Wonder Woman Easter egg

“Film Review: Eugene Brave Rock Speaks Blackfoot to Wonder Woman in DC’s Best Film Ever”

I woke up this Saturday morning to see a 9:15 a.m. showing of the DC Comics and Warner Brothers feature Wonder Woman, starring Gal Gadot as the fearless Amazonian heroine. I was thrilled that Native American actor Eugene Brave Rock, an actor and stuntman that ran a stunt ‘boot camp’ on The Revenant with numerous other Hollywood credits under his belt, would be appearing in the film.

What I didn’t expect was to be overcome with emotion when Eugene Brave Rock’s character ‘Chief’ met Wonder Woman, who was spectacularly portrayed by Gal Gadot. Why? His first words to her were in Blackfoot. Even better, he introduced himself as Napi, the Blackfoot demi-god who is known as a trickster and a storyteller.

Congratulations, Indian country. We all get to share a secret moment in the Wonder Woman movie. If you speak Blackfoot, the magic will surely be tenfold.

Properly

I don't want to have anything to do with the spectacle. Come Monday morning, I have to look my neighbors in the eye.

I'm more interested in being a good human and being a decent neighbor than being a good Pagan, especially a good Public Pagan that supports all the Proper Causes.

Holy places

Holy places are dark places. It is life and strength, not knowledge and words, that we get in them. Holy wisdom is not clear and thin like water, but thick and dark like blood.

Penetration into the darkness

The penetration into the darkness surrounding God - the gulf between one's self and the All - involves the willingness to relinquish the comforting certainties of one's religion and risk heresy, if that is where the path leads.

Tired old battles

Science and religion are still fighting their tired old battles for control of the world - a cheap wrestling match which has long since ceased to interest any but the most deeply hypnotized marks.

Dreaming

Esoteric teachings suggest that, rather than being 'illusory' compared to the 'real' world of waking life, the dream world is indeed real. Some traditions, like those of the Australian aborigines, even suggest that the forms of the 'Dreamtime' underpin earthly reality.

Technopagan

Some technopagans use technology in their rites and rituals. But using technology isn't what makes a technopagan. Recognizing the Divine in human endeavor AND honoring the magick, that's what really makes a technopagan.

Form joining function in something greater than either. And using what the gods inspired people to make.

❝No American judge should have the power to decide matters of faith…❞ 

No American judge should have the power to decide matters of faith, anymore than they have the power to decide the color of your bedsheets. Faith is solely a matter between you and the Divine. In the words of the late Peter McWilliams, Ain't Nobody's Business If You Do.
