Native American Prophetic Medicine Man

The Prophetic Medicine Man

Here I sit 20 years after leaving Arizona and my friend Willie Whitefeather, a Cherokee medicine man.

We had many long conversations in the desert and in my small apartment. It was a strange buy strong bond we had, Willie a Native American and myself a Viking.

Our belief systems had a great deal in common.

I look back now and see some of the things we talked about, have come to pass and as Willie used to say, "What goes around, comes around."

I took a few notes on our conversations in a steno pad. As I look at these notes now, I wish I had written more.

At age 70 plus, I see the world differently than I did when I was younger.

When I watch the News and see what a bad place we have moved into, I think of Willie's
conversations and how the pompous asses running our government and the world could use what he said to make it a better world.

Better than that, they should bring him to the UN and let him speak.

Here are some odds and ends from our conversations that you may find interesting ---- and give yourself time to reflect and think about these things.

Who Are the Real Bad Guys?

When the Tennessee Valley Authority flooded the little Tennessee Valley to make Tellico Damn, they not only destroyed the most important religious and historic sites of the Cherokee, they destroyed the very core of their "nature!"

But they also disturbed the Cherokee graves, The remains of 15,000 Cherokee graves, remains of a people who believe above all in the sanctity of the dead ----- were put in shoe boxes and stored in a basement at the University of Tennessee.

And those 15,000 graves were only 3 % of all the Indian graves in the valley. The rest were flooded. To ad insult to injury, remains belonging to all non - Indians, who would be disturbed by the flooding, were immediately re-buried.

Willie says, "The Last - B - First."

"Someday when we learn ---------- The Cherokee Nation will return," is a line from a popular song.

" tell you these things for I see that we can no longer do anything we want to do -------- without a backlash."

Odin once told his people you cannot drop a pebble into the ocean without the waves it forms reaching to Asgard and Valhalla.

The 21st Century laws of Quantum Physics are telling us that everything is energy. Everything that ever was, is, or will be exists in an infinite ocean of thinking energy called the Quantum Ocean.

The Cherokee spirits from the flooded Tennessee Valley still exist there.

When and how will the waves made by the Tennessee Valley Authorities inhumanity come back to the physical world.

Even though you and I did not have anything directly to do with the T.V.A., we allowed those in charge to do it. We, the little people, must find a way of stopping the big people endangering us with dangerous backlashes.

Native American Broken Treaties

Native American Broken Treaties

Even though it has been twenty years, I remember it as if it were yesterday.

Willie Whitefeather, my Cherokee Indian medicine man friend, used to come out of the desert to visit me.

He knocked so loudly on my apartment door, at two in the morning, that he would wake the whole complex.

I would let him in and he would plop on the rug in the living room with his brown bag full of fresh corn, which he had just liberated from some field.

I would sit in my chair, ( I never could get comfortable in the cross -legged sitting style that he used.)

Willie would shuck the corn and dig into the uncooked corn. I always thought he must have teeth like steel the way he could bite and chew that raw corn. But he loved it that way, no salt no butter.

When I think back, I could kick myself for not having a tape recorder on to record all the wonderful stories he used to tell me. I have to do the best I can do to remember some of them. When he had finished off the corn, he would lay back and fall off to sleep for a few hours.

I remember thinking, that Willie loves life and has a great sense of humor. One of his favorite past times was to go to the complex pool with me.

There were always five or six women sunbathing on lounge chairs around the pool. And in Arizona the sun shines 360 days a year.

Willie would let down his long black hair, run towards the pool and leap into it, while emitting this loud Indian war cry. He hit the water like a cannon ball, and being a small pool, it drenched the women in the lounge chairs.

When he came to the surface with his black hair smacked down, framing his classic Indian features, he had a big smile on his face. This presented a most fearsome Indian warrior look, that caused several of the women to get up and run away screaming. Willie would smirk, and be most satisfied, having caused the desired effect.

He was like a little boy during these times and loved splashing around the pool. But I encouraged him to make a fast exit.

Broken Treaties

Willie told me a story he called "Broken Treaties,"

At the time before the break up of Russia, Willie was wary of them. He called Russia "The Bear!" Let's see if I can recall some of the story for it is quite long.

The Bear looked over the mountain and saw a fat country (USA). The Bear was hungry. So the Bear decided to unite with the Eagle (USA). Bear studied the Eagle. Bear saw that the people were" idealists." Bear decided to divide and then conquer.

Bear started with one word "abortion." The country divided, Bear then placed a guilt trip on the women and the country divided again. Then Bear used two words "child abuse."

Bear had every one arguing amongst themselves. Next Bear put fear into the Chief of the country and he built a wall around the White House. Now that the country was afraid, they would not go to Europe they would go to "Disneyland!"

Bear knew that if the Chief is in fear of Nasty terrorists, the whole tribe would be in fear.

The brain of Bear is behind his mouth.

Bear looked back at the old days and made enemies of all former friends..

Now Bear builds a wall around the country so the mean and nasty terrorists won't hurt the TV watching people.

But then the people shout, " Hey wait! We can't get out!"

"Gottcha!" sez Bear.

Bear is to white man what white man was to the Indians. ---Trail of Broken Treaties --- come full circle.

When I think back about Willie I am still amazed how wise that Cherokee Medicine man was.

He knew more about the inner workings of world politics than most white men.

And he spent almost all of his time in the desert, at Four Corners, on the Colorado river and the Grand Canyon.

I believe that his periodic Vision Quests and sweat lodges gave him more accurate news than CNN or the New York Times.

Good morning,

Some more information about Native Americans and my friend Willie and his Native American wisdom.

My friend Willie Whitefeather was a Native American Cherokee and he spent a lot of time talking about the "Cherokee Trail of Tears." Many of his ancestors were in that march.

In case you are not familiar with it, I will share some of it with you.

The Trail of Tears is one of the saddest chapters in the history of the Native American. It came about because the US Government wanted to relocate the Cherokee Native Americans They had a plan to send them to a reservation near what is now known as Tulsa, Oklahoma.

It was no instant decision but was the result of a series of events that began in 1827.

It was that year that the Cherokee Nation declared itself a republic and even ratified its own constitution.

In 1828, a renowned Indian fighter named Andrew Jackson succeeded the more sympathetic John Quincy Adams in the white house.

Then in 1829, gold was discovered on Cherokee land. The following year, the Indian Removal Act was made law. After several years of delays and some Cherokee emigration from the area, the army moved to forcibly evacuate the remaining Cherokee's from then land. It was 1838.

Although the army officer in charge of the evacuation of the Cherokees in Georgia issued strict orders that it be carried out as humanely as possible, his orders were largely ignored.

Cherokee families were herded out of their homes at bayonet point, shoved, struck and even shot.

Personal property was seized and sold. Bands of looters pillaged Indian villages, sometimes before all residents had left.

Not even the cemeteries were spared, as thieves unearthed graves for silver pendants and jewelry.

After temporary internment in camps, the Cherokees were grouped in caravans. In September, 1838 the Indians began the long trek to their new home in crude wagons, on horseback, but mostly on foot.

They trudged through the snowy winter cold. Many were elderly and feeble and they died along the way. Travelers who passed the processions described a din of weeping as the caravan slowed momentarily to bury the dead.

When the last of the Cherokees arrived at the reservation in March, 1839, it was not known exactly how many had perished. The estimate is 4000, one fifth of their entire population.

Four other Native American tribes in the Gulf States region were uprooted during this time. The Creek, Choctaw, Chickasaw and Seminole.

By 1840, the Trail of Tears, as the route to the reservation land came to be known, was closed.

All five Native American tribes had been removed from their homelands.

Wouldn't it be nice if Hollywood and TV would put aside for awhile the movies and program, about the Holocaust and tell the story about the Native American Cherokees?

Thank you Ragnar

Good morning,

My Native American friend Willie Whitefeather was full of $1,000,000 verbal gems.

I am sorry that I did not carry a tape recorder with me.

He once said "Curious Bear ... (that is the name Willie gave me for I was constantly asking questions)... the Great Spirit is constantly talking to us with signs, but you white men are not listening.

He had a Native American interpretation for every sign he saw.

If a bird flew past you from left to right it was a certain message. if it flew right to left a different message. If it flew from the front into your heart and important message.

Speaking of signs and prophecies, in the sacred cave of the Native American Hopi's in 4 Corners, Arizona are several amazing signs in the for of pictographs, on the walls.

These pictographs are at least 3000 years old.

One shows, very clearly three sailing ships heading towards land. The Native Americans knew that Columbus was coming with three ships. They new is as sure as they knew that the sun would rise the next day, only they did not know when.

There was another interesting pictograph. It showed a stick figure of a beetle blowing on a flute crossing a stream.

The interpretation was ... "when the singing beetle who crosses the water dies there will be earth changes will be soon."

John Lennon!

The day after John Lennon died hundreds of Native American medicine man can out of seclusion and once again walked amongst the people getting them prepared.

Are we preparing?

The Cherokee word for hello is O-C-O.

The Native Americans had it all together before the landing of the white man.

"If one people in the tribe was starving ... it meant the whole tribe was starving. They shared their food, their wisdom and then they allowed to Pilgrims to land."

Will Rogers who was a mixed blood Cherokee Indian asked...

"Would we have allowed the Indians to land?"

One day the Cherokee Nation will return.

So many people have a drop of Cherokee blood in their veins and many of them do not know that the Cherokees are the keepers of the sacred fire.

The sacred fire was carried from Tennessee to Oklahoma on the Cherokee Trail of Tears in 1838. It's never gone out.

The Northern Europeans had it all together before the Christians came. What kind of a world would it be if we had converted them to paganism?

The Northern Europeans will return.



Good morning,

You may be asking yourself why I, Ragnar Storyteller, of Viking ancestry, is writing about Native American Folklore.

For several reasons.

I lived in Arizona for 20 years. I fell in love with the traditional Native American culture.

I met and became a very close friend of Willie Whitefeather, a Cherokee Medicine Man.

We shared many cultural stories, Native American and Viking. We both saw a great similarity of the different belief systems.

Willie invited me to visit 4 Corners, Arizona, Land of the Hopis, where I learned a great deal about their prophecies and wisdom.

I have written about some of my experiences on my website.

Both Willie and myself believe in mighty earth changes coming soon.

Vikings call it Ragnarok, the final battle between good and evil.

The Native Americans call it the 5th world.

Willie is a great artist and writer. Most of his writings are in cartoon pictograph form telling great truths.

I don't have any of his cartoons but I remember his stories and great truths.

Willie once told me that the white man is crazy. Why? Because he makes songs up for everything from toilet paper, soda and cars.

A Native American only sings songs to the woman he is wooing and at spiritual pow wows.

He sure got that right. Greedy materialism is driving us to our knees.

About writing.

"If a man has something good or true to say, he will say it in a few words; if it is not good nor true he will talk and talk and try to make it seem good and true and tell you that you must believe him..." (Willie's Grandfather).

Politicians? Lawyers? Preachers? Car Salesmen?

"The only reason that we exist is the fact that our mother earth happens to have a layer of topsoil and that it rains. All the rest is talk..."

As for the earth changes Willie says:


"She is going to blow her nose and powder her face, put on a new dress and fresh makeup and go off in a new direction. And no one can stop a woman from doing that."
