Messages From the Journey
Hello from Seattle
The Tulalip Reservation was host to the White Bison Sacred
Hoop Journey this past week end. We loved having the group
come to our community. Their love and their incredible spirits
brought much healing to our people. I just wanted to spread
the good news about the work. I have organized a meeting and
showing of the Wellbriety Movement Video given to us at the
gathering. I just wish to send my eternal gratitude to all
involved in this process.

Hello White Bison,
I just wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed the conference
that I attended in Portland, Oregon. I am a mother of four
children, two of them are Native American, one by birth and
one of my daughters was adopted by my ex husband who was Native
American. I would like a copy of the free Big Book when it
is available, also I am interested in learning about possibly
starting a Firestarter Program.
you again for the wonderful conference!
Don and staff
A big Wopila (thank you) for coming to Portland and sharing
your message, hope, strength and vision with all of us who
made the journey to meet you. I am especially grateful for
the opportunity my little kids had to pray with the Hoop and
talk with you. They certainly came away with some strong impressions
of the things they saw and heard. My son, Chaske, said it
made him feel "so proud" to be Indian. I can't say thank you
enough for all the sacrifices that you folks are making to
support the Medicine and It's Journey. But I will send your
message out to all those I know in Indian Country to make
the trip like we did to see and hear the message. Blessings
to all of you and your families.
at White Bison welcome all your letters and communications
from Hoop Journey III. Please share with us how your Hoop
Journey is going.
Red Road to Wellbriety, White Bison's 12 Step
recovery book, is in one of the last revisions before publication.
We are almost there... We will let you know just as soon as
it's available. Soon!
