Grandmother Agnes be at peace and surrounded by love

Grandmother’s Prayer

“I am a voice for the voiceless. We are speaking to an unseen world.
Speaking for Mother Earth, trying to stop our spiritual blindness.
We speak for the animal kingdom, for those in the waters, for the ‘four leggeds’ and the one leggeds(trees), the Bengal tiger, the elephant, the creepy crawlers.
I pray that the creator hears us. The creatures have a right to be. The creator gave us instructions about this and how to be a long time ago. He told us ways to take care of ourselves, what to eat and where to live. But now we are unbalanced.
We cut the green off our Mother’s face. We pollute the water, Her blood.
We do clearcut logging on the tops of mountains, when the trees they are the ones that call the wind and rain. Without the ancient trees at the top of our mountains, we are in trouble. The little trees can’t do the same work as the old trees that have been destroyed”... Grandmother Agnes Baker Pilgrim

May your day be filled with blessings

Like the sun that lights the sky,

And may you have the courage

To spread your wings and fly!

Indigenous Peoples Month

“Red Pendleton Blanket:

Earth and Sky”

By Toni Truesdale

The Elders play an important role in all societies.

Their wisdom from experience makes them invaluable teachers.

As Western values are constantly encroaching on

Indigenous communities,

Use of Native traditions is eroding;

Heritage languages are becoming endangered.

Youth are easily caught between the mainstream and tribal worlds.

All of our elderly are more socially isolated.

If we don’t learn to bring together

The generations in positive communication

Much cultural knowledge will be lost.

we are of the earth, belonging, as all living things


by Toni Truesdale

Baskets of women

Reflect nourishment

Physical as well as spiritual

Object to concept

Keeping sacred the spirit of everyday life;

Within the home

Utilitarian to universal

Dwelling to village

Community to cosmos

Each human passage

of the last 140 thousand years...

Birth to death

The finite to consummation

End to beginning...
