Turtle and Elephant World

The Native American Indians believe that the world
was created on the back of a giant elephant,
that steps the back of a giant turtle;
by supernatural beings.

Today, the descendants of England
have brought with them their architecture and culture
to the Turtle and Elephant World,
making the Turtle's and Elephant's load heavier.

Love tribute to a NATIVE AMERICAN MAN 
By Victoria Anderson-Throop

In Alaska

By gray sea

Walks a man

Who looks for me


Predator at ease

City burdens cast aside

Grace in every stride

Burnished face of natural pride

Eyes of love personified

As we meet beneath red oaks

Summer sun our golden cloaks

What delight sweet love can be

breathes ecstasy

Short Native American poem by Leon Stacey| Details |

Lone Feather

A circular path
Among the wood tells a tale
Of a lone feather

As plain as the day,
But new as another morn.
You were visited...

As the eyes of God
Flew about in search of you
To show Himself strong,

They lit in the road.
Transformed into day angels,
They fluttered away.

A feather was found
By a friend to let you know
His Spirit was there.

Dedicated to a Native American Friend

Free as the wind Ode to native American Indians

Oh how I wish
I could set free
the native American Indian
with pride and dignity
taking them back
across the great open plains
to their sacred home
in the lush green vallies
where buffalo are plentiful
and roam
so the Indians can live in peace
one with nature once more
where the eagles soar
setting them free as the wind
wild untameable as a magnificent stallion
running toward the setting sun.

T. C. Cannon Self Portrait

A man with a creative dream
On an arid afternoon
Admiring God's creation
Relaxing in the sunlight
With his cowboy hat
Giving him a little shade
Watching the cumulus clouds
Shading the desert wasteland
Captured all by the artistic eyes
Of a man named T. C. Cannon Inspired by Abe's Native American Ekphrasis

Feathered Dream Catcher's

Within a catcher, dreams do scream
feathers redeem 
man's sullied soul
sweet dreams the goal

Within their vanes they transfix
each demon lick
each channeling's

Within the web they flutter, curs
nightmare mutters
beaded offerings
each feather sings

*It is believed that the origin of the Native American dream catcher (or Indian dream catchers) is from the Ojibwa Chippewa tribe.

In the quiet of the day I hear a roaring on the winds It's like the wild horses Aired notes being pinned An Aerofoil, with slats of wood Aerodynamics in tune, Whistling Below the moon My brothers down under In vibrato sound This Bullroarer of the past On their tribal lands This amazing piece From many a ground The Ukraine, Scotland Native American sounds

Buffalo Nickel

In change wherever you go,
on a nickel, you will find Monticello.
It was not that way years ago.
The reverse depicted a buffalo.
Thomas Jefferson also is shown to date.
He has been there since 1938.
A Native American chief was once there.
He could be found on nickels everywhere.
He made his debut in 1913.
Today, these coins are hardly ever seen.
A woman once said something to me that was funny.
“Don’t give it to me.  I only want American money.”

Morning Star--Vignette on music

Spirits float and glide
on the notes of the Native flute
echoing off the canyon walls
resounding through the pine scented forests
cascading over crystal falls
dulcet tones soft as a lovers caress
the melodic winds drift and sigh
as rivers flow through pristine mountains
coaxing the morning star over the horizon.

Vignette on the theme of a piece of music
inspired by: Song for the Morning Star
By: R. Carlos Nakai - Native American Flute Music
from the: Canyon Trilogy CD
