Indian mother




iconEver since I can remember, I have been fascinated with the Native American culture, history, and the arts and crafts. I have always loved the old myths and lore. The stories were magical, and are still passed down to the newest generation. One of the first things I did when I first got on-line was look for Native American sites, and I found plenty! I thought I would put these on a page for all to enjoy. I apologise for the slow loading of this page. It is very graphic intensive, because the graphics I borrowed from Sam Silverhawk and Poison's Icons to make it are so beautiful!


iconThe Trail of Tears began just a few miles from where I live now. The house that John Ross (principal Cherokee Indian Chief) lived in is also just a few miles from where I live. It still stands, and is a historical marker. North Georgia and the surrounding counties have kept the history alive and preserved much.  I am grateful for it, and it makes this area even more beautiful to me.


iconMy maiden name was Cloud. I have Cherokee ancestry from my father's side of the family, and Micmac (or Mi'kmaq) from my mother's. I am very proud to have this blood running in my veins however little there is. But more importantly, I feel the spirit of the indian in me, not the blood.

"Perhaps you think the Creator sent you here to
dispose of us as you see fit. If I thought you were sent
by the Creator, I might be induced to think you had a
right to dispose of me. Do not misunderstand me, but
understand me fully with reference to my affection
for the land.I never said the land was mine to do with
as I choose.The One who has the right to dispose of
it is the One who has created it. I claim the right to live
on my land and accord you the privilege of returning
to yours."

Part of a speech by Chief Joseph.

"Native Americans may be called the 'invisible people', but their wondrous and beautiful words, like the eons of Earth's life they have seen, will not fade or be swallowed by time. They belong to a people who have always cherished the land, who listen to it; in the sound of water or the sheen of a river stone. Nature's song is pervasive and faithful. It has a memory in its own language, as well as a story to tell."
