Aunt Amy saw me in a pet store when I was a baby bird. My momma bird nipped the tip of my beak off and the owners were going to euthanize me. Aunt Amy spoke up and wanted me and they sold me for $20 (plus additional for the cage) Aunt Amy passed away this spring and had her will specify that I go to the Stark Flock. Here I am!.

  HI MOGGIE!!!
Hey the fister's are doing great...Enjoying being by the window and talking to the outside birds...What did you try to dive bomb Dad?...Pecked a V4U...First I would like to thank every birdie who pecks a vote for me...Today the 2nd day of my campaign will be taking you on a shopping trip ..When visiting the Poconos it is almost a must for you to take a day trip to the Crossings Premium Outlets, Tannersville, Pa just of route 80...This outlet has 100 stores to shop in..It is fun to go into the stores and check out the sales...A nice list of food places to get something to eat, sit and relax..Some of those stores are Bakery, Soft pretzels, Desserts, Log Cabin Bar & Grill, Magic Wok, Mr.Deli, Romano's Pizzeria & Treat Zone...Also some more not mentioned..If you get tired shopping there you can go down the road a bit and stop at the American Candle Factory where you can purchase almost any kind of candle you would ever want...Some days if you are lucky that particular one you will be able to watch one of the candle makers carving a design on one that was just made...Besides it being a candle shop you can find beautiful gifts for all occasions..It seems like you never come to the end of rooms that have so much to look at...One rooms just has endless barrels of all kind of candy, treats that you purchase by the pound or however much you would want to buy..That same room has ice cream, soda and other treats you can buy to eat while you are looking around..One thing I can tell you when Mom & Dad go it always seems one goes off in one direction and other in another direction...After finishing there you can then venture down the road a little more and stop at the Pocono Cheesecake Factory..Again certain days you can watch them making the cheesecake..To many people they make the trip to the Poconos just to purchase the cheesecake...It is very good but rich and you can only eat a small piece..But they have many flavors such as, blueberry, strawberry, chocolate, etc...This cheesecake has no crust on the bottom...But yummy!!!!...Now if you still would like to do something else while you are here stop by the beautiful Mt.Airy Casino and try out your luck..Might just hit the jackpot on one of their machines..If you are not in the mood for playing the machines why not take in one of their great shows...You may find that you like the Casino and Resort and would like to book a stay for another time perhaps in the fall when the foliage is beautiful...They also have a golf course and many other things of interest to do...I have posted a picture of Mt.Airy Casino & Resort in my photo gallery if interested to see what it looks like on the outside...I will try and post a few more in my gallery also...Hope this campaign blog will be of some interest..This certainly is only a very small amount of things of interest in the Poconos..So Tomorrow I will take you to another attraction here...Hope you are having a great Sunday...Thank you all again for stopping by..Lots of bir

TGIF!!! I would like to thank each and everyone of you for your votes and support. What an awesome month we had. Time sure does fly by when we have fun.Thank you auntie Mary,Auntie Teri and auntie Gail for the awesome pictures. Thank you Kiddo for giving me this honor and thank you Falco, Kaji and Chyna for the nomination !!! I love you all!

Navajo code talkers conclusion
Recruiters visited the Navajo rez and selected 30 code talkers. One dropped out so 29 started the program.Many of these were young Navajos who never left the Rez,making the transition to military life more difficult.Yet they perserved.
They would work night and day helpingto create the code.Once the first 29 were finished,two remained behind to train future Navajo code talkers.
The program was successful.The entire Navajo Nation had 50,000
people.By the end of the war 420 Navajo men worked as code talkers !!!

I salute all the Navajo Code talkers and our U.S soldiers. Please say a prayer for our military. They work hard to protect all of us and our freedom !!!

Much love to all of you
Love Panther Your Cheyenne Chief

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

Panther

PS Watch wind talkers starring Nicholas Cage.Awesome movie about the Navajo code talkers !!!

Dude !!! You look awesome on your profile picture !!!

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

  Hi Moggie
Kiddo here, filling in for my frother in feathers, Panther. His mom called and their puter is still down, so I am using his log on to continue his campaign for him at least for today and tomorrow when his mom is going in for her surgery. She thinks she will be back to blogging the day after that, but my mom had the same surgery and says she is smoking something funny in her peace pipe if she thinks she will be up to blogging that quick! We shall see.

Anyway Panther has had such an interesting campaign for us this month with a lot to learn about our Northern Cheyenne Native Americans. He wanted to ask each of you what is the most interesting thing you have learned about them this month?

Thanks for voting for Panther,
Kiddo

The offering of sage or cedar is when we burn it and rub the smoke on ourselfs for blessings and healings. We also burn it and offer the sweet smelling smoke to our spiritual helpers and to our creator.

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

  Hi Moggie
Being a 'tiel you are well aware that many of us have night frights. Well, almost all of ours have corresponded with an earthquake. Mom thinks we feel it and startle each other and that's why we fall off the perch. When she checks us she can tell we're still mostly asleep (no squawking) and amazingly have never been hurt and after putting us back on our perch we just go right back to sleep. In the morning we are fine as if nothing happened.

Now, if the pesky broom gets anywhere near us we freak out and flap and jump and squawk like crazy! A lil earthquake is nothing, heehee.

Glad Kookie took a break for you to visit! Have a great day, wing hugs and a vote, Pearl and Silver.

Who laid the eggs? Mom is scared of those since one almost killed Polly.
Our weather is going back to 'normal' for this time of year. That means a tad warm for mom. The sun was shining it was in the lower 80s so she did not mow the lawn. She DID do a bit of weeding.
Tomorrow mom gets to go with a friend and her grandchildren (6) to the zoo.

Our stars seem to be lining up much better these days, we are having very nearly perfect weather, and more importantly our daddy is doing much better! He is still slow, but is sleeping better, so he feels more rested, and yesterday we got phone calls from some of our very best BC friends, Sugar and aunt Eileen, our sweet aunt Denice and Alfie, even uncle Art Z gave us a call last night, our box of toy parts has shipped, yippee! If those people can't cheer a person up, they might as well start throwing in the dirt on ya, LOL! We are really trying hard to keep up with our BC notes and blogs, we feel an obligation to do so, it has been a huge part of our lives for so long! Rest assured, we are fighting back, our best love to all in your happy home, see ya tomorrow...

  Hi Moggie
Please greet everyone in the flock for us! Mom sent your mom an email last night, then today she got one from Robin! It's still up in the air, but when Robin's daughter leaves, she'll get her end resolved, then hopefully we can, too. If all else fails, Cookie's mom is going on Friday and Saturday, too, so that might help your mom? Mom wants to talk though!
Mom is happy that the next few days are supposed to be like yesterday, only warmer. Yesterday it was in the mid 70s, and today it's heading into the 80s, but it's dry for a change. We are supposed to see some dry weather for the next few days. One of Mom's hibiscus bushes bloomed yesterday, she posted the blossom on FB. 2 more bushes have buds, but no blooms yet.
Today is another good day for the pool, tomorrow mom has a mammogram scheduled, and they are delivering the cabinets, so maybe not a pool day, then Saturday if the weather holds, it's another great day for pool!
Please keep Dixie's family in your thoughts and prayers today. Hope you are having a good day and getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Willie

Come visit me, Gizmo and Divo, mom loves you both, Willie, Peppino & Falco.

  Hey Mogg's
I have you signed up as an elder too...Your 15 yrs old so you get to be an elder too !!!

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.

Thank you for your votes
Love Panther

Don't forget to go to the milonga page and adopt some elders for Saturday Nights Gathering of the elders Pow Wow on the milonga page...

  Hi, Moggie
With your big flock it is no wonder any blog time is at a premium. We enjoy seeing you on the rare times your fister Kookie is taking a break, heehee.

We are molting and happy to say not beak battling much this time around. Had a lil earthquake the other morning that knocked us off our perches. The parronts didn't feel it but mom heard us fall. After she gave us the once over we went right back to sleep. Most (if not all) our night frights have been earthquake caused.

Had a couple days of hot/humid but now back to our mild summer temps, ahhhhhh!

Have a great day, wing hugs and a vote, Pearl and Silver.

Oh how good it is to hear from you!Out of this bad day came you!Dixie sure is gonna miss Cookie and hey what's with the Kookie?Now that will be fun to go and visit her!
Please forgive us for the short visit today,but Mom and skin sis got into a bad accident on the way home to Mom's house.They were a minute or two away from Mom's house when an idiot in a big cargo van came flying out of the side street and smashed into the passenger side of skin sis's car and it was such a mess.Skin sis was so upset and got really hurt,it was a mess,traffic got tied up and then there were ambulances,Fire rescue and police on the scene.It was about 5:30pm and a nurse came up and checked her out.Mom got a ride home in the fire rescue truck with Dixie and skin skis went in the ambulance to the Hospital and then Mom had to get dad and he took Mom to the hospital to find skin sis and they were there for hours while they waited for the X-rays to come through.Skin sis was in so much pain they shot her up with oxycontin?Then by the time skin sis got out of the hospital it was close to nine pm.Mom's stomach is a mess and skin sis is so upset because she won't have a car to get to work and now she has to go through the insurance company and get her car towed to the repair shop.We apologize for not being here,Mom is so upset and so tired and her head is killing her.Mom will take us all back tomorrow. Love,Peepers

  Hey Mogg's
I got you guys signed up !!!

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

  Hey Mogg's
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 !!!

  Hey Mogg's
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
Gives him a big kiss and say's I was wondering if you loved me. I'm happy cause I love you too !!!

The happy couple look out the door of their lodge and see Jen and Kacey smiling at them.

Kiddo's three brothers Cappy,Pearl and Silver are playing drums for them while everyone puts gifts in front of their lodge.

Kiddo say's this is a good marriage and we will be together forever...

Thank you for your votes

You have a lovely crown!
Where are the bears coming from? Is this a newly developed area?
That is funny, the neighbors scaring the poor bears yard to yard.
Where does mom work?
Our city water is usually very good. Don't know about now, but was rated highly in the whole US. Mom tries to get the skinsibs to be aware of the bathroom and kitchen sinks being bacterial breeding grounds--they don't always believe.

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 !!! Trick marriage continued...

As Kiddo rides into the herd of wild mustangs he fly's like the wind !!!

Kiddo whispers in his war pony's ear and his war pony knows where to take him.
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...

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...

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!

How often do you have bears visit? Y'know you makes yourself BIG and make LOTS of noise. Do the bears leave?
Mom's are funny about health things. She always wants skinbro to wash the sink before letting Polly take baths in it too. (Bathroom sink where everyone brushes teeth)
Almost back to normal schedule. Still settling, just got in yesterday--even the skins after 3 am. Mom said she had all of 4 hours of sleep between 6 am Monday and 9 pm Tuesday.

I'm here to break you out !!! Let's go !!! What about a dive bomb on CuBird ??? That should keep her in check !!!

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 ???

  Hey Mogg's
Stick around for more Northern Cheyenne traditions !!!

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

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

Tomorrow I will talk to you about Northern Cheyenne weddings and take you where you never had been to before.
