  2. So, for all of you involved in this ruse about the Pte Hincala Cannunpa Kin, all I want to point out is…the first thing Paula Horn did was get in touch with AIM murderer, Carter Camp… who has stated in recent interviews he never felt more alive than when AIM was murdering AIM supporters during the Seige of Wounded Knee.
    And, Paula obviously was not aware Floyd Hand Sr participated in FFC’s White Buffalo Calf Pipe Revival ceremonies & accompanying Sun Dances 1970-1975 with FFC & my Father, & that I was definately not talking about Floyd Hand Jr, with his criminal backround check showing he was imprisoned for murder, & he has molested women around AIM so-called ceremonies…
    If you look at Vivian High Elk & her self-serving self importance, you can see why she thinks they (Arvol’s camp) should have the entitlement of the donations Arvol & Paula Horn canvass from around the world with their Pte Hincala Cannunpa scam to live off of!!!
    Welker, a poser like so many Pro-AIM supporters…
    Bone Shirt…well, I just call Alfred, “Whichever Way The Wind Blows”….!
    Vivian High Elk has little or no respect for her Lakota Elders, like Marie…who gives her deathbed confession about the Calf Pipe before she died, to set the story straight…& Vivian disses her for doing so, calling Marie a liar.
    At the end of the day…all their self serving lies are coming undone, being replaced with the truth.
    That is how the Sacred actually works.
    They may have been laughing at me in 2006, and saying horrible things about my character, my Father…. & what I was entrusted with to bring forward for ALL OF MANKIND, but they sure are not laughing now, eh???
    Frank Fools Crow’s Ceremonial Sun Dance Cannunpa, says Arvol…?
    Well, that will do just fine, since FFC’s Sun Dance Cannunpa, the catlinite Calf Pipe was right under AIMs nose all the time…& was exactly what AIM was searching for, but never got their greedy hands on.

    Two canupa prophets visit Fort Peck with message

    Fort Peck Journal News

    Volume: 2008, Issue 7: 2008-02-14

    Written by Louis Montclair

    Through the canupa (pipe) will the Sioux nation survive hard times to come, said two Lakota speakers who came to Fort Peck this week.

    Jake Arapaho, of Pine Ridge, S.D., and Jason Charger, of Cheyenne River, S.D., are on the Fort Peck Reservation this week as part of what they call “spreading the message” throughout Indian Country.

    According to Charger, their message of healing and culture will be very important for hard times to come because it will unite the Lakota/Dakota/Nakota people again.

    “[Our message is to] create healing through the canupa for future generations,” Charger said.

    The two men travel through Indian Country spreading that message of hope and peace at all places they visit.

    It all started in Green Grass, S.D. – home of the sacred white buffalo calf pipe – and from there it spread to all neighboring reservations and soon reached tribes in other states, Charger said.

    In the prophecies through the elders many years ago, they spoke of hard times that would fall upon people, which could be anything, he said. It will make the people come together, he said.

    Speaking at a gathering at the Greet the Dawn Building in Poplar, Arapaho said that there are many reasons they came to Fort Peck, one of them being the misuse of the Lakota way of life.

    “We are people of mother earth and it’s our responsibility to take care of mother earth,” Arapaho said.

    One of the misuses he spoke of was the use of the canupa and the devastating effects it can have. There are laws that you have to walk and obey to carry the canupa and some people who do so are only hurting their own people.

    When he was younger, Arapaho said that he had arteries that were 65 percent clogged. He was big then, and he had an uncle who was bigger than him, but had a perfect bill of health.

    Arapaho was going to go to the hospital but his uncle warned him against it, saying that white doctors test their drugs on Indian people. He remembered that his father was given some pills years ago that ate holes in his kidneys and because of that, he was on dialysis for years until he died.

    Instead, his uncle told him to go to the traditional canupa and inipi ceremony, which he attributed to the reason he had good health. At the inipi ceremony, he said that he felt something that was like a jolt of electricity hit his heart.

    After the ceremony, he was told to go to the white doctors for an examination.

    When he went, they told him they were going to put a balloon in his veins to remove the clogs in his arteries. But when they checked, he said they found no problems in his arteries or heart.

    “If you follow your ways, you will be around for years to come,” Arapaho said.

    In several other ceremonies after that, different spirits told him the same thing: the canupa ceremony is a root that is getting soft and smaller. He asked them how to make the root strong and hard again, and they told him they must get people together, and unity will make it better.

    That was when Charger and Arapaho started traveling Indian Country spreading the message of the canupa.

    According to Lakota culture, long ago the White Buffalo Woman appeared to the people and gave them a pipe and bundle. Looking Horse is the man that the pipe is entrusted to today.

    The sacred pipe is still with the Looking Horse family in Green Grass, S.D., the site where the pipe was given to the Lakota people. Today it is considered one of the holiest sites for the Lakota people.

    Charger and Arapaho met when Arapaho received a call from Looking Horse one day, telling him to come to his home right away. Though it was a three hour drive, he made it there and seen a busted window in his trailer and no food in the house. He went to town and later he went into a sweat and met Charger. It was during a sweat in Green Grass they were told to spread the message of the canupa throughout Indian Country.

    Arapaho said that there are many rumors going around about Looking Horse that are not true, such as that he sold the sacred pipe or he buried it somewhere.

    Another reason they came to Fort Peck was to seek help for Looking Horse, who is currently having a very rough time all around.

    “People don’t know what he has to go through to make ends meet,” Charger said. “As Lakota Dakota people, it’s our responsibility to help him,”

    If the pipe keeper has hardships and dies, then the White Buffalo Calf pipe could also go away, Charger said.

    It’s through the pipe that we can change our future and reunite as a nation. It’s only when we stand together that we can heal and move forward to a better future, he said.

    But first, they must reach the young people.

    One of the consequences of forgetting the traditional ways of the canupa ceremony is jealousy, hatred, and backstabbing, Arapaho said.

    Charger said he encourages all people on Fort Peck to attend the Sundance at Green Grass and learn what he learned when he was there.

    The canupa can bring peace to the Sioux people. The canupa is the key to healing, and the man who turns that key is Looking Horse.

    The canupa ceremony can help people, but for it to help the people, there has to be a change, and part of that change must also be helping the current sacred pipe carrier with his troubles.

    Looking Horse does need help, and that’s one of the reasons they came to Fort Peck – to seek help of the Fort Peck people. It’s everyone’s responsibility as a pipe carrier and as Lakota Dakota Nakota people to help Looking Horse, since the pipe was given to the Sioux people.

    Before they left, they told the people who braved the cold weather that they would be back sometimes this year to reaffirm their message with the Fort Peck people.

    If you would like to help Looking Horse, contact Charger at 1 (605) 964-4526 or (605) 200-0003. Arapaho can be reached at (650) 441-9886.

  5. From a person in the know…:
    Hello,

    I just read this of all my mail I was drawn to it first. I have never heard of this woman before in my life, the one on the net giving blessings from WBCP Winyan for $$$$. I find it so hard to believe that no one has come forward to expose this.
    It’s why we get all these people mixed up and confused and they don’t know who to believe. I found it interesting that this woman is making these claims now, since the first whisper of this fraud came from someone named Looking Back Woman.

    Now, more than ever, I think the truth needs to be told and told again and again and again. Until people begin to see through the bull crap and finally realize we are often led by our noses, because we don’t take responsibility for our own walk in life.

    However, one word of advice. From one who knows first-hand. Do not waste your energy on posts you see on the net, or get into one-on-one battles about lies and statements that are made there. They always use that tactic of getting people to do that, knowing that causes one to react and to fight to stop their lies, and to have them corrected immediately. It doesn’t work that way on the net. Oh, eventually, we win. But we spend so much time wasting good energy on lawyers and writing letters and losing energy fighting stupid battles.

    Just keep telling the truth. Make mention of those who are outright lying but not too often, because that’s what they want. They want to confuse the issues, make the person, (you) look like a liar, a crazy person, a fraud, etc., and believe me Sister, they are good at it. The dark shadows are not easy to fight. It hurts and it takes time, but eventually the truth wins out. I know this first-hand and from others who have experienced it as well.

    Hang in there, the truth shall prevail.

  6. Here is a good read for you from Vivian High Elk where she says ALH does not have the original Cannunpa Wakan there at Green Grass….so what???

    Hello my relatives, I am forwarding this information, I dont know what this woman’s (LBW) worry is when she doesn’t even live around here and believes we worship a false sacred object. If this were so, why in the first place would Cheyenne River place this on their flag as a significance that it exists and is here in Green Grass and what is her argument? Dont you think they would’ve known this if this history lie recorded as they had Indian Agents that overseen everything as this Tribe is based under the auspices of the United States Government as a puppet? In todays life, to get anything back that the whiteman and their forked tongue promised is to have a “language, culture and history.” This woman really wants to belittle our whole Nation here along with my late father. We are a poor people, barely in existence with our language, history (cannupa) and culture (cannupa) that are the basis for our everyday survival for funding to the Trust status imposed on us. Besides all cannupa’s are sacred and so what if don’t have the real or original one here, what we do have is still sacred as hteir has been some miracles and my late relatives had strong beliefs in it here. Why would the Late Fools Crow come here to Green Grass and pray at the sacred site before they departed out of Green Grass? Her statements are invalidating Fools Crow’s belief, yet she holds his cannupa she claims he gifted her? I dont want to argue her anymore, she claims to be a KEEPER of a sacredness and still full of spite and hate. She obviously doesn’t carry the values in her message and probably doesn’t live it like a virtue, obviously she is ignorant herself, she doesn’t know the life we live here as a people whom worship this way of life whom hold this Cannupa in high esteem. I guess the question is are we all fools for what we believe in here as how she is portraying us? We are a Warrior people, that is why we are still in existence no matter how we were are/were put down like people like this LBW woman. Pila ma ya pi le lawapi ki. Vivian High Elk

  8. More lies from ALH, as the truth is revealed:
    Arvol Looking Horse Response Letter to Dakota Lakota Journal

    June 28, 2007
    I would like to respond to Alfred Bone Shirt & Vivian High Elk’s article in the June 15, 2007 in the Dakota/Lakota Journal, talking about the traditions and sacred way of life towards the “C’anupa”.
    First of all I would like to say that on June 21st World Peace & Prayer Day and Honor Sacred Sites Day was a success, people all over the world praying together in their own ways and own Sacred Sites. All nations, all faiths, one prayer is respecting each other’s traditions culture and religions. There is one creator and one grandmother earth that we all share. We have gone all over the world once a year to pray with other Indigenous Nations at their Sacred Sites and to the United Nations to talk about prophecies and we as the first nations have committed ourselves to maintaining our sacred way of life.
    This year we traveled to Teotihuacan, Mexico City, Mexico. To offer prayers to different Sacred Sites and pray at a place where over a thousand young people were massacred in 1968.
    We had a run to Teotihuacan. We asked for volunteers to run and we said that we would help to raise $1,500 for each individual for the following items: passport, running gear, etc, but because of the immigration controversy nobody stepped forward and no money was raised towards this effort. Just me and the family ran with the local runners in Mexico.
    The other Pipestone Run on our Wolakota website was coordinated by Allen Hare and Paul Rouse Sr. family. Paul Rouse Sr. has gone back to the spirit world and the family honored me last year by giving me a brown van and the family said that the young boys would continue running for their late father. So there were two runs that we were involved with in support of prayers. Their information with where to send their support funds was posted on the website; no money was raised through wolakota! Anyone can go and see that information for themselves.
    We returned from a beautiful ceremony in Mexico City, a place which was governed by the state, this year is the first year that we have lead our staffs into the center of Teotihuacan to do our ceremony. World Peace and Prayer Day opened that door to allow a ceremony to take place as it did for Devils Tower aka Grey Horn Butte in 1996.
    After reading what was printed in the newspaper, an ongoing confusion which started on the Rosebud reservation on October 21, 2006 where a traditional Treaty meeting took place. A resolution/petition that was drafted by Vivian High Elk, Martina Looking Horse, Stacey Low Dog and Alfred Bone Shirt was presented, but tabled and not accepted by the elders in attendance at the meeting. Floyd Hand stated this fact in his Lakota Journal interview last October about this controversy. Since that time their attacks were very strong, so I had little choice but to put the sacred C’anupa away. I am the only one that knows where it’s at. So I put it under ground and now today that grass has covered it. When the time is right, I will bring it back up.
    The Keeper before me, my grand mother Lucy, put it away like that when she had to pick potatoes in Nebraska to survive when no longer the People supported her and also during the Wounded Knee era when our ways were outlawed, that was done. Pte San Win spirit and help is still with us all as we experience in our ongoing ceremonies, but this is what I was instructed to do when problems come to the Bundle itself.
    At the age of 12 years old I was given that responsibility by my grandmother Lucy Bad Warrior Looking Horse and she told me that I would be the last keeper of this C’anupa. During this time there was so much prophecies coming in time like the Eagle and the Condor, the White Buffalo Calf and all of the animals showing their sacred color and we must be the voice for the animal nations.
    There will be many false prophets; there will be a lot of earth changes and climate changes, which would affect our lives and our way of life. This spirit bundle, which I take care of, was handed down through generations and because it is a spirit bundle it chooses it’s Keeper. But many people have died protecting our Sacred Sites and ceremonies.
    My father (Stanley Looking Horse Sr.) would go to the Sacred Sites and pray with his C’anupa and as a young boy; I would go along with him to help him. He helped me understand as a boy the importance of Sacred Sites, as we are losing them to tourist attractions, people selling them and farmers. Growing up in those times, some places we were not allowed to conduct our ceremonies. I hope and pray that some day people would respect our Sacred Sites like the Sacred Pipestone quarries in Minnesota or Bear Butte in the Sacred Black Hills, where people are trying to make a Saloon.
    Our struggles continue today protecting our Sacred Sites. But the women who are my relatives have caused a lot of confusion, since that meeting in Rosebud and up to the more recent article by Vivian High Elk & Alfred Bone Shirt. Two traditional laws have been broken. The first law is that our Lakota/Dakota/Nakota Oyate is a patriarchal society and the (women) shouldn’t have ever overstepped the traditional headsmen that tabled their resolution in October 26, 2006 and posted it to the public as if it were passed and agreed upon. The second law, in our tradition is when a woman was with a Non-Indian, they would have no voice within our nation to speak publicly about our traditions, but they could still pray and be among our people. So this stated in our treaties by our ancestors. This is what I would like to remind our people of.
    And for my sister Martina Looking Horse, I hope that she can go to treatment, as many of our people have done to turn around their life and get some help, because she’s been using since the 70’s and yet she tries to be a voice for the Looking Horse family. My family can tell you that she has never been on a vision quest or has Sun Danced. My concern is her use has caused constant misbehavior with the viscous and untrue words she does publicly; goes against our traditions and misrepresents our family.
    This whole conflict is happening because of money that these individuals think should go to them personally and to others they convinced of their hardship that is due, any money raised is for what efforts wolakota was created for and the people involved in those efforts. There are other state and non-profit organizations that help the concerns they have and have helped them. They can also spend their energy on their concerns and creating their own program, instead their energy to attack people.
    I run ceremonies and my other half sits with my C’anupa in ceremonies, so when did it become tradition to break up families or use jealousy over children in the arguments in the public, because they are not directly related. In our culture we never used the word “step” this or that, when we accept a child or person as a part of our family. They were always a part of our own tios’paye, family. This is what was taught to me by my Grandmother and parents, as they too accepted people in our family hoop.
    In our tradition the eagle feather is the high honor among our people, because it is the main thing that we must all hold to be a part of any ceremony. If we drop an eagle feather we have no choice, but to pray to our grand father and the Grandmother earth. There are protocols for any sacred item and as a spiritual person, we take care of them or even how we speak about them.
    So when we talk about the sacred C’anupa we should remember the words of Pte San Win, the White buffalo Calf Woman, a spirit woman; that only the good shall see the C’anupa and that the bad should not even see it or touch it. Since the meeting in Rosebud, Alfred Bone Shirt and them have threatened to get the C’anupa and to give it to someone else, so I must listen to what was passed down in knowledge when these things happen.
    I struggle just like anyone else to pay to live in this society and survive. I have chosen to survive by speaking of what our work is about, as many of our own people that have earned that voice in being asked to speak of education in many areas that concern our people. But I will always stand by the protecting our sacred way of life, that the blood of our people is not for sale as in our sacred stone and as well as our ceremonies, my responsibility that comes with this position.
    Our traditional ways are very strict. Today people are fasting and Sun Dancing. During this time of our most important ceremonies where people are looking for good health, it was always said to watch our words, as words are sacred, they can do more damage then good to a Nation and also misrepresent who we are as a People. Young People read these things and this also goes down in history, this behavior makes our Nation look bad, these are issues, traditionally that should have been handled in a more respectful way instead of going out there in the world. Our native newspapers should be a part of this too and check out whether it is true or good for people to read.
    Once again, I will tell our people that once you go into that (Sun Dance) circle, you stay in there for four days and fulfill your commitment. Our people can be strong people!
    I would like to thank all of the people for listening to the few words that I have to say today. Thank you very much.

    Nothing is more real than the woman’s superiority.
    It is they who really maintain the tribe, the nobility of blood, the geological
    tree, the order of generations and conservation of families.
    In them resides all the real authority: the lands, the fields and all their harvest
    belong to them; they are the soul of the councils, the arbiters of peace and war,
    they hold all the taxes and public treasure; it is to them that the slaves are entrusted;
    they arrange the marriages; the children are under their authority; and the order of succession is founded on THEIR blood….
    The Council of Elders which transacts all the business does not work for itself.
    It seems that they serve only to represent and aid the women in the matters in which decorum does not permit the latter to appear or act….
    The women choose their chiefs among their maternal brothers or their own children.
