Oh Shinnah Fastwolf, If You Live On This Land..."

 "If you live on this land, and you have ancestors sleeping in this land,
I believe that makes you a native to this land.
It has nothing to do with the color of your skin.
I was not raised to look at people racially.
What I was taught is that we're flowers in the Great Spirit's garden.
We share a common root, and the root is Mother Earth."

- Oh Shinnah Fastwolf, Shishindi Nation (Apache)

  1. Can anyone tell me if Oh Shinnah is still with us in the physical world or has she crossed over to the Spirit World ? She was my late wife's and my "Other Mother". Stands Strong Man

  2. I can't tell if this published or not, so here goes again:

    I'm her friend, and yes, she's very much still in this world. She remembers you.

    1. That is good to hear as I was told by Bettina Gordon ? that Oh Shinnah was in a state of dementia and was sometimes lucid and sometimes not, this was back in 2006, the last time she had spoken to or was told by someone else that this was the case. Since I myself talked to Oh Shinnah back in 2007 and she seemed fine then, I didn't pursue it any futher(calling her) although I thought it was odd that Bettina, who made the dvd with her said she herself had not talked to her in about 5 years. I'm glad I checked back with you and happy to see this is dated 2012 and I can only hope the phone number I have for her is still the same, will just have to call and see if it is or isn't. I'm guessing that KW is Kaiwie ? I have been dealing with some physical conditions this year or I would have answered you sooner so I can only hope she's still with it. My email is seanhanns@gmail .com if you would like to reply to me that way. I had a dream with her in it back in Jan. and a dream with 3 rainbows and 1 more rainbow was a swirling rainbow, just snippets of the whole dreams, and finally found out what a dream I had years ago finally meant while watching a show about the Aborigine People and how they walk these trails that they have been doing just forever and how they scoop up some mud as they go and wipe it onto a tree and I can't recall if they do this to leave a way to follow in the dreamtime for themselves or their ancestors but I had a dream a long time ago in which I was fishing for some rainbow trout in completely clear waters and had caught 2, one very big and plump and one a bit smaller, I used to have this theme in my dreams a lot, and when I looked up I saw a very old skinny dark skinned man who reached down and scooped up some mud and smeared it onto the tree and I didn't know what else to do except to do as he did myself which seemed to make him happy as he was smiling at me and left me feeling as though we had communicated or connected somehow. So I finally understood what that dream was about only recently after seeing this show. I honestly don't know why I'm telling you this, and have to add that more of my life dream has come true as well unfortunately, regarding my physical condition and my mental/emotion state of mind. I've been wanting to find out if Oh Shinnahs health was as bettina had told me ever since I came across that video of her in 2011 speaking at forum for what I don't know, at the end of her prayers a woman came up to her and gave her something wrapped in red cloth in the traditional way, there were Tibeten monks there also, saw this online. I'm trying to listen more to my inner voice now as I found out the hard way that not doing so can be very painful, and so I'm writing this, I've been thinking about her and how all she kept repeating in the prayer she was giving was to each and every direction to forgive us all, to Grandmother earth to forgive us all and to the Creator to forgive us all and that has been on my mind ever since I saw it and since one of the parts of my life dream I had with her in it when I asked what can we do to help us through a rough time which is going to happen to everyone, I was told to pray for the people-all the people, and for the longest time I just could not figure out what to say in that prayer but after watching that video I think I now know what to pray for-Forgiveness for us all, and I have to leave it up to the Creator just who "All the People" includes.
      Anyway, as my wife Nature Nancy used to say, "That's my story and I'm sticking to it". I hope this finds its way to you KW and Thank you for the reply, and I'm hoping that Oh Shinnah is doing fine and is in good health ! I will keep checking into this website and my email as I'm not so sure I should leave my phone # here. I honestly don't know why I hesitate to call her directly, I'll just have to try I guess but think I should wait for a reply from you KW.
      Love to you all,
      Sean
