1000th post for Nuclear and Indigenous Items of Interest Blog

Yesterday was the 1,000th post for this blog thanks, all of my constant readers for following this blog, which is dedicated to the late Corbin Harney, Western Shoshone Spiritual Leader and Elder.

He was a personalfriend for 20+ plus years and is my son’s godfather.

Thanks, Corbin for all the lessons you taught thousands of people in your worldwide travels. We wish you every day.

We miss love you and miss you every day as we struggled to follow the path which you started us on.  Shundahai, gregor

Shameless call for material for the book”Shundahai Network: A Decade of Resistance:

In addition to writing this blog I also write 4-5 other blogs and have taken over the responsibility of getting “The Shundahai Network” web site running, again.

After our Founder and Spiritual Leader of the Western Shoshone People passed, last July- Corbin Harney, thing sorta fell apart.

But we are up and running again, I am also getting my 18 year old son enrolled in College in Salt Lake City, UT. In addition I am moving to Las Vegas, to be closer to Yucca Mountain, the proposed High-Level Radioactive Waste Suppository Repository, which is located on Traditional Western Shoshone Lands. These Lands encompass parts of several states, UT, CA, ID and NV . Things have been pretty busy lately and once again I am putting a call out to ask for any Video’s, Audio recordings, memories of Shundahai Network actions and also the same for any Corbin Harney Materials.

Western Shoshone leader dies at 87 Associated Press 10:23 a.m. July 11, 2007

RENO, Nev. – Corbin Harney, a spiritual leader of the Western Shoshone who challenged the federal government – and once his own tribe – to oppose nuclear weapons on aboriginal land has died at the age of 87. Harney, a fixture at anti-nuclear rallies, died Tuesday of complications from cancer near Santa Rosa, Calif., where he had hoped to finish a book, according to his family.

“We have truly lost a lot,” said his nephew, Santiago Lozada, who was with him when he died. “

Corbin was a World War II veteran and was known around the world for his activism against radioactivity and nuclear weapons,” said Robert Hager, Reno-based lawyer for the Western Shoshone tribe. “He’s irreplaceable to the Western Shoshone nation.”

“He was someone who just had this gentle spirit but a steely resolve that people should do the right thing,” Hager said. “He thought people would eventually come around and realize the harm people were doing to Mother Earth.”

Hager recalled that Harney bucked his own tribe when the federal government in the 1950s unearthed remains of Western Shoshone ancestors during digging for nuclear testing at the Nevada Test Site north of Las Vegas.

“He picked up the remains and gave them a decent burial,” Hager said. “He took a lot of flack from Western Shoshone leaders who said he should have nothing to do with the U.S. government. But I always respected Corbin for doing what, to the Western Shoshone, was not politically correct but in his mind was the right thing to do.”

Ian Zabarte, secretary of state for the Western Shoshone National Council, said Harney “was always steadfast in trying to prevent the proliferation of nuclear weapons and guard the people against the threats and hazards that nuclear technology poses.”

Harney traveled around the world as a speaker and environmentalist. He received national and international awards and spoke before the United Nations in Geneva.

The family is completing funeral plans, but burial services will be at Battle Mountain Indian Community, where his wife, Marge, is buried.

He is survived by his daughter, two granddaughters, four grandsons; seven great-grandchildren and two great-great grandchildren.

My tribute in Song Form- Box of Rain, preformed by Grateful Dead, lyrics-Robert Hunter, Music-Phil Lesh

Look out of any window
any morning, any evening, any day
Maybe the sun is shining
birds are winging or
rain is falling from a heavy sky -
What do you want me to do,
to do for you to see you through?
this is all a dream we dreamed
one afternoon long ago
Walk out of any doorway
feel your way, feel your way
like the day before
Maybe you'll find direction
around some corner
where it's been waiting to meet you -
What do you want me to do,
to watch for you while you're sleeping?
Well please don't be surprised
when you find me dreaming too

Look into any eyes
you find by you, you can see
clear through to another day
I know it's been seen before
through other eyes on other days
while going home --
What do you want me to do,
to do for you to see you through?
It's all a dream we dreamed
one afternoon long ago

Walk into splintered sunlight
Inch your way through dead dreams
to another land
Maybe you're tired and broken
Your tongue is twisted
with words half spoken
and thoughts unclear
What do you want me to do
to do for you to see you through
A box of rain will ease the pain
and love will see you through

Just a box of rain -
wind and water -
Believe it if you need it,
if you don't just pass it on
Sun and shower -
Wind and rain -
in and out the window
like a moth before a flame

It's just a box of rain
I don't know who put it there
Believe it if you need it
or leave it if you dare
But it's just a box of rain
or a ribbon for your hair
Such a long long time to be gone 
and a short time to be there

Greeting All
