Native American collage

Native American collage





Traditional tribals that followed Sioux religion,
Had spiritual beliefs
performed controversial dance ceremonies,
Waken- the great spirit
was one universal source,
Mother Earth birthed all
animals, plants and humans,
Black Elk sheltered all,
The sacred hoop said unity,
Circles symbolised oneness,

Invisible Great spirit was Sioux God,
Thunderbird powerful spirit of sky,
Underwater spirits that controlled all commons,

Humans wanted to communicate,
Shamanic practices 
to interpret dreams and trances,
Performed rituals for vision,
With visions and dreams
they could talk to spirits,

Native Americans 
far more believed in,
Death and rebirth,
Curiosity on afterlife
a human's breath,

Native American collage,
Is all that's holy and mysterious !!

Interesting to note that American govt. Banned their practises in 1800, still we are trying to solve this puzzle of life and afterlife- through now called science.
