For those of you who live up here in the North East US, I am jealous. It is beautiful here. Rainy right now, but just fabulous. I want to move here.
It would be so cool to have a place here for the summer. We are staying near Francestown NH. if you know where that is. It's awesome.
Move here? That would be great!! Shall we check out open houses tomorrow?

In RI there is a Native American shop that I've visited several times. I don't know of a specific Native American community, but the Narragansetts do hold an annual powwow toward the end of the summer, and, of course, there are the Indian casinos in CT.

I though Indian casinos were only in med-west like Nevada. Are you related to Nedoba?

No, not related. We have Foxwoods and Mohegan Sun just across the state line in Connecticut, and there will probably be several more in Massachusetts before long. The Narragansetts here in RI would also like to build a casino.

It is good to hear that they are growing so there must be more and more cultural acceptance. We have one local group of Monacan Indians that have over 1000 members and has a POW WOW each year that everyone has attended. They had a wonderful Indian shop that had imported homemade Indian clothing and anything you needed until their Chief died two years ago. He had sweat lodges and Indian prayer lodges. When they first came here several decades back they were not accepted with open arms but they are today. I bought up much of their beautiful had craft pottery before it closed. I am focusing on spiritual things now concerning the Bible but I love my heritage and will not forget.

i woud as well like to note that the orignal teachings in the words 10 commandments of native americans never existed ... again a title that never was ..... the teaching above noted are taught in different ways among different tribes but all are generally the same ..... the intntions are close ..... but when taught and said they are more in a loving and caring way not as commandments would be considered ..... thank you

I was born in the country in my grand parents house,then we moved into town which in this country is not a huge distance.We now live kind of in between,walking distance to either is similar as the need for more houses has swallowed up what used to be meadows full of wild flowers and butterflies,frogs ,newts and larks,now the song of the lark is a rare thing.
There are still rolling hills with cattle and sheep,but the view from them is the roof's of houses in the distance.
The pictures you see are I think from Southern Ireland,where the population is more spread out.Even we in the North,a few hours drive away, find those images quaint.Small meadows with dry stone walls,there are still a few here in the Mourne Mountain area,and for the moment seem to be under no immediate threat,if only because of the slump in the economy.
"Green belts" as the government likes to call them ( protected areas) are all very well,until some rich developer comes along and scratches an itch on some politicians back pocket,and know what? 100's of jobs will be created in the building of new homes for people who cant afford to buy them.lol.
But yes Nedoba there still exists those wonderful pictures you have seen both here in the north and in the south,they are just slowly diminishing.
Granted...there are still countless places that reflect the glorious beauty that our Creator has touched these with....but so much has been ruined due to mankind's greed and negligence. It is difficult to envision the drastic and welcome changes we will see and enjoy when this earth once again resembles what it looked like long ago :o)

Do you know where in Co.Cavan your ancestors lived Nedobah?I had an uncle who was born in Cootehill, Co.Cavan.
No, actually, I don't know. My sister might, as she and my parents have visited Ireland a few times....together and separately. Two years ago, my sister sent me some Irish Crystal and a fantastic woven wool cape from there...we have had a cold spell here, and I wore the cape to the city a few days ago.(Tonight is our first hard freeze and official end of the growing season. I just got through pulling in the window boxes with geraniums in them....I keep them indoors on a windowsill all winter :)

Sorry to take so long to get back to you....but the hatred on this forum was getting so thick and spiritually damaging....that I decided to stop reading AND posting here for a while. I have spent a good deal of time reading and absorbing what was much more warm and encouraging so as to keep things more balanced out in what I was reading. I DID miss a lot of posts from nice people though....but I felt it was for the best. I also have more time now that I am not concerned with all the garden chores, LOL!

I am writing about the way churches/halls raise money lately. do you have any memories about your hall here? i just remember the contribution box in back, and people gave money without a public display. if there was a special need the need was mentioned in announcements--like our heater is going and needs replacing. if you can give more that would be great.
is neboda gone because of the meanies? I was given the spam and nuts for saying hi, by some spoil sport already.
Between not feeling very well for a number of months....and trying to keep up with the gardens and regular household chores in the intense heat we dealt with all summer.....I decided that the pure meanness and all the nasty personally hurtful remarks flying around, that had nothing to do with disagreeing about religious views....I felt it was time for me to walk away from this place for the time being.

It was better for me to embrace all the fine spiritual things and for me to focus on the peace that our Creator wants us to during these difficult Last Days before His Kingdom comes.

I lived in MA 1941-1974 and then we relocated here in upstate NY on the Eastern shores of Lake Ontario. As a youngster, I spent many summers with my grandparents in VT at the tip of gorgeous Lake Memphramagog near Canada.....right across the lake from an Abenaki settlement. I feel the same about lighthouses as you do, LOL! They hold such a fascination for me.)

I have to agree with you. Native American wisdom is deep, profound, simple and true. It has certainly passed the test of time without monumental changes in dogma. There are countless tribes each with their own language, sacred stories, customs and ceremonies.

They all share the wisdom of being aware of the connection to not only each other but all life and spirit. Native American wisdom focuses on our Earth, all its creatures and how to best live in harmony with everything ON the earth we share as home . May the wisdom of my ancestors continue to bless and inspire our brothers and sisters. One thing we know there is only one God.

Those who follow what is known as "The Red Road", all believe that as people experience our Native culture, with an open heart, that they will develop a greater heartfelt acceptance for all things culturally different and have greater respect for people, land, and all aspects of creation (of which we are only stewards).

Although the First Americans lived from one end of the continent to the other....some in typically remote areas......and ones, at first, never met up with any others for many decades......the principles of these "commandments" (for lack of a better term) that they all diligently followed.....were surprisingly and amazingly very similar in context and content....without never having been written down until fairly recently.

I do thank you Eagle W Feather...for your polite and respectful contribution.

Hugs back hun....you cross my mind every day.....hope you are doing okay.

I just stuck my nose out the back door....it is brisk and very cold although there is that sweet, fresh smell that comes before a snowstorm. It is good for filling the lungs but not so good thinking about how long the snow lasts once it has begun to arrive for the season, LOL!
