    The Cleansing - John Trudell (Tribal Voice).
    The Cleansing
    By John Trudell

    Little daughter you are so small for a big woman so soft for someone who must be so strong. Little daughter I hold you in my arms I laugh and am happy at your baby girl smile to say I feel good is not enough. Little daughter I walk with you through the dimension called time for what are minutes days or years compared to father daughter places in eternity. Little daughter you the delicate infant child carry the innocent reality I pray for your protection prayers to help you through this life experience. Little daughter at times I hold you next to me I am flowing an infinity of love to fill the times I cannot hold you next to me. Little daughter I am always with you even when you cannot see me there.

    Sister, sister I want to talk to the woman in you we are under siege in a troubled time. Sister, sister, wont you hear my voice I am your brother but I have made the mistakes of a man sometimes it's lonely being a man the programming has its affect isolation is such a cruel thing. Sister, sister wont you understand they took your brothers turned them into men like they took our sisters turned them into women. Sister, sister we are all the family of earth they have taken us away in their nuclear war taught us to compete and abuse and blame each other while were all being used. Sister, sister hear my heart it is time to bring the family back together we must remember earth we must remember what life is all about. Sister, sister I am your brother every time I've ever hurt you I have always hurt myself. Sister, sister hear my voice it's all up to us we have a choice.

    Crystal clear tears of salt come when my heart talks with sadness. The tears flow my emotional rivers it's no damn use to pretend pain will not rise again. Crystal clear tears of salt help my heart to feel for something when I do not want to clear my vision see my peace men don't cry Indians are stoic I tell that to my heart my eyes they just laugh at me and sometimes when my spirit hurts they make me cry crystal clear tears of salt, purify my memory help me understand this is not the beginning nor the end.

    For my children to the people I can talk when it comes to you I know what to say its just that I don't know how. I love you that is not the question showing it has been confusing my life has drifted all ways somehow I could just never stay. I've rationalized I am headed to a goal yet sometimes my heart hears me running to a future always from the past. I love you don't want you hurt I want you to realize your potential I have always been afraid to interfere my bias, my prejudices my doubt the weaker sides of me I had to protect you make you stronger. Compassion is to be your companion as you head to your destiny. I tried the only way I knew please try to understand I didn't know what else to do and I love you.

    Yesterday's laughter is the balance for today, today's tears are the cleansing for tomorrow. We started out so long ago there was no one teach us what we had to know. The days were ours the times they were extreme we did our best and we did our worst in a constant struggle to understand why. Illusions and fantasies battering us teaching us the hard way forcing us to find a right way. Shelter and comfort coming where we found it constantly moving it was like being chased by something we did not understand. Many are the times we could have just laid down and died but the will of life helped us to survive as we traveled through life with yesterday's laughter the balance for today and today's tears a cleansing for tomorrow

    Young ones listen remember who we are remember where we are do not take the word of America listen to them as in caution, live among them as in surrounded live not as they live, live to appreciate. Seconds ago an eternity ancient ones decided way before wounded spirits dreams shattering under aggression earth is mother we are children the protection is are innocence. Seconds ago it was decided we are the middle of forever look for your medicine there is a white world gone mad thinking protection is in force greed the machine prays on them but they will not admit it or do anything about it they have no medicine with backs turned on children and elders they do not even care for air or water or land or life too confused to care is no way to live. Young ones listen remember who you are remember where you are remember why you are.

  • Time Dreams - The Pines featuring John Trudell & Quiltman - Official Music Video

    5:48

    From The Pines Above The Prairie -

    We wish to honor the spirit and legacy of John Trudell for future generations to come. The Pines would like to thank Faye Brown, Missy Whiteman, and all of John's family & loved ones.

    Time Dreams was born from the collaboration between John Trudell & The Pines, words & music, as the last track from the 2016 record Above The Prairie.

    The “Time Dreams” video is a collaboration between The Pines and writer, director and producer Missy Whiteman of Independent Indigenous Film and Media. Whiteman, of the Northern Arapaho and Kickapoo Nations, is a director and digital media consultant who’s currently working on a sci-fi/docu-narritive short film titled The Coyote Way: Going Back Home. Footage from this project appears in the video, along with clips from the incendiary 2005 documentary Trudell, produced and directed by Heather Rae. Jonathan Thunder contributes animation to the video, which also features a special appearance by Missy’s son Louis Whiteman representing the younger generation’s connection to Trudell’s message. Louis signs the words “Friend, Together and Peace in Plains American Indian Sign Language, a rare and ancient Indigenous form of communication.

    John Trudell was one of the leaders for the Indian of All Tribes Occupation of Alcatraz in 1969, ran Radio Free Alcatraz, and went on to serve as Chairman of the American Indian Movement (AIM) from 1973-1979. On February 11, 1979, he burned an American flag on the steps of the F.B.I J. Edgar Hoover building in Washington D.C., explaining that he had been taught in the military to burn the flag once it had been desecrated; and that the US government’s treatment of Native Americans, and the country’s classism and racism had desecrated the flag. About 12 hours after the flag incident, in the early morning of Abraham Lincoln’s birthday, a fire “of suspicious origin” burned down Trudell’s home on the Shoshone Palute reservation in Nevada, killing Trudell’s pregnant wife, Tina, their three children and Tina’s mother. The F.B.I. declined to investigate, and the blaze was officially ruled an “accident.”

    He turned his tears into writing poetry and later, music and acting. He released several volumes of poetry and appearing in such films as Thunderheart and Smoke Signals. He also recorded several highly regarded albums combining spoken word and music. A lifelong activist and human rights advocate, he was quoted as saying “I’m just a human being trying to make it in a world that is rapidly losing its understanding of being human.”

    Whiteman says, “‘Time Dreams’ honors the life and legacy of John Trudell in a way that speaks to the hearts of all people.”

    John Trudell and Jesse Ed Davis - Tina Smiled - 1987 version
    -
    This woman this love
    This life we dare to live
    This society afraid of what
    People might see
    Might see through themselves or
    Somebody else
    Might see what isn't meant to
    Be hidden
    And somewhere a wild horse awakens

    Last time I saw her Tina smiled
    Woman woman's love
    Hands so gentle eyes so wise
    Woman touch I am taken
    World so undivided
    Where the high wind flies
    And somewhere a wild horse listens

    In this world if we're going to live
    Some ways we're going to have to stand
    Know your heart know your mind
    Know how to look know what to find
    It doesn't have to be this way
    Hanging like a cloud
    Society fear of love over our heads
    Shadows in daylight
    And what have they done
    What have they done but set it in motion
    Set it in motion and now it has begun

    Times I spent wandering
    Back to who we are
    Nights we held on
    Scattering ourselves among the stars
    You and me over there
    You and me over here
    We burned through to a thousand suns
    And somewhere a wild horse runs

    Last time I saw her Tina smiled
    Woman woman's love
    Hands so gentle eyes so wise
    Woman touch I am taken
    World so undivided
    Where the high wind flies
    And somewhere a wild horse listens

    Eternity expanding from her hand
    Sun rise moon rise grains of sand
    Acts of man violent face
    Done in silent night
    Won't silence freedoms voice
    Here we are reflecting light
    Disappearing reappearing
    Shadows on the run
    And what have they done
    What have they done but set it in motion
    Set it in motion and now it has begun

    Tina smiled yeah she smiled
    Pretty woman indigo red
    Unravelling confusions heavy thread
    Entering and leaving tapestries of
    Changing worlds
    Spirit weaver your love has spoken
    And somewhere a wild horse
    Won't be broken
