Do we fight or do we lay down our lives? Do we go extinct, or do we sound the war drums? What would the noble ones say? I heard of wise men who have turn down wars to save the souls of their people. To save them from shedding any blood. To save them from eternal conflict of taking another’s life. Because they believed that we live on. The same spirit that possess this mortal body will continue into the eternities. They sung songs of hope and forgiveness. They sung songs of freedom and resilience. But the songs were eternal and echoed through the heavens. They sung of life beyond this one and beyond the clouds. This was the way of my people because they knew, that for the pure soul, Victory was imminent. please follow me: -@[@wenativeamerican_
So you’re free from Britain...? Congrats. Does that mean you’re immigrants too? Does that mean you were once seeking refuge also? So you came here because of religious freedom and searching for independence? But what happened to the people who were already here? And Why do you call it “discovery” when it was already inhabited with a long beautiful history. What have you done for your freedom? At What price did it come? Was it worth it? please follow me: -@[@wenativeamerican_
“You are made of thunder and lightning. You are made of sage and evergreen. You are made of squash and corn. You are made of prayers and songs. You are made of bow strings and drum beats. You are made of war paint and eagle feathers. You are made of everything that makes you both a healer and a warrior” .xo Photo of: 😆 Please Follow 👉 @native_online via:zoey1harley1 Thanks you so much! 😖
On the road again. Today we found our first ever stash of “Golden Hills” turquoise. This mine is in northern Kazakhstan. We saw a video today of how this gorgeous “lavender” turquoise is mined. They have to wait until winter to access the mountain-top peaks. It’s too wet any other time of the year to dig. The family and their employees go down single-man tunnels with a wench. Meanwhile, snow is falling and blowing all around exposing red earth-encrusted slopes. Seeing the deliberate mining process brings a deeper appreciation to this beautiful mineral. We also got to meet the Navajo silversmiths who are entrusted with cutting it into cabs, and setting it into jewelry. Such a special day! We can’t wait to share our finds with you.
