TwoCirclesBB Taken Down

A note to all those who signed up for the Two Circles Bulletin Board: Unfortunately, hackers from all over the world started trying to use the TwoCirclesBB for ads ranging from the ridiculous to the downright criminal. That prompted the decision to discontinue bulletin board offering. In its place we've initiated a listserve. To sign up CLICK HERE.

Doctrine of Discovery

In July of this year John Dieffenbacher-Krall, Director, Maine Indian Tribal-State Commission gave a sermon at St. David's Episcopal Church in Barneveld, NY calling on the Episcopal Church to repudiate the Doctrine of Discovery. CLICK HERE to download a copy of that sermon.

Here is a YouTube video that many Ancient Voices participants may have already seen. For those that have, it is worth viewing again. For those who haven't, itís a worthwhile investment of just under 9 minutes.

Incidentally, we are developing an Ancient Voices YouTube page at http://www.youtube.com/user/ AVCCCommunity. Itís in its embryonic stage and needs content. All help would be welcome.

Majestic Canyon de Chelly rich in beauty, Indian culture
"Canyon de Chelly is one of nature's cathedrals - an immense space encompassed by sheer walls, a sacred place of light and shadow where hushed tones seem appropriate." Read the entire article by John Stanley The Arizona Republic
