Believe What You Like But Know What You Must

People are free to be consumed with contemplating their existence, their origins, the origins of the universe, supreme beings, controllers of destiny or anything else. But solving "the Great Mystery" is neither a requirement of being Ohnkwe Ohnwe nor does it provide a path to righteousness. I maintain that spirituality does not require faith or the leaps that faith requires but rather awareness. If it helps to believe that "God has a plan" and we just must have faith that "He" knows what "He" is doing, then walk that path. My interest is in taking the mystery out of life by pointing to the obvious that is ignored everyday in the midst of fanatical ideology and the sometimes not too subtle influences of promoting beliefs over knowledge. I have said it before: “beliefs are what you are told, knowledge is what you experience”. I support a culture that prepares us to receive knowledge and to live a life with purpose. I am certainly not suggesting there is only one way to do that.

Native Pride Collaborates to Launch MAVI Magazine

March will see the laucnh of Making A Visible Impact Magazine. Many Native Pride posts will be featured from the past and going forward. The printed version will be available at Native retailers free of charge. As always my desire is to start the conversations and discussions needed to engage our people. MAVI will be a little on the lighter side featuring photos and promoting artisanship as well. Continue to check in here even as MAVI makes its way around for day to day news and views.
