Please consider sponsoring a Painted Lady butterfly for our Native American music video. A $3 donation helps sponsor the freedom of one butterfly. Our goal is to raise at least $120 and mass release 40 butterflies during filming this week. Directed by Filmmaker Arel Avellino of Avellino Studios the music video features Native American Flute Musician Alan Stanz playing the beautiful Woodsounds Flute as he plays sacred songs in the center of a 12,000 year old Paleo-Indian site in Northern Virginia. Your donation not only sponsors the butterfly, which is capable of changing its entire genetic DNA from egg to birth, you sponsor an amazing force of energy and transformation for our church. Our Native American Church of Virginia’s mission is “helping leaders first” especially wounded warriors and Indigenous People. Any additional money raised will be used to:
Help us provide help to those who are hurting.
Help students make their own films while learning about Native American culture.
Feature the beautiful sounds of nature and the Woodsounds Flute.
Location prep and random shots.
On This Day (6/2/1924): In 1924 the Indian Citizenship Act was signed into law. Also known as the Snyder Act, the Act granted full U.S. citizenship to America's indigenous peoples, called "Indians" in this Act. (The Fourteenth Amendment guarantees citizenship to persons born in the U.S., but only if "subject to the jurisdiction thereof"; this latter clause excludes certain indigenous peoples.) The act was signed into law by President Calvin Coolidge on June 2, 1924 as seen in this photo with President Coolidge and four Osage.
Sponsor a butterfly and become a part of this beautiful embodiment of the strength, grace, and hope to show we can all help with the suffering in the world.
Please support our cause. It is easy to sponsor a butterfly online by clicking the Paypal button above. If you wish to make your donation in honor of someone, please write the information in the notes section when making your Paypal payment. 100% of your sponsorship goes directly to the Native American Church of Virginia and is 100% tax deductible.
