In honor of Mother's of all nations...

We put our minds together

To give thanks to our oldest Grandmother,
The Moon, who lights the night-time sky.
She is the leader of women all over the world,
And she governs the movement of the ocean tides…
It is she who watches over the arrival
Of our children.

Through the skies and Indigenous star knowledge and symbolisms in the form of the morning star, where each day begins… our first prayer, to the feminine energies asking for balance in our lives, to the true warriors of the people… the women, our mothers… protected by the messengers, the eagle, the hawk, all the winged ones… looking towards a better future for all nations, all my relations, walking in beauty… together, down to the simplest of life forms.

Happy Mothers Day!

I wish to share this beautiful honoring statement sent to me from Native American Rights Fund; and sing praise to the beautiful and strong Chippewa women of The Little Traverse Bay Band of Indians of which I am a tribal member. I honor those who have walked the path before me and those who will now walk after___Deborah Kischassey Blake
