HOCKEY-HEADRESS

Image from APTN. Q: Is it cool to wear a headress in public (for fun and/or profit)? A: Well in this case this guy is a Cree from SK so..yes. Right? WRONG answer. Sport teams appropriation is yet another issue. Story link

From dictionary.com – Definition of indomitable

adjective
that which cannot be subdued or overcome, as persons, will, or courage; unconquerable:
an indomitable warrior.

One thing is understanding that every comment you make, every feeling, every judgement, every decision comes from misguided ‘teachings’. Just assume you are wrong and start working from there.

DJShub has a lot of followers in this area. He’s coming to perform at the folk festival in July.
