A brother in the Mii-Dii-Wii-An (The great Medicine Society) has said this about this issue: Are these people working for the C.I.A., or F.B.I., or something else? The old smear campaign against medicine people, divide and conquer concept. Who made these people God? How are they qualified to sit on judgment on anyone? Who qualified them, the evil spirits, powers, and forces…or the Government? As they sit in judgment a much higher court is judging them!
I will quote something that A true medicine Man said to one of his students that I have found to be profoundly true.
“This is not your choosing. You don’t have the right or authority to interfere with what the great spirit has decided. You were chosen to be a Medicine man long before you came into this body on this earth. You have a duty and a responsibility to follow the calling. If not you will hurt your family, your people, and the spiritual function and design of the Universe. Sure, it’s a tough life. Your own Indian people will make fun of you, they will talk bad about you, they will probably even call you a phony or something. But the Great Creator Knows, The mother Earth knows, your relations in Nature know, the numerous people from all walks of life you will help, heal and teach will know; and you will know. That is all that really matters. And when things get tough in life you will just have to grin and bear it. That is one of the ways for a true Medicine Man. You take on the suffering, the fear, the hate, the anger, the pain, the confusion, and the sickness of the people. That is why you are different. And you can’t run and hide from it. You were put here on the Earth to do a job for the Great Creator. Like it or not, you’ve got to be strong and just do it.”
