    “Lost Church” - Muskogee Co, OK - One room, ramshackle church purportedly built in 1927 but shows signs of massive renovation in the 60s or 70s. A few pews remain but not much else. I experienced nothing here but my associate claimed to feel a presence leaning against her leg, as if a smile child was resting there. Without having known this, she later learned a similar experience was reported by another visitor to the church.

    "The most famous Apache woman was Lozen, the two-spirit warrior shaman who guided her people as they fled across the border, eluding US and Mexican armies, with her medicine of raising her hands to pray and knowing where the soldiers were, to strategize movements and her valiant fighting power. As chief Victorio said,“Lozen is…strong as a man, braver than most, and cunning in strategy.Lozen is a shield to her people.”" From Max Dashu, Suppressed Histories Archives

    Lozen was an Apache warrior woman and Shaman. It is said that she possessed magic powers. Her brother, chief Victorio, is quoted to have said, "Lozen is my right hand, strong as a man, braver than most and cunning in strategy. Lozen is a shield to her people." She fought beside Geronimo and her story is one of a fascinating and highly respected woman who sadly died of tuberculosis in confinement at Fort Sill, Oklahoma. - Colorization of the "only" monochrome known photo of Lozen. - By Wakiya. =
