Introduction Of A Friend
I have asked Sakoieta to contribute articles to this blog site that will reflect insight into his lifestyle and endless wisdom. Although we come from different backgrounds and heritage, I have found that we share many things in common. Our love for the land, nature, our religious belief, our family values just to name a few.
We first met when we both participated in a Christian blog site several years ago. We both left that site as the other participants found it difficult to believe that an Indian could also be a Christian. Sakoieta introduced me to another good friend - Robert Soto - a member of the Lipan Apache tribe in Texas. Robert is the Christian pastor of three churches and has a world wide ministry that is bringing the Indian to Christianity. Robert tells me that less than 1% of Indian's are Christian, and have strayed from any faith at all.
So when you see an article by Sakoieta in the future you will know who he is, and I am sure you will find his wit, wisdom and values educational and valuable tools for sound living. Most of all he is my friend whom I have learned to value greatly. Watch for his articles in the future. I a very excited to have him as an occasional contributor to this blog.
