  Hey Norman
Long time no hear from. I miss your blogs!!!

Happy Humpday!!!

Sorry I have to make this short my mommy has to go to PT today.

Everyone did an awesome job with answers. But lots of them was half answers because of the confusion on the date.My bad...

My mommys uncle was in the barrocks in Pine Ridge in 1973.He was also an active member of AIM. AIM started off as a peaceful group defending the traditional ways of our tribes.Years later they were called militants and a lot of bad stuff because they had to go to war with the government and the BIA(We call the BIA bossing Indians around)
One sided yes.Our government is very one sided.It's ok for them to kill and inprison us but when we fight back we are called militants.We are warriors!!!

Everyone who answered my question about AIM can go to my gallery and pick up a pendleton blanket and post it on thier gallery.The blankets also make awesome backgrounds for our pictures. Alot of Native American babies use them for that too.

Todays question What tribe are my tribe's the Northern Cheyennes worse enemies and why...

Get your research on and win some beautiful Native American Jewelery.

Muck Love to all my friends and relations.

Love your King War Chief

I have not heard from you for a while.Just letting you know I miss your blogs...

Happy Thursday !!!
As I promised I am going to share my big skin brother's Poem...
His name is Circling Eagle Bigfoot from my Grandfathers clan.
The Elk Horn Scraper Clan...This clan in my tribe are heavy duty medicine men and they are also match makers.

Circling Eagle was 8 years old when he wrote this poem. This poem brought him to be SO-Cals Indian student of the year...

This poem is over 20 years old and has won the SO-CAL state finals in the short poems division. It is very heart felt and it is what a young Native American boy can see from behind his eyes. At the time he wrote the poem there was great saddness because of the change in our Traditional Pow Wow circuit because it starting catering to the by standers who made it commercial more than traditional. My family was raised on the PowWow trail and they all saw our traditional ways being put a side.Leaving a mere memory of the good times.Todays Pow wows will never be the same.

Here's the poem
I'm just an Indian boy Written by Circling Eagle Bigfoot

I'm just an Indian Boy
I struggle to stay alive
So my traditional ways can survive

I'm just an Indian boy
I walk the narrow read mans road
I try to stay strong and bold

I'm just an Indian boy
The Elders say I must fight to live another day
That is the only way

I'm just an Indian boy
I hold my head up proud
And walk like Thunder thats loud

I'm just an Indian boy
I must fight for my people and defend
So our traditional ways will not end
I will always defend

I'm just an Indian boy
My eyes are filled with tears
I'm still a young boy with fears

I'm just an Indian boy
Just like the elders say
Sometimes are enemies have to kill us
Because they can't kill our spirit

I'm just an Indian boy
I will fight on for my people forever

By Circling Eagle Bigfoot.

Have an awesome day to all my friends and relations
Love King Chief Warrior

  Hey Norman
I'm finally back !!! My mommy is still recovering from her surgery in this horrible hot weather and she had the summer flu all at once.
We had two days of cooler weather and the temps are going up to 105 degrees and will stay in the triple digits until next weekend.
Once again we don't believe the weather geeks on the news because it's always hotter than what they say it will be. My mommy firmly believes that this climate where we live is to harsh for hoomans.
Hoomans here in Perris SO-CAL don't look as healthy as hoomans in other cities and thier temps are not so hot like they are over here. BUMMER !!!
I'm sorry I have to c/p today but my mommy has another post op appointment and she's catching up on my blogs.

Have an awesome day

Happy TGIF !!!
The temps are supposed to drop to 89 degrees today.Hopefully the weather geeks on the news are not lying again !!!

Tonight when my daddy gets home he's taking my mommy grocery shopping. I can't wait to sink my beak into those yummy peaches and carrot tops she brings home.

Tomorrow I might not be on BC cause my Mommy and daddy are going to Redondo beach to check out a fixer upper house. My mommy hopes they get it.
But first they got to see how much work is involved in fixing it up.
That would be nice to get out of this hot city and move close to the beach.The cool enviroment would make mommy a happy camper.

As for me and my flock we get lockdown with the skin sibs watching us tiels.

  Hi ya Norman~
I hope you are having a great day! That gathering of Nations sounds spectacular!
Mom has driven through NM on her way to Colorado. It is beautiful. Mom loves the red desert! When she first got there, everyone else in the car was sleeping and she wanted to wake them up and let them see it! She was in awe of how beautiful it was. She didn't stop in Albuquerque but did spend the night in Santa Fe. They came from CA so it was a long drive but worth it!
Enjoy your day!

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

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

What is sage and cedar used for and how is it used ???

What are the different catagories in Powwow dancing ???

Whats the difference between traditional Powwows and non traditional Powwows ???

Why do we have a special day for our Elders ???

At what age does a boy become a warrior ???

  Hey Norman
I like your profile picture buddy. You the man !!!

Wow what a small world this is !!! Did you know that my daddy is full blooded Acoma Pueblo ??? My mommy is full blooded Northern Cheyenne.
They actually met at the Gathering of Nations Powwow and fell in love. After they got married my mommy went to live on the Acoma rez with my daddy and his family. My daddy is from the wild turkey clan and my skin uncle is a clown medicine man on the Acoma rez. My mommy has also won three blue ribbons in the New Mexico state fair in Albuqurque in Indian arts and crafts...

We love New Mexico green chili. We can't get it over here. Does McDonalds still serve green chili in their hamburgers ??? My mommy misses that alot !!! She also misses going to Hatch New Mexico and bringing home roasted green chili.And god fathers pizza with the green chili was always a must have for her !!!

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

  Hi Norman
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 Panther,
Kiddo

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.

  Hey Norman
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...

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

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...

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.

  Hey Norman
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 Norman
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...

  Hey Norman
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...

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...

  Hey Norman
Happy Humpday buddy !!!

Today I'm going to explain to you more about my Northern Cheyenne culture and traditions...

In the next three day's you will get to experience a very old traditional Courtship and a Trick marriage and a Traditional wedding...

First let me explain a few things about my tribe to give you a better understanding...

My tribe's Creator is the same as the Creator that all of you worship.We call him Mah-Hey-Yoh. This means the creator of the earth ,the sky's, and all living things that are good. He made all of us. We only have one god...And that's Mah-hey-yoh...

Many generations ago we had our Northern Cheyenne language and we all spoke to each other and communicated. Because of our strict protocol we also had a woman's language that only the women understand and a mans language that only the men would understand.To this day the traditional's use the same language...

We also pray with Sage and Sweet grass and Cedar...We burn it and we smudge our self with the smoke from it. Before and after each social gathering we would be blessed by a medicine man and they would smudge us.It was also used in healing and protection and blessings...

We pray to four directions for spiritual help.The four directions are North, South,East and West...That's why you see a cross on our traditional clothing...It represents the North, South,East and West...These are the spiritual helpers...

All marriages must be in the same tribal status. Such as the higher status of Warrior families must be within the same tribal status. The medicine clans are also in the status of the Warrior clans.

All marriages must be approved of by both families. Some are arranged and some are not.
Marriages are preformed by our holy man or medicine man. A trick marriage must be approved before it takes place. Without the bride knowing. This is where the mans language is used man to man...Heehee !!!
All Marriages must be honorable.And must be proper and the most important part of the marriage is love and commitment and raising our children with our traditional ways...

Tomorrow I will start with courtship. After that marriages...Then you will see who get's married !!!

Can you guess ????

Thank you for your votes
Love
Panther

Sugar the story teller continues her story !!!

...Quill Work Woman...

As Quill Work Woman and her brothers,Cookie,Tweety,Peppi and Hulk climb the tree the buffalo charges the tree and him and his Buffalo Nation start to ram it breaking off big chunks of the tree trunk.
The tree trunk gets weak and starts to fall apart.

Quill Work woman says what are we going to do ??? Peppi aims his sacred bow and arrow at the tree trunk and shoots the arrow straight into the tree trunk...

The tree trunk gets thicker and the tree grows higher !!! Peppi aims his bow and arrow again and shoots the tree in the branches and the tree grows higher. He say's climb !!! Then again he shoots his sacred arrow into the trees branches and it reaches the clouds !!! He say's jump on the clouds !!! They all jump on the clouds and watch the tree fall down. The leader of the buffalo nation sits under the clouds and waits...

Quill Work woman says we are on the clouds what are we going to do ???
Suddenly they hear the voices of BooBoo and Cori who are star people...
Come up here and join us with the stars...It's beautiful !!!

Quill Work Woman and her brothers Tweety,Cookie,Hulk and Peppi jump on the nearest stars.They see their brother who was lost for many years and he says welcome to the stars.

Our Creator Mah-Hey Yoh has blessed us so we will never have to experience death...

They all live in the stars now and are very happy !!!

This is the origin of the Big Dipper Constellation...
Quill Work woman and the two star girls Cori And BooBoo and her four brothers with their lost brother will forever twinkle with the stars...
When ever you look up to the stars you will see them smiling at you.This is why the stars twinkle...

  Hey Norman
Sugar tells the second part of her story...Quill work woman...

The leader of the Buffalo Nation calls Quill work Woman and her Four brothers out !!!
The four brothers step out of their lodge with Quill Work Woman standing behind them...

The leader of the buffalo Nation says I have been watching your sister and I love her. I want to marry her and make her part of my buffalo Nation... May I please marry her my two legged brothers ???

Hulk says no you cant marry our sister, Cookie say's she belongs to the Northern Cheyenne Nation,Tweety say's she doesn't want to marry you and Peppi says please go away now.

The Leader of the buffalo nation is mad !!! He says how dare you speak to me that way !!!
I will be back in the Spring time and ask her again...
The buffalo runs off angry...

After the winter has passed and Spring comes in Quill Work Woman and her four brothers pack their belongings and plan to head back home to the Northern Cheyenne Nation...

As they are packing they hear the loud rumbling of buffalo hooves coming towards them.
The leader of the buffalo Nation calls out to Quill Woman and her four brothers...
He say's I'm hear once again to ask for your sisters hand in marriage my two legged brothers...
Cookie says no you can't marry our sister !!!

The Buffalo nation leader say's I'll be back to stomp you down into the earth and kill all of you.

Quill Work woman goes into the lodge and cuts a hole in the back of their lodge...
Suddenly they can hear thousands of Buffalo running towards them.
They all climb out of the hole in their lodge and Peppi grabs his sacred bow and arrow as he climbs out.
Soon as they get out of their lodge the buffalo stampede through their lodge and crush it...

With no where to go they run towards a big tree and start climbing up...
The Leader of the buffalo nation starts to charge the tree trunk to knock it down !!!

Part three of the story will continue tomorrow.
Can anyone guess what happens next ???

Thank you for your votes !!!

  Hey Norman
Sugar finishes her first story...
Tweety and Cookie are excited about the story and cheer Sugar on.
Hulk and Peppi ask Sugar can you tell us another story ??? BooBoo and Cori give Sugar a gift and she accepts...


*** QUILL WORK WOMAN***
There was a beautiful girl who was blessed with the gift of making beautiful quill work. She was also blessed spiritually having dreams and visions...One morning she got up and told her mother that she had a dream of having four brothers who are waiting for her...She made beautiful War Shirts for each one of them and decorated the war shirts with quills...

Quill work woman packed the War shirts and her belongings and gave her mother a kiss. She said I'm going to find my four brothers.
Off she walked into the snow. She walked for a hundred
miles...
She found a big lodge in the snow and went inside. Not being able to find her brothers. She unpacked the War shirts and waited...
Not long after a young warrior who was 8 years old his name is Peppi came in the lodge. He was happy to see her and said sister I have been waiting for you. I called you in your dreams...Quill work woman gave him his war shirt and it fit him perfect. He then told her he is a spiritual leader and carries the sacred bow and arrow...
A while later her other three brothers came in and asked Peppi who is this ??? Peppi said this our sister I called upon...
Quill work woman gave her other three brothers Hulk, Tweety and Cookie their war shirts. They fit each brother perfect.

Quill work woman and her brothers were so happy and she cooked for them and took good care of them. The brothers always liked to joke around and Hulk said I thought all big sisters that could cook are fat and ugly !!! Tweety and Cookie said our big sister is fine !!!

One day the four brothers went out to hunt for food while Quill work woman stayed home and cleaned up their lodge...
Suddenly she heard a loud sound of thunder and the ground was shaking. A buffalo stuck his head in her lodge and said Quill work woman our leader is in love with you and wants to marry you and become part of our buffalo nation !!! Quill work woman said no I am happy here with my brothers. The buffalo ran off to tell his leader.

Later that night the four brothers brought back food to prepare.
They heard the earth rumbling and then the leader of the buffalo nation was calling to them...

Story to be continued tomorrow.
Can you guess what happens next ???

Thank you for your votes
Love
Panther

  Hi Norman and flock
Thank you everybody for BOTD. I had a really good day though we didn’t realize I had gotten BOTD till this evening. Mom cracked an almond for me and also a walnut which I worked on for quite a while and got them both open so that was a prize in itself. Then mom gave me a new toy that I like to clean my beak on. My old one was looking pretty raggedy LOL. “Laughter is an instant vacation” Left a vote for you my friend. Your kissing cousin, Gus (RIP Chi chi)

Come visit me, Gus~Did somebirdy mention "nut"??? & Chi chi RIP my sweet girl..

“Hello Every Birdie! Today we are visiting Paris, France. Our first stop is going to be the Musée d'Orsay Museum. Let’s go!” They arrive at the museum, which used to be the Orsay Railway Station. They look through the museum, and see lots of art from the 1848s to 1914. Next they head over to the Tuileries Garden. They take a stroll through there, and it is lovely. After that, they go to see the Arc De Triomphe. The arc is big and beautiful. After they are done viewing that, they visit the Louvre Museum, one of the largest museums in the world. Inside, there is lots of artwork. They see the Mona Lisa, which makes Cookie very excited. When they are finished there, they take a tour of the Paris Catacombs. The Paris Catacombs are underground ossuaries, which hold the remains of about six million people. The tour is cool, but creepy. Next they visit the Musée Marmottan Monet. The museum features a collection of over three hundred impressionist and post-impressionist works by Claude Monet, Berthe Morisot, Edgar Degas, Edouard Manet, Alfred Sisley, Camille Pissarro, Paul Gauguin, Paul Signac, and Pierre Auguste Renior. After touring through the museum, they head over to see the Eiffel Tower. The tower is big and gorgeous. They visit the second floor of the tower, and look down at Paris. It is beautiful. After that, they eat dinner at a delicious French restaurant, and then head to a hotel. – Thanks for voting! See you tomorrow! Hugs, Jester
