I love to read and write about the Native Americans. I'm about half Apache and half Mexican. I'm a Sunday school teacher at This Generation Church (Pentecostal). My dream is to meet Eddie Spears and Michael Spears who are native actors from South Dakota. I have Cerebral palsy, but I am blessed that I can walk, run, and talk. And I love to write!

  • For some people "Pentecostals" is a new word to some. A century again it was rarely part of the average North American's vocabulary. However, it's used has risen steadily, most often in reference to the fastest growing segment of the Christian faith.
    Although it has become much more common in recent years, it is not a new word. It goes back to an ancient Jewish feast celebrated the first fruits of the harvest. The Hebrew was primarily an agrarian society and a successful harvest was critical to their well-being.
    They celebrated God's blessing and provision for them with a feast, which fell on the fiftieth day after another important feast day, the Passover. But for Christians, Pentecost takes on a different meaning. It marks the birthday of the Church.
    The bible also records the first outbreak or outpouring of the Holy Spirit on the earliest believers on the Day of Pentecost.
    The Book of Acts records the experiences and teachings of this new movement. Because many of the key players of the Acts church were eyewitnesses to the life and teachings of Jesus, it follows that they would have the clearest insight into the way in which to worship Jesus.
    As a result the church in Acts should function as a model to follow when attempting to build a church. However over the centuries the institutional church lost sight of the Acts pattern. Just over a hundred years ago.

He does get better, his attitude changes, he even looks better. He get bad as he gets old, his brothers have to put him in a nursing home.
  • White Hawk is getting worse, and he knows there is something wrong now, before he didn’t think anything of it, and didn’t tell anybody he was seeing something that nobody else could see.

  • The past is gone but not forgotten by this young boy named White Hawk; he has a rare gift some people may say. His parents do not have an answer on why he stares at nothing for a certain period.

The old ones see it as a gift from the Creator, and White Americans say differently.
  • A young Native child had a good life, his parents were so thrilled and full of joy that they were going to have a boy. When he was born life was good, they loved him unconditional, then as he got old enough to walk and talk, his life turned for the worst. His parents started to turn to drink because the father lost his job, and the mother’s sister died of kidney failure because she drank herself to death.
    Every pay check they got from the government, they would go to White Clay Nebraska, to buy liquor and stay there, they would leave him alone and he had to dress and get ready by himself for school, even make breakfast for himself, he didn’t have anybody to go to. Then his parents would come home and pass out on the bed or have big parties at their house. When he was 10 that’s when it started to get violent. But he loved his parents even though they beat him. He wants to help his parents get better, but that all changes when some foster parents step in to help.
  • One boy struggling to walk the red road won't listen to anybody not even his little brother who walks the red road. He is angry all the time, stealing, and wanting to hurt people, not trusting anybody that's not Indian, Grandfather pulls him on the POW WOW trail.
