When we stand before an audience, presenting lessons on Native American history, culture, and spirituality, we acknowledge their power. As we dream the dreams that become the lines, that weave our stories together; we feel their power.
It is through the potency of our written words that we met, found love, and collaborate our creative skills. Together, we continue on our path, always striving to educate, enlighten, and engage others, whom we meet on this journey. Drawing strength from the wisdom of our ancestors, and from traditional Native American voices of the past and present, we wish to share philosophical knowledge with those who are compelled to live more harmoniously with our environment, those who love the Earth and recognize her as “Mother,” and those who feel the connective strands between themselves and the universe.
“Spirit Drumming, a meaningful and powerful guide, is about much more than drumming. It invites the reader to understand and honor their connectedness with Mother Earth, all Her creatures, and the sacred use of the Drum.”
