Let us each be a Symbol of Peace for the world.

Sacajawea symbol of peaceThe spelling (and meaning) of Sacajawea’s name is controversial. In honoring her Shoshone people we have written her name with a “j” (Sacajawea) in the screenplay, SACAJAWEA, The Windcatcher, because the story is through her eyes.

Historians record, through the Lewis & Clark journals and some Hidatsa people, that the spelling is with a “g” (Sacagawea meaning “Bird Woman” in Hidatsa). And, there are other spellings of her name, as well (like Sakakawea).

We believe our mission is to bring people together around the person of Sacaj(g)wea. It is our passion to celebrate her life. Therefore, we have created a spearhead that we hope becomes a “Symbol of Peace.” Using the medicine wheel (representing all races) for the bowl of the “g” and red feathers for the “j” (representing the vermillion Sacajawea wore for peace and “women warriors,” who struggle around the world) we have created a powerful, unifying symbol that embraces us all.

The words of Sacajawea’s story compel us to open our hearts, enhanced by the magnificent artwork, by Marcia K Moore, and the meaningful and creative design of the red feather, by Shawna Neece Fitzpatrick. This dynamic symbol of the “g-j” represents a collaboration of women and we believe it will ignite Sacajawea’s spiritual purpose to soar as a whirlwind around the world.

 

Red Dress Day – Let us Never Forget!

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!”

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.

ONWARD!
