Choctaw Medicine Man Panther told of how he was designated to follow the path of the Heyoka, The Trickster. One day as a boy he was being walked to school by his mother. A dark storming cloud came up from the west. His mother told him to run to his Grandfathers house. He made it as far as his Grandfathers yard when a lightning bolt struck so close to him that the heat and energy flipped him over. He landed on his feet still running and went up on his Grandfathers porch. Being struck by lightning is Spirit designation as Heyoka.
As an adult, Panther was climbing a hill one day recieved a vision of three Grandfathers. He was told that he was going to go north to the Lakota Land, where they would give him foundation of spiritual knowledge to take back to his people, because the Choctaw had lost their ways. Now he is seeing spirituality rising among the Choctaw.
An Inipi cerimony for a Sun Dancer was led by Panther on the night of June 15. As we prayed inside the totally dark lodge, there appeared two redtangular shaped lights, about the size of bricks, dancing near the upper east wall. Panther commented that there were six spirits inside the lodge. After the lodge, we learned from others waiting outside that, during the sweat lodge, a high UFO went across the sky. At first it looked like a satellite, but then it stopped and gyrated in geometric patterns of flight.
Eagle Pipe Man, a Lakota Medicine Man, is a carrier of the Elk Medicine Bundle. HGis spiritual path was deepened when he almost died duing brain surgery, and had an out of body experiance where he met an old Indian Medicine Man adjusting energy particles coming out of peoples bodies.

These are sacred ritual object alters kept by certain designated spiritual leaders as shrines where knowledge of the Star People is gathered, kept and honored. The Lakota Elder said that Star Nation Alters send blue light up to the heavens, which the Star People can see as a beacon.
He told of doing a cerimony for a woman, during which a Star Elder came in and landed nearby. The Star Visitor was tall, gray, and had large eyes. Eagle Pipe Man did the Calling In Song, and the Tunkashilas came in, went over and held the Star Elder. The Star Elder told them some things, "Mother Earth is dying" there planet is dead, lifeless. He is telling Holy Bull this because the Native Americans have the spirit. Mother Earth will clean the ozone.

That Dream was fulfilled on June 23rd at Greengrass, South Dakota. in a unprecedented joining, the three sacred bundles of the Sioux, the Cheyenne and the Arapaho were brought together. This fulfills a prophecy about the beginning of the Thousand Years of Peace.
