Medicine Bear Arts Interview

Posted on January 27, 2023 by Dannika Soukoroff

  • How do you think you have grown as a person in the last year?
  • What is one thing you would like to grow about yourself in 2022?
  • What is your sun sign and do you feel you relate to it? If you know what your moon and ascendant signs are, do you feel like they reflect in your personality? (If this applies, if you are into astrology).
  • What would be in your shopping bag at Gaia Rising?

Medicine Bear: 

Personally, in the last year have I grown? I believe I've warriored up, really trying to bring attention to what is happening on a global level because I've been watching for the last 15 years, and my uncle Splitting The Sky and my other uncle have been fighting this system for the last 50 years. My uncle passed away, Splitting The Sky but they were fighting tooth and nail for how long trying to bring attention to what was transpiring, [to expose] the, pardon my language, the pieces of trash that have hidden all of these technologies that we have at our fingertips to save humanity from a mass extinction and all living beings who live on Mother Earth. So for this year, I really believe I found my courage to really warrior up and stand up to anybody on this planet who represents tyranny and to not have fear. 

The thing that I would like to grow about myself in 2022 is to reconnect to the land and to the ceremonies. I have practiced indigenous ceremonies that my family has shared with me, and we have had the privilege of meeting elders across Turtle Island and participating in different ceremonies. I don't want to talk about them, but I do participate in ceremonies, and in 2022, I would like to really reconnect to Mother Earth, get my bare feet on the ground, be surrounded by the forest and nature and really push forward with this project, to work on sustainable building and land development and really being an example for all people on Mother Earth that this is the way that we must go back towards being in touch with Mother Nature, so that we can really work together on completing the Medicine Wheel and unifying the people of the earth to be very conscious of how we walk on the planet, and how our footprint is affecting future generations. 

I am an Aquarius, but I'm not so well versed in astrology and the moon, etc. I just listen to some people will share with me, "We're in retrograde so be careful" and different things like that. But I'm not so well versed in astrology. 

What would be in my shopping bag at Gaia Rising? Mortar and pestle, some essential oils, a nice moonstone or labradorite necklace for my daughter, and I love collecting miniature curios. 

I would like to thank you all for taking the time to listen to my story. Many blessings to you all at Gaia Rising, and I look forward to seeing the story in print. Have a wonderful day. Thank you so much. All my relations. Muskegee Muskwa, Speaks The Truth.
