My mom's good friend had several cockatoos and when they laid an egg and I hatched, they gave me to my mom and dad. Even the vet said I was the ugliest bird she'd ever seen since my bird mom plucked me when I was 3 months old! But see, the Ugly Duckling story is really true!!! hehehe

  Hello Picabo~
I hope you are having a wonderful day!! I think it's hot just about everywhere now. I think we are going to break the record for the most days over 90 today. I guess they have been keeping the record for about 120 years.
Seahawks training camp starts tomorrow and Taima the hawk is coming over for a meet and greet! Wish we could get up there to see him but mom has to work the whole weekend. Everyone is very excited for football to start again. It seems rather dull around here without it!
We are finishing up laundry and getting things ready for mom to go back to work tonight. It's not much fun but I do have some new toys to keep me occupied!
I hope your day is just fabulous!! Stay cool and enjoy it!

Happy Thursday !!! Did I throw you off with those questions ??? It was all in fun and games heehee !!! I did say I was going to surprise you...Raffi got every answer right !!! Congrats Raffi!

In honor of our U.S military...Today I'm going to talk about Navajo Code Talkers. They are from the Navajo nation...

In U.S history the things that happened to us Native Americans were tragic.Invaders and settlers took most of our lands and misunderstood our culture and killed us in the thousands.
Then during World War 2 ,the U.S goverment needed our Navajo Brothers to help.And though they suffered greatly from this same government our Navajo brothers proudly answered the call to duty.

Communication is very essential during any War.
Codes were often used,but broken.In 1942 a man named Philip Jonhston thought of a code that would be un breakable by the enemy.
A code based on the Navajo Language...

Be here for the conclusion tommorow...
Thank you for your votes

It's so humid here I put three dozen eggs in a bowl and steamed them. They should arrive to you shortly. They will still be hot!
ENJOY !!! Heehee !!!

Happy Tuesday !!!

The puter is fixed for now and my skin sis will be typing my blogs for me as I dictate to her while I'm sitting on my mommys shoulder preening my mommy's hair.

Thank you all for sending your heart felt prayers and get well wishes to my mommy. The surgery went well and was way better than her last surgery. Now she's resting her shoulder and making the skin sibs do everything.Heehee !!!

My blogs will be short and they will get to the point. I'm trying to squeeze in as much as I can for my campaine and for you...

Today I'm taking you to a very touchy subject. Something most hoomans don't like to think or talk about but it's real and part of our circle of life...

Traditionl Northern Cheyenne Burials.

In my tribe the color white is the color of death. We use white when our loved ones go to the other side.
Burial clothes are made with soft white doe hide and the moccasins are baby soft.
The reason for this is when we all go to the other side we walk into the light where its all white and bright.When we arrive in the consel of elders with MAH-HEY-YOH we arrive being born again. Thats the reason why we use soft buckhide as soft as a baby's skin.

Black is the color of power and red is the color of life that runs through our veins.

When a tribal member or loved one goes to the other side we bathe them for their journey and bless them. We mourn for four days and nights, Some of us may cut ourselfs to ease the pain of the loss and some of us cut our hair to ease the pain of our loss. In my tribe long hair is an honor to have especially with the men.

After four day's and nights of mounrning we bury our departed one sitting up so when they arrive in the counsel of elders they will be sitting in the sacred circle with them. Mah-Hey-Yoh will then judge the our departed who has moved on to the other side.

Our tribal medicine man and holy man will then pray for four day's and nights. After they recieve thier answer they will tell us which consel or departed ones will go into.All of our departed will forever be happy and not suffer. We will then have a celebration with lots of food for them.

This is part of my world that not too many people outside of my tribe know about...
I'm sharing this with you.
Remember death is part of life in our circle. Be good,Do good and never lie or hurt or harm anyone. Always listen to our creator and obey his words to us. If you listen closely will hear a soft gentle loving voice whispering in your ear. You will know it's the creator. And also always remember in time of war when we are forced to kill we will be held in high honor here in this world and up in the stars where we all will be. There's never an end to life.
There's always a new beginning...

Thank you for your votes
Love Panther

  Hello Picabo~
I hope you are having a fun day! I supervised the turtle tank cleaning and now I am sharing some oatmeal with mom. I have dried cranberries in mine and she has raisins in hers. I don't like raisins much.
The rest of our morning will be spent cleaning bathrooms and finishing up the laundry. Not very exciting but it has to be done. We finally got some rain back so I am enjoying that. Who knew I would end up missing rain???
I have my gifts for my elders and am going to drop them off at the Milonga page. I'll be there but will be silent cause mom will be sleeping!
Enjoy the day and I hope it's just perfect! Leaving a vote and a big hug just for you!
Love you ~ Sugar ♥

  Hi Beach Boy Picabo, from Elder Jenny
Tonight's Pow-Wow at the Milonga will be something really different and very exciting! I have been selected as a Tribal Elder, and I am honored, but I have no idea what to expect! Unfortunately we will not be able to stay long past the opening hellos and I love you's, that's about the time dad runs out of gas, I wish I could give a better reason, but as you age, you will understand better! We just love Chief Panther and his momma Staci & the Bigfoot tribe/family, especially his big bro Kevin who is an Army Airborne Ranger, the Army people stick together! Have a great Saturday, & give our love to all in your family, hope to see most of you tonight at the Milonga, I want a slice of fry bread and Custer Butt...

True love from Jenny, and my Tribal members

Happy TGIF !!!

Before I say anything I would like to introduce you to my second oldest brother Circling Eagle Bigfoot...He's the dancer on my profile picture. My mommy made everything he's wearing.
We all call him Eagle for short heehee !!!
Eagle is my second oldest skin bro. And on this picture he was only 7 years old. The elders in my family taught him to dance the right way.
He's a Northern Traditional dancer and being on the Powwow Trail all his life, he started winning in Powwow dance competitions all over the US.
He is also well known and respected throughout the Powwow circut and Native American land.

My mommy went to Bank of America in Norco and she saw a painting of him on the banks wall.
It said young Native American boy. My mommy contacted the artist Francis Frazier who took a picture of him dancing and she said she had been working on painting his picture for many years and his picture traveled all over the U.S with her...
Anyway my mommy wanted to buy the picture from Francis but she said it was sold to a customer who wanted it. BUMMMER !!!
She told my mommy she would have given it to her...

Let me get back on track now heehee !!!
I'm going to talk to you about Powwows.
There is Northern protocol and Southern protocol Powwows. My tribe is Northern so our powwows we go to are all Northern protocal Powwows...

We have a variety of dance catagories such as Northern Traditional, Northern grass dance, Men's Northern fancy dance...
The women have womens Northern traditional buck hide or cloth dresses, Jingle dress dance, and womens Northern Fancy shawl dresses...

Some powwows are traditional and social and some powwows are contest and pay off with big money to the winners...

At Powwows we eat lots of fry bread and Native American tacos and chili stew. At night we are still eating frybread with hot coffee
or hot cocoa.
Every Powwow we went to we always met lots of powwow buddy's who stays our buddy's for life.
Some Powwows last all weekend and some over night.
Being there is awesome and magical with lots of love between different tribes.
A powwow with different tribes are called intertribal...

Thank you for your votes
Love Panther

Tomorrow I will continue with the singers and drummers at Powwows

Happy Thursday !!!

Because of lack of time I have to make this blog short and to the point !!!

The Battle of little Big Horn... Custers last stand...

In late 1875 Cheyenne and Sioux Warriors were mad over the continued raids of Custer and his men going into our sacred lands and the black hills...

Our tribes gathered in Montana with great War Chiefs ready to fight for our tribes and our lands.
The following Spring two victories over the U.S calvary gave us strengh and spirit to fight on.

In the summer of 1876 was Custers last stand...
Custer and his men came to raid our camps and kill more of us.
Thinking there was only women, elders and children there they rode their horses into a trap !!!

As they approached what they thought was a camp with women, elders and children they got surrounded and out numbered by warriors from my tribe and the Sioux...

On that day only 60 warriors were killed and 262 men with Custer were killed in less than an hour.
What a time of victory it was for us !!!

History say's that Custer's body was found unmutilated and naked.
No thats not the truth...Custers body was never found !!! He was seen being killed. By our Warriors. But his body never found...
Some beleive that Custers body was put into a mass grave with his fallen men !!!
He dose not deserve a decent burial with honors and recognition.
Custer was by all means a coward and a cold blooded killer !!!

To this day the warriors have passed down from generation to generation. The sacred hat and clothing that belonged to Custer.
He was stripped naked when he died so the warriors could stake claim and victory !!! One of our tribe's are the keepers of the sacred hat...I can't tell you who because of the sacred vow of silence we made in those matters...

So the elders told us that's what really went down.Generations upon generations of our families have been told the real truth.
Trust me your hearing this first hand from real elders that were there and witnessed the battle. We are the real deal !!!
This is told the same way from generation to generation.

To this present day my tribe will go to the sight where we won victory over Custer and offer sage to our fallen warriors.
When it's quite we can hear the ghosts screaming out in the battle field and when we close our eyes the spirits of our fallen Warriors will take us with them on the battle feild and we can see things that went down that nobody outside of our tribes can see...

Like we all say History is a lie agreed upon. How do these so called historians know if they were not there ??? They just agree upon things because they don't know...They all guess at it and agree upon it.

I have not squawked to you in some time and am so sorry for the lack of squawks! I am in a bit of chaos right now because I am packing up my condo to move back in with my previous mom. When mom now originally adopted me, she made a promise to mom if anything changes, I would be returned. Things have changed with mom and are better now, so I can go home! The best thing is both mom are the best of friends, professional colleagues and only 15 minutes away, so I will still be able to see mom. I am hoping that mamma Judy will be able to set up a new blog for me and blog more often to my sweetbeak! Love and winghugs, Kookie (my original name) PS Will you attend the Milonga with me?

  Hello Picabo~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! It's still cooler here and it feels wonderful. We are suppose to get some rain later too! It feels more like what the Northwest should feel like.
We are getting chores done today since mom did not do much this last week! It's catch up time and I have to say it's pretty boring. I want to come out of my play cage but mom has to take Jennifer to work so I have to wait until she gets back! I don't know why she doesn't trust me to be out when she is gone!hehehe
Mom tried calling dad this morning but he didn't pick up. He'll call back later. She needs to tell him that our rent is going up nearly $200. He is going to be pretty upset but everywhere in town is the same. Mom and Ian checked out all the places around here online and most are even higher. We are still going to be $50 below what new renters have to pay. They are talking about rent control in Seattle so every other city is kicking up the rents before that happens here. It's sad since they finally got the $15 minimum wage in Seattle and now everyone is going to have to pay more for rent. Things will never get better for people if they keep raising how much everything costs!
I hope your day is just perfect and that you get to do lots of fun stuff!

Happy Humpday !!!

I had a change of dates for The Gathering of Elders PowWow...It will be on the milonga page on Saturday July 25th...Indian time heehee !!! I'll let you know what time when we get it set up.

Anyone who knows an elder or if you are an elder please go to the milonga page and leave the elders name and page number.

Also if any of you would like to adopt an elder or more please go to the milonga page and leave your name and page number and who you would like to adopt.

Because of lack of time I'm going to take you through a quick truth about the Custer and the 7th calvary battle. The blogs are kind of short but true.These are true accounts passed down from generation to generation of elders in my tribe and elders in my family who was actually there. NOT HISTORY BOOKS !!!

Eyewitness accounts of The battle of little BigHorn...

When the 7th calvary made their way to Native American land they came with one intent. Genecide ,wipe us out !!!
They would wait for the warriors to leave camp and go on hunting parties. Then Attack !!!

The Women,children and elders would always stay behind and wait.
Once they were left alone Custer and his army of killers would raid our camps with no warriors there to defend the women,children and elders.

Custer had no mercy on my tribe and family. Custer and the 7th calvary would rape and kill the women and torture them and the elders by skinning them alive and make lamp shades and tents from their skin.They would throw babies and children in the fire alive and laugh as they screamed in agony and they had the nerve to laugh at them while they went through this torture dying.

My great,great,great grandfather had told my family and tribe on how they could smell burning flesh for miles and miles away. By the time the warriors would come back home from their hunting parties the whole camp would be burned down to the ground and everyone was dead.

For many generations Custer was called a hero. Do you call that a hero ???

This is a heartfelt series I'm sharing with you and my mommy stops to cry while typing thses blogs for me as she remembers the truth that has been told to her and tribal and family members for generations.

When Custer and his army of cowards won a war it was called a victory. When any of the Native Americans won the war it was called a slaughter.

All this would lead to the Battle of Little Bighorn...

To be continued tomorrow...

Thank you for your heartfelt votes and listening to the voices of our elders...

Love Panther

I hope you are having a wonderful day. It's cooler and cloudy here and I'm loving it.
It's our weekend so mom took a nap when she got home this morning. I had my English Muffin in my night cage and played with a toys while she slept. She has had to go out a few times but she's home now and we are trying to figure out what to make for dinner. Anything with corn bread sounds good to me!
We are glad the parronts had a nice anniversary dinner! It sounds like that place would have great food! Is it more Spanish or Italian! We love Italian but Mexican is probably everyones favorite around here.
I hope your evening is just wonderful!

  Hi Picabo,

It's Oz. You can stay as long as you want "Too" Picabo. Yes, your breakfast today was delicious and I love playing games with you in the Pool. It's about 93 today but lets enjoy the Pool now because tonight it's gonna rain and it's going in the 80's the rest of the week. But that's hot also just not as hot as it's been here the last 3 - 4 days in the 90's & very humid. Let me go get some cool drinks for us. Maybe tonight we'll go to Rita's for some Water Ice, Ice Cream & Pretzels YUMMY! Here's a vote for you, Cutie.

Love & Winghugs,

I feel as hot as a chili !!! Heehee !!! It's hot and humid here...

Happy Tuesday !!!

We had a total of three blackouts...I hope that's all over with...We enjoyed the rain so much. It's clean and fresh and SO-CAL needed it !!!

Today I'm going to talk to you about the Gathering of elders...

Almost all Native American tribes love their elders...
On my rez we have a special day for our elders called the Gathering of elders. We do this once a year to honor and appreciate our elders.
On this special day we shower our elders with gifts,food and lot's of love.

Our elders are like diamonds to us and without them our traditional ways and culture would be gone forever. They tell us everything that happened generations ago so we can pass it on and it never get's lost.

If our tribe has an elder with no family we take them in and they spend the rest of their life with the family that takes them in.
We make sure they are happy,well cared for and loved.
We never send our elders to a retirement home as in some cultures they do that.

We never disrespect an elder and we never talk back. They deserve great respect and love and honor. We love them all !!!

Tomorrow I will be posting names of BC elders on my page.

Please adopt an elder and give me your name and their name. You will be able to hang out with them on The Gathering of elders day that will be on Friday the 24TH...

You may adopt a total of four elders per flock or bird and the same elder can also be adopted by different flocks...This is in no way a competition. It's all about our elders and the love we have for them.
If any of you know an elder or are an elder please give me the name so I can put you on my page tomorrow.
You must be 15 years old and up. We are going by bird years not hooman years heehee !!!

After all it's their day !!! Let's make it a special celebration for them !!!

Thank you for your votes
Love
Panther

I will try to get their pictures posted in my gallery !!!

Happy Monday buddy !!!

So sorry about the delay. We had another power outage that lasted all day,all night and almost all morning.We got slammed with rain and my backyard had three feet of water in it. We loved it !!!
Don't forget to fly by the KB to join in Sky and BB'S wedding celebration. There's lots of good food and fun !!!

Trick marriage continued...

Kiddo tells his brothers Cappy,Pearl and Silver to ride ahead of him so he can keep an eye on them.

Kiddo follows his brothers back to camp and he goes straight to Tall Bulls lodge. Kiddo presents Tall Bull with his gift. Tall Bull asks Kiddo to tell him about his gifts.
Kiddo says a pure white mustang is sacred. I'm bringing back four of them to you to complete the four directions.

But most of all the love they have for each other is pure. And the bond they have as a family is sacred.I rescued them and kept them together. Everything is sacred and pure...

Tall Bull smiles and say's you did good. You also rescued your brothers from our enemies the Crow Nation.You are brave and honorable...

You have my blessings to marry Sweet Pepper !!!

Kiddo invites Sweet Pepper over to eat and talk.
Sweet Pepper arrives not knowing whats going to happen.
Kiddo makes her a meal and he watches her eat it.
When she's finished Kiddo picks her up and kisses her.
He then carries her to the front door of his lodge and both their families and the whole tribe gives them their blessing..

Sweet Pepper asks Kiddo what's going on ???
Kiddo gently smiles at Sweet Pepper and say's we are married. I tricked you by making you a meal and you ate it !!!

Sweet Pepper say's a trick marriage ??? Kiddo hangs his head wondering how mad she is at him. But to his surprise Sweet Pepper

Happy Sunday !!! Our power finally came back on but I don't know for how long...We are expecting more rain today and Monday. Hopefully with no power outages. We love the rain and we need it...

Trick marriage continued...

As Kiddo walks in the crow camp it's quite and all his enemies are sleeping. Kiddo looks around and starts planning on a rescue plan for the white mustang family...
Kiddo prays and asks Mah -Hey-Yoh to guide him and help him. There are hundresds of Crows there and only one of him. Being the strong Brave Warrior he is he walks around the crow camp with pride.

Kiddo say's to himself I can't figure this out. There's so many of them and only one of me !!!
Suddenly Kiddo hears three small voices whispering Kiddo help !!!

Kiddo looks around and he finds his brothers Cappy, Pearl and Silver tied up to a wooden stake. Kiddo quickly runs over to them to let them go. Kiddo say's why are you three here taken prisoners by the Crow ??? Cappy tells Kiddo we followed you to help you... In our dreams we saw you getting eaten by the Crows!
We also saw you in your sleep holding on to your medicine pouch asking that you get home safely so you can marry Sweet Pepper. Kiddo asks did you say anything to Sweet Pepper ??? This is a trick wedding.All three brothers say no.

Kiddo say's I want you to distract the crows and take three of their fastest War Pony's. I will meet you on top of the mountain under the hidden tree.Stay there and wait for me and stay out of trouble !!!

Kiddo sits behind the corral where the white mustang family is trapped.Cappy,Pearl and Silver jump on three of the crows fastest war ponies and call the Crows out !!! The Crows start to chase the three brothers into the hills. Kiddo quickly jumps on the white mustangs son and he leads the mother and daughter out of the corrals.

After they are out of the crow camp Kiddo opens his medicine pouch and throws clear shining stones in his brothers direction. The stones turns into a big shield and puts protection around his brothers so they can make it home safely.

Trick marriage continued tomorrow and following Trick marriage will be Sky and BB's wedding tomarrow...

HAPPY TGIF DAY
mom was standing outside trying to find the chickadees today but didn't see them. instead a small wren bird was making quite a racket in front of mom. he sounded a lot like a cross between a locust and a rattlesnake. when mom glanced to the right of him , on the ground, she saw his mate and knew then that he was trying to distract mom from his babies who also must have just fledged. she thinks the mom was trying to feed the babies and keep them hidden in the shrub. since you never know what is watching you when outside mom made no effort to see the babies and came right into the house. we all know how observant birds are so never under estimate how observant all the other creatures living outside are. its how they manage to survive in the wild.

Happy TGIF !!! Trick marriage continued..

Kiddo whispers in his war pony's ear and his war pony knows where to take him.There is a heard of wild mustangs running.Their hooves are as loud as Thunder rumbling in the sky...
Kiddo rides in the herd and fly's like the wind !!!

Kiddo can see his target getting closer and he jumps on a pure white wild mustang...And brings him back to his camp. Kiddo gives the wild mustang something to eat and some water...

After that Kiddo prays and leaves an offering to Mah-Hey-Yoh...
He asks Mah-Hey-Yoh for a vision...
As Kiddo relaxes his tired body he falls asleep. He's riding again with the wild Mustangs.

He see's a young white wild mustang in his dreams. The young mustang say's to Kiddo you have my father but to make your circle complete you must come and rescue Me,My mother,and my sister...
The young mustang shows Kiddo in his dream the Crow camp...They are in the corral and the Crow Tribe wants to eat them !!!
Kiddo wakes up from his vision. Tired and weak from lack of food Kiddo's love for Sweet Pepper is so strong that he heads for the crow camp.

Kiddo ties the wild mustang to a hidden tree and leaves the wild mustang with his war pony...He gives them plenty of food and water and he speaks softly to them and tells them to stay where they are...

Kiddo smudges himself with Lightning struck cedar and prays for victory...

Kiddo walks alone into the forbidding Crow Camp where his enemies the Crow walk...

Trick Marriage to be continued tomorrow...

Thank you for your votes

Hello everyone !!! I have to make this blog short cause my mommy has to go some pre lab work done for her next shoulder surgery...

Trick marriage continued...

Kiddo wakes up with the sun...He prays and makes his offerings to the four directions...After that he pray's to Mah-Hey-Yoh to watch over Sweet Pepper and to keep her safe...

Kiddo jumps on his war pony and looks for what he laid eyes on the day before...
All the time he's thinking about his love Sweet Pepper and the day he will make her his wife...
Kiddo see's the herd of wild mustang their hooves sound like Thunder and he and his war pony joins them...

Mean while at home Kacey and Jenny confront their sister Sweet Pepper. They speak to her in woman's language and tell her the warrior Kiddo that you grew up with is on a quest. We don't know why...

Sweet Pepper looks at her sisters and asks is Kiddo going to be all right ??? Jenny say's why are you asking sister ??? Kacey say's I think she loves him but won't say.Sweet Pepper blushes and tells her sisters to keep a sisters secret...
Nobody can know this it's not proper for a woman to be forward with a warrior... She say's yes I do love Kiddo !!!
But he has not tried to court me so we can be married...Kacey and Jenny tell Sweet Pepper say it's Kiddos loss if he dose not make you his wife.
You are a very strong warrior woman and very beautiful at that!

  Hi sweet bucket head, from Jenny & Angel Christy
My dad's check-up went surprisingly well yesterday, all his numbers were well within tolerable limits, and he is maintaining a lower weight, even our nurse was impressed, and she should be, he works so hard to feel better and live longer, he says that is all for me and LaLo! Our dad moves a lot slower these days, but one of the things he still loves and enjoys, is making and sending free bird toys for our friends, he is working on six more boxes for some of our dearest friends! Our family room floor looks like a warehouse of boxes! We have really nasty weather headed our way, I think our aunt Denise & RaneBeau are included, and it will eventually make it's way over to Joliet and SweetPepper's home! Needless to say, we are staying home today! Have a great throwback Thursday, remember the past with reverence, give our love to all in your happy home, stay dry and be safe dear friends, and give our love to all in your happy home, see ya tomorrow...

Forever love from Jenny, Angel Christy, & our Dallas family

  Hi Picabo & Squeaky
i can't believe i am 25 years old today.
thankyou so much for the hatchday wishes. i had a very happy day. mom entertained me vacuuming all day. she couldn't get her hose attachment to work and it took her twice as long to vacuum. finally she noticed the hose was clogged and took it apart and realized she hadn't removed the extra hose attachment from the hose and it was blocking everything. i am a good girl and even after that i still don't say any bad words but i laugh when mom says them. i hope you will join me and have some of this scrumptious hatchday cake that the famous dragon chef Lizzie made. all those candles are sure making a big blaze so don't get too close until i blow them out.

  Hello Picabo~
I hope are having a wonderful day! I figured you guys were having internet problems since it's that time of year! Don't worry about blogging because I know you will when you can. I have not been very good about it lately but that's just because things got busy and mom ran out of time!
Pavoratti is probably just defending his cage! Lots of us do it so it's not something to worry about. I am molting and very cranky and have bitten mom twice this week. Mom never gets upset about it cause she knows when you have a bird these things are going to happen. It took me 3 months of living here before I decided everyone was okay and that I would spend time with them. Glad to hear he is eating well!
I certainly have a healthy appetite also!hehehehe
Back to school is in full swing here even though the kids have only been out for 2 weeks. Mom hates this time of year because most of the stuff is small and the area tends to get very messy very quickly! Mom was off last night and tonight too and asked the mangers to please make sure it stay neat! She spend 11 hours over 2 days in that department making sure everything was priced correctly and in it's proper place. They acted like they didn't understand so mom told them the whole area can get out of control quickly so it need to be checked a few times a day! Hopefully it will not be a mess when she gets back on Thursday night!
Enjoy the day and I do hope it's perfect. It cooled way down here and now feels more normal. It's going to get hot again over the weekend but we do have our portable A/C so we'll be fine!

  Hey Picabo and Squeaky
Don't worry about it. I know how it is to have puter or internet problems !!! My mommy get's that a lot !!! I'm just happy to hear from you.I was worried about you...

Happy Humpday !!!

Today I am taking you to Northern Cheyenne trick weddings...
A trick wedding is when a good and well known warrior from a good family falls in love with a woman...
The woman may not be interested in him so to save face in our tribe he will get blessings from her father and family to marry her...

Because of our strict tribal protocol a Northern Cheyenne woman from a good family may not be too forward with a warrior unless they are in courtship or already have a planned wedding.

But first the warrior must go out into the mountains alone and find something sacred and pure to present to his medicine man for blessings to marry his woman.
When he receives his blessings from the medicine man he will get one of the dresses that the belongs to the woman he loves and take it to the medicine man so the warrior and his wife to be will already have exchanged scents with each other...

Remember this is a trick wedding so she dose not know what he's planning.

There was a strong handsome warrior with many honors and from a good family named Kiddo...
He watched A beautiful girl named Sweet Pepper grow into a woman.

Kiddo loved this woman so much that he could not even think straight...
When he would go hunting he could not even shoot his arrow straight cause all he think of was Sweet Pepper...
His brothers Cappy and Pearl and Silver would always tease him.
They said laughing at him in their man's language that your going crazy over this woman !!!
Cappy said to Kiddo this woman does not even look at you how can she be interested ???
Kiddo was determined to win her...Kiddo tells his brothers that her father and family has given me their blessings...
Now I have to go to the mountains by myself and find something pure and sacred to present to our medicine man Tall Bull so I can receive my blessings from him...

As Kiddo prepares for his journey Tall Bull smudges Kiddo with the smoke from sage and gives Kiddo a medicine pouch.
Tall Bull tells Kiddo you must not open this pouch. You will know when it's needed...

Kiddo jumps on his war pony and rides off by himself into the mountains...

Kiddo rides for four days and four nights trying to figure out what is sacred and pure out here in the mountains.
Kiddo watches the wild mustangs run by him and figures it out!
Kiddo sets up camp for the night and prays to Mah-Hey-Yoh...

Kiddo prepares for what he has to do the next day...He is a strong determined warrior and won't stop until he wins her wing in marriage...

Trick wedding to be continued tomarrow...

What does Kiddo find that's sacred and pure to bring back to the medicine man ???

  Hello Picobo~
I hope you are having a wonderful day!! Today is my 6th BC anniversary! 6 years ago mom and I went looking for pictures of Amazons and discovered the BC! They were having Camp Birdie and I joined! It's been a wonderful 6 year all because I have made so many awesome friends! Sure do miss Camp Birdie though! It was so much fun!
There was a fire on South Hill last night. It's about 4 miles from me. It was all brush but there was wind and they were afraid that the embers might catch some houses on fire. They were getting ready to evacuate but they got it under control. They are using bulldozers to plow it all under so they won't have to worry about flare ups. Mom could smell it at work be we can't smell it up here. I think the wind is blowing the other way so that saved me from the stink! I'm just glad no houses burned down and not one was hurt and that I didn't have to smell the stink!!
Enjoy the evening and I hope it's perfect!

  Hey Picabo
Is it hot enough for you yet ??? Heehee !!!

Today I'm going to tell you the real truth about Northern Cheyenne marriages...
Our creator is the same as all creators... Marriages are blessed by our creator and is the same creator that almost every religion worships and praises...We all have our own way and our own names for god...We call him Mah-Hey-Yoh and other religions call our creator Heavenly Father etc.

Generations ago as the Elders told me we were considered to be savages and Pagans. None of that is true !!! We were a peace loving tribe and tried to avoid war...The warriors went through a lot to get married such as 4 days of fasting and going to a sweat lodge ,getting blessings from the tribe and family and going out in the wilderness for 4 days and nights and receiving a vision...

The women would also prepare for their weddings by going through a sweat and then exchanging scents from the warrior they were going to marry...

We did not have marriage licences and all the paper work. A real warrior doesn't need those things in our tribe. It'a all about the heart and blessings from our creator.

If you think about it the invaders came here to Indian country with guns and intent to kill...We never knew what a gun was until they brought them here.
Who's the real savages ???
And how can a piece of paper called a marriage licence be called sacred ???
Obeying God and receiving his blessings and working hard and suffering to get married is real. It's not a piece of paper.
Christians who I know agree that there was never a piece of paper that would bind a couple in marriage...

Even the trick marriage's were blessed and our Warriors did everything straight from the heart. There was never no lies...

All marriages were held in high honor and there was never a divorce or separation.
With that being said I hope you all understand our tribes ways...

Tomorrow I will be taking you to a Trick Marriage.
After that Sky and BB will be having a Traditional Northern Cheyenne wedding...

Thank you for your votes

  Hi ya Picabo~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! It's been way cooler here the past few days and we even got some rain! I was missing it believe it or not!
Last week was so busy! I did not get much time on BC hence my absence from your page!
Dad was home for a few days last week. He was still working but it was all local deliveries and he got to come home in the evenings. There always seems to be too much running around when dad is home.
I have been molting so I have been a bit cranky lately. I bit mom a couple of times but there wasn't too much blood. She understands! I'm just cranky! I am still the cute, adorable, sweet Amazon the mom knows and loves!hehehehe
Back to school is in full swing at mom's store! The kids have only been out for 2 weeks so I doubt any of them are ready to look at back to school stuff yet! Mom says they do have really cute lunch kits and backpacks this year.
I hope all is well at your nest and that you will have a wonderful day!

Happy Monday !!!
Northern Cheyenne Courtship continued...
As I have explained to you before this is not research. The elders in my family and tribe have passed down everything I tell from generation to generation. I tell you how it was told to me. The history books don't even know the real truth of my tribe...How could they ??? They never lived it !!!

Raffi finds a beautiful place in our mountains. He once again smudges the Cedar branch and his knife...
Then he starts to sing beautiful songs to Cydney in hope she will hear them in her dreams...

He thinks of Cydney and starts to carve the Cedar branch. Singing and thinking of Cydney the whole time...
Raffi let's Mah-Hey-Yoh guide his talons as he carves.
When he's finished he see's a beautiful image of Cydney carved into a courting flute.
He puts his courting flute in his medicine bag and heads back home on his pony.

When he gets home Uncle Tall Bull is waiting for Raffi outside of his lodge. He welcomes Raffi back home and say's Raffi you must not ever let anyone see your courting flute.It's for you only !!! Other wise another man can steal Cydney away from you with one song.
You must sit outside of Cydneys lodge when shes alone and play one song to her. After that you must bury your flute in a sacred place where no one can ever find it.And when you go to the next world when you get old you must bury it with you. You will know when the time is coming. Now go get your woman !!!

Raffi waits for Cydneys family to leave the lodge knowing he can play only one song for her so he starts to play his flute for Cydney.
The music is beautiful and it seems like time stood still. When Raffi is finished he puts his flute away and sit's outside of Cydneys lodge waiting for her...

Cydney comes out and looks Raffi in the eyes.She smiles shyly and say's Raffi in my dreams I saw what you did to win me. You risked your life and your love is so strong for me you are a strong mighty warrior with honor...You suffered and prayed and fought for me....Your love is forever and so is mines...
You are the man of my dreams !!!
Cydney ties an eagle feather on Raffi's head...
Raffi let's out a victory cry and helps Cydney get on his pony...
Cydney say's yes Raffi I will marry you !!! I'm so proud to become your wife !!! Raffi and Cydney ride off to tell the tribe they are getting married !!!

This courtship is real and has been practiced by all the happily married elders in my tribe. Did you know that almost all Northern Cheyenne marriages never had to face a breakup or divorce.
Honor your marriage and you will be blessed with a long happy life together...

Thank you for your votes
Love Panther

Happy Sunday !!!
Northern Cheyenne Courtship continued...

Uncle Tall Bull receives the lightning struck Cedar branch and tell's Raffi I want you to get the sharpest object you can find and
bring it to me...

Raffi goes to his family lodge and finds his brothers Picabo and Jedi...He tells them he has to find a sharp object...
Picabo hands Raffi a sharp buffalo bone knife and asks why do you need this big brother ??? Jedi say's let me guess... It's for something to do with Cydney !!! Raffi's brothers tease him as he walks out of his family lodge and goes to Tall Bulls lodge...
Tall Bull brings Raffi in and he smudges the knife and cedar branch with the smoke from sage.

He tells Raffi go find the most beautiful place in our mountains and bring these with you. You must pray and make offerings for what you must do. Raffi ask's his Uncle what must I do ???
Uncle Tall Bull say's Mah-Hey-yoh will give you a vision.

Raffi packs his medicine bag with the knife,the cedar branch, and sage...Off he goes to the most beautiful place in their mountains he can find !!!

Raffi travels for 4 days and 4 nights completing the four directions...He finds a beautiful place in the mountains...
He builds a fire and prays for a vision.In the fourth hour Raffi wakes up happy. He had his vision and knows what to do !!!

Raffi finds a beautiful tranquil spot by the river and follows his vision !!!

Cheyenne Courtship conclusion continues tomorrow...

  Hey Picabo
My mommy is in her bedroom blogging for me today. My daddy and Uncle are still going at it remodeling the kitchen and she wants to stay out of the cross fire heehee !!!

Happy Saturday !!!

The Courtship continues...

As Raffi get's near the river he hears thunder...Raffi stops and leaves a offering of sage for Nonoma (The Thunder bird spirit).
Raffi asks Nonoma to protect him while he is on his Quest...

As Raffi approaches the river he leaves a sage offering to the four directions and asks them for guidance.
Then he prays to Mah-Hey-Yoh...And asks him to open Cydneys heart to him and for her to love him.
When Raffi gets to the river he leaves a sage offering to Mehne the water monster in hope she will let him cross her river.
As Raffi rides his pony into the river he hears a big splash !!!
Mehne sticks her head out of the river with red glowing eyes and says you cannot cross my river...I'll eat you !!! Raffi says please may I cross it I gave you an offering... Mehne says no !!!

Raffi sits by the river for a few minutes then he knows he must cross this river in order to win Cydney...
As Raffi steps into the river Mehne jumps out of the water and grabs Raffi with her large mouth...
She takes him under the water !!!
Raffi reaches for his war staff and he can't find it. He left it on the bank of the river.
Raffi fights and wrestles with the river monster and keeps away from her mouth.
Suddenly Mehne tosses Raffi in the air and opens her mouth so she can catch and swallow him.
Before she can swallow Raffi a strong wind comes and Nonoma the Thunder bird spirit appears flapping his wings !!!
Nonoma's wings are so strong and powerful that Raffi is blown back to the banks of the river... He grabs his war staff and throws it at Mehne...The water in the river bubbles and Mehne disappears...

Nonoma say's Raffi you didn't forget to give me an offering and you prayed and showed me respect. You are a strong and honorable brave warrior with good character. I will always watch over you in battle... Now cross the river...

Raffi rides his pony across the river and goes to the mountain of lightning struck cedar...
The sweet smell blows all over with the wind. Raffi finds the biggest branch of lightning struck cedar and he thanks the four directions for their guidance.And He thanks the Cedar trees for letting him take a branch...

Raffi rides his war pony across the river and goes back home...
He brings Uncle Tall Bull the lightning struck cedar branch.
Uncle Tall Bull says good nephew you made it back heehee...

  Hi Picabo and Scion
Don’t think of her as gone away
Her journey’s just begun
Life holds so many facets
This earth is only one.
Just think of her as resting
From the sorrows and the tears
In a place of warmth and comfort
Where there are no days and years
Think how she must be wishing
That we could know today
How nothing but our sadness
Can really pass away
And think of her as living
In the hearts of those she touched
For nothing loved is lost
And she was loved so much
Angel Chi ♥ chi

Come visit me, Gus~Playing with my favorite paper. & Chi chi RIP my sweet girl..

  Hey Picabo
My mommy's behind !!!!

Here's part two of Northern Cheyenne Courtship...

Raffi walks to his Uncle Tall Bulls lodge. He calls out Uncle Tall Bull please come out I need to talk to you !!!
Uncle Tall Bull comes out of his lodge and asks Raffi why are you so upset nephew ??? Raffi tells Uncle Tall Bull I have blessing's from Cydneys father Sam and her family to marry her.But she thinks highly of herself and I don't know how to get into her heart and dreams !!! Uncle Tall Bull tells Raffi you must go to the other side of the lake by your self and climb up the sacred mountain and get one big branch of lightning struck cedar...
Raffi says but Uncle there are river monsters in the river !!!
Uncle Tall Bull says I know there is but I know you can conquer them !!! You must leave at dawn with this sacred war staff on your pony and come back with a large branch of lightning struck cedar...When you come back home you must bring the cedar stick to me... Raffi goes to his lodge and Jedi and Picabo are waiting for him...They ask Raffi how did it go big brother.Raffi say's I got blessings from Cydneys father and family to marry her.Now I have to go to the sacred mountain across the river by myself and get a big lightning struck cedar branch for Uncle Tall Bull..Jedi and Picabo say Raffi you will have to fight that river monster and she may eat you !!! Raffi say's I know...Jedi and Picabo laugh and say all this for one woman are you crazy ??? Raffi says I'm crazy over her !!!
The next morning Raffi jumps on his pony with his War Staff and rides to the sacred mountain...

Courtship to be continued...

Thank you for your votes
Love Panther

  Oz took Everybirdie over to Apache & Snowflake and Jedi & Cheyenne's Home for the day. It's a beautiful day & tomorrow & Sun. it's going to get hotter. So we'll hang out here then. She's hoping Everybirdie can stay until Monday morning. So everyone can have a nice long weekend here. Hey, whoever wants to stay longer, you can as long as you want "Too". We have plenty of room between my home & my Brother & Sister's home. Mom made a huge Pot of a Rump Roast with Carrots, Potatoes & String Beans. There's bread if anyone wants to soak up the gravy. We have Ice Cream, Pretzels & Chips for later. Everybirdie goes back to Oz's for dinner & will hang out there for the rest of their stay. Of course, Mom invites the rest of her Family - Apache, Snowflake, Busy, Cheyenne, Jedi & Jet. She has Chicken Nuggets & French Fries for the Little Ones. Here's a vote for Everybirdie.

Love & Winghugs,
Oz (Your Pink Friend)
P.S. Yes, Cookie Mom has more Jelly Donuts for you in her Freezer LOL!
