Voices of the Elders

Few things that have brought tears to my eyes in this world. One is hearing our women sing around the drum at sundance. Their voice is powerful and humble at the same time. It takes the spirit from your body and hugs it with warmth, nurturing, and strength. No doubt their voice is guided by the spirits of unci past to bring courage to our people of today. I love all the women in my circle when they cry out to tunkasila that they are suffering it hurts down deep. Makes me cry. Makes me want to be strong and fight that which hurts my people. Songs are prayers! Songs are strength! Sing as loud as you can I feel you!
