One Vibration

One Vision - One Vibration

 

Music plays an integral role in the life of Native Americans. It is used for ceremonial purposes, recreation, expression, and healing. There are many different instruments used when making Native American music, including drums, flutes, and other percussion instruments. Perhaps the most important element of their music is the voice.

Vocals are the backbone of the music made in Native American cultures. Unusual, irregular rhythms and a somewhat off-key style of singing is used. No harmony is ever incorporated, although sometimes many people sing at once, and other times the vocals are solo. The Native American vocals are passionate, used to invoke spirits, ask for rain or healing, or are used to heal the sick. In most cases, the men and women of the tribes sing separate songs, and have their own dances. The men typically dance around in a circle, while the women usually dance in place.

Many researchers feel that Native American music is some of the most complex ever performed. The tensing and releasing of the vocals combined with varying drum beats makes it a very intricate form of art. Another interesting item of note is that every region of the country where the Native Americans had settled produced greatly varying forms and sounds of music. With so many different tribes, the music produced is always unique to its specific group. Generally, Eskimo music has been touted as being the most simple of all of the Native American music styles, while the Hopi, Pueblo, and Zuni tribes of the Southwestern part of the country have been known to produce much more complex sounding music. The emotion invoked from Native American music has been a great influence in modern folk music. In addition, tribal music is still very popular among music fans, and Native American CDs sell fairly well, even in today’s modern climate.

When The Night Was Young

Keynote: Dolphin medicine represents the power of breath and sound. Dolphin medicine also represents the sacredness of all life and the abundance of the primordial sea. They are the gatekeepers to other realms and may teach us how to pass freely between this world and others. Dolphins carry this ability because they are mammals that live in the sea. They live in two worlds, the world of air and the world of water. Like Whales, Dolphins teach us how to remain open to living in more than one way and environment; this is especially helpful for those who feel they are living a dual lifestyle, for example the accountant who is also a practicing medium on the weekends!

Great ~ Buffalo Sister ~
We honor your courage & strength ...

We honor you, who came to us from the mighty Buffalo Nation, to roam the golden plains that our Ancestors also walked ...

And when the great hunger was fast upon the People, you offered up your own life so that we might live.

You taught us to live in harmony with our Earth Mother ...

Your gentle wisdom enlightened us to understand that when the time comes to drop the Robe of Physical Life, we must leave something good of ourselves behind to benefit the generations yet to come.

From you we learned to never take more from the land than we need . . . to give freely of ourselves, without fore-thought of what we might receive in return ...

As the Ancestors sing a song of praise to you noble sister, we give thanks to ~ Wakan Tanka ~ for allowing us to walk this Good Path with you.
