What is the GOOD RED ROAD

The Red Road is the term used by Native American Indians to describe the path each individual travels during their lifetime on Mother Earth.

The Red Road as described by two Native American Spiritual leaders:

“One may be of any race or of almost any religion and walk the Red Road. The Road is a path, away. It’s full meaning is the way one acts, the methods one uses, and what directs one’s doing. There is more to the Red Road then spoken word or written words on paper. It is behavior, attitude, a way of living, a way of “doing” with reverence – of walking strong yet softly, so as not to harm or disturb other life.” — John Redtail Freesoul (Cheyenne-Arapahoe), Spokesman for the Redtail Hawk Medicine Society, from his book “Breath of the Invisible” a Quest Book.

“Together the two path form a north-south road, the good Red Road. This is your spiritual path, the one where you will be happiest.” — Medicine Hawk, Council Chief of the Shadowlight Medicine Clan, and an award winning author, from “Indian Ceremonies” by Medicine Hawk & Gray Cat, from Inner Light Publications.

Since the Red Road has different aspects to each individual purpose, I believe it is appropriate for me to share with you my personal thoughts regarding my walk on the Red Road.
“As I travel down the Red Road sometimes for what appears to be no fault of my own, one of the four parts faulters – the physical, the emotional, the mental or the spiritual. At those times I must strengthen one or more of the other three aspects the emotional, the mental and the spiritual so as to achieve harmony to continue my trip on a smooth path. It seems the further you go on this path the steeper the slope becomes.

For an indepth view on Native American Spirituality, I recommend you read the two books above. Breath of the Invisible, and Indian Ceremonies.

Blessings to all who read this and strive in their own way to walk the Good Red  Road

  1. Interesting post! I happen to live on a north-south bound road…and I aspire to walk the way of the red road. Question about your blog: Are you taking all the right steps to increase your number of visitors and traffic? e.g. using tags so the search engines can find you, publishing each post, etc? You have good content and it needs to be out there.

    Thanks for this post. I have not read much detail about the Good Red Road before, only to know that it is man’s physical walk in life. Nice to hear from two different Native teachers how they view this. Thanks again. I appreciate the information here, Alia
