From the below linked blog:
“Been busy and first chance to respond – what has always served to validate the nations prophecies for me is even though they may vary from nation to nation there are common threads they share, and goes to a belief I’ve expressed numerous times in this blog and elsewhere that each nation was given what they needed and could understand related to language, custom, and geography.
If that is true then none are meant to take precedence or another, they are threads that when woven together compose the fabric of the nations, a guideline and blueprint to live by not just as individuals but as “the people.”
Every one of our nations has referred to themselves in some manner or another as “the people”, with an understanding of what that meant – if we are to be honest though the numbers living their life as “the people” is declining as time marches on.
Animated movies such as Pocahontas employing bloated gas bags to do the “voice” of Powhatan are neither reflective of who we are or even historically accurate.
If they entertain that is the extent of their merit, that, and nothing more.
One could hardly expect Hollywood to make an animated film depicting Powhatan as a man with multiple wives and a single child by each, an alliance building effort – or Pocahontas as anything but a “princess” unless it was filled with gratuitous sex, violence, and came with an R rating.
I respect the beliefs and customs of all the nations and see them as part of a fabric as stated above.
Fabrics become frayed over time and fade if not cared for, this ceremonial fabric of the nations faces the same threat, a threat originating first with the invasion, then the reservation system, and now by those who offer them up as commodities to be purchased.
“Those” being individuals like the AIM leadership and their plastic shaman Crow Dog who never saw a dollar they wouldn’t bend over for.
They too may provide entertainment for some, but nothing they do can be said to be reflective of “the people”.
