The Elder by ☼Laughing Bones☾

Listen to the words of those before you, we have no written history, ours is a history passed down from generation to generation, it is a personal history, one we share with all those who have an open mind, an open heart, an open spirit

I am proud of my Native American Heritage and am making it a goal to return to a lot of the old ways.

Photography is my friend and outlet, making a statement concerning injustice and the need for equality amongst every soul that walks this Earth is my passion.

I create art to be controversial, and make you think.

The truth has never damaged the righteous cause

    Judy told me of your video ~ I’m glad I watched it! It’s so insightful and helpful ~ it validates the feelings we have about our Earth and the Indians and their great care of it ~ and the inevitable downfall of the American ways ~ I hope this sheds some light and causes some soul stirring and thinking ~ and maybe a better sense of reforming and doing without and with less. The creation of man-made things affects the environment ~ that is, everyone’s enviornment. Thank you for this message ~ I really liked the spirituality with which it was told ~ and the truth it holds. Bev : )

  • I am very pleased you gained from the message, if we fight the Earth, guess who loses?
