A personal note to Suraj ‘White – Woman’ Holzwarth:
The Native peoples of this nation have requested numerous times that you cease making a mockery of their traditions in your traveling show – which it is, Suraj – a traveling show, nothing more and nothing less. You speak that you are a healer, guided by the voice of Metatron, here to facilitate peace and unity across all barriers. But actions speak far louder then words and your actions, with their blatant disregard to the requests of the First People of this nation, speak of disrespect through your mockery. You may have, in the beginning, done this by ignorance and not knowing better. But the truth has been presented to you.
From the day that the first complaint and request crossed your ears, Suraj, should have been the day you gathered with your costumers and choreographers and scriptwriters to rework the show.
But you did not.
A true healer, a true spiritual leader would have taken personal responsibility, held themselves accountable and corrected their mistake.
But you did not.
You can not promote peace and unity while disrespecting a people. Your actions now speak of greed and ego. The people gathered at this site are here to speak on behalf of themselves, of their people and of their ancestors.
How will you choose to walk this fork in your road Suraj? Will you let your greed and ego shadow and smother your objectives of peace? We the people see, we the people present this to the public to see. Now it is up to you to decide what you will do.
