Spiritual Leader Inspires Protection for Wild Horses

Growing efforts elevate life, healing and give horses hope

News Release | April 1, 2015 - Spiritual Leader, Daniel Cualtli Yahtl Ramos of the Dine, Apache and Yamassee tribes is recognized as a Good Will Ambassador to the Wild For Life Foundation (WFLF) and its SAVING AMERICA’S HORSES Initiative.

“Daniel’s voice has touched so many people and is continuing to make a real difference in the lives of  America’s sacred and majestic horses,” said Katia Louise, founder and president of the Wild For Life Foundation.  “We are honored to welcome and recognize Daniel Cualtli Yahtl Ramos for his passionate and invaluable support for SAVING AMERICA’S HORSES. As a Good Will Ambassador Daniel’s voice will undoubtedly touch the heart of people and give strength to a more united effort in the protection of America's horses from unspeakable cruelty.”

Daniel Cualtli Yahtl also brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to WFLF’s equine assisted learning program as he continues to serve as a volunteer Chairperson on WFLF’s Wild Horse Sanctuary Committee Board with a focus on youth and adult rehabilitation.  Mr. Ramos recently retired from his lifelong career as a Supervising Children Social Worker for the LA County Department of Children and Family Services where he served the abandoned, neglected and abused children of LA County, and Deputy Probation Officer of the LA County Dept of Probation where he supervised youths in secure and open camp settings. 

Cualtli Yahtl (Eagle Warrior) has been a long time Ambassador to SAVING AMERICA’S HORSES, the movie; first speaking out at one of the film’s most prestigious openings in Hollywood, CA.  He has also contributed invaluable spiritual support to WFLF’s wild horse rescue and recovery mission.  “As a member of the Navajo tribe, Cualtli Yahtl shares a deep connection to our four-legged relatives and ‘carries the fire’ for their healing and protection in his ‘sacred earth walk’,” said Katia. “We are truly honored by Daniel Cualtli Yahtl and his passionate support for the Wild For Life Foundation and our efforts in Saving America's Horses.”

“Katia surely carries the prayer of our ancestors and Elder Councils with her amazing love for our sacred four-legged relatives,” said Daniel Ramos.  “It truly is a great honor to be part of this sacred work.”

As a Good Will Ambassador, Daniel Cualtli Yahtl seeks to raise awareness and support to aid in the protection and preservation of America’s wild and domestic horses from cruelty.  Cualtli Yahtl will continue to share his compassion for these children of our nation as he continues his journeys in the spirit world, sitting in ‘sacred ceremonies’ with “Elders’ of the Apache, Navajo, Hopi and Lokota nations, and those who hold the ‘Sacred Ways’.

“Many truths now are coming forward. We must come together to acknowledge that our four-legged cousins, our sisters and brothers are in peril. We must embrace them and bring back the joy in our world, the love in our world and live together in peace and in harmony,” said Daniel Cualtli Yahtl Ramos.

“Katia, Red Horse Spirit Hawk, is the four-legged entrusted one.  She is their “Angel” mother and daughter of the 4 winds.   I am thankful for Katia’s amazing courage, that what is so wrong must be undone and made right.”

Saving America's Horses - Restoring Hope to Horses in Need

Saving America's Horses announces the launch of its HOPE Tees for Horses T-Shirt Club

~Artful shirts that give back to America's victimized horses~ Now you can conveniently add a new artful limited edition t-shirt to your personal collection each month and bring lifesaving aid to horses in need at the same time. Your support will bring lifesaving aid to the neediest of animals coming into Wild For Life Foundation's rescue and sanctuary program. Proceeds from our HOPE Tees for Horses fundraiser directly provide for the most critical needs of victimized equines.  You’ll be among the first to see each new HOPE Tees for Horses design as it is unveiled.  Members have the option of pre-selecting the size and cut of their choice in advance or mixing and matching the options each month as the designs come out, and we’ll take care of the rest, including the processing and shipping straight to your door.

This months' shirts feature COCHISE, a wild American Mustang. Cochise narrowly escaped slaughter after losing his family and Native range-land home in New Mexico.  His beautiful lifelike image represents hope for America's endangered Mustangs who now find themselves targeted for extinction on their quickly disappearing and threatened Native home lands. 
Cochise was saved from the brink of death by the Wild For Life Foundation (WFLF) and he is seen on this month's t-shirt running to meet his surviving family members as they arrive to WFLF's sanctuary. Cochise and his small family band are among our recent additions who are healing under WFLF's wild horse rescue and recovery program. They are just a few of the wild horses that you'll be helping by becoming a HOPE Tees for Horses member or simply by purchasing some of these artful limited edition shirts.  Funds raised will work instantly to help refugee horses including pregnant and nursing mares, young foals, orphan foals and many other equines in critical need.

From cruelty victims, to serious trauma, starvation, or other physical or emotional, or painful debilitating conditions, HOPE Tees for Horses Members help assure that these vulnerable victimized animals receive the quality care they need and that they will never be at risk of mistreatment, roundup or slaughter again!

Funds raised directly aid horses served through Wild For Life Foundation's lifesaving mission.
