Excerpt from a letter written 2009-05-12 to me by Maori Grandmother Ade “Ita” (“Steadfast”), in describing the woman seen in her visions:
“She appears to me in a cream-colored dress made of hide with tassels. She appears lifelike to me; therefore I am seeing her like I would see you if we were to sit together.
Her hair is plaited (braided) worn either side to the front (of her) shoulders;
She comes with arms to her sides hands open; carrying nothing. She stands tall, serene and magnificent. She is Peace.” (italics mine)
On 2009-05-16 I shared the folllowing with our Maori Sister regarding her description of the woman in her vision.
MANATAKA, The Place of Peace, Hot Springs, Arkansas
This valley was a gathering place and a holy sacred site for thousands of years prior to the arrival of Europeans in North America. Some say that delegations from tribes and nations as far as South America and the northern tundra of present day Canada would journey to this place. No fighting was allowed, out of respect for the sacredness of this valley.
As the travelers neared the valley, from many miles away could be seen a mighty rainbow, due to the rising steam from the many hot springs within the valley. This was before the foreign invaders capped the springs and diverted the healing waters to their bath houses for use by the affluent businessmen.
“The Lady of the Rainbow, referred to as Ix Chel by the Maya, was said to have presided over the peace in the valley. Dressed in all white buckskin and holding one eagle feather in each hand, she stood on the mountain overseeing the peace. When quarrels did arise, a vision of the Rainbow Woman could be seen at twilight rising in the vapors of the highest pool as a warning to the offending person. If the guilty one did not listen to this warning, the Lady of the Rainbow came to him and dropped one feather at his feet, which meant it would be wiser to fly away than to disturb the peace again. If this warning was not heeded, she dropped the second feather as a sign to his family and others to remove the offender from the valley by whatever means necessary.” Lee Standing Bear, Cherokee
Note: The story of MANATAKA as told by Lee Standing Bear can be read at their website: http://manataka.org/page2.html
Note: There is a personal touch on the provenance of this sacred location: the bodies of my paternal grandfather and his wife lie in a burial ground on a hillside there. It was Summer of 2009 when I and my children traveled there where I offered a prayer over Grandfather’s grave; we all got to meet and spend time with Lee Standing Bear; I and my children recovered from the ground with our very hands an assortment of quartz crystal points and clusters that had been unfortunately, sadly, removed from one of the many caves in the area by earth moving equipment. I hold these treasures, experiential and artifacts, dear and sacred.
Joann Spotted Bear really has guts, courage and is very caring and trying to help the Lakota Nation. Millions upon millions of their dollars have been embezzled and in this video she expresses some fear in speaking out but she just keeps plugging away. These people really need help, they are living in poverty, black mold in their homes, sewer and water problems and i'm actually wondering what can we do to help? Her message comes across strong and clear. I really look up to her.
more videos from my friend Joann Spotted Bear which she has shared. The pow wow has some shaky footage but i love the customes, the music and dance.
JoAnn Spotted Bear is running for President of her tribe and she just posted this video. I think she has some good ideas to help the Lakota and she is knowledgeable and am sorry she wasn't able to talk on the radio as she had hoped, perhaps we can spread her message by sharing her talk i am posting. She also talks about values that i highly respect her opinion on this as well.
beautiful video Crystal Spirit Woman and I also like the ancient winds video by Jose Cabbera and his flute playing but i do not want winds coming here at the moment with that fire still burning towards town. It's now 70% contained - yes!
