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.”

“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.”
