Native American traditions of healing for spirit, environment: Nanish Shontie

Nanish Shontie is a new Native American community based in Monmouth, Oregon. (click here for map). The son of the late Rolling Thunder, Mala Spotted Eagle, was guided to Oregon to establish the Nanish Shontie community. They will be doing workshops and sharing medicine traditions -- all to help people learn how to be good care takers of mother earth. They will not charge for medicine traditions. They do not view themselves as having "the answer," and are interested in working with environmental groups and all people of all spiritual backgrounds.

Nanish Shontie is a native phrase meaning "to ask the creator for a blessing." It's an inter-tribal, inter-racial native guided community and healing center based upon Native American traditions and way of life.

Mala Spotted Eagle was on KPFK's "Something's Happening" at midnight today. Here's the recording. Unfortunately, I missed the first 5 minutes of the program. However, what's here is fascinating and of use to anyone interested in what Native Americans are doing.

If you would like to know more about them, to go their website, Nanish.org. Their contact information is located here.

The mp3 file is 8.5 megabytes. The program runs for just under 50 minutes.
