At any moment, a big-game hunting corporation could sign a deal which would force up to 48,000 members of Africa’s famous Maasai tribe from their land to make way for wealthy Middle Eastern kings and princes to hunt lions and leopards. Experts say the Tanzanian President’s approval of the deal may be imminent, but if we act now, we can stop this sell-off of the Serengeti.The last time this same corporation pushed the Maasai off their land to make way for rich hunters, people were beaten by the police, their homes were burnt to a cinder and their livestock died of starvation. But when a press controversy followed, Tanzanian President Kikwete reversed course and returned the Maasai to their land.

The Dream Catcher

~

Dream catchers are one of the most fascinating traditions of Native Americans. The traditional dream catcher was intended to protect the sleeping individual from negative dreams, while letting positive dreams through. The positive dreams would slip through the hole in the center of the dream catcher, and glide down the feathers to the sleeping person below. The negative dreams would get caught up in the web, and expire when the first rays of the sun struck them.

The dream catcher has been a part of Native American culture for generations. One element of Native American dream catcher relates to the tradition of the hoop. Some Native Americans of North America held the hoop in the highest esteem, because it symbolized strength and unity. Many symbols started around the hoop, and one of these symbols is the dream catcher.

Dream Catcher Lore:Native Americans believe that the night air is filled with dreams both good and bad. The dream catcher when hung over or near your bed swinging freely in the air, catches the dreams as they flow by. The good dreams know how to pass through the dream catcher, slipping through the outer holes and slide down the soft feathers so gently that many times the sleeper does not know that he/she is dreaming. The bad dreams not knowing the way get tangled in the dream catcher and perish with the first light of the new day.
How the Dream Catcher is made:Using a hoop of willow, and decorating it with findings, bits and pieces of everyday life, (feathers, arrow heads, beads, etc) the dream catcher is believed to have the power to catch all of a person’s dreams, trapping the bad ones, and letting only the good dreams pass through the dream catcher.

History of Dream Catchers

Long ago when the word was sound, an old Lakota spiritual leader was on a high mountain and had a vision. In his vision, Iktomi, the great trickster and searcher of wisdom, appeared in the form of a spider. Iktomi spoke to him in a sacred language. As he spoke, Iktomi the spider picked up the elder’s willow hoop which had feathers, horsehair, beads and offerings on it, and began to spin a web. He spoke to the elder about the cycles of life, how we begin our lives as infants, move on through childhood and on to adulthood. Finally we go to old age where we must be taken care of as infants, completing the cycle.

But, Iktomi said as he continued to spin his web, in each time of life there are many forces, some good and some bad. If you listen to the good forces, they will steer you in the right direction. But, if you listen to the bad forces, they’ll steer you in the wrong direction and may hurt you. So these forces can help, or can interfere with the harmony of Nature. While the spider spoke, he continued to weave his web.

When Iktomi finished speaking, he gave the elder the web and said, The web is a perfect circle with a hole in the center. Use the web to help your people reach their goals, making good use of their ideas, dreams and visions. If you believe in the great spirit, the web will filter your good ideas and the bad ones will be trapped and will not pass.

The elder passed on his vision onto the people and now many Indian people have a dreamcatcher above their bed to sift their dreams and visions. The good will pass through the center hole to the sleeping person. The evil in their dreams are captured in the web, where they perish in the light of the morning sun. It is said the dreamcatcher holds the destiny of the future.

For 30 years Chief Raoni of The Kayapo People, has dedicated his life to trying to stop the Belo Monte Dam from being built in his beloved Amazon Rainforest. Helped by the singer, Sting, and many other celebrities along the way, he has met many World Leaders, travelling extensively in his efforts to get the World to Awaken to the Catastrophic Climate Nightmare awaiting the World, if Brazil’s President, Dilma Rousseff, continues ahead with building Belo Monte, third largest and most inefficient dam in the world, in the Rainforest, along with a further 59 Rainforest dams, and over 400 in Brazil by 2030. If Belo Monte continues to be built it will bring Genocide to Chief Raoni’s People, to Shayla Juruna’s, and ALL those dependant on the mighty River Xingu for their very *EXISTENCE* They have tried everything they can think of to stop this dam, but Dilma Rousseff refuses to listen to them, to people around the world, to experts, to the voices behind the MILLIONS of signatures collected against this outrage..

Chief Raoni, now in his 80s, has vowed to fight to the death with his Warriors rather than let Belo Monte be built.

On the 15th June, 2012, on the eve of Rio’s Earth Summit, some of the Warriors, helped by friends, broke through the start of this dam, using shovels, pick-axes and their bare hands! A joyous message was sent out around the world and now thousands are starting to learn about Belo Monte. 11 of those who helped to break the dam, freeing the Xingu River again, are now possibly facing legal charges…As I write this, Warriors of the Xikrin Tribe, (related to The Kayapo) are now in their 17th Day of Protest at the construction site of Belo Monte, having stopped work on the dam by taking keys to the lorries and earth diggers.

This dam is being built illegally, whilst law suits against it are still going on. Judges who ruled against Belo Monte have been removed, then replaced with judges who ruled in favour of it. Corporations who backed Dilma Rousseff’s presidential election have since been awarded massive contracts for Belo Monte. She has refused to listen to the deep concern of the United Nations and Amnesty International about the callous way she has treated the Indigenous People. She refuses to listen to *anyone* it seems, and has turned from a woman who once upon a time, was a guerilla fighter against Brazil’s Military Regime, into EXACTLY the kind of Arrogant, Uncaring, Unfeeling Politican she once despised.
