No false prophets.

Sweatlodge charlatan exposed
'Authentic' native experience
Completely run amok
Innocent lives lost

Spirituality for sale
The obvious clue
Exercise basic prudence
Phony Prescott healers

Strong medicine kills
If you disrespect
Stringent human purification
Has no tolerance

Native American culture
Cannot be replicated
False prophets preach
Do not listen

Cowboys and Indians
Still exist today
The Lone Ranger
Never became Tonto

True Indian therapy
Hot steam purges
Lifetime of sin
Time to repent

Maii Productions

I never thought of The Lone Ranger as Tonto. We grew up respecting the indian. I maybe a tenth Cherokee and a little Apache ( according to dad). We were taught indian lore. He even had a loom where he made indian head dresses, belts etc. WE always dressed as real as we could on a railroad conductors salary. I admire the strength in your words and I feel the inbetweens.
I thank you!

Much gold in this mine.
