According to Buddha

The roots of war are in the way we live our daily lives — the way we develop our industries, build up our society, and consume goods.

down the ditches a thousand years
the waters grew ira’s peoples’ crops
’til the white man stole their water rights
and the sparkling water stopped
now, ira’s folks were hungry
and their land grew crops of weeds
when war came, ira volunteered
and forgot the white man’s greed

Royal Alberta Museum honours Indigenous stories ~ RAM, Etown ~ November 2018

  1. Excellent. And I like the toning.

    • humble thank you Rabirius loving some LR features as a learn along the way…I do like the images to hold together visually 🤓 have a snappy day ~ smiles hedy ☺️✌️

  2. Nice collection of photos, Hedy. It took a while for the first one to coalesce in my brain. Good photos make the eye AND the mind move. Cheers for a great week.

  3. Great post Hedy and I love “Johnny Cash…The Ballad of Ira Hayes”. Thanks for sharing!!!

    • so many people don’t know about Ira Hayes or our Canadian Indigenous soldiers…it was a heartfelt moment for me in out new museum…the honouring of their stories here is done beautifully and is educative…thank you for your comments Paulo ~ compose a peaceful day ☺️✌️💫

  4. War changes everything,
    and nothing

  5. Very lovely captures. Why are the cruelties of our native peoples never thought of in our society. They had a life we should have looked up to. Lived so well in peace with our Mother Earth. Peace be with you Hedy, have a great week.

  6. War and genocide are the ultimate consequences of an economy based upon the 7 principles of war. The pictures illustrate it; the remnants of a civilization that was destroyed in the name of the economical reality and progress.

    • according to. Sun Tzu ‘The highest Generalship is ‘to compel the enemy to disperse his army, and then to concentrate superior force against each fraction in turn’….as I read a wee bit from Sun Tzu I think he is advocating the timely use of a “bluff”….and please know Urban I know nothing about war…other than the silences lived by my Dutch parents…I like what Eddie wrote…war changes everything and nothing…compose a peaceful day ~ smiles hedy ☺️✌️

  7. Beautifully done, and thought-provoking. It seems simple, what should be done, but then life comes in and we lose the way.

  8. I just watched an evening on television about our fashion industry, destroying third world countries. I know it all, but what is the way things can be changed.
    Beauty has a price. Why are women killing our world. It’s a sad day.

    • not sure which documentary you watched…dress, body, culture are loaded in our increasingly discerning domestic market…I remember after traveling in Korea and France I made a decision to not purchase clothes for one year…I know I have changed my purchasing practices…

      I remember meeting Jean Kilbourne years ago…I also remember seeing Killing Us Softly: Advertising’s Image of Women is an American documentary…it’s a layered issue for sure 🤓 it’s a snowy day here…have a good writing day ~ smiles hedy 😊

  9. Great hues Hedy.
    I’ve begun to wonder whether War might be mankind’s ultimate “purpose”?
    Scary isn’t it?

  10. Yes, the American Bison, a way of life to the First Nation Americans, deliberately wiped out by the White Man…
