    DAN ARELLANO & CHIEF RUFUS DAVIS on the "Texas Rising" mini series"

    in Business

    Statement of Dan Arellano, "On Saturday June 13, 2015 at the Mexican-American Cultural Center in Austin we met with scholars to discuss the mini series “Texas Rising,”  It is my own opinion that the series reeked of Anglo Superiority, and American exceptionalism and that’s after forcing myself to view the episodes, but truthfully I refuse to see the remainder, I have had enough. When you have people like Ann Coulter demonizing an entire nation you have to wonder what her  and the History Channels motives are or is all this nothing but Tea Party politics; didn’t our governor just allocate 800 million for border security? Also the History Channel is no more about history than Fox News is about the news."

    Dan Arellano has been an activist for almost 40 years. He was a member of the Austin Optimist Club. He is a member of the Tejanos in Action and a past commander of this Veterans Organization. He is also a professional actor appearing in Machete Kills along side Cuba Gooding Jr in a speaking role. He is also the Co-Host of the Eddie Arevalo Spotlite Show. He is currently lecturing at the Bob Bullock Texas History Museum in Austin.
    He has been doing the reenactment of the Battle of Medina in Losoya Texas.
    Dan Arellano Author/Historian
    President Battle of Medina Historical Society

    CHIEF RUFUS DAVIS discussed the recent walk out from the set of the Adam Sandler movie by Native American actors. The actors refused to participate realizing their ancestors were being portrayed as ignorant savages. We discussed how proud we all were at the heroic gesture from these actors. He also reminded us that Mexicans are also indigenous and he encouraged us to be proud of our roots. We also discussed our own Tejano re-enactors and how they continue to participate not realizing they are helping to perpetuate a myth, especially the myth of the Alamo.

    SiGnOtHeTiMeS w Queen Tahiyrah & the OSDSI Ile in Cincinnati Ohio What is BEMBE?

    in Motivation

    TONIGHT 4/17/15 6PM EST THE CINCINNATI ILE OF OBAFEMI IFAYEMI DIVINE STUDY of IFA WILL BE ON SIGN O THE TIMES speaking about an upcoming event in Cincinnati, Ohio set for 4/25/15 PLEASE JOIN US.....  Chief Obafemi Ifayemi Epega, the Mayegun of Ode Remo, Nigeria

    Bembé: The Rhythm of the Saints
    A bembé is a party for the orishas. During a bembé the orishas are praised, saluted and entreated 
    to join the party through `mounting' one of the priests or priestesses in attendance. This is done 
    through a confluence of the song, rhythm, and movement, all calling to the orisha in such a way 
    that the orisha will recognise themselves in the lyrics, rhythms and dances as they have been 
    performed for them for perhaps thousands of years.

    The rhythms play an important part of the equation and the drummers practice assiduously for years 
    to be able to play the intricate rhythms correctly. This is important since the drums are actually 
    speaking to the orishas as the Yoruba language is a tonal one and the drums are tuned in such a way 
    as to play the tones of Yoruba speech. For this reason some rhythms are never played unless it is 
    in religious context as it would offend the orisha. These rhythms are actually prayers to the 
    deities with each orisha having its own rhythms associated with them.

    Dance also becomes prayer in the religious context of a bembé. The movements of the dances are the 
    same motions associated with the orishas for thousands of years. As with the rhythms played on the 
    drums, each orisha has its own dances with Yemayá's dance emulating the motion of the waves, Ogún's 
    chopping with his machete, Oshún's portraying her primping in front of her hand held mirror, etc.
