Good Morning Charla... I am so excited about coming to be with you all... At
the graciousness of Jacqueline Gelzer who got my tickets & Will Hoffpaugh
Minister of the Church of Light there in Huntsville, who gifted a place to
share, I am truly on my way. Be well & see you in 10 Days! I am so glad you got
that 7 foot stone in place, for Grams Barbara Meister-Vitale & I were wondering
if John had that job for us!
This visit with you all is universally important...Sister Barbara & I were
talking about that importance last nite. Actually out of all my years on the
road, this I do believe, is the first time I am just coming because it was
important to my heart...I asked the universe & you for this trip. Then loving
hearts made it happen. Usually I have to go for spirit...but this time I had to
go for my own heart. I am leaving on Thursday for my High School Reunion, a
visit with my kids John & Sherri in Indy, stopping off in Chicago for a visit
with relatives & then onto Huntsville where Jacqueline will 'tote' me up there.
I am in so much respect for you Charla & John... I want to celebrate this with
you. Be well & see you soon! Thunder

Good Morning Family,
So we are on the last ten days of GET IT DONE!
Yesterday the Creator Stone went up and now towers 7 feet in the center of the
Wheel. The Men prayed and lifted. (it was so cool to have Joseph and Martin at
Tarwater's side, just as they were 19 years ago) This time no rain, and the
women sang, and the children giggled and it was all a grand day, that was capped
off with a trip to the lodge to cleanse and pray for all that we need to bring
this vision forth. Next weekend is the final prep weekend...all hands on deck.
We are so blessed with such a grand support crew. Saturday Marilyn, Kathy, Atma,
Charla, Nicki, and Annie cooked all day, filling the freezer with loads of
wonderful soups and chili's. Meanwhile Libby, Alisha, Doug, Tonya, Krista and
Lewis, were joined by Martin while the camp areas were cleeaned, the facilites
put in order and signs were put into place to assist everyone whith what, when,
where, and how...
The out door kitchen clean up and recyling area was put into place and picnic
tables cleaned. Inside, table clothes went on the mess hall tables, and cookies
went in the next freezer, and dishes were cleaned and readyied at the cofee/tea
bar. At the three new lodges, Joseph and Hyordis hauled trauck loads of wood,
cut it into proper length to go with the trailer of rocks that Lee hauled in.
and Tarwater checked things off the list and cut grass.
Sun Bear's Altar coming together, the trading post almost cleaned.....the
children are getting all excited and Charla sorts through the registration
materials to make sure everyone has tents, mats, chairs and a happy way to get
in and out. Wind Daughter and Lynnn are driving back from Grandpa Bear Heart's
where they have just done ceremony with him, purchased him a new hat and boots.
He IS planning to carry the Buffalo Skull into the Wheel and make the blessings,
just as planned. We hear Mary Thunder getting closer, and have spoken to Randy
North Star who tells of a group plan that includes Diane Duggan, Page Bryant and
Scott Guynup...Old Bear Tribe Fire crew and Teachers respond each day.. Grandma
Barabra has packed and repacked her wardrobe changes..and at least 70 of you
have actually gotten your registration in...WOULD THE REST OF YOU PLEASE LET US
KNOW RIGHT AWAY, SO I CAN BUY FOOD NEXT WEEK....PLEASE, PLEASE. Our mail has
been slow, and some of you ...like 40 have told me that you already mailed
checks, but I have not received them....ummmmmm I am holding your space.
FRIDAY NIGHT DETAILS...Friday Night's ritual of awakening the Wheel is open to
the public. We do need to know you are coming, however, so we can let you know
where to park and where to meet....Please let us know right away, and plan to be
here no later than 6:30 so we can get you organized into the process. We have
over a dozen guest Elders attending this evening only and would like to make
sure everyone has coffee and is comfortable. Thanks
Elder's...some of you have asked about gifting Elders, and that is wonderful. We
have over a dozen coming and it is always nice, if you wish to bring a token of
your esteem. It can be a tobacoo offering with a little green energy to help
with their travels. (MANY OF THESE ELDERS ARE COMING AT THEIR OWN EXPENSE, JUST
TO BE WITH YOU) You may bring a little pouch with a magical offering inside, BUT
do remember that many are flying, so keep the gifts small and simple and air
port security proff. Like no lighters, or feathers or materials that might cause
challenges. Most Elders travel light and appreciate the simple means to get from
one place to another. Most Elders spend lots of time sleeping in vans, on
couches and in strange homes so that they can serve the people. All of the
Elders coming here are doing this to bless each of you as their give away. So
please be mindful of that. The seminar fees have gone to direct costs like porta
johns, postage and s upport of the Bear Tribe's new home. The meal ticket costs
are going directly into buying good organic foods to cook for you and to provide
you with a grand honoring feast of our Rainbow Tribe reunion..
We are quite excited to know that so many of you are chosing to come to honor
Sun Bear in this manner, as well as to honor each other. We are doing all we can
to provide you with a weekend to remember.
May you all be blessed as you pack to come, and remember to bring your own mugs
and dishes to wash, if you can. (we do have back up) And remeber to bring layers
of clothes and lots of smiles. You may bring drums, rattles, and stones to bless
at the Wheel. Bring you camera and a smile...and a chair to sit on at seminars
Drive carefully and see us soon. Registration begins at 3pm Friday...anyone
arriving earlier than that is probably going to be put to work...hahahaha....
blessings to one and all
Charla and the crew
