Elder’s Meditation of the Day

“You must be prepared and know the reason why you dance.”
–Thomas Yellowtail, CROW

Inside every human being is a need to dance. We dance to music. Have you even wondered why people are moved when they hear an Indian Drum? The drum is the heartbeat of the Mother Earth. Every Indian dance is for a purpose and a reason. Every Song is for a reason. The beat of the drum makes our bodies, minds and spirits join together in harmony. It allows us to connect to Mother Earth and to each other. The dance aligns our minds to think spiritual thoughts. Dancing to the drum is healthy.

Great Spirit, today, I dance to honor you.


Msit Nókmaq/All My Relations,
Our lifes begin as a dance when people joyously acknowledge a new birth. When we are in the womb we can hear the heart beat of our Nations and dance with joy inside of our Mother. Our existence is dependent on the heartbeat, It strengthens our ties to our connection in life. It shows direction when needed.
~ Arthur Medicine Eagle, MEGAMAW

Gitsch Manito-Creator, Wásóq-Spiritworld, My life is thankful for the drum beat of life. Allow me the dignity and honor to protect our ways so they are not completely lost. Thank you for giving me the Sacred Dance of life. Welálin/Thank You, Msit Nókmaq, Chi~Miigwetch, Mitauke Oyasin
