Time - The Timeless Cycles of Life
It was once again
time to gather for our Soaring Eagle Workshop in the Park. This is a timeless
event because Tribal people have been gathering in this location perhaps
since creation. As the day cooled just a bit and the breeze began to lift
up from the growing shadows of the canyon we began to gather again. Indian
time gave our first time families a chance to receive a little intro into
the basics of the women's dance style from Chuck. Each time he shares
this with new dancers he draws on a lifetime of experience and the wisdom
of the Elders who have guided him. A timeless cycle that passes on these
traditions to those who will pass it on again, part of Indian Time. At
other gatherings our esteemed Elder, Randy, has shared that there may
be a schedule printed on the flier but we also go by Indian Time which
says things will happen at their own pace, when they're ready.
dancers in every category to practice their moves. The sticks, shawls,
fans and bells help the dancers and are all traditional accessories to
the regalia. We always appreciate the support for our dancers from mentors
and the Singers.
Sometimes in the dance circle the dancers who appear the older, most experienced are the newest dancers and the youngest dancers can already share what they've learned. A great time seemed to be had by all.
As the shadows lengthened we still had great songs and enthusiasm from our dancers and singers. We celebrated a birthday with cupcakes all around, then finished up with a Round Dance. We meet once more in the Park on Aug 22.
