    ALGONQUIN ELDER MIKE BASTINE: Sacred Waters Hold Earth's Destiny in the Balance

    in Religion

    ?Now, those unfamiliar with Native American spirituality may hear things you may think are just nuts but consider this: Why did Smithsanian/Harvard Astrophysicist Rudy Schilds come to the Elders several years ago, wanting to know where WE, a bunch of blanket Indians, got OUR information? We have had Rudy's attention for several years now. NOW, more and more academics are getting a clue, and a few are getting panicky... and are asking privately what do we do next? Mike tells them, "We would be glad to share the answers with you, but the answers are not market driven, so you might not like the answers!"


    The answers may just lie in one simple "break glass when all hope seems lost" ceremony Mad Bear shared with Mike long ago. 


    Mike Bastine is an Algonquin who was Mad Bear Anderson's what white folks call "apprentice" but what Injuns call "shit boy." He hung around with the Tuscarora Seer Mad Bear's household so much that he became family to Mad Bear. That was 40 years ago. 


    Nowadays, Mike is STILL Learning from the seeming "everyday" experiences that occured 40 years ago. Every once in a while, Mike has an "ah hah" moment as Creator reveals something "new" that he was shown 40 years ago.

    ADRIAN ESPOSITO: Prolific Young Social Issues Filmmaker

    in Religion

    https://espocinema.wordpress.com/about/


    Algonquin Elder Mike Bastine will possibly also join us tonight.


    Adrian Esposito is a young prolific filmmaker. He is 26 years old and has already made seven films many of which have won awards.  Adrian’s films tend to focus on social issues and subjects that have faced significant challenges in life.  Diagnosed as having autism as a child, Adrian has faced many challenges of his own.  His history includes dealing with many educational and social barriers but he remains positive focusing on his talents and strengths rather than limitations.


    “Inspired by his love of film, Adrian began to take classes at The Animation Workshop at Animatus Studio in Rochester when he was 12 years old. This study opened a door for him. He found a way to express himself using the vocabulary and the medium of film,” writes journalist Jim Memmott in an article about Adrian Esposito in the Rochester Democrat & Chronicle (Oct 18, 2008).  In 2008, Adrian received his certificate in Radio & Television Broadcasting from Monroe #1 BOCES EMCC.  He continues to study filmmaking with Animatus Studio.


    Adrian feels that his Autism works well with his filmmaking. “People with this disorder tend to hyper focus on an area of interest, my interest area has always been movies,” says Adrian.

    ALGONQUIN ELDER MIKE BASTINE: 3 Days of Darkness, 4 Serpents, Sacred Feminine​

    in Religion

    ALGONQUIN ELDER MIKE BASTINE: 3 Days of Darkness, 4 Serpents, Sacred Feminine?


    Mike will be appearing at the Eco Spirit Conference in Niagara Falls September 27 and 28, 2014 at the Conference and Event Center Niagara Falls, Niagara Falls, New York. The way modern humans go about living their lives is polluting Mother Earth. Global pollution. Global warming. Climate change. Have we as the human race gone over the edge and out of control.


    Mother Earth knows what to do, and she is doing what she needs to do to remain in balance. It’s we human beings who don’t know what we’re doing.


    There was a time when our ancestors lived their lives on Mother Earth in purity and simplicity, in the midst of all creation, sharing in the joy of life with the animals, the rocks and the trees under the blue sky, the sun, the moon and the stars. 


    We have been brainwashed into believing the modern way in which we live is normal.  It is not normal.  It is out of balance with nature.  It is wrong, and many of us know and feel there is something wrong.


    How did we get to this place of increased pollution in our atmosphere, waste in our rivers, toxins in our soil, superstorms and rising ocean levels? Did we assume Mother Earth somehow could indefinitely assimilate all the pollutants and toxins modern humans have put into her system


    Did we fail, for generations, to comprehend what we have been doing to ourselves? What brought us here, and how can we turn this around to once again see and feel  the beauty on our planet?
