"I personally do not recommend EVER making movies regarding negative images of the Amish community. Doing so is against their religious and beliefs. You do not make Ungraven Images when it comes to Amish culture it is highly disrespectful to them as a whole. Many will not ever even allow a photograph or a picture of them to be taken of them for this reason. If you want to take their picture always ask, if they state no, respect it and move on..  Now I have biological ties to this particular Amish community.. So when I read about things like this.. I think would I like to see a movie made about a seriously traumatic event that happened in my own family community? .. do I want media and people from a culture I do not live in and understand to exploit that event? Of course not..  So, Please, do not make this movie, or any movie regarding a negative or traumatic event in an Amish community.. with the exception is if the community approves and votes on it.. Otherwise.. No way, do not mess with it is highly disrespectful. Do not mess with this part of my own biological family.. That is where my Dutch heritage comes in... If this movie was already made.. do NOT air it.. have been fairly warned.. " -  DNatureofDTrain

3/201/2010 a story, and General News

3/20/2010 3:47:00 AM

General News

"I have been having interesting dreams of exploring old places, that were under rennovation..
These dreams have been reminding me of a man I used to see about twice a year.. He would stop by my sisters house around Thanksgiving, New Years, and Easter..
My sister said he showed up every holiday.. I knew whoever he was he was important as I watched him walk to everyones houses.. But I had no idea when I shook his hand, gave him a hug, and talked about money, and houses, and cats with him..
That I was shaking hands with one of the richest people in the US. I knew he was a part of massive rennovation projects in Beloit, WI.. and was impressed.. the last time I saw him was standing at the mural of the old Iron works building..
Happily looking at the cleaned up creek rennovated building and loving the awesome mural.. And that was the last time I gave him a hug before he passed on .. oddly falling off a roof.. Who was he? Ken Hendricks. He offered me a job numerous times..
But, to me he was a stranger, and I was a under 18.. and I knew my parents would not approve.. I am 30 years old now, and they still do not want me to work.. They want me to stay around and help them out.. I have no problem with that.. part most of the time as long as I am allowed proper rest, and destressing time..  But.. I do regret turning down the opportunity of learning how to build houses.. as I do love to swing the hammer.. Maybe I'll do that if I can not get into railroadin.. but for now I just run my stores.. and hope and pray that Kens Spirits, along with my ancestors and friends are their guiding and watching over me.. and that maybe some of the hard earned luck of the billionare was blessed to me through the generous handshake. I knew I had many powerful ties and connections and inspiration with my life.. But the more I really start to learn about some of who I have met yearly.. The more I wonder.. as in wow.. and how? :) ..
I am glad I did not know to be honest, as I got to meat the generous side of him the nice old man.. That always had me scratching my head who is this man that shows up handing us 20s and 50s? .. I only spent that money on my cat supplies I would still have it to this day if it was not stolen from me.. but.. that if course would go to my medical bill.. The best part about that is my parents would wonder.. How did I always come home with more money than I had when I left. I could not tell them.. That Ken Hendricks stuck it in my coat collar after I said no thanks, Money is evil lol :) ... But.. that evil money rescued my pets from fleas, ticks, and earmites so it was not so evil after all :) ....Well.. I would later on state money is only evil if used for evil.. As that is the truth.. He would ask us if we knew how to be rich one day. I said I heard of this man fixing up old house and getting rich that way I like that story the best.. and he had happy tears and big old twinkling eye and a hug.. I had no idea at that time... that the man I had heard about.. was him.. until after he passed away. That Happy smile, happy tears and hug.. Is worth more than a billion dollars ever is .. so isn't generosity and kindness. I have turned down many opportunities to be rich.. Not because I do not want to be rich as who does not.. But.. because I saw something I knew good coming out of my handing my 36,000$ lottery to my parents for their new edition.. And turning down a 400,000$ reward to keep one family out of homelessness send one woman to nursing school that contributed to the study of the vaccine for cervical cancer! ..  I guess Ken Taught me well.. about the real meaning of philanthropy and helping others.  I just.. for the last 3-4 years have been searching for that magical way to help myself.. I do not want to be famous I already am.. I am rich too not in money, but in experiences.. I hope someday that my financial riches will catch up with the rest.. So I can improve my health, and also do what I enjoy doing best.. Helping others..  :) ." - DNatureofDTrain

Ken Hendricks

"I want you to all read the article below about him, it is long but please do so, and be inspired!' - DNatureofDTrain


His wife - Diane Hendricks (I am hoping to be able to contact her on a social network.. hope she remembers meeting me.. would be nice to be hired.. somewhere...other than ministry and raindances. :))

"I am often asked why I did not go onto college, or other things.. the main reason is my math abilities stink.. sure over time.. I can figure out most math but it takes me hours or days.. I can't hardly do long division ... I struggled with algerbra had one good teacher had me doing straight A's once.. but then had a Bad teacher the year after who was having me stay after school on nights doing her math club.. as for whatever reason she thought it was more important for me to learn how to count in Aztec numbers.. than to learn my Algerbra.. I am like What am I gonna apply this too? ... I think she assumed I was Aztec heritage.. as when I stated just native American everyone would apply their own sterotypes.. needless to say I did not learn much in math skills and abilities... and I forever hate those math teachers.. One teacher that was doing great with me left in the middle of the school year.. to go teach NASA!  .. I felt so betrayed althought I was happy for her.. the new teacher we had hadn o idea what she was teaching us.. So I ended up left hanging.. as often happened with me either that or the math teachers would get so frustrated with me they would grow violant if I had a penny for every time my hands were Whipped with rulers.. over how they hated how I held the pencil, or this or that. The one thought I loved long division I stood up on the board from the beginning of class to the end as she told the class how proud of me she was for wanting me to do it.. Finally I did my usual trick and Busted all her chalk to tiny pieces cause small chalk was her pet peeve..  At least she would make me go clean the erasers and get new chalk.. as for me that was huge mental relief to get out of the same room, and take a break from the subject that often made all the lightbulbs above my desk burn out.. again and again.  I had one great Math teacher too his name was Mr. Dorn.. He knew I wanted to work on the railroad so we dug around for as many train related math problems as I could find.. For extra credit he helped drill me on those over and over again .. I was surprised how many of those came to me naturally... If I ever get rich and he is still teaching I would hire him to tutor me.. Mrs. Cummings and Mrs. Britain .. NEVER would I want them to be my math teachers again ...The NASA one I never did learn how to spell her long name.. My 6th grade year book was stolen so I can't look it up in that either...I was As and Bs student in all else.. but math .. That sucked.. "  - DNatureofDTrain

Part of this is my Seasonal Affectiveness Disorder.. and the weather is getting nice..

"My own facination with facial hair and beards.. Many of you know I am a woman, and I am always having a small war with family members who want me to get rid of my whiskers.. I sometimes trim them short so they can't see them since they are blond anyhow..  :) But.. if I could ever tame them I was thinking of maybe a Mighty El Insecto style.. Since that seems to be the only natural hair pattern I can get close to growing. but I may have to stick with stubble once in awhile to please my hairaphobic family members. This woman put most male beards to Shame!.. Which also brings me to correct a sterotype.. Many believe most "Native Americans" can not grow beards.. due to genetics many have, can, will and do.. Just our hair pattern is different and not as thick in most cases is all. Other than people like myself with Mixed heritage.. Where it is common for Men and Woman to develop some facial tuft.. I also found it fascinating that before the stupid witch trials how common in many cultures it was for women to grow beards, or wear false beards. Why, American culture is so afraid of hairy legs, beards, and other areas is beyond me... As long as it is clean.. I don't care :) . " - DNatureofDTrain

"We need to stop this if we banned everything that was offensive their would be nothing. I am Lakota, Irish, Dutch and Cherokee.. I was also Milton Redmen's mascot twice.. and the last mascot before they retired it to make Mr. Platts the honoray mascot in retirment... I had no issues with the name Redmen being used. I did suggest to change the Indian Head because that is what the big stink was about more than the word Redmen.. But, I personally was never once offended by it. My native name is Towodi.. Hawk .. Hawk Warrior Spirit Keeper of the Tracks... Later on Milton Wisconsin changed from Milton Redmen to Milton Redhawks. I love the Redhawk name as much as I did the Redmen name.. But if you ban everything that is offensive to a culture or tradition there is nothing left.. I personally can list many mascots I find offensive like the Fighting Irish and Drinking Irish Sterotypes.. But, I am not gonna run around and demand all Pubs to cease used of their Irish Names, and for the Notre Dame to discontinue their mascot.. Why? I believe in the right to freedom of speech and self expression.. and for me a little fake cartoon character representing team spirit and pride, is not something to get all mad and upset over if it does not meet my personal expectations. .. but that is me. I do not want people telling me what I can wear, and how to respresent my team and myself.. I try to be respectful to everyone, but I also know that I can not please everyone all the time. Including my own Native Brothers and Sisters who are throwing fits over these cartoons and characters.. but yet when I got to powwows I see really bad drawings and characters of Custer, and other Non Native Soldiers, and political figures.. If they want to cease it for my White Half they need to cease this behavior for the Red half too.. Do not require schools to abandon these mascots, but instead require.. Them to know what is allowed and not allowed to do appropriately with properly displaying these mascots. For instance. It is NEVER appropriate to imitate Native Ritual or dance... You would not want us dressed up like the fighting Irish with a clerical collar mocking Church Communion on the football field.. with an over exaggerated preist.. that is One example.. I know one thing as a Heinzist.. That sort of irritates me is people assume, every dance I am doing outdoors with my drum or rattle is a raindance, and interupt my prayer and worship rituals constantly.... it has irritated me so much so I usually only do my rituals in total solitude now, or people want to complain about the beat of my drum, but they find it fine to blare Rap music.. at any hour of the day or night.. Now as a Heinzist I practice Native and Non Native spirituality.. It is very eclectic and very mixed.. Yes, I am recognized as a Shaman.. from 11 different traditions considered my Heinzism as a Shamanic path of it's own... But my spiritual Tradition is Not the Same as Native American, or Russian Shamanism.. What I do is very unique and mostly spirit guided or personal to my own experiences.. The Sterotypes constantly bother me, although I do stop and laugh at times.. When cultures clash... There will be a day I will come out of solitude and actually hold public Prayer Circles.. but.. until I have that courage, faith, and feel secure enough to do so. I just wish my Brothers and Sisters of all cultures, and religions would stop fighting, pointing fingers, and nitpicking so much at eachother for little things... Like .. cartoons and mascots.. " - DNatureofDTrain
