NO FRONTIER. There never was a frontier in what we call the United States of America and hundreds of indigenous nations occupied the whole hemisphere for tens of thousands of years. Their cities were as large or larger than any European city and the people were highly skilled in astronomy, geography, language and math. There were no savages and Manifest Destiny led to one of the largest holocausts known to mankind, 70-100 million. The notorious Doctrine of Discovery gave Europeans a right to place their banner in the ground and declare the land in the name of god. A frontier never existed and "civilized" or "civilization" was used to describe Europeans. These people here were far advanced in proper balance with Mother Earth, Father Sky and Fire, breath of Earth. It was unacceptable what the new comers did. They simply invaded a well populated hemisphere and attempted to wipe out the culture and people. Think where you walk. Each step take notice. This is Indigenous Land.

Vulnerability


 Vulnerability is the birthplace of love, belonging, joy, courage, empathy, and creativity. It is the source of hope, empathy, accountability, and authenticity. If we want greater clarity in our purpose or deeper and more meaningful spiritual lives, vulnerability is the path. BrenĂ© Brown
