Aloha kakahiaka!  Good Morning!!  

It is a chilly, windy, and rainy morning on the island today.  The sand on the beach was flyin'..the waves pounding.  Not a very long walk this morning but I did  manage to capture the sun peeking out just on the horizon as we welcome this new day.   My prayers were strong and continue for Chief Theresa Spence and PM Harper!

 Today  I am thankful for hearing the news that there has been a meeting agreed to  with Chief Spence and Prime Minister Harper.  I understand that the Chief is still continuing her hunger strike until this meeting actually happens.  It is scheduled for next week.  Her continued hunger strike sends a powerful message letting the rest of the world know, that promises have been broken before.  Just because the meeting is on the books does not mean it will happen.  

So please let the prayers for support continue for Chief Theresa Spence!  If you like read more regarding this issue go here

Aweepeno, Jane and Dennis
Strong thoughts and prayers also going out for support for my good friend Aweepeno and my sweatlodge community, the SweetHeart Lodge.  Today marks the day of the changing of waterpourers for our lodge.  Aweepeno is being initiated and my prayers will continue through the night for her as she fasts, and prays until tomorrow at sunrise.  I am so grateful for this community and our commitment to ceremony.  Thank you so much for the years of guidance and blessing Jane Ely and may your new assignment bring you many blessings and joy!
