The history between the original people of this land and
the people who colonized this land make it difficult to gain an
understanding of the depth of teachings within the culture of the Native
American Indians. The degree of trust between people is understandably not
there. The oral teachings carried by the Native Elders are not openly shared
with anyone who would ask.
The original intent of my quest
was to gain insight into Spiritual connection and apply this insight to the
way I was living. It was not to change my lifestyle or relationships. What
came about transformed my life as it was and led me on an adventure into a
different world. I found myself transitioning into a person I did not know
existed within myself, my white heritage was enhanced by ancient teachings
we all once had. I learned to wear white moccasins and walk a red
road in order to better understand the original teachings of my white
heritage. The path I followed gave me a new family, a new community and a
new identity beyond anything I could have imagined. The life
style, values and purpose of my life would now change for the rest of my
time. For all of this I can only say, miigwich! thank you!
I am reading your "White mocs..." book for the second
time since you and your son visited the Mesa Creative
Arts Center here in Pennsylvania...
I wanted to say that the visit (and your book) have been
of great value to me...as I read through the book the
first time shortly after you left the Mesa I began to
better understand the meaning of things you did
throughout the weekend...not that we can ever truly
Anyhow, I don't know if you'll remember me but I was the
guy with the prosthetic leg...that works with autistic
kids at a residential mental health center...
Since that weekend I have thought further about my role
in life, my work and the message remains the
same...being a mental health counselor is not where "my
road" ends and that I am "called" to become a
"healer"--I did find it interesting that your business
card was placed in chapter 11--Being a Helper...when I
bought the book...
In addition, I have felt for awhile that the name I was
given by my parents doesn't "feel" quite fit
right...like there is another awaiting me...
Sorry for the rambling, my thoughts are a bit unfocused
at the minute--as my day winds down...
anyway, I hope you are well...and that you will be back
through this area again sometime soon...I definitely
liked your first visit and desire more of what you
Gentle, moving sand written from the heart. This is more
than just one mans journey, it is a glittering diamond
of rare value.
White Mocs on the Red Road
Joe and I both enjoyed reading Jim's book immensely.
Jim offers beautiful insight in The Peoples inner lives with his
prose.His insights and stories will lead you down a path where
Spirit and myth will unite us all.
He is walking the path of a "True" Human Being.

recommend this book to anyone who is interested in knowing
more about the First Peoples, and specifically, the Ojibwe
tribes of the upper Great Lakes and Canada. There are many
books out there today which can give us an understanding of
life and cultures of the First Peoples. This book is more
multi-layered than most in its' approach to helping us go
deeper into their way of life, their thought processes,
their ceremonies and what the ceremonies mean, and finally,
what one must do in order to truly follow and live on the
Red Road. It's one of those books that is so multi-layered
that it begs for many reads in order to appreciate all of
the messages. If you are looking to be told what to do in
your quest of spiritual understanding and enlightenment,
this book is not for you. If you are looking for pointers
and guidance, and hence be able to decide for yourself what
path to take, then this book is a must read. Nice job
Noodin, and Miigwich.
