A Native American healing ceremony will be performed in front of the Radical Longhual which seems to have a problem with people of color especially Indigenous people. The ceremony will involve the laying of a medicine wheel down on the ground which is the four colors of the people (Yellow to the East, Red to the South, Black to the West and White to the North). This is not just about white folks, but about people of all colors. This has been a problem since contact (Columbus) for the last 519 years. The Longhual has a two year conflict with banning people without a trial or input at least the dominant culture allows you a trial before they hang or and jail you. Some folks believe that there is a general dislike for productive people in the community at the Longhual. This author does not disagree with that belief but is conducting a spiritual healing ceremony for the racism that is pervalent in this organization as it has banned a Native American Elder and Pipe Carrier for ever changing reasons. For what ever reason you believe this organization needs spiritual healing and this ceremony will also be performed for the Stop Driving (org) campaign by putting the Wheel (medicine) back on the ground. When the Blackfeet Nation (Montana) saw the settlers crossing the plains with their guns in hands, my people saw that the white people had taken the wheel off the ground and knew modern day insanity was going to happen. The misuse of the wheel ie. personal auto usage. Not since the wagon trains have come across the plains has the wheel been challenged as being perpendicular to the ground.
