I love this, love this, love this! Love the shield. Love the Four Directions. I worked for eight and a half wonderful years among the First Nations people of the west coast. Beautiful people, beautiful culture. I resonate with your culture very much. Some of my older poems reflect this. River, this is a beautiful poem. Thanks so much.

p.s. River, I love the look of your site, the images, the wolves, the photos.......the quotes. Quite wonderful.

River said...

Sherry, thank you! I will have to go back in your archive. :) I have a series on here about powwows mostly done by story. You might like them.

Thank you Jingle. I do love gently pushing people to think about things? Step out of their box for a few minutes.

you said a lot in very few words.
four is certainly an important number.

Truly a very thought provoking poem. Excellent post.

Yes I agree River about the same and now thinking over it deeply. Would love to give it more thought... when I am at some spiritual place... what is Traditional Anishinaabe? If you have time, give me your perspective though i know I can Google it, but knowing some one's perspective is more alive..... thanks

Thank you everyone...

Anishinaabe or Ojibwe is a Native American Nation. Being traditional Anishinaabe means spiritually I follow the traditional ways with contemporary mixed in with it. Feel free to ask questions. :)

Shashi said...

thanks River... I have many questions on this but will take some time to ask...
Look forward to more interaction with you...
