What we're about

My Prayer is that by opening our Stone Peoples Lodge to the wider community, we can help to bring some Healing to Unci Maka and All My Relations. There is NEVER a cost to join us in prayer, as we cannot sell something that Spirit brought to the Lakota Oyate to be shared with all the People of all the Nations, but we do ask that you be familiar with and abide by Inipi protocol/etiquette. We have a meal afterwards, so please bring food/drink (no alcohol) to share. We only have Open Ceremonies, so all are welcome, as long as they come with an open heart and with good intentions and Prayers. Please click on "More" in the line directly below the picture of our Hochoka/Altar, then click on "Message boards" in the pop up menu for more information on Inipi protocol/etiquette and some other pertinent info, which you will find in the post "Hau Mitakolas and Welcome New Members". If you have any questions or concerns after doing so, please let me know and I'll do my best to answer any questions and assuage any concerns. Wopila/Pilamaya for visiting our group page, and we hope that you will join us in Prayer soon.

Neither Wolf Nor Dog Movie in Pueblo Fri 3/22-Denver March Pow Wow Sat 3/23

The movie Neither Wolf Nor Dog, starring Lakota Elder Dave Bald Eagle, will be playing for one night only at Pueblo Memorial Hall on Fri 3/22 at 7:00pm. I have the DVD but haven't watched it yet as I was thinking of having another Native Movie Night here, but since I have a tiny house (unless someone would be willing to host a viewing), I thought that this would be a good opportunity to see this movie, which has gotten rave reviews (60% 10*, 85% 8-10* IMDB, 95% Rotten Tomatoes). It's $10.00 (go to: facebook.com/events/[masked]/ for tickets and more info), so let me know if you're interested in attending and we can meet there (or I can pick up as many as 4 people anywhere from Florissant through Woodland Park and down in COS if you need a lift or want to carpool) and meet earlier for dinner if you'd like. It's Denver March Pow Wow that weekend, so if anybody is interested in going (it's only $7.00, but if you're old like me, 60+, it's only $3.00), and since I thought we'd have Inipi on Sun 3/24, let's plan on Sat 3/23 for Pow Wow. Grand entry is usually at 11, so we can meet at 10 or a little later (get on line early if you want fry bread/Indian Taco), and I can pick up as many as 4 people as well. I won't get the announcement out for Inipi on Sun 3/24 until the beginning of March, but put it on your calendar if you're planning on attending. If you're going to make the movie, you can RSVP here, and I'll send another short email (I really don't like inundating you all with emails) to RSVP for Pow Wow. We don't usually meet for anything other than Inipi, so I thought that this would be something that perhaps more of you would be interested in doing, so hope to see lots of you at either or both of these events!

Join Our Tiyospaye For a Health and Help Inipi to Pray For and Honor Ina Maka

The Lodge and tipi in Indian Creek

We only have Open Ceremonies, so all are welcome, but please read the post "Hau Mitakolas and Welcome New Members" on the Message Boards before you RSVP, and if you had any questions or concerns before reading this, most if not all will be answered in the post, and let me know if you have any that weren't. I'll light the Fire around 8:30, we'll load the Chanuppa(s) around 11:30, and we'll crawl in to Pray around noon (all times are Indian Time/Later O'clock). Jolene, our Head Fireman, won't be able to attend, so hopefully we'll have an alternate Fireman RSVP, and if not, I'll ask all who are here if you would like to learn how to carry the Inyans and tend the Fire. If you would like the Honor of tying the 100 Red Ties +/or the 7 Robes, let me know and I'll get back to you with more details. If you RSVP and then can't make it, please let me know so that we won't wait for you to show up before loading the Chanuppa(s). Since I'm trying to keep these announcements much more brief, you can read past announcements for lots more info. I do send an email out to all who have RSVP'd a couple of days before Inipi with more details, so if you've RSVP'd by Thur 3/21, you should receive it on Fri 3/22, and I also post it on the Message Boards. There are 3 of us going to Denver March Pow Wow Sat 3/23, so if you want to join us, let me know, and I have room for 2 more in my truck. Looking forward to seeing you all here for Inipi, and maybe at Pow Wow, and wicozani waste' till then. Mitakuye Oyasin
