“We took an oath not to do any wrong to each other or to scheme against each other.” – Geronimo
In my view, Geronimo was not the last Apache Native to surrender. He had compassion for the last remaining Apache family before Manifest Destiny; and he merely wanted the Apache Native American seed to carry on when he admitted himself as a sacrifice in order for the Apache blood to continue.
The absolute dignity of the Apache Native American continues…
San Carlos, Arizona, is a place where the U.S. Government rounded up many Apache’s to keep away from scaring white settlers, and as we move forward into the new millennium — it is my goal to do what I can (with my limited talents afforded to me) in order to help make the world better as we work to supporting our Native friends in Arizona.
I have a deep appreciation for Douglas Miles of the San Carlos Apache Tribe in Arizona because the Great Spirit that lives within him is the same One that makes something from nothing. It is my wish into the universe that the Mexican-Americans and Apache’s will create an alliance from love that is more powerful than an atomic bomb. My hope is to take care of the land that was created for us by our Creator.
The video below is extremely soulful and I am grateful Douglas Miles shared it with me this morning …. setting the tone of future things to come. In other words, this Mexican-American (me) seeks an alliance with the Apache Natives for the sake of caring for our lands and our environment. Allowing love to break through the darkness that sometimes blinds us. It’s good to smoke a little tobacco from mother earth that comes in a gifted sacred cloth … exchanging peace between neighboring communities to undo past evils. I am saddened to hear the Apache Tribe of San Carlos does not have an art museum commemorating the talent I see coming from there. I am asking the Great Spirit — our Creator … to help me work towards ensuring the light shines from San Carlos.
Will our Creator hear our prayers?
