The Leadership of RedNation
« on: February 19, 2014, 10:49:25 PM »
The leadership of The RedNation is as follows...

The Creator... Of all things is our highest authority... Every decision, every policy of The RedNation is passed upwards and a sign of yes or no is waited upon... Man may make mistakes or allow their own turmoils to interfere, The Creator however only gifts his children with what they most need to live, grow in wisdom and joy...

The Storytellers of the past... These wonderful ancestors watched and listened to all things, they took note and with the Creators guidance made the stories that teach and sustain all the people. Without the Storyteller/Legend Keeper, we would not even know of the Creator, nor any of the wonders in the world, therefore The RedNation is guided by the Storytellers, both the ancestral and those whom are still amongst us...

The Medicine... The Medicine is represented by those self sacrificing, stoic people, both men and women whom gave themselves over to care for the minds, hearts, physical and spiritual health of the people. Through vision questing they guided the chiefs in their decisions, guided the people through the challenges faced be it drought or flood. The medicine people are connected to Mother Earth and to the Creator of all in ways the average person cannot imagine and suffer greatly for their bond. Apart from the challenges of trying to walk in two worlds (modern society often calls this madness, yet still cannot explain the abilities and knowledge of the Medicine People); They also face the day to day responsibility of finding and using the herbal remedies, of keeping the people healthy in all ways and of guiding the people on the Path given by the Creator. The ancestors are still walking among us with their teachings, and the Medicine people of today are still working quietly in the background to guide the people towards the future...

The Ancestors... Our ancestors are actively involved in the running of The RedNation. How you ask, to put it simply, by the shining examples they gave us to follow... The courage of the great leaders, their wisdom in finding a path for the people, the sheer power of their words and actions guides us every day in our actions if we are willing to study, listen and follow the terms they laid down for us... The Following are some of those whom we owe the examples of how to live our lives and how to serve The Creator...

Geronimo, whose strength of conviction even today leaves us breathless, because he followed his vision no matter what. He suffered many heartbreaks because of this, yet remained on the path of the Creator till he made his journey...

Crazy HorseCochiseChief Rain in the FaceSitting Bull, before ever becoming a chief was renowned as a prophet/ visionary of the people. He became a true ambassador of all native peoples. In latter years many considered him a sell-out to the indigenous people by his participation in the Wild-West shows of Buffalo Bill but in his visions he saw that the only way to keep any of the truth on display so those of true heart could see, was to be out there and to be seen...

Dragging CanoeBennelongDull KnifeChief JosephNancy WardSacajaweaFloyd Hand: He was a prophet in his own time. He seen in vision how the paths of the people could very well take a good path and finally come together and grow strong again as one Nation of many combined Nations for Survival of knowledge and spirituality, Or) a very fatal path by which all would parish and their customs, ways and knowledge would pass away with them forever, because of their choices.

Please do not consider this list as being complete as it is far from it, in fact we will be adding more as we go as well as adding more to these stories of our ancestors so that our history is not lost. We invite people whom remember the stories and legends of their people to submit the names and stories of those ancestors whom they have grown up hearing of so that we may add these memories to this site. Also we would ask in what way the example shown by these elders that affects your life today...

There are also many living Medicine elders involved in this project from tribes extending from the tip of South America through to Alaska, the Pacific Islands, Australia, Papua New Guinea and even Africa. Their names are not listed here as the purpose of this site is not to promote the individual, but to promote the spirit and heart of the people. Also by not offering the names etc of those still living, we are not making them the target of those whom would attempt to reduce them and offer insult. The medicine is the heart of the people and must be protected at all costs. If the medicine is harmed, the heart of the people is damaged...
