Recently, we have been considering boundaries and dishonor as we build toward an understanding of the role of protocol in removing shame and restoring honor. The reason for pursuing this topic is it’s relation to recognizing the sins of our fathers and making amends. It also involves our humbling. Leviticus 26 says,
40 ‘If they confess their iniquity and the iniquity of their forefathers, in their unfaithfulness which they committed against Me, and also in their acting with hostility against Me— 41 I also was acting with hostility against them, to bring them into the land of their enemies—or if their uncircumcised heart becomes humbled so that they then make amends for their iniquity, 42 then I will remember My covenant with Jacob, and I will remember also My covenant with Isaac, and My covenant with Abraham as well, and I will remember the land. 43 For the land will be abandoned by them, and will make up for its sabbaths while it is made desolate without them. They, meanwhile, will be making amends for their iniquity, [a]because they rejected My ordinances and their soul abhorred My statutes. 44 Yet in spite of this, when they are in the land of their enemies, I will not reject them, nor will I so abhor them as to destroy them, breaking My covenant with them; for I am the Lord their God. 45 But I will remember for them the covenant with their ancestors, whom I brought out of the land of Egypt in the sight of the nations, that I might be their God. I am the Lord.’”
Well, earlier this week on the Remnant Road radio show, friends Al McCarn and Daniel Holdings hosted three Native American leaders who are also Hebraic followers of the Messiah and his Torah. This show is excellent, though you will have to wrestle through a few audio gremlins as the enemy clearly tried to keep this show from happening.
There is much we can learn as we communicate with our Native American brothers and seek to amend for past iniquities.

Charting the First Nations Awakening
One of the most significant – and for most people unexpected – developments in the awakening of the Hebrew Nation is the simultaneous awakening of Native Americans to reclaim the beauty, strength, and redemptive gifts YHVH bestowed on them. As stewards of the land they bear great authority. Sadly, the history of the last 500 years has featured endless waves of oppression and domination by newcomers from Europe and Africa who disregarded not only the position of the First Nations, but the great gifts they were ready to share.
Our three guests understand these things very well. Jesse Running Bear of the Tuscarora Tribe of North Carolina has traveled across the continent, observing and facilitating the awakening of First Nations people to the message of redemption in Yeshua and to their Hebraic heritage. He joins us from Bismarck North Dakota, along with Elder D. Joyce Kitson of the Standing Rock Lakota (Sioux) Tribe. D. Joyce shares with us her passion for seeking and offering forgiveness as the only way to overcome the bitterness that has plagued her people. Our third guest, David Bowen of the Cheyenne River Lakota Reservation in South Dakota, insights YHVH has downloaded to him about healing the breach between First Nations and non-native people.
Our visit with these three native leaders is the first of what we hope to be many shows aimed at finding new ground for fellowship between peoples who have so much to offer one another.
