🌵☀️🎨 I just finished watching “Navajo Springtime” on Amazon Prime (a very interesting show) they talked about sand painting!

They spoke directly to medicine man Sam Begay about the process. I was taking notes, but I recommend watching the documentary for a greater understanding.

Brand new to the gallery. This 11 x 14 original oil by Hyrum Joe is titled “Medicine Man Stops to Gather Sage.” Please inquire for details.



Hyrum has provided the following statement:

“From experiences sitting in a 10x10 ft. sweatlodge, listening to the drumbeat, the singing of a Navajo Medicine Man has significantly changed my way of life, and spirituality. I've developed a deep and profound love and appreciation for the Medicine Men who've taught me much of life's teaching's about humanity, respect and the simple elements that shape our lives and that enable me to remain humble and caring, loving to my fellow peers and family. Here, a Medicine Man rides his pony to perform the Night Way Chant for a certain family. While riding though the canyon, he senses a strong fresh smell of sage all around him. He will gather some and leave an offering of corn pollen in its place and thank the Great Creator for the sage.“

Joe Vandever Sr. dies at 96

Navajo Code Talker Joe Vandever Sr., one of more than 400 Navajo Code Talkers who developed a secret military code during World War II, died Friday.

He was 96.
Vandever's daughter Sheila Nez, 54, said her father passed away in Haystack, New Mexico. "He had health issues and it just took his life," she said. "He lost my mom, who he had lived with for 73 years, on Sept. 24, 2019. I think that's probably part of it, too." Nez said that her mother,  Bessie D. Vandever, was always there for her dad and often helped him bounce back whenever he went into the hospital.

Vandever will be buried next to his wife in Santa Fe, New Mexico.

Vandever, from Haystack, served in the United States Marine Corps from 1943 to 1946 as a Navajo Code Talker. Vandever was drafted at age 19, and he was honorably discharged in January 1946.

Vandever served in the Pacific theater. He was a part of the 6th Marine Division during his service in Okinawa, Japan, and China. He was in the 3rd Marine Raider Battalion in Bougainville, and then the 4th Marines Regiment Brigade while in Guam. “The Navajo people have lost another great warrior who sacrificed more than we’ll ever know to defend our country. On behalf of the Navajo Nation, we offer our prayers and heartfelt condolences to his children, and many other loved ones,” said Navajo Nation President Jonathan Nez.

Vandever was sent overseas in October 1943 and joined the 6th Marine Division, 3rd Raider Battalion. He traveled on 16 battleships and was stationed in New Caledonia, the Somoan Islands, Bougainville, Guadacanal, Emirau Island, Guam, Okinawa, Japan and China.

Friday the 13th Harvest Full Moon Circle.
Words cannot describe the fullness of my heart after last night's circle.

I am humbled and grateful for the community that has grown around us, thank you 🤗
"Life is Brutiful!"... Isn't it though? :p
Repost from @taraleduc from our #fullmoon circle last night.
#fridaythe13th #harvestmoon
The full moon is the time we are invited to reflect and release what is not serving us: the heavy, the sad, behaviours, patterns, relationships... whatever.
And.... the grief card coming up reminds us that #grief is a part of life, and this is now something to be released before it is time. You may even have old grief coming back up, and that's ok. Honour it. Process it. Then release it.
Circle of life, trickster and freedom horse all had messages for us:
#circleoflife ties to grief. We ALL go through death and loss. We all have times when he hurt, and times when we feel #celebration. Allow space for it all.
#Trickster is a message that all may not be as it seems. You are not necessarily being tricked. Something may need a second look, or a #reframe. #godeeper
And freedom horse let's us know support is always there.
Gibson Gonnie #navajomedicineman was in circle with us last night, and explained that at the time of death/physical transition, a horse is present to carry us to the Spirit World. So, even in metaphoric transition, the Freedom Horse and support is there for you. Allow it. Trust it.
"If you are going through hell, keep going."
Go gently.

Jones Benally teaches his family about Navajo plant medicine (his daughter Jeneda is on the left).

This is an outtake shot on assignment for Arizona Highways Magazine in 2016 for the August 2017 issue.
****************Note: Although the story was about plants of the San Francisco Peaks, including its importance to many indigenous peoples, the tribes no longer collect from the mountain. I photographed this image near but not on the mountain. I was very saddened to learn about the history of Snowbowl from several tribes’ perspectives while working on this story. For example, Snowbowl started using recycled wastewater to make their snow. Independent testing found this water to contain all kinds of chemicals including pharmaceuticals, hormones, antibiotics and antifreeze, etc. Many tribes and some environmental organizations fought hard to prevent its use. I encourage anyone planning to visit Snowbowl during ski season to look into the history of the place. There is too much of the story to include here. (These thoughts/comments are my own, I do not speak for Arizona Highways Magazine).

Native American beliefs are deeply rooted in their culuture.

We believe EVERYTHING is sacred from the largest mountain to the smallest plant and animal. A lesson can be found in all things and experiences and everything has a purpose.To sum up Native Spirituality; it is about HONOR, LOVE, and RESPECT. Not only do we love, honor, and respect our Creator and our Mother Earth, but also every living thing. It is about being in touch with ourselves and everything around us. It is about knowing and understanding that we are part of everything, and everything is a part of us. We are all One. We also believe that our Elders hold the answers. Our Elders keep our culture alive. We have much to learn from our Elders, and they deserve and receive our utmost respect. Listed below is some poems, quotes and rules that show the beliefs native americans hold. No matter the person nor the tribe it is taken from. you can see a common string that runs through them. I have been asked many times what it is to be Native american. What it is we believe, and though I have given the above defintion to this day I still refer to the simple words of a departed loved one and teacher. White Feather; navajo/apache born medicine man. To him I dedicate this post. "Native American isnt blood; it is what is in the heart. The love for the land. The respect for it, those who inhabit it; and the respect and acknowledgement of the spirits and the elders. That is what it is to be indian."
White Feather
