The feature interview is with Henry Red Cloud is a 21st Century Oglala Lakota warrior and a direct descendant of the legendary Chief Red Cloud (Mahpiya Luta), the last war chief of the Lakota and one of the most well know Native Americans in history. Henry lives on the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota in the United States, where he runs Lakota Solar Enterprises and the Red Cloud Renewable Energy Center, a training facility that teaches Native Americans a wide array of new ways to honor the old ways, through renewable energy, food security and sustainable living.

While no individual can speak for all indigenous people, nor capture the breadth of indigenous beliefs about the land, we are honored next issue to interview Henry and delve into his long and deep history of working with the land and natural elements as he shares with us the Lakota approach to honoring the earth, the elements and all that is in sacred motion.  Please join with us for this very special interview by sending in your questions to ask Henry about the Lakota way of life, working with the land and respecting all life.

Re: Aontacht calls for articles; papers and questions.

Awens to Aontacht: 

I have submitted an Article on Herbology for the Next Issue along with my 2013 Lughnasad 3X3 Triad Poem.


But I have a question for Henry Red Cloud:

Is he familiar with the Lakota Joint Care Medicinal Products?:


It is just that I read one of the Bottle Ingredients and it said it has Devil's Claw Herb in it which is good for Arthritic Conditions.

The thing is, Devil's Claw Herb is Native to SOUTH AFRICA, not North America.  So I would like him to comment on how they are able to promote their Product as based on North American Native Herbal Medicine when there is an Ingredient that is Not Native to North American but to S.Africa.
