the Spirit of Native Americans

The Native American genetic code exists today.

The sound of the flute still reminds us of spring, and the spirit of Kokopelli sings to us.

We then saw the summer moon and the image of the proud, powerful Comanche, Quanah Parker. His mother was a European pioneer who lived among the Native Americans and learned their ways.

There is a hotel in northern California called the Gaia. The rooms are placed in a circle--like Gaia, mother earth--and like a Native American village. The center is green, the color of life, and in it is a firepit to release our prayers and show the way. Each room is named after something in nature: a bird, a mountain, running water.

The turning leaves tell us it is autumn. One of the first Native Americans known to the pioneers was Squanto. He had inherent knowledge about feeding himself and his soul. He believed in showing kindness to others, such as the Pilgrims. Thus, it is to Squanto that we express gratitude this Thanksgiving.


  1. Thank you for sharing about the Native Americans. When I taught First Grade, I remember teaching the class about Squanto.
    Happy Thanksgiving.
