Caring Heart of a Warrior

Scene Description from Sacajawea, The Windcatcher:
Just as the explorers reach the confluence of the Snake and Columbia Rivers, they are awed by a massive flock of sandhill cranes thundering through the clouds. Captain Clark takes aim from his canoe, shooting a huge crane from the sky. Seaman, Lewis’ black Newfoundland, jumps from the boat to retrieve the bird.

What is she thinking cropWithin moments, screaming and wailing rise from an abandoned village nearby. The men on shore run toward the huts where a group of Snake women and children huddle together – they are terrified that the bird was killed in flight by a loud, unfamiliar blast. They believe the white men will kill them, too.

The captains call Sacajawea to come, and without pause, she enters the hut. She speaks to the women and children with care in her Shoshone language, which is close to the Snake words, and everyone is calmed…

There are so many examples of Sacajawea’s depth-of-character depicted in the screenplay, Sacajawea, The Windcatcher. She never allowed a judgment of color, creed or religion to keep her true heart from being free as she walked the expedition. This scene with the frightened women and children in the abandoned village shows us her true spirit.

At this point, the explorers had already encountered many people and dangers along the way. They had seen her caring warrior spirit multiple times and the soldiers had built great respect for Sacajawea. This scene shows how they counted on the peacemaker she embodied. Indeed, she was a bridge for them in their time, and her spiritual story is a bridge for us, in ours. We, as One People, are awakening to hear.

The Wonders of Spirit Guide the Wonders of Life

Scene Description from Sacajawea, The Windcatcher: 
It’s January 1806 — the explorers will soon leave the Great Northwest. But, they must make one last trek to the beach where a massive whale has washed ashore, hoping to retrieve blubber for fuel. The night before, Sacajawea is adamant she must be allowed to finally see the ocean after coming so far on the journey. She proclaims with passion, “It would be too hard not to see the Great Water and now the big fish…” Captain Clark agrees. As they traverse the 1000 foot high Tillamook Head, a massive basalt lava flow connecting one beach to the other, the girl is awed with Creator’s wonders. Though she does not know just how important this very trail is to her total Being…

As history records, Tillamook Head is a massive volcanic lava flow that traveled down the Columbia River 15 million years ago. It came to rest along a beach of the Great Water, south of the mouth of the river.

Williams Clark’s journal tells us that Sacajawea hiked with him and a small group of explorers over this high rock to Cannon Beach, where the “Big Fish” washed ashore.

In the screenplay, as Sacajawea reaches the top of this 1000 foot high trek, she stands in awe of the infinite beauty. It is here she remembers the wisdom from her uncle (brother), “Boinair, your spirit is not bound, it is free.”

While researching Tillamook Head, the most amazing revelation captured us and affirmed Creator’s Spirit in all things for Sacajawea… spiritually and historically, without time or space. For what we learned was the basaltic lava flow that traveled down the Columbia millions of years ago, came to the same spot where Sacajawea was to be in 1806.

The absolute miracle is that this lava originated in Idaho, Sacajawea’s home! As she carried out her ultimate purpose to pray at the Great Water, spirit surrounded her with an energy source that touched her very core – it was the energy from her People and home, right under her feet, that flowed through the basalt rock she traversed.

Though Sacajawea did not know the geology, she did recognize the power, because she was taught to listen to her intuition and use the energy that was drawn around her life through the Infinite Wonders of Spirit.

Red Dress Day – Let us Never Forget!

red dress for women.png

When Sacajawea was just 12 years old she was kidnapped from her family. She experienced abuse at a young age, as a slave – and then, she was forced to become the “woman” of an old French fur trader. Sacajawea had his son when she was 16! What are the chances we would remember a little Shoshone girl today? How has she infiltrated our world and shown her Spirit in so many ways for generations?

Sacajawea’s time is NOW – and her story is for all people of the earth. Her spirit is strong, her energy ignites us for a cause, her destiny will be fulfilled when her story is told. She comes like the wind and nothing will ever be the same.

On this Red Dress Day, we remember all the Indigenous women who have gone missing or murdered. Let us wear red in their memory, and in the memory of Sacajawea. It is her “LIFE” we honor today and all the women of the world.

ONWARD, we Believe!

The Magic!

Good morning! I am so blessed with wonder at the way love works and how its energy is unstoppable. There are many things we don’t understand in life, we get so caught up in our literal walk that, at times, we miss the magic. There was a day in February, that was a powerful reminder of how Spirit works, and how, if we are watching and expecting the miracle, we realize it is already there for us.

The forecast was a major snowstorm, up and down the western coast from California to Canada. But, everything was in place for shooting the teaser reel for “Sacajawea, The Windcatcher.” (So much goes into arranging and setting up a shoot, even for a 2-minute teaser. From insurance to actors, to locations to crew – it is an enormous feat.) Yet, the forecast for the next day was the worst winter storm of the season. What to do?

20190622_091346.jpgThat evening, as we looked out to the Great Water, we saw a cloud formation of a woman in a hooded coat reaching her hands across the sky, and on the opposing side, we saw another figure reaching back. We remembered, at that moment, even if we weren’t sure in our minds, to look for the miracle, and we saw the message… “Do not give up!”

20190622_085937

We gathered at the beach the next morning. It was cold and windy, but not snowing yet! We didn’t know what was ahead. In Faith, we had to choose to BELIEVE and keep going. Which is exactly what we did…

And, later, what we learned was that the snowstorm hit the entire coastline, except for one hole in the clouds right over Fort Stevens State Park in Oregon, our location. That is the power, the energy, the vibration, the light and the dark that has always been at work with this Sacajawea project – and that is what drives us to our dream.

The message – A shell, smoothed and softened by the ocean waves and sand… As life, we are all formed into a beautiful work of art – indeed, it is her journey, and ours.

At this time the teaser is not open to the general public, but you can view it through the “Sacajawea Private Screening” group on Facebook. If you are not a member, please join the group at: https://lnkd.in/gSdt_4S (requires a facebook profile). You will not be able to share the video, so please invite your friends to join us, too.

Teaser Reel announcement

We learn from her journey

What is she thinkingSo much in our “every day” is already defined for us, how we should or shouldn’t dress, what music we should or shouldn’t listen to, how we should or shouldn’t feel, what we should or shouldn’t believe… It was no different in Sacajawea’s time. There were people coming from other lands who had their own set of rules. There were trappers and soldiers motivated by commerce for trade and exploitation. There were people stealing from others and families torn apart by selfishness and greed.

But, Sacajawea knew from her Shoshone teachings, there was more to understand than what was obvious in the world. She prepared for a love that was not to be, and she rose to her deepest self when she became a mother, even though she was still a child.

Please support this enormous effort to tell the important and true story of Sacajawea. Our purpose is defined by the path we have walked. We have had to allow a remembering of our own spiritual selves, to put our purpose before us, no matter what, and to protect this sacred Indigenous life path so it is told in Truth and authenticity.

There are so many ways to support Sacajawea. Take a few minutes and visit our links, become active by sharing our posts, joining our groups and visiting our store. What we have undertaken is not an easy endeavor, we need your help to reach the world. Thank you so very, very much!

ONWARD!
