"Bernie hates telling these stories and has resisted using them for political capital across the years — even when advisors and others have told him it would boost his profile — he has refused. He does what he does because he cares. When I introduced Bernie at a rally in Los Angeles by sharing many of these stories, his own family came to me in tears saying that even they had never heard them before. He has always felt that what he did during the sixties paled in comparison to those who were beaten or lost their lives — and so he has kept some powerful stories to himself.

It’s cool for people to say, “I marched with Dr. King” — and Bernie actually did attend the March on Washington, but he did so much more than that. This is not some exaggerated myth. This is the origin story of a political revolutionary." #Bernie2020 #PoliticalRevolution

Looking to develop a network of registered Chahta artists: crafts, music and other fine arts. Send me a PM with your website showcasing your work. If you don't have a website, send me some pics of your work.
I want to spend the next few months creating a website for Chahta Creations. The info you send me will aid me in an efficient way to layout my site.

Pinon Salve | Dirty Girl Soaps, LLC

This pinon resin was hand gathered from the high desert in the Colorado Rockies and infused into extra virgin olive oil and h**p oil for their healing effects. The intoxicating aroma of pinon smells as rich and sweet as the high elevation forests in the Rockies. It’s warming, stimulating and also very antimicrobial, helping to clear up infections by drawing out toxins.

Drunk Driving Commercial Aimed at American Native People

If I have a favorite commercial, it would be this one. Just this one, especially at this time of the year. Check it out and think about it. If you celebrate the new year at this time, wouldn't it be much better served to spend it at home with family, offering up some prayers for a better year. If you agree, I hope that you will repost! Maybe we should have Elders going out to watch over those who drink and drive. It could make a difference in the lives of someone.

Working on some new balms today. Our Chapparal ointment smells like the high mountain desert after a good rain. It has many healing qualities and relieves discomfort associated with eczema, psoriasis and dry cracking skin.

A NATURAL (R)EVOLUTION: Revolutionary products using traditional medicines, crafts and arts.
In June of 1993, I attended the World Conference on Human Rights, Vienna, Austria, as a part of the Survivors Committee. Some of our members were students from Tiananmen Square, the Dalai Lama and people who were victims of state violence. It was there that I had the opportunity to meet with the late Dame Anita Roddick, creator & owner of "The Body Shop". We discussed what she was doing with Indigenous communities, and her philosophy was to 'give a hand up and not a hand out", which we shared.
I thought of Anita and her principle of "ethical and green consumerism", when we began "Dirty Girl Soaps", and we felt good about this. We'll continue this with Chahta Creations. As a Native owned company, we'll use only natural ingredients that we know has had beneficial properties we've used for centuries.
We will offer only Native made crafts of superior quality, by Chahta's (Choctaw) and other Native people, including some of my own. In keeping with my activism, as they are available, we'll present products such as: books, video's and CD's; including thought provoking posters, cards and t-shirts, along with bumper stickers, etc.
In a time of commercialism and mass production, We will present something real & unique! Visit us often!
