Not unfortunate because of the nice change in weather, but UNFORTUNATE because the weirdos are coming out of the woodwork, with their rattles and chicken feathers and little groupies in tow!
I got a letter from a buddy in Germany who found out about an event, here's an excerpt:
"" Liz has send me a lot of comments from Indian People about "plastic
medicin men", and one day later I´ve got a message from friends about an event
in Germany - with three guests, one of them shall be a comanche teacher, called
Dr. Rev. Lighning Bear, in comanche Pushican. Do you know him?""
This guy's been peddling his crap around for years and no, no one I talked to who would know any healer in my tribe, knew him and I sure don't.
I asked my friend over in Germany to let anyone know that he was bogus as the day is long. I also asked her to find out what organization is promoting him, and who his comarades/fellow perpetrators are!
Hope to find out soon!
