, companies have reported 17 spills bigger than the leak announced Thursday, topping 210,000 gallons (5,000 barrels) of crude oil or refined petroleum products, according to U.S. Department of Transportation records.
The existing Keystone pipeline transports crude from Canada to refineries in Illinois and Oklahoma, passing through the eastern Dakotas, Nebraska, Kansas and Missouri. It can handle nearly 600,000 barrels daily, or about 23 million gallons. TransCanada says on its website that the company has safely transported more than 1.5 billion barrels of oil, or about 63 billion gallons, through the system since operations began in 2010.
President Donald Trump issued a federal permit for the expansion project in March even though it had been rejected by the Obama administration. The Keystone XL project would move crude oil from Alberta, Canada, across Montana and South Dakota to Nebraska, where it would connect with existing pipelines feeding refineries along the Gulf Coast.


Teaching Native American respect of elders

Thank you for so many visits to one of our past posting
Teaching Native American respect of elders
Usually I like to remind my visitors of the distance from your state to our village however, I believe that respecting our elders is, or should be a (Give-me)? In other words, every day you become an elder to someone and every day you could meet someone your elder. We humans on ‘Mother Earth’ seem to have forgotten who or what an elder is. My elders, now ancestors, gave me a lesson in humility when answering the question, “Just who is an elder?” You are an elder young Fox, that’s what they called back then. Look around, how many children are younger then you? O. K. How many at this meeting, one of my grandfathers monthly meetings, are older then you. Remember that each time you teach, how many elders are around you? Now, for me, my elders are now ancestors. So, when I teach I must remember my ancestors, the Great Spirit, Father Sky, and last however never least (Creator)! So I try to teach with the humility of those elders that were teaching me.
Teaching Native American respect of elders
Welcome me to the visitor to some of my teaching websites and blog postings looking for answers to their questions about
Respect your elders?
When you hear or read about an elder saying that we must get back to the old ways, they are not asking you to do away with anything, just learn how they lived before this extremely fast moving lifestyle.
Just a short 76 years ago in the land of Uncasvillage, as I was growing up, every person, man, woman or child was the elder of anyone in the tribe younger than they were.
Even a 5 or 6 year old seeing a child younger about to get in trouble or get hurt would come to the rescue by teaching, why it would be wrong.
One should always teach with a loving heart, not a big stick!
Starting today, stop, sit and listen to an elder speak about life as they were growing up around their elders.
Let us remember all of our elders, native and non natives if not for elders we would not be here.
If not for the teaching of our elders, we would still be living in trees.
Native Americans honor your elders at celebrations.
What a great idea, Respect our elders?
I am pleased to be able to teach as much as possible about my traditional ancestors.
As you may or may not see while traveling around the internet, some teaching about our people will not compute with what the elders taught as the truth, many times often taught by non native people or not from my tribe!
Please remember that all questions about the websites and blogs will be answered by
