Bennie LeBeau and Kristine Soliday's Earth Wisdom Foundation is holding planning meetings in Olympia for their "Pacific Northwest Medicine Wheel" 2012.
Hopefully anyone considering attending these events will first do some research:
Bennie LeBeau aka Blue Thunder - ongoing discussion thread begun 2005 (I post as "Epiphany" there), includes the experience of a former follower
Some added issues to think about - one point on their created medicine wheel map is listed as Quinault Nation. If you don't know better, it could be easy to assume that these events are Quinault Nation endorsed. Cate Montana is listed as "Ambassador" on that Earth Wisdom Foundation page. So are we to believe that Cate Montana is an "Ambassador" for the Quinault Nation?
So where can we find legitimate information? The Quinault Indian Nation has an official site. The Northwest Indian Fisheries Commission is very important and makes great use of social media to get the word out.
I encourage us all to research public figures and groups that make claims of "healing" our region. Don't accept anything at face value. Questioning and research is a legit practice - and if someone tells us otherwise - it is time to pay attention and fire up the ol' b.s. detector.
