There are times in your life that you meet someone that
becomes very special to you. Such is Ellsworth Gasper, a person I consider one
of the most powerful medicine people I have met. He is on a very difficult path
in life; searching and reviving many of the ancient customs and spiritualism,
walking a traditional path, and bringing love and hope to all people. Despite
the racial butcherings he has had during his lifetime, he can still walk a path
of love, peace, and joy.
His dream is to start a school that will teach the old ways to
the Native American children. This school will be a center for people to find
food and clothing where there would otherwise be none. It will cater to the
needy elders and children, without being controlled by any outside organization
or governing body. His dream is my dream also, and I am backing his efforts any
way I can.
