The short & sweet of it all….

The woman told the warrior, “The Cannunpa has no honor, but when the One who holds It learns the love for all children as a mother does, then the Cannunpa becomes Sacred.
When you put the pipe(Cannunpa Wakan) forward with that understanding and with the desire for peace within your heart, then the Cannunpa will become Sacred.”
This is the caring that must live in the heart of a man, but you must also protect the pipe.
A man who places himself above a woman has no right to hold the pipe, for he can never understand the caring for a child, as he cannot understand the caring that a mother holds within her heart.


So for all you AIM boyz, Arvol Looking Horse, Crow Dog, Phil Lane Jr…I say boyz, because there is not a real man among you….read this & weep, for yourselves & all abusers of the Sacred for personal profit & embellishment…

None of you, NONE of YOU, have the right to conduct ceremony or hold a Cannunpa.
