For years and years, notification after notification, children have reported sexual abuse from so called healers, medicine men, activists, indian study academic guru’s, etc., who are continuously allowed to pretend being advocates for preservation of 1st Nations identity, cultural traits and beliefs.
Yep, community members go silent, tribal health care workers go silent, tribal law enforcement go silent about such abuses while they all continue to put icing on the horrors and project everything is peachy for the lives that have been ruined, for the culture that has been ruined, for the beliefs and traditions that have been ruined, while those same continue to mask such illness prance about saying how their world views and ideologies will help the non-tribal communities to advance with healing.
People like Michael Dahl, Eddie Benton Banais, Leonard Crow Dog, etc. and so called academic grand poo pah’s should have, in many instances, faced judges and the judiciary system for their sexual acts against children, in place of being shifted from this position to that position, in some instances with promotions while their sick actions are passed along to the next generation of followers.
All of those same smucks want to call for federal funding , grant monies to address violence against women, sex trafficking, child abuse, alcoholism and substance abuse, mental illness. Those who speak up against such sickness are blundered, forced out of employment, stripped of services from the tribes, and degraded along with their family members.
It Is what it Is , Hate has No Logic!

Calling Child Sex Abuse a Personal Matter is about as WEAK as calling Acts of Terrorism work space violence. Lets practice the Peace and Tolerance B.S OR GE BLUNDERED !
Not unexpected from people who have had their world views and ideologies altered by the American Indian Movement Old Guard Mentality and fear being blundered as the teachings of AIM dictates when cash crop icons are threatened and called out to be accountable and responsible for VIOLENT SICK ACTIONS ….
Wino is just as much an enabler as those who are too weak to voice out sickness for what it is.
How about a peacemaker and sentencing circle to establish bonding between the pedophile sicko’s and the children they have assaulted , just great for addressing the trauma seeded into the child’s soul , eh?
Q: Where does a child turn after community, health services, law enforcement have turned a deaf ear and blind eye to justice for the sickness and hatred witnessed by those children?
A: Alone in a dark corner of their room , trying to figure out why their life is so meaningless to those who are suppose to be protecting them.
Looking for a way out of Life because of the Betrayal !

Caution to those who try to hold people accountable and responsible for their actions, or be the next to be shoved out of the Door, falsely arrested, along with other attempts to blunder you into submission.
These same working groups of so called Spirituality and Healing now want to bring such B.S to the doorstep of U.S Veterans and other non-tribal community needs (main-stream america) for Mental Illness/Wellness Healing.

**** end update ****
Saturday Night Live Comedian AL and Rick Nolan’s push for increase of Veterans Services and Rural Mental Health Services has taken on a new TWIST …. Wellness Groups with WRAP agenda’s that equate to Shake and Bake, Traveling Medicine Men concoction cures that can fix anything from dry spells to toe corns! , under the pretense of, and coined as “Holistic Healing” , which is the modern times and trends of cultural appropriation of ancestry’s teachings that have been twisted over the years by the pan ameircan and new age identity altering scripts.
“Our organization is committed to weaving Wellness Recovery Action Planning into the fabric of our system of care, so we can provide alternatives and a holistic framework to support individuals through their journey towards wellness and recovery.” ~Copeland Center for Wellness and Recovery – Developer of WRAP~
Seinfeld – Holistic Healer Scene for your Journey, as per the end of the video , to the hospital, nut house or grave, if one does not conform to acceptance of the peace and tolerance programming.
More Shake and Bake to assist the Veterans and non-tribal community
Seriously, the Soldiers of this county that continue to witness the mental anguish from action from their services DO_NOT need such B.S that has been administered to NDN Country since the 70’s.
Especially from those within the Nations who have Totally Failed the Youth while pursuing their careers of recognition and grandeur at the expense of enabling the total breakdown of family structure in our communities because of their silence.
These posers who claim to be representatives of Ancestry’s Expectations, are right in line with that Syrian Peddlers Son who re-branded the American Indian Movement by creating LastRealIndians / LR Inspire.
If anyone believes Rick Nolan and Al Franken who sit under the umbrella of James Abourezk are_not_aware of what is happening OR believe those same, are_not_promoting the continuance since the 70’s, of the same crap onto Native Communities , with the intent to bring such Sick Chit onto Main Stream America …. Do Your HomeWork !!!!
Wellness in the Woods fb dialog , worth a review
Joe Wade: in closing you say “We do not offer spiritual teachings only connect individuals and communities with resources”
that is such a line of deception, here is one of your promoted events through working groups, you should add to the place matt a UFO object for this shake and bake concoction of new age native teachings with the abalone shell for smudging, asema medicine pouch, and whatever other spices of superstition laid on that matt within that circle of paper plates with fluffy words for seduction.
please re-check your evidence based ethical practice barometer , it is very evident you are a few bars above zero with all this craziness.
Lot of Wellness and Healing Going on eh?

How about getting back to the basics by remembering
when spirituality is abused, Illness follows ….

One thing is certain with cultural appropriators, whether tribal or non , they hang together and take no prisoners, everyone is game from the child to Vet to the Elder.
