Grandfather's Song (Book) - 2/19/2011 11:23:29 AM
"The balance of nature has turned and the animals turned to Xinkwelenowak to protect them...“From this day forever, you will not kill another of my brothers or sisters. We will leave you to your death.” Then, Xinkwelenowak yelled at the retreating hump of meat running away, “You have no souls. You are not human beings!” Such powerful writing; I have added this book to my "eventual shopping list" - I only wish there was one protecting today's animals, especially the Bison and Wolves. The "Clovis White-trash people gone killing without use or discrimination, but there is one who will eventual protect His creation, the Great Spirit made all. When the dust and smoke clears from the comet or asteroid strike, I believe the Native American will be the only one capable of living again in harmony with the Earth mother. White man's days are numbered. I know I'm white this time around but at the risk of you thinking I'm crazy I know I've lived in many past incarnations as Native American. They had the only sane religion: "Live in Harmony with the Earth; take only what you need, give back much." But I rant Chief Joseph said: "It does not take many words to speak the Truth." I don't know too much about the Lenape Indian tribe, I enjoyed the culture and music of many others, Shawnee, Navajo, Sioux. Where can I learn more? Best in writing, Michael Guy pianist/composer

A New Dawn (Book) - 4/24/2007 2:26:24 AM
Jake George has written a phenomenal account of a Native American adventure. 'A New Dawn' is rich in spiritual energy 'A New Dawn' - Jake George defines what Native American culture is. It is not the same today as it was a thousand years ago - even a hundred years ago - where in Native American life, justice is served for an evil. The saga continues from Jake George's book, 'Grandfather's Song'. Using authentic Native words, 'A New Dawn', Jake George forges a successful alliance between the Above World and the Old World. Jake gives his Native voice to his People. Character development is very strong. The relationship between Running Woman and Crying Woman holds a very special place in my own heart. Custom is true to the instructions given; how to survive in harsh climates, a sense of community, herbal medicine and doctoring and authentic Native tools of survival. Jake incorporates a spellbinding transformation, a guise of human to animal and back to human shapeshifting through the characters Elder Fawn and Elk Caller. Jake George has written a phenomenal account of a Native American adventure. 'A New Dawn' is rich in spiritual energy which reflects old-world Native values and survival ties with the land to restore peace to a troubled world. 'A New Dawn' makes its way into modern-day Indian communities to emerge a new generation to sustain cultural identity and respect for being Native American. The name on this book, 'A New Dawn' in the absolute highest spiritual sense, is an educational gift on behalf of all Native American tribes. ~Sage Sweetwater, firebrand lesbian novelist, author of Blue Corn Woman, edited by Jake George

Grandfather's Song (Book) - 6/21/2006 1:22:19 PM
Jake George is a true Native American storyteller. Traditionally, storytelling is one of the most cherished means of instruction for Native Americans throughout this continent, past and present. 'Grandfather's Song' is versed in ancient knowledge and Jake George has given us a gift on behalf of all Native Americans. He does his Lenape heritage proud and it speaks on the pages of 'Grandfather's Song.' My question, after reading 'Grandfather's Song' is "how can we give back to Mother Earth to repay the damages done her?" (There has come a time when ancient Native ideas are ready to be acted is that time...Sage Sweetwater) 'Grandfather's Song' is the beginning of a journey of recovery and a powerful voice from Jake George from the native homeland. Well done, Jake! It is an honor to be in your company. I wish you much success and the passing on of your natural storytelling to future generations for the winds of renewal. ~Sage Sweetwater, firebrand lesbian novelist, author of The Buckskin Skirt Oar Traveler and From The Convent To The Rawhide: The Saga of Sadie Cade And Vi Montana~

Grandfather's Song (Book) - 12/21/2005 1:04:54 PM
This is a wonderful story that brings a Lenape Legend to the surface and warns humanity that if they don't heed nature's warning, they may 'reep what they sow'. This is a tale with great vision! Chrissy K. McVay

My Father's Coat (Short Story) - 3/10/2007 8:34:31 PM
Jake, I just read "My Father's Coat" It was extremely well written and brought back many fond memories of fishing with Bob. I can't help but wonder if one of those treasures could have been a container of egg sacks.

Freedom At All Cost (Short Story) - 12/1/2006 1:07:36 PM
Amen! You speak with wisdom and there are so many that need to hear... too bad they are deaf when the truth is spoken. God bless those who love life and are anxious to learn what is good at every opportUNITY... be at peace with one another, share with each other and respect all.

My Father's Coat (Short Story) - 12/1/2006 12:46:20 PM
Well said, indeed! Your story about your Dad's coat touched my heart and my past. We have a few things in commom... love of family, a desire to preserve what is good in life, love of our faithful canines and a profound desire to carry and pass on what was taught to us by the most prevalent people in our lives. I too, have felt the sting of the freezing winds off Lake Ontario and I too, moved to a better climate, to the Land of the Cherokee. It is much better here in North Carolina and the trout fishing is great! I fought along side some very brave Native American warriors... they have earned a place of respect and honor in my heart. I thank you for sharing... and I thank you for passing on your heritage. Sincerely, Grif.

Freedom At All Cost (Short Story) - 2/22/2006 5:06:53 PM
Very well said. When you think of all the people killed in the names of different religions, it's easy to understand why a separation of church and state was created in the first place. I'm just now reading about all the poor souls burned as 'heretics' or 'witches', etc. When will we ever learn is right...and never say it can't happen again.

Freedom At All Cost (Short Story) - 2/21/2006 6:20:40 PM

Marketing tips for your books or manuscripts (Article) - 10/27/2009 5:40:34 PM
Good article,'ve outlined some informative points. Self-promotion and marketing is the key to success. Another good marketing strategy, like you do, is for authors to edit books! I am very pleased with your Sage Words Services and the professional copy editing you did on my books Blue Corn Woman and Dominga Rio of Cuero by Sage Sweetwater and Blue Sleighty. Be well, Jake. Love, Sage

Killer submission letters to agents and publishers (Article) - 7/25/2009 8:32:13 PM
I cannot agree with you more. I too receive and review book proposals for cheriton house publsihing pty ltd. People repeatedly send in emailed submissions even though I don't accept electronic submissions. They also do not send what is asked for, set it out badly (as you say) or send in badly written rubbish that I can't even read. I received a submission last week of 2 FULL manuscripts from the same would-be author. Both manuscripts were formatted badly, extremely badly written, the paper was crumpled and the first page of the first chapter of one of them had a food stain on it (looked like a finger print in baked bean juice). I threw the whole lot in the bin and then went and washed my hands. Sadly, the great submissions are few and far between. But all publishing companies put up submission guidelines on their web sites which must be followed because if they don't, the author's work will be instantly rejected. Why? Because busy publishers and editors don't have time to waste and so will reject something rather than struggle with it. So when sending in query letters and manuscripts, it's so vitally important to read and follow the submission guidelines to ensure that you give your work the best chance of being published and that your work at least gets read and not tossed straight in the bin.

Killer submission letters to agents and publishers (Article) - 3/26/2008 1:40:00 PM
Wow! Great advice, Jake. Now, if I know I've got the format right, the spelling and grammar are perfect, and the editor sends me a hand-written note saying "more rising action," should I take that as a gold star, meaning "one more try"?

AMEN!!!!!!!! Thank you, Jake, for speaking what's on the minds of many. ENOUGH'S ENOUGH. My twin can't get disability: not disabled enough. A law breaker can get it. I served my country, and can't get decent medical care. A lawbreaker can get it. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH! (((HUGS))) and love, Karla. And then we cater to them in their own language: press 'one' for English, 'two' por espanol. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!

Pardon me (Article) - 6/9/2007 6:54:23 PM
So very to the point. I had a friend once tell me that she didn't vote because "it doesn't do any good because they just cheat anyway." I told her that was a poor excuse because: 1. It's the only voice we've got, and 2. It only took five minutes for me to cast my vote last election. I'm sure she's 'wasted' more time in line at the grocery store, why not give the vote a chance? Great article! Chrissy

Terrorism and religion (Article) - 3/13/2007 12:26:46 AM
Jake, this is a wonderful article on the subject. I really appreciate your understanding that it is power that uses religion as a tool. I believe that power players in the world really know this but to the public they always put religion on the forefront. Kindly quote this article at many places as you could.

Terrorism and religion (Article) - 10/5/2006 1:41:51 PM
Finally some one who has the words for what has been running through my mind. In small words, Thank you.

Terrorism and religion (Article) - 9/3/2006 11:56:12 PM
An excellent article. Most don't have the balls to criticize the corruption of religions. The superstition that "God will get you if you do," weighs heavily on the superstitious and the needy. I don't think God is amused. Elizabeth

I also got this, I recently donated my kidney to my brother, I got very bad pain and a high fever 2 days after, If it wasnt for my brothers doctor insisting on a xray I would of been dead, They needed to take alot of my skin away and I got a graft. Is the hospital responsible? Do I have a law suit? I thought this was caused by not sanitary conditions.

Bigotry in the adoption process (Article) - 4/28/2006 5:23:00 PM
Like so many religions, they pick and choose which passages they want to obey or disobey and how they choose to interpet them. A couple of 18 year old girls who'd been in the foster care system their entire lives stated that 'they would've rather had any parents, even gay parents, just to have someone there for them.' Once they were out of foster care they had no one. No family and no support system. I don't think any God would agree with such cruelty, this is man's hatred and fear of diversity...

(((HUGS))) and much love, your friend in Tx., Karen Lynn. :0 (Stunned at the stark, yet true, reality of what you went through; who ever thought that a simple spider bite could turn into something so lethal?? WOWW!!)

Flesh Eating Bacteria (Article) - 2/19/2006 6:17:17 PM
Jake, A powerful testimony and warning to not let unusual symptoms go by without medical attention; one's life could be at stake. Well researched, from experience and through NFF's detailed website. You, my friend, are indeed blessed to be alive. (((HUGS))) and love, Karla.

Flesh Eating Bacteria (Article) - 2/19/2006 6:06:29 PM
Good heavens! What a terrible ordeal to go through. I printed this out and will read it again, and pay close attention to these types of symptoms.

Crime and Punishment (Article) - 2/1/2006 10:33:26 PM
Very well written. I agree with this in principle, but have mixed feelings in practice. I have often defended the role of the police officer in debates and individual officers through protest. However, I've personally experienced a couple of situations where the police officer absolutely did not offer what we have a right to expect. I think until we find a system for weeding out bad cops, lying attornies, and corrupt systems (and that seems impossible to do in any profession), we must keep an open mind. Especially when capital punishment or life and death situations are involved.

The Drum Beat of life (Poetry) - 2/19/2011 11:36:05 AM
Simple and powerful! Great writing. I was listening to R. Carlos Nakai's powerful flute music the other day and suddenly the drums started. I think it was recorded outdoors in a Canyon. It was so timeless and wonderful that for a moment I forgot what century I was living in. That was refreshing and healing! The Original Music: drums, the wooden flutes, and the chanting of the human voice alone in nature - untutored soul!

If Buffalo could read (Poetry) - 2/19/2011 11:31:23 AM
"Terror in our home land" - the terror is the insane value that puts money before life... And as the Buffalo die once again at the hands of mostly vicious white hunters (as they did once before) - I ask: when will this stop? Probably only when man realizes he is killing himself as well. Great voice here. Yes, "If Buffalo could read" they would cry but sadly they and our ancient friends the wolves are too busy dying. Sad but true.

Sometimes in life we get things that we dont want to accept at first, but if we decide to act smart on that we realize that thanks to what has happend to us has made us the way we are and we are lucky to have this because not everyone has the opportunity to fight against it, which ends up making us stronger inside.

I have referred many to your page. I listen to the Thunderbird Sisters music you sent me Sweet Jesus and it lifts my spirit. Hache Hi Naad...Blessed Be my dear friend from the Lenape Tribe Turtle Clan... Love and Ancestor Light, Sage

I can hear the drums and feel them as well. Well done.

A singular, powerful write, Jake George. Bravo. Peace.

The Drum Beat of life (Poetry) - 2/19/2006 3:22:48 AM
The sound of the drum is a wonderful thing; as are POW WOWs.

The joy of sharing such a gift is indeed a blessing isn't it? In this past year I recieved new eyesight! I share all I know with anyone interested and like you have been given many gifts in my lifetime to share. I salute the warrior within you! Thank you for this uplifting reminder :-)

The Drum Beat of life (Poetry) - 2/18/2006 8:24:06 PM
I have felt the pow wow but have never been to one. I intend to have this experience. Thank you for this sharing.

If Buffalo could read (Poetry) - 2/18/2006 7:44:12 PM
Jake, I don't know if I'd want Buffalo to read. If he could, he'd see the mess white men have made of his land, his kind...let him live as he always has, in peace, at one with Nature and the Great Spirit. A thought provoking, well written poem. (((HUGS))) and love, Karla. If I may, I'd like to track you--is that all right with you?

Do Not Cry (Poetry) - 2/18/2006 7:41:46 PM
Jake, A shining tribute to your father. Very well honor him with your words. Bless you, my friend, and thank you. (((HUGS))) and love, Karla.

The Drum Beat of life (Poetry) - 2/18/2006 4:57:05 PM
Jake, Having attended a pow-wow, and participating in the "friendship dance," I can attest to how the drums move the soul. Beautifully penned tribute to Native American culture. (((HUGS))) and love, Karla.

The Drum Beat of life (Poetry) - 2/18/2006 4:44:50 PM
Pow Wows are always inspiring! Wonderful.

The Drum Beat of life (Poetry) - 2/18/2006 4:40:15 PM
Jake, I would love to attend a Native American pow-wow; I think that would be too cool! :) Wonderful write; very well done! I am saving this one to read again and again! (((HUGS))) and love, your friend in Tx., Karen Lynn. :D

The Drum Beat of life (Poetry) - 2/18/2006 4:22:33 PM
Hache Hi Naad, (Wolf song in Arapahoe) I sent some sage smoke up for you Jake. Pounding my hand drum with a coyote bone. Trickster coyote is playing tag out in my meadow. It's as if she can hear your drum beat all the way from Florida. I am into your ebook and then I received your hardback 'Grandfather's Song' in the mail today! It will make reading easier when I am away from my computer. Thanks Jake George. Blessed Be. Sage

The Drum Beat of life (Poetry) - 2/18/2006 4:09:23 PM
Yes, I can tell by you words in this souldful poem that you were still running on high after the Pow Wow. Good.

What is a warrior (Poetry) - 2/11/2006 1:59:00 PM
You, Sir, are a Warrior of the highest grade. You refused to give into the disease and wallow in self pity. Very meaningful, uplifting poetry; bless you! I am saving this to refer to again and again. (((HUGS))) and love, Karla.

Good thing buffalo can't read Jake! Might be they read about the Great Buffalo Jump that slung them off the cliffs to their death. Pretty much the way modern-day society runs our military men and women into the trenches of war, killing them off. Good poem! Sage

When it comes to making sense, the 'human' animal is clueless...

What is a warrior (Poetry) - 12/13/2005 12:47:55 PM
I agree with your idea of what a warrior truly is. I'm enjoying reading your book 'Grandfather's Song'. The lady at the Blue Moon bookstore here in N.C. said she also ordered two for the shelf! Best of luck and I pray you are able to write many, many more books and short stories.

What is a warrior (Poetry) - 8/6/2005 8:20:48 AM
Thank you for this uplifting and awesome write of how Great Creator Spirit is, and how well those who know him can give inspiration to others, as you have done with this splendid poem! Yes you are a true warrior and one we all can learn from! Eileen

What is a warrior (Poetry) - 8/6/2005 5:05:28 AM
You are definitely one of life's valiant warriors, Jake, and this is a marvelous poem.

If Buffalo could read (Poetry) - 8/5/2005 8:39:53 PM
i think they are blessed for they can't read.. they do not have to worry about the nation's crisis.. ypu did a great job sewing the lines of your poem and trying to expand it... nice poem..

What is a warrior (Poetry) - 8/5/2005 8:36:20 PM
this was tremendously insightful, and expertly told. i'm often amazed how often people instantly equate "warrior" with "war". the true warrior commits to actions fearlessly, and with honorable passion; this includes acts of kindness and mercy, not just violence. this can be seen over and over agian in the warriors of all world cultures: the natives of america, the masai of africa, the samurai, the teutonic knights of europe, the maori of new zealand; the list is endless. all had the same aspects of warriordom in common: honesty, virtue, courage (not blind bravery), and compassion. it's a shame the term "warrior" is so misunderstood. from a modern day follower of bushido. with respects, alex

What is a warrior (Poetry) - 8/5/2005 8:32:44 PM
what is a warrior??... he is someone that can understand others.. despite physical features.. he is someone who is compassionate.. someone that do not think how to be one..

What is a warrior (Poetry) - 8/5/2005 6:31:27 PM
you are an excellent warrior with an outstanding compassionate poem of wisdom...

I totally agree that man was a fool, to make marks on paper... a valuable "tool" was lost - family pride in telling their stories...

Very excellent poetry about your father! Leslie

I think they may say."ear oye I ain't a buffalo, I'm a bison"

they suffered enough without having to read man's justification for his actions

Sometimes I truly believe animals are blessed - since they can't read.

This is very poignant and spoken like a true brother in the Indian nation.
