Lojah on the Musician’s Guild

Lojah was recently a guest on the Musician’s Guild, a great internet show run by Richard Dunlavy and Darryl Oehmsen in Pensacola, Florida where they discuss the local music scene and promote the various players and performers in it.

In this episode 5 of the series Lojah plays a few tunes and talks about his musical upbringing and how and why he came to use the moniker Lojah.

The Medicine Wheel

The Medicine Wheel symbol is a central spiritual and philosophical device used by many Native American communities. It consists of an equal-armed cross placed inside a circle. This is also a universal symbol that can be found throughout the nations of the world from the ancient days to today. It has been called by many names; the medicine wheel, sacred hoop, solar disk and sun circle, just to name a few. This symbol is central to Muskogee philosophy and is the basis for the layout of traditional ceremonial dance grounds. (READ MORE)

Lojah’s Spring Greeting

Lojah_name_logo_white-small-jpg

Hello friends and family!

 

Spring is finally here and I think the weather is actually going to stick around.  It has been a little while since I last sent out an update, because I’ve been so heavily involved in working for Veterans Healthcare reform, and some pretty significant life changes that I let my regular updates slip by.

 

 

Well, I’m back at it again.  So far 2016 is proving to be a great year for me and I have some really cool updates to share with you.

 

MY ARTIST PAGE

For starters I opened up my artist page on Lojah.com where you can view and purchase my personally hand painted artwork, inspired by Indigenism, nature, arcane symbolism and personal vision. It’s still in its formative stages but it’s going to be great as it grows.

 

THE MOODY VIEW

I consolidated my old blogs into a single blog called The Moody View, easier to follow and keep track of. It’s a place where I talk about art, music, culture and modern critiques. I’ll be covering a lot of my experiences as I create more art and further explore life.

 

I’m looking forward to hearing from you.

A message to the Followers of this Blog

Hey, everyone.  Thanks you all for following my blog here.  It really means a lot.

I’m transferring the majority of my blogging efforts over to The Moody View, a place where I feel I can more freely express my perspective, theories, philosophies, and artistic interests.  I really recommend that you follow me over there as well.  That is going to be my primary blog from here forward.

I hope to see you over there, too.

Pensacola, The Place I call Home

I’ve called Pensacola home for the majority of my life.  I’ve lived plenty of other places, but my roots run deep in Northwest Florida. Casually strolling down Palafox Street, I’m often amazed at just how much history is packed into such a small space.  Along with art galleries, music venues, and bars that specialize in craft-beer, are mixed the small Plaza Ferdinand VII, and at the end of the road the circular Plaza de Luna situated on the front of Pensacola Bay where you are confronted by a bronze statue of the conquistador Tristan de Luna.  Downtown Pensacola contains several little archaeological sites and reminders of its colonial past (more).

Lojah Supports Idle No More

Idle No More is an important movement for indigenous people and our supporters throughout the world. It started with a Canadian First Nations response to being cut out of the historical legislative process concerning traditional Indian land and wilderness.  Attawapiskat Chief Theresa Spence of the Attawapiskat nation began a hunger strike in protest.
