Lac La Ronge Indian Band members are traveling across the north teaching people how to garden

This is awesome! I hope that composting and permaculture are included in the courses.

Lac La Ronge gardenThe Star-Phoenix, April 27, 2016

Every time Phillip McLeod went boating along the Churchill River in northern Saskatchewan, he saw huge cleared areas along the forested riverbank.

Curious about who had once tamed the land, the Lac La Ronge Indian Band member told the elders what he’d seen.

“They said ‘That used to be our garden,’ ” McLeod recalls. They told him stories of using dynamite to blast away rocks and trees and of nurturing a wide range of crops including strawberries, melons, potatoes and carrots.

Elsipogtog roadblocks planned to keep drugs out of community

You know, they said after 9/11 that the infringement of our personal rights was worth it to curtail terrorism…and look where that has led…
I admire the thought to rid the community of drugs and I know how they have destroyed communities and families. I just don’t think this is the way to go about it. Perhaps a history lesson of the 60s — where we had a great movement of peace and tolerance for one another until drugs were introduced. David Crosby was asked what destroyed the 60s movement…and he answered “cocaine”. I see this happening all over again with meth and legalized marijuana…it’s hard to be strong against the Dark Side when you’re toxic from chemicals — be they recreational or not. The young do not understand why the politicians want them doped out of their minds…

Warrior chief John Levi says ‘It’s about time we made a stand and got our community back’ from influx of drugs

By Tori Weldon, CBC News, Apr 28, 2016

John Levi, the warrior chief at Elsipogtog First Nation, is planning to erect roadblocks on the three routes into the Mi’kmaq community in an attempt to curtail what he says is a steady stream of street drugs entering the reserve.

“It’s been many years that we’ve had problems with drugs in our reserve,” said Levi.

INAC protesters in Winnipeg record video of ‘unexpected’ police visit

I think there is good and bad in every segment of society. I hope these officer’s intentions were good…but it remains to be seen whether they are respectful and upholding the law that allows free speech and assembly.

When two police officers showed up at the Indigenous and Northern Affairs Canada (INAC) office in Winnipeg, where protestors have been peacefully occupying for 12 days, the group figured the worst.

“I heard someone say ‘the police are here’ and the warriors went to the elevator to block them,” protest supporter, Vivian Ketchum told CBC News. The occupiers are standing in solidarity with the Attawapiskat community and other First Nations amid a suicide crisis.

Malaysia Flight 370 found?

Video here:


As you know, I had a vivid dream of MH370 about two weeks after it disappeared.  It was at the bottom of the ocean, everyone still strapped in their seats — with the exception of three bodies I saw float to the top.  To be more specific, these three people were in the first three seats of the left side of the plane (as you face forward), at the front of the regular section (in other words, not first class).   And this I did not reveal before, because I did not want to upset folks, but I have to say that the feeling I got was that these three were somehow connected, perhaps even responsible, for the plane going down.

Sea World continues to hold Tillikum captive **edited

instead of transporting him back to his native waters in the Pacific Northwest.

I love how they continue to portray themselves as giving a rat’s behind on Tillikum’s health and how they spin keeping him isolated in marine jail (medicine tank).

How can they justify 30+ years of keeping him caged?

Take him back to his native waters where he was stolen from…let him live free for what time he has left.  As I said before, they are probably worried that he would actually improve being  released from marine prison…

To those of you that pray or send Light and Energy, please do so for Tillikum…and all caged animals.

**Edited to add:  found this link about the story.  Note that Sea World launched a million dollar Public Relations campaign to boost its image…instead of doing the right thing by using that money to transport Tillikum back to his native waters.

Beeswax food wrap

Reblogging this great idea. In the comments, someone said they melted the beeswax in a double boiler, and then used a brush to *paint* on the beeswax. Great idea! Be the change you wish to see in the world….starting with reducing dependence on suffocating plastic. 🙂


Ali Does It Herself has a blog up on a great idea for food storage.   I’m all about getting rid of plastic for the environment, and this is a way to do that.  I usually use glass for storing food,  but this looks promising, too.

Statement from Vancouver #Occupy INAC

Glad to see the reference to holding women sacred. Only when women are treated as equals; only when the rape culture has been eliminated; only when the gentle is respected and honored along with the fierce will we begin to correct all the wrong that has been done. God Bless those that feed the Light.
