An Online Newsletter Celebrating Native America
All One Nation
We as a Nation seem to be losing our heritage. For instance, how many of you know that November is American Indian month? And why isn't it celebrated on television? How any of our children can speak their native tongue? How many of our young could make their own clothing or hunt for their food?
This web site is a current, present day effort to share some of these teachings and accurate knowledge of our culture and way of life with those of you out there who may wish to learn more. We sincerely hope that you join us, learn with us and enjoy our site. Miigwech!

The Native American Association of Germany e.V.
NAAoG goals to provide a meeting point for Native Americans living or temporarily stationed by US Military in Europe. Ideally, the meeting point provides Native Americans the opportunity to continue or build relationship with other Native Americans in the Europe-area. The NAAoG organizes meetings for Native Americans; arranges pow-wows; supports Native Americans throughout their activities during the federally recognized “National American Indian Heritage Month” during November.
Native American Genealogy
We now have pages up on Cherokee, Choctaw, Lakota with lots more coming for Native American Genealogy. We are hoping to build sites for all the different Indian Nations as time progresses. Since there is such a great interest in Cherokee families and I have done a lot of work on those lines I thought that we would try something different and add some files. The first of them was Nancy Wards so Sequoyah is next.

Native Tours

Peace Party
Peace Party takes you back to the comic books of the old days, where the story had as much weight as the drawings. They went hand in hand as they took the reader through the struggles the superheroes were going through without the cursing, sex and violence which is mainstream in today's society.
Hello, my name is Victor Rocha and if I offend anyone with my opinions, bad grammar or free-style punctuation I apologize in advance.......I spend a lot of time maintaining this web site and keeping the information current because these are the issues that affect me, my family, and my tribe (The Pechanga Band of Luiseno Indians from Temecula, California)...
Keepers of the Sacred Tradition of Pipemakers
We believe in our hearts that we have organized to protect the Great Pipestone Quarries of Minnesota from exploitation or ownership by any one specific tribe or group of people who may try to inflict their own personal beliefs on others. The art form of pipemaking has been practiced by tribal people for over a thousand years.

Remember Wounded Knee
("Remember Wounded Knee")
Rez Express
Most of the Native People you will meet today are just as much a part of the mainstream as you are. They walk in the ways of the Ancestors, and carry that walk with pride. You will find most them to be quiet and truthful.... you will know them by their walk.
Richard Dean Cook " Telling Bird " Eastern Cherokee Artist & Writer
Born in 1949 to a Full Blooded Eastern(Carolina) Cherokee Father and a Swiss/German Mother, I was a writer of verse first. After an accident in 1987, which ended my Navy career and left me with hands that didn't work, I sought out a way to make my hands work. Art became my physical therapy and today I have Paintings in Galleries and in private collections throughout the world.
Rosebud Elementary School
Santee Sioux School Homepage
The Indian people's wishes were finally realized in 1976, when a school was built at Santee. At first limited to kindergarten through eighth grade, it subsequently added a four-year high school. It was financed by a $2.1 million federal grant. Although the school is of the most modern design, with sky lights and carpeting, the traditions and heritage of the Santee have not been forgotten. A mural in the school depicts the history of the Santee.
