Lakota Activist Alex White Plume lives with his family and extended family on a 2,000-acre ranch near Wounded Knee Creek, SD. We will be visiting with Alex about the morning of December 29, 1890, Wound Knee Massacre and Big Foot Ride. “The whole Sioux Nation was wounded at that last terrible massacre, and we’ve been suffering ever since. It’s true we have our own ways of healing ourselves from the genocidal wound, but there is just so much historical trauma, so much pain, so much death,” White Plume said, and he would know. It is time for us to just listen, thank you Alex White Plume for your willingness to share with us on KAOS Radio, this Sunday, Dec 27th, 2015 at 4pm. Tune in http://www.kaosradio.org

Yes, our life energy must be a gift for our future. Your life, my life, everybody’s life must follow your given path. So pray or meditate. Follow your inner path and learn just how powerful you are and learn that you are a leader for your people, your family, your children, and the Mother Earth.
