Of the members, there are several who are ministers and pastors. Of those, there is one I’m featuring here today due to his fascinating ancestry, personal and professional history. He’s Rev. Warren Petoskey of Michigan, USA. Regardless of your faith, race or heritage, he, his family, his ministry and his website are well worth getting to know.
Warren Petoskey is also named Biidassige. In English it translates to Light that is Coming. It’s also the name of his great-grandfather, who was born at daybreak and after whom the city of Petoskey, Michigan is named.
For a time, Rev. Petoskey served as the House Manager and Spiritual Traditionalist Counselor in a Native treatment program. During that time, he began seeing a common issue troubling the native clients in his care. He also realized his own family had encountered the same trouble.
In his desire to develop a method of help and healing for a common core issue many Native Americans are challenged with, Rev. Petoskey embarked on a series of research expeditions and presentations throughout the country.
The Petoskeys received a bit of funding for their expenses, it wasn’t enough to cover total costs. Therefore, He and his wife, Barb, ultimately provided much of it from their own pockets, derived from book and art sales along the way.
As I’m not inclined to provide spoilers, I’ll withhold further information on what the Petoskey’s were researching, so you can make the journey with them on the Dawnland Native Ministries website.
Prepare for fascination via images, music and tribal truths
When you visit the Dawnland site, plan on spending some time. There are several areas to explore and all of them are intriguing. In my own visit, I didn’t see a site blog, however, I’m hoping an appeal to Rev. Petoskey will possibly bring one about. He and his wife have an amazing amount of experiences to share, both personally and professionally. I’m confident they’d have a wonderful supply of blog content that would easily maintain interest and easily establish a dedicated and growing number of supportive readers in no time. It can’t hurt to try and see, right?
As it is, I was thrilled to show up and see Rev. Petoskey play the flute and tour the site’s image galleries. They rate as awesome-sauce. ☺
For now, there is an ample supply of beautiful music, artisanal representations and videos for you to enjoy your way through. While there, please consider using the Contact tab and leaving the Petoskeys a note that you came by for a tour. The site has had a great deal of work put into it, and that’s a great way of letting them know their efforts are appreciated and being put to good use.
I hope 2017 is a year filled with blessings for you.
Thank you for your visit today and hope you'll be quick in paying a visit to the Dawnland Native Ministries site.
