I am currently working with the Lakota people to bring one of their traditional stories to life. We are focused on bringing clarity to the past, attention to the present and hope for the future through the creation of a feature film that depicts the Lakota people from their perspective. Our intention is to do the film as a ceremony. It is a prayer for the people.
Welcome to World ViewZ. We are all one. One People. Earth Walking People. We share the gifts of Mother Earth with all the people, not just the Earth Walking People. So many indigenous people understand this at a visceral level. So many city dwellers have forgotten. I am glad to read that you are working on a film that hopefully honors and teaches the Lakota way of seeing the world. My the Lokota Ancestor Spirits bless you in your endeavor.
Be a blessing.
Thanks for the invite Mark, its good to hear of the work you are doing with the Lakota peoples. For a few years (until hubby suffered a bad accident and recevied brain injury) we used to organise Native American Awareness weekends here in Britain to get people to understand the plight of the Native peoples and the money raised we sent to the Cheyenne River Reservations, especially the Red Scaffold School and the nurses station, one year ewe sent food parcels for the Elders Christmas boxes. So it is good to hear of someone doing good things with these wonderful people.
Look forward to chatting more with you. Many BLessings my friend. Whitefeather xxx
