EP 99 MW LOZEN – This Power Is Mine

In this story we push past the settler faces dynamited into sacred ground to get to the missing history of real American heroes.  Real Witches whose names aren’t told in school, but whose magic has shifted the culture we inhabit.  Hidden, moving in shadows and behind the scenes.  Today we’ll meet Lozen, a warrior, healer and prophet of the Chihenne Chiricahua Apache, who, when the Indian Removal Act was passed in the USA in 1830, was a ten year old girl whose power and difference was already beginning to show.
