As is the case with most indigenous tribal cultures around the world, Native Americans were (are) possessed of a wisdom and spirituality far surpassing the organized religions forced upon them.
It is heartening that societies everywhere are rediscovering, and adopting, the rich beliefs of those. who occupied lands (now owned, because they did not believe in ownership) later "settled" by those less respectful of nature.

This gal used to live in the nature preserve south of Casa Dorinda off Olive Mill Road.
Glad to see she survived the mudslide and found a new home by the beach.
