The path we follow and choose is ours. Being native is in us all... Some are born with the blood of our ancestors and others are born with the spirit... Accept people as people and not as gender, color, race or religion. We must recognize and remember Diversity as a great achievement, and these achievements are not born from a single vision but from the combination of many distinctive viewpoints. Diversity challenges assumptions, and opens the minds and unlocks our true potential to solve any problem we may face together as people of the human race. Together we face a larger problem of segregation and dividedness; we as humans must not stand idle for we must change the way of life we live. We and we alone have to challenge to change our fate as humans. We must pull together and recognize we need to work together as brothers and sisters to survive...
Emerging into the sound of my drum, the beat of the rhythm send shivers through me and the bond between drummer and drum are complete as the energy and spirit within are bonded. When you hear the roar of the pounding drums, feel the echoes run through your bones as the drums are beating, feel the vibration in your soul and as you listen feel your heartbeat. This is the part I love most, you may be in a storm, but don’t let that storm get in you. Instead, set your focus on the wind and hear the message that your drum sings and the message it carries. Because the Creator and the Great Spirits is faithful, and He will fight your battles; so stay calm and remain with peace today because He is going to deliver you and lead you. There’s a surprisingly ridged low sound that is very deep in my drum as it echoes and blends with my voice and my soul. And as I hear the sound of the drums of my ancestors within my drum, I also send them new energy echoing deep within the vibrations and I wonder how long this road will provide for me as it did for them and will my journey be anything like the travels of the past. Will it be the gift of new energy and spirit with each beat of the drum as I need to thank those whose ashes settle on the earth and as I now walk softly. Will the Creator heal the hand of my brothers and sister as I play loud for them from the pain and suffering they endure? For all He has bestowed on me, as a gift; and as I play and is there really a gift; is there any healing in the echo in the wind when the sound roars to heal the hearts of my family and friend. Indeed so there is and today I leave each of you my gift, as I will dance a little slower and sing a little louder and may each song of the thump bump bump sing differently as they cry in the winds and carry within the soft winds my sound of my drum as it beats like the pulse of my heartbeat and may the rhythm run ramped in the veins for wish to heal others is the strength traveling in me and through me, as I now pass it onto you as a gift. With each stomp of my feet and strum of my drum may there be a sign of encouragements and strength to survive and to inspire you with passion for peace, respect and love for all my brothers and sisters. For we are the true warrior’s if you believe; hear my drum beat as it echoes for you. For the sounds you hear have completed the circle of my heart beat in the rhythm of my drum…
