Ojibwa and his very beautiful wife state of confusion.

On Wednesday, December 26, 2012, Sara and Ann once again opened their home to Daily Kos Koscadians to welcome Ojibwa and state of confusion for several Native American ceremonies, including the Blessing of llbears quilt and a Pipe Ceremony.

The actual ceremonies themselves were not photographed. Here is llbears beautiful quilt:

Ojibwa gives his approval! It really is a beautiful quilt with warm rich colors. (I think it is one of my favorites.)

During the Blessing Ceremony Ojibwa sung his Bear Song and played a drum. It was beautiful.

Outside on the street in front of Sara and Ann's home, people could hear Ojibwa singing and playing the drum. They stopped and listened. It was a beautiful ceremony; I'm getting goosebumps just writing about it.

Let's see if I can name the kossacks: Sara in the back holding up the quilt, Horace beside her, the beautiful Miss Love, Miss Fairy kneeling to pull out the quilt for inspection, navajo with her super-duper camera, Ojibwa, back to the front Horace's gorgeous daughter, I call her Miss Beautiful (cause she is), state of confusion with her long, beautiful hair.

I could not get everyone together for a group photo so Oregon Gal assisted me..... ;D

Navajo, Mis Love and llbear left a bit early. I managed to photograph everyone but llbear. I hope navajo got a picture or two of him. Navajo and Miss Love added to the special ocassion by blessing us with their presence. You know you can tell if a person is kind and loving by their children. Miss Love is as charming and intelligent as she is beautiful. Just like her mom. ❤

This was hilarious! I was not expecting this.

As we posed for photos I said there one thing I had to . As I put bunny ears up behind Ojibwa head, HE Kissed Me. I swear! Swoon!

Laughter filled the house as state of confusion shouted, "That's it. After 41 years, our marriage is over!"

state of confusion is so gracious, generous and loving, I want to move to back to Montana.

It was a very special day for all of us to come together to participate in ceremonies for a special kossack (llbear) to wish him good health. To meet Ojibwa and his very beautiful wife, state of confusion. They are more than husband and wife. They are a team. It was wonderful to watch them together.

For me personally it was an opportunity to meet my Street Prophets and Daily Kos American Indian Elder. I was taught to honor my elders, for they are the wise. Meeting Ojibwa was on my list of things to do, after relocating to the West Koast, along with meeting Markos.

Now I just have to meet the rest of you!

BlueJessamine's List:

1. Meet you❤

Seriuosly, my list is long and you are on it.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
