It blew all of my preconceived notions about the Indian Culture as a whole ( which I've gotten from old movies and old books).
Hearing it from the American Indians changed everything. Cristina Causing Hi, I really enjoyed reading your site, its great to see such good content and illustrations.
The Powhatan Nation was instrumental in saving my great grandfather's life (Robert Pollard Holmes)and once he joined the settlement, he married my great grandmother who was of either the Cherokee or Pamunkey/Mattaponi tribes. I am cherokee indian and my grandfather Walter Kenova Bradby use to be Chief before he passed away. We visited family in Front Royal; Tappahanock/Rappahanock; Grand Dad's Brother married Grand Mother's Sister; Dad's double-first cousin, Augustine Willis married Mom's Aunt, Viola Clarke.
If anyone knows the Holmes name, please contact me via e-mail. Mother: Pearl Borum Willis,(daughter-Ferdinand Borum & Pearl Mae Clark(e)Borum, Grand-daughter of Hester "Grandma Easter" Hobday & Elias Clarke.
I can say I feel really proud to be a part of such a great heritage. Barbee who was born between the years 1888 to 1903.
I have met so many new friends on the long 2 year journey of self discovery and I would like to give thanks to all that have assisted!!! betty I found out something very recently that I found to be appauling and, that was a group of people out of Madison, Wisconsin are putting on a 3 day excursion where they are charging people to learn about what they have termed as Shamanism; They will be putting on this workshop in Dodgeville Wiscosin at some retreat center Now if you thought that was bad it gets worse on this excursion they will be charging people for Sweats, Vision Questing and, a wide variety of other various medicine practices; In addition, the dollar amount that they are charging is outrageous it is 5 plus dollars; First of all The importance of Medicine Practices Native American or, Otherwise should not be taken lightly and, it should not be cheapend by a price tag, nor should it be sold ever for any reason; Secondly These practices are the birth-rites of the indiginous people of this and, other countries and, their cultural heritage should be treated with sacredness and, respect and, those who disrespect it by doing what these people are doing should have to pay some kind of pennance; Last but, not Least, these people have little to no real education on the subjects in which they are teaching on which makes them poor teachers and, frauds; If these people truly had wished to learn they should have obviously taken a very different approach with the understanding that, there is no guarntee that the indiginous people of anykind of Medicine Practices would teach them or, would not teach them anything at all I'm sure you can all understand now why i am angry!
remember that our heritage is sacred and unique- not that many people can honestly say that their veins carry our blood. I know very little at this point but would be very appreciative af any help that you can provide.
