I've learned alot, not only from life but from my educational journey at Haskell Indian Nations University. I have been burying my nose into books becuase they are helpful to me. I learned from Luci Tapahonso’s hardships to cope with the death of her grandchild. Her experience “spoke to me”, I understood how it feels to want to hang onto something so precious becuase it is too hard to let go. "The Shawl" by Louise Erdrich was an awakening, it was almost as if the whole entire story was...

MY MEDICINE, my life (part 4)

My burden that day was only one of many; the burden was that I would have to decide for someone else’s life. I couldn’t handle it anymore. I didn’t answer the doctors, I told my mother and my mother-in-law the news. So, my mother, feeling my pain decided to go outside and ask the creator for mercy. Our people believe that the creator is in everything, that sometimes a tree or a bird can help you, because it is as much a part of the Creator as it is a tree or bird. My mother ran outside crying for...

MY MEDICINE, MY life (part 3)

Before I went into surgery, I remember asking a nurse whether my son was ok, and than I asked about my daughter. There was another nurse with her, they both looked at each other, than she grabbed my hand and started crying. “I’m sorry honey, she’s gone”, I will never forget the look on her face as she told me this. I wailed out. I didn’t want to live anymore. No mother wants anything to happen to her child, not even a scratch. But mine was gone, I couldn’t hold her, I would never get to see her...

MY MEDICINE, My life(part 2)

I felt a breeze blow across my face, a nice August breeze. I listened and I could hear birds, there were bee’s buzzing about the empty soda cans, and the sky was clear and blue. The sun was just above the horizon, the children were playing, the adults were visiting and from every camp you could hear all the families just being together and laughing. Life was beautiful, what more could one ask for. We had been blessed with the ways of our people, the life that we lived and blessed with the people...

MY MEDICINE, My Life and the blessings Part 1

Posted 11-29-2007 at 01:53 AM by woggs
"It is the story of all life that is holy and it is good to tell, and for us two-leggeds sharing in it with the four leggeds and the wings of the air and all the green things; for these are children of one mother and their father is one spirit”( Black Elk Speaks p.1).
When Black Elk tells his story I believe he is reminding us at that in every story there is something holy, and good to be exchanged. From every person’s story we all learn a little bit more about how to be a good person...
