Adventures in the American West

The Old West, often referred to as the Wild West, encompasses the period after the Civil War, the rest of the 1800s, and the early part of the 20th century up to 1912, when the last mainland states entered the Union.

American Indians and the Continental Army

The Declaration of Independence accused King George III of unleashing “merciless Indian Savages” against innocent men, women, and children. The image of ferocious warriors propelled into action by a tyrannical monarch fixed in memory and imagination the Indians‘ role in the American Revolution and justified their subsequent treatment. But, many Indian nations tried to stay out of the conflict, some sided with the Americans, and those who fought with the British were not the king’s pawns: they allied with the Crown as the best hope of protecting their homelands from the encroachments of American colonists and land speculators.

    To Be An American Princess

    As I walked through the Trails of my own Tears
    and the ravaging of my own Children

    I found protection from black bears and gators
    I found peace on The Yearling Trail in the Ocala National Forest
    I am able to emerge as Princess White Owl
    To lead our Nation back to wholesomeness and goodness

    Leave our pain and suffering behind and acknowledge safety in Thunder Dome for some of my people
    That peace and love will fill the world up
    To shine a light as The Great White Buffalo
    watches over us ALL…………

    Princess White Owl granddaughter to Chief Sitting Bull a Great Sioux leader for all Native Americans
