  3. The question I have is regarding the Cree women. Are the Cree women allowed tradionallt to play and sing using the small one sided skin drum? I know that the Cree Big Drun Society only allows the men to use and play the big drum. Aho, Chief Guanikeyu Torres, Jatibonicu Taino


  4. I’m looking for guidance on how to deal with negative outside influences from affecting my home fire. Is there something I can be doing to protect my family from hurtful, pitiful people attacking? I know fighting back is not the way then I would be behaving no better. We live traditional lives and have been walking the Red Road for 6 years now. Please help.

  7. Please help me, last night I dreamed that there had been a dispute between out neighbor and myself, I looked out the window and all the homes were gone except for mine. outside there was a tent type thing set up by my home. Next thing I knew I was in my home and a tree had come partially thru the home and there were black spiders everywhere. All around me were Native Americans of all ages both men and women. They kept telling me that I was Cree or Sioux. they showed me these 4 hand made pieces each about 2 foot long telling me that each one belonged to one of my grandparents. These people made me feel very safe. One older man was telling me where my ancestors were laid. Then he handed me this key like piece of something and has me lay it in my hand and close my hands as in prayer together. This object glowed the most beautiful green that I have ever seen. He told me that I had been chosen for something very special. Please help me to understand this. I have always been told that I was Cherokee and that is where my middle name came from. Please help me.
