The buzz at the SnowSports Industries Show ending January 31 in Denver was about the Native American snowdance phenomena that restored snow to the Ski Meccas of Colorado, Utah and California in January. They also said, “we need more snowdances.” Some Native Elders who led them say that our giving Mother Earth gratitude for these snowblessings, whether large of small, and including Her in our hearts, especially on Valentine’s Day, can do wonders to inspire more snowfalls.
Given the amazing results of many Tribes of the Americas along with groups of diverse cultures performing New Year’s ceremonies to heal the oceans, it appears that our Earth Family has begun to fulfill the prophesy of what the tribes call “The Purification.” This unprecedented solidarity, inspired by the magnificent Azteca ceremonial dances in Puerto Vallarta (PV) Mexico, means Mother Earth won’t have to rebalance Herself so drastically, which spells a smoother ride for us around 2012! Tsunamis of gratitude to all those who sent prayers enhancing this ongoing global shift.

Here are some mind-blowing latest numbers and scientific and spiritual breakthroughs and to help determine which energy sources are authentically cost-effective, clean, and safe, to wisely merit investing our hard earned billions.

On November 1, our Native American Olympic Team Foundation (NAOTF) submitted to the UN its recommendations, including wisdom of Indigenous Elders, for the 2012 Rio+20 Conference, June 21-22.

I didn’t realize until our dear First Lady Betty Ford passed on this month, what an incomparable gift she has given Mother Earth and all Her children. Through Betty’s powerful example of taking her addiction to alcohol and (prescription) drugs out of the closet, educating the public, which diminished the stigma, and founding the Betty Ford Clinic, her gift goes way beyond helping transform the tortured lives of generations of Americans and World Citizens into fulfilling ones. Though sadly some, like pop star Amy Winehouse, could not be reached in time.
“A smattering of summer rain boosted firefighters battling the massive forest fire near Los Alamos nuclear reactor.” Other News sources said the blaze came 50 ft from the Laboratory that stores America’s largest supply of nuclear weapons, along with 30,000 drums of plutonium-contaminated waste stored above ground under fabric tarps, not far from mini fires breaking out within the complex. (Catching fire would have released a plume of deadly fallout.) 12,000 residents, many in tears, were allowed to return home for the first time in nearly a week, “honking their horns and waving to firefighters.”
Following Bolivia’s passage of their domestic law “Recognizing Mother Earth as a living entity and giving Her the Same Rights as Humans,” the United Nations held a dialogue via an interactive webcast on its “Harmony with Nature” Day, April 20, and it is now working on adopting these rights worldwide.
On May 11, CNN showed Japan’s nuclear electric officials on their knees apologizing and asking forgiveness from the Japanese people for misleading them about the safety of their nuclear reactors and destroying so many lives. While “We are sorry” helps, it can never return loved ones or a community’s original healthy quality of life after any nuclear-related projects.
On March 18 the “Japanese nuclear reactor chief WEPT as he finally admitted that their radiation leak is serious enough to kill people.” That was just days after telling Japanese citizens that “only those living within 12 miles of the nuclear plants needed to evacuate, while U.S. citizens within 50 miles were ordered out.”
Since love is the greatest force on Earth, here is a Tsunami of Love Prayer by Indigenous Elders that can phenomenally neutralize the destruction of the “500 mph wave in open seas from their biggest earthquake in history,” reported CNN. The tsunami not only is having devastating effects on millions of people and property, but Elders say the waves cause destruction of Marine life, from our fish, whales and dolphins all the way down to the bottom of the ocean. And right now there is unparalleled seismic activity, a shaking of Mother Earth, verifiable by seismic data centers, which is affecting all life on Earth.

This officially launches the worldwide Elders-led ocean healing ceremonies leading up to U.N.’s International Mother Earth Day on April 22, 2011, initiated by the Bolivians. World tribes regularly perform ceremonies where the drums call in ancestral and Nature spirits to powerfully send love and appreciation to Mother Earth’s oceans, but given our world eco crisis, the Bolivians saw we need to work cross-culturally.

Indians honored as Pioneers of Skiing this Vancouver Olympic “Tribal” Year. I am so proud that the top Ski and Snowboard Shows in America are leading an outreach to Native kids this Vancouver “Tribal” Olympic Year. Ski Legends, like Billy Kidd, Donna Weinbrecht, and Wayne Wong are getting the word out at the shows that underserved American Indian kids are warmly welcomed to participate in the Free and Discounted “Learn a Snow Sport” Programs in most snow states, along with mainstream youth.
Native Americans can take pride that Tennis icon Billie Jean King, a Cherokee, and Ted Kennedy, descendant of an honorary Iroquois Chief, did wonders to create equal opportunities for girls/women in sports and education in America and abroad. By enforcing the 1972 Title 1X Education Amendments Act, they actually helped restore those equitable traditional ways of the First Americans, which were interrupted in the last 150 years.
