This Sunday, we will be discussing the need for cultural/spiritual opportunities in this countries prisons, and a need for transitional support upon release of our relatives. Ever since the first sweat lodge appeared behind prison walls in Nebraska in the early 70's, this issue has been well litigated in state and federal courts. Even Amnesty International has examined these cases.
In 1982, the warden at the Oklahoma State Penitentiary compared Native culture/spirituality to the Aryan Brotherhood and the Ku Klux Klan in denying permission to form a cultural group as mandated by court orders. By the 90's, sweat lodge was allowed at many prisons, and the right to wear long hair had been fought and won, but the real battle remains. What is there for Native prisoners upon their release?
In the past ten years the Muscogee Nation has began their Reintegration program and others have began to develop their own. This week I met with the Choctaw Nation and was asked to begin to gather information and data to create a program for reintegration. For myself, this was a milestone in my life as I had asked the Choctaw Nation to do this 30 years ago.
We all have families, loved ones and friends in prison. We hope the best for them upon their release, but it is a long road back with a type of PTSD from existing in months - years within a violent and dangerous environment. Employment becomes difficult without marketable skills and coping without life skills makes it stressful that sometimes one just gives up and resorts to old habits that reduces a sense of self-worth.
We'll discuss these and many other issues in the two hours we have this weekend. Plan to listen in and share with your friends!

William Louis Harvey, a nom de plume, worked in California during the era of the California medical malpractice insurance crisis, as well as afterwards, when the MICRA law took effect, limiting the monetary awards for "pain and suffering" in trial verdicts. He also chaired a committee that reviewed all malpractice claims involving a major California hospital. Harvey continues to follow the national attempt to control the costs ofmedical malpractice litigation, known as Tort Reform.While Malpractice! The Novel, is a work of fiction, it is rooted in the personal experiences and first hand knowledge Harvey acquired during his years on the front lines of the clash between the medical and legal professions. Details of some of the cases he experienced are engraved in his memory, and small portions of these find their way into the novel—probably a ccommon occurrence with writers of realistic fiction. Malpractice! the Novel refers to Tort Reform ( a tort, in civil law, is a wrongful act ). Harvey, like many others, believes that California’s MICRA law is a good model for national Tort Reform, with modification.

Mani said: "This is an introduction of the Strong Heart Warrior Society. Identity is of the original Dog Solider Society. Its originality is with the Lakota Nation and is the oldest of its kind. Many societies claim to be for their people, but few proved themselves and remain worthy of their people's trust. The Strong Heart Dog Soldier Society will remain. We are past, present, and forever. This brief mission statement gives credence to our traditional concepts. This society is alcohol- and drug-free. As a society with its own values of its kind, we are here. We are forever."

A 13th generation Diiyin (HolyOne), Maria began her training at the heels of her grandfather, Quero Apache poet and snake clan priest, Juan Ten Bears Yraceburu. Following an extensive apprenticeship under his guidance, she also was tutored by Matthew King of the Lakota, Phillip Cassadore of the Apache, Buffalo Jim of the Seminole, and Rolling Thunder of the Cherokee/Shoshone.
During college she worked with her advisor Meredith Kane in merging the native healing rites she had learned, with clinical psychology, for the healing of women who had been sexually abused as children. This merger has unfolded to become what is now known as Applied Ecopsychology and is practiced throughout the world.
Maria is founder of FollowingAncestors, and it's non profit partner EarthWisdom. Both organizations work deligently to present ways for individuals to heal and reconnect with the forces of nature and spirit. Her articles have been published in over 25 different countries, and her books Legends and Prophecies of the Quero Apache (Bear & Co, 2002) and Prayers and Meditations of the Quero Apache (Bear & Co, 2004) introduce us to the fine and powerful traditional teachings that speak of these times of evolution.
Maria can speak with authority on these subjects... she grew up in them, and lives them daily. "My uncles, my forefathers, have said, 'This is the way it is done. Keep it up. Teach others that come, so that they will carry this forward. When you have that connection in your heart it will always carry forward." - from Legends and Prophecies of the Quero Apache Natural Health: Lessons from the wheel of life: bridging the gap
