Remembering all the #indigenous children who never came home to their families and never had a chance to live their lives.

My grandfather took his little brother and ran away from Chilocco Indian School and somehow made it home. I will never forget his struggle and what he had to go through.

This amazing Oglala Lakota woman, Leatrice โ€œChickโ€ Big Crow adopted me almost 30 years ago. She has helped guide me, supported me, supplied me with priceless knowledge, and has most importantly prayed for me and lifted me up. I am infinitely grateful for the love and strength.

I met Chick on my 1st trip to Pine Ridge in 1993. She fed me after I performed at Pine Ridge High School at a place that was inspired by her daughter SuAnne Big Crow.

From an article in the Huffington Post by Tim Giago, (the founder of the Lakota Times and Indian Country Today) he recalls about SuAnne:

โ€œSuAnne Big Crow was furious after she watched an NBC broadcast about the Pine Ridge Reservation in 1981. "They came here & showed all of the terrible things and did not bother to show any of the good things," she said.

Big Crow was a star basketball player, & a proud defender of her homelands. She was only 17 & she could not understand how a supposed sophisticated news network could be so negative & so wrong.

Big Crow died in an automobile accident before she even had a chance to live & to fight for her dreams. She envisioned a place where Lakota children could go, a place where they would be safe & happy. In fact, in her mind she called it "Happy Town." She was on her way to get a basketball award in eastern South Dakota w/ her mother when the car crash ended her life.

After her death her mother, "Chick" Big Crow, decided to make the dream of her daughter a reality. She contacted the corporate executives of the Boys and Girls Clubs of America & made them a pitch. They came out to Pine Ridge & made an assessment & granted Ms. Big Crow the first Boys and Girls Club franchise to be established on an Indian reservation. It was named the SuAnne Big Crow Boy's and Girl's Club after the girl who wanted a "Happy Town" for the children of the reservation.โ€
โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”
My first album was dedicated to SuAnne and through all these years her spirit & passion still inspires me.

Thank you Chick for all you have done for me, for your family, for Pine Ridge and for the Lakota people. I love you and appreciate you! ๐Ÿ™๐ŸฝโœŠ๐Ÿฝ

Living my purpose, to the best of my ability - everyday. Striving to be the best me I can be. For myself, my family and to honor the Creator for the gift of my life.
โœŠ๐Ÿฝ
We have all been born to accomplish amazing and fulfilling things.
๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฝ
In life, it is so easy to get distracted and wander off our path. If that happens: stop for a sec, breathe, refocus, pull out your plan, make the necessary adjustments and then get back on track and remember to stay focused. Learn the lesson and move on. No matter what, donโ€™t stop moving forward.
๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿฝ
And through all the hustle and bustle, embrace your everyday life experience. Because the reward is not just at the end of the journey, most importantly, the reward IS the journey. ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ†

Always start with your โ€œWhyโ€! Immerse yourself in all aspects of that which you endeavor to achieve. Millions fail because they donโ€™t start! A lot of people just talk, because thatโ€™s easy and everyone can do that. Donโ€™t surround yourself with those people.
โœจ
There is never, ever, a perfect time to begin. So prepare and attach timelines to all the mini goals in your plan. Trust the process. Be willing to do the work and whatever is necessary. Expect the road to be inconvenient. Expect everything will be earned and that nothing will be given to you. Embrace, search out and develop every bit of the amazing talent and ability the Creator birthed you with. Believe in yourself.
โญ๏ธ
And then never quit. Nothing comes easy. Itโ€™s not supposed to. The owners manual and all the instructions you need are found in every step of the path you will walk.
โšก๏ธ
And when you arrive you will be ready. You will be able to appreciate, respect and value all that you have achieved and help others do the same.
๐ŸŒŸ
RISE and do what you have been born for. You arenโ€™t here to do time, but rather to make the most of it. ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ™๐ŸฝโœŠ๐Ÿฝ [Share it if ya wanna] โ˜บ๏ธ

On Memorial Day I am remembering all those who lost their lives here, especially the thousands of children across North America who were ripped from their families and taken off to never be seen again, whose sacrifice was not recorded in any history books and whose struggle will never be known.
๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฝ
Many wonโ€™t like hearing that- well, It is what it is and what a privilege to be able to just tune it out and ignore it.
๐Ÿคท๐Ÿฝโ€โ™‚๏ธ
Prayers up for all the Warriors who just wanted for their families to be able live their lives and be left alone. And who ended up giving their lives in the line of duty and in service to defending their people and way of life!
๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฝ
You are not forgotten and live in my heart each and every day! Hoka!

Check out my latest article in Forbes [LINK IN BIO], โ€œNew Administration Means New Chance to Get It Right on Tribal Inclusion and Consultationโ€.

"Because tribes are sovereign entities, actions taken by the federal government can severely and disproportionately impact tribal communities and tribal business interests. Consultation is meant to prevent inadvertent harm to Native communities. Admittedly, it is not always convenient for a federal agency to learn that its proposed policy would drastically harm a tribe, its business or its people. But as President Biden noted in his memo, โ€œhistory demonstrates that we best serve Native American people when Tribal governments are empowered to lead their communities, and when Federal officials speak with and listen to Tribal leaders in formulating Federal policy that affects Tribal nations.โ€

"Tribes have consistently worked in a productive and meaningful manner with the federal government and, together, have made progress toward shared goals. President Bidenโ€™s prioritization of this fundamental policy is a step in the right direction and should be celebrated. Now it is up to the federal agencies to follow his lead and adhere to his mandate to uphold good-faith efforts to honor and respect the sovereignty of tribal nations."

Vision is everything. Itโ€™s 100% where it all starts. Iโ€™m excited by new possibilities and being able to see amazing opportunities on the horizon. Have they been done yet? No. Does that mean they canโ€™t be done? No.

If YOU donโ€™t know where youโ€™re going, YOU will absolutely never get there. Guaranteed.

And hereโ€™s a life hack: Never listen to what people think, who havenโ€™t done what you want to do. Be nice, be respectful and move on.

I hope you are carrying out your vision and executing on opportunities that you can see, even if others canโ€™t. #onward

When things donโ€™t go as planned, donโ€™t panic.. We are all human and no matter how hard we pursue excellence or being the best version of ourselves, we will fall short in some way.

But, that doesnโ€™t mean to get complacent and resort to accepting some sort of failure as if itโ€™s just inevitable.

When we find ourselves with a result we didnโ€™t anticipate or plan for, we have to stay calm and not panic. Anxiety can kick into hyper-drive in these moments and before you know it it seems like the world is crumbling. Itโ€™s not.

Stay calm and have the presence of mind to trust your plan, assess the situation, make the adjustments you need to make and then keep going.

Whenever chaos or disruption come your way, donโ€™t get caught up in it. Worst thing you can do. Keep as much distance as you can and pay attention.

These are the moments where you find gems that you may not realize are gems at the time. These moments are shaping you into the person you need to be as you carry forward and further into your endeavor.

Not paying attention and learning the lessons in these difficult moments most likely means you will find yourself in the same situation again. And each time with more to lose.

So stay calm, learn what you are in that moment to learn and keep moving. ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ™๐ŸฝโœŠ๐Ÿฝ
