Indigenous Spiritual Teachings for Building a Peaceful and Harmonious World

Summer of Peace 2013 > Planetary Peace > Indigenous Wisdom
Broadcast on July 02, 2013
With Faith Spotted Eagle & Chief Darrell Bob & Sun Dance Chief Rueben George

Faith Spotted Eagle

Founding Grandmother of the Brave Heart Society

Faith Spotted Eagle is a founding grandmother of the Brave Heart Society, supervised by a group of community grandmothers called the Unci Circle, which is dedicated to restoring endangered and lost cultural practices to heal the wounds endured by the Lakota, Nakota and Dakota peoples. This process of restoration is decidedly community-driven: “We can’t wait for someone to do right by us, so we have to do it ourselves. I think our prophecies with our native people have indicated that there will be a time when we absolutely have to stand up, and this is that time.”
