Refuse Resist Reject all those that sell out our people, medicine, and our sacred sites for $ and a
The mis-appropriation of Native culture by "culture vultures"
Psychic phone readings $65.00
Spirit drawings $50.00
exposing another fake wannabee twinkie, PRICELESS
Read the bio below and tell me that this makes any sense at all---how do we let people get away with this stuff?
“I am a Lakota Tradional,
Nationally renowned Psychic,
Ordained minister, Spiritual counselor, Reiki Master/Teacher
Holistic Practioner and Artist.
I am available for Reiki Classes,
Sessions, Readings, Spirit Drawings, Lectures, Weddings & more!”
“Spirituality Super Store”
Several people have asked us who this person is and have
questioned about who her people are, this person stated that they recently discovered that she is SIOUX (?) and even though she was NOT brought up in her culture or traditions, she is now a "medicine person" ……?
A Lakota Traditionalist would not sell out our spirituality.
Where does the money go when someone sells Buffalo Skulls, Eagle Feathers, Sage, Sweet Grass or other “sacred relatives?”
Does it go back to Native people? No, and this scam is a billion dollar industry......
With a little bit of research you can go online and read about how our people are still struggling with issues of poverty, suicide, homelessness, freezing weather and lack of resources for heat.
Do any of these vendors, Native or non-Native, give money back to our people?
What steps have these vendors taken to ensure that whatever sacred medicines are harvested are done so with the dignity befitting a spiritual entity that listens to prayers? What have these entrepreneurs done to make sure that these sacred relatives have not gone into the hands that will use them in even more negative ways? What justification are they using to desecrate “sacred relatives?” In fact, we would challenge that someone else’s spiritual needs are the furthest from these exploiter’s mind.
At the end of the day, these people laugh at the rest of us while counting change from all the sales they have made. How long are we going to keep this going on?
say NO to CULTURE VULTURES!
