Elder’s Message of the Day

“Laughter is a necessity in life that does not cost much, and the Old ones say that one of the greatest healing powers in our life is the ability to laugh.”
–Larry P.Aitken, CHIPPEWA

Laughter is a good stress eliminator. Laughter causes healing powers to be distributed through our bodies. Laughter helps heal relationships that are having problems. Laughter can change other people. Laughter can heal the sick. Laughter is spiritual. One of the greatest gifts among Indian people has been our ability to laugh. Humor is natural to Indian people. Sometimes the only thing left to do is laugh.

                                                         Great Spirit, allow me to laugh when times
                                                           get tough.

Humor is natural to everyone.

The Smile Revolution

Words and music by Victorio Roland Mousaa and Mindy Smile Fradkin Mousaa

” I walked around the corner,
   and passed a grin to my friends,
   They all smiled and then I realized,
   I passed it on to them.

   The people who saw us
   all started smiling at my friends,
   then we all soon realized
   we passed it on to them.
 
   Yes, a simple smile will do,
    around the world then back to you
    it’s called The Smile Revolution,
    that goes around the world and then comes back to you.

    The news reporters with their camera’s
     turned and all smiled with us,
     the people in the town saw,
     then all started smiling with us.

     The national news saw us smiling
      then forgot their problems in the cities
      they started reporting smiles
      throughout the nation all over our countries.

      Yes, a simple smile will do,
       around the world then back to you
       Its called The Smile Revolution,
       that goes around the world and then comes back to you.”
