“We are the People…” is the first poem we had ever written. It was given by Spirit on the Mountain of Manataka. It tells of our past, our present and future. The poem ends with a prophesy – for all that was will be again.
We are the People of the Longhouse

We are Spirits Dancing
Upon our Mother Earth.
Her heart the Drum is beating.
We are Her Children.
We are the Warriors.
We follow the Sacred Path.We are the People of the Longhouse.
The Four Winds know us.
Trees, birds and animals teach us.
Sun and Moon share visions with us.
The Stone people and waters are we.
They all instruct our path to see.We are the People of the Longhouse,
Keepers of the Sacred Manataka
The Great Gathering Place,
Place of Peace for all who make pilgrimage
To celebrate the Secrets of Grace.We are the People of the Longhouse.
We are Arapaho, Caddo, Pueblo, Navaho,
Seminole Winnebago, and Eskimo.
We are Apache, Hopi, Cree, Pawnee, Santee, Lumbee,
Shawnee, Zuni, Miami, and Cherokee.
We are Ojibwa, Oneida, Seneca, Chippewa, Omaha,
Ottawa, Iowa and Kiowa.
We are Quapaw, Chickasaw, Choctaw, Witchita,
Kaw, and Catabaw.
We are Dakota, Lakota, and Kituwah.
We are Creek, Blackfeet, Comanche, Abenaki, Yuchi,
Lenape, Shoshone and Potawatomi.
We are Ute, Paiute, Aleuts, Inuit; Illinois and Iroquois.
We are Brule, Hunkpapa and Yankton Sioux;
Bannock, Wyandot, Mohawk, Sac and Fox, and Kickapoo.
Cheyenne, Osage, and Yamasee.

We are them and they are we.

In the Valley of Manataka,
600 nations join hands in the Circle.
The Spirit of Peace floats on air.
Black, yellow and white man joins the miracle.
Red man shows the way there.

Rainbow Woman lives at Manataka.
Sister to White Buffalo Calf Woman,
She sleeps in the deep of Mother Earth.
Yet, she is the sign in the sky to show the way,
Her colors are bright; to remind us of Grace as we pray.

We are the People of the Longhouse;
The sacred fire of seven woods lifts our prayers on smoke.
The Great Creator hears us.
And, the Sacred Mountain awoke.

Shaking and trembling from the sleep.
The mountain rumbles, big houses crumble
Pushing hot waters from the deep
People are in fear and some run like the deer
But we, the People of the Longhouse,
are humble and kneel to hear.

Great Creator speaks for Mother Earth.
“I want Manataka back”
The turn of the medicine wheel has come.
The hot springs flow with one great crack,
Sacred waters flow and we sing with the drum.

Great clouds of vapors emerge once more.
Colorful rainbows leap from the mists.
We walk the white cloud across the valley floor.
There is only peace; and no shaking fists —
The spirit of Manataka has arisen once more.

The Valley has changed yet it is the same.
There are no buildings to mar its face.
Metal noise replaced with amazing grace.
The Place of Peace – Manataka is its name.
We forgive those who took Manataka away;
and hid the waters for many days.

We come again for the healing breath of Nowasalon,
They come for the healing herbs and healing red clay;
We join hands and sing to the drum until dawn;
They come for the healing crystal and to pray.

To give much thanks to the Creator above,
We the People of the Longhouse ask blessing.
He gives us beauty, everlasting peace, and love.
So be it, we gather again to dance and sing.

Have you ever found yourself wondering about living in the eternal NOW and what that means to you?

In my lifetime I have always strived to be in the here and now, not the past or the future, however, I constantly find myself missing much of the valuable information I have gained in the past and end up stuck and unable to move forward and help other people to do the same. I am a counsellor, advocate and trainer of people, and I am constantly having to shift from consciously knowing what experiences I have had in my life that relate to what it is that my clients are going through in order to be effective and responsible with what I do and who I am as a human being.
There are many times in my life that I have wondered about my past and what the reasons were for me having to go through all of the difficult experiences I have gone through in order to arrive in this moment today. In the past I used blame, shame, guilt, pain, and ignorance to cover my reality so that I could maintain what I believed to be my “personal safety“ . This kept me stuck in the muck of my life in order to have situations that were familiar to deal with. When I knew how to deal with all of the negativity, it was challenging, and profoundly simple to stay in the same place. I really did not like me or value me in any way. Today I like who I am, I also treasure many of the experiences I have had in my life, however, there are certainly parts of my life that I have dealt with and I have decided to move beyond. take ownership of my creation of them, and also own the means that I needed to work through the personal changes that have taken place because of the experiences. Amazingly, I have always known that there was a valuable reason for me to have gone through these experiences, and without knowing any different I just put it down to self growth, the evolution of my soul and the unveiling of my life purpose. I had been asking what the reason was once again, and when you ask the question, the teacher appears.
My new teacher appeared a few days ago when I met with a wonderful young man who reminded me just how important it is to bring forward the memories from the past, and to relate these memories to where I have moved to today.

Although we are all unique human beings there are times that it sure is important to share experiences with another human being, whether they are positive or negative, in order for us all to benefit and move into the realm of being the real, loving, caring and compassionate people that we are today!
Thank you to all of my teachers in the University of Life that I attend every second of every day.

Peace, love, light and blessings!

“By accepting where you have come from in the past – and by realizing how you have arrived in the present – and by visualizing who you are becoming in the future – creates a current of energy that will carry towards the life you want for yourself because then you are no longer standing in the way of your dreams.”

What we are today is a result of our own past actions;
What ever we wish to be in the future depends on our present actions;
Decide how you want to act now.

We are responsible for what we are, whatever we wish ourselves to be.
We have the power to make ourselves.

It is easy to become overwhelmed with the enormity and vastness of oneness, the joy and pain of all are present. Instead let us float and soar on our tributary of loving connection in this moment. Enable our Being to move slowly into the vastness absorbing knowledge and maturity as we go.
