When Ancestors Speak

When Ancestors Speak

The wind blows across the sea
Music left behind
One with water


Old Country twice

Two Seas

Go back and back

Blood still red

Grandmother country

We are here in you 

Mother country
We are here in you 
Land is one

This ancestor mask was a year long project filled with dance, drumming, poetry, sculpture and of course.....Shamanic Journey Work. It was inspired by the poem, which I wrote at the International Women's Drum Camp in 2017. An amazing Poet, Playwright, Multi-Percussionist, Photographer, and Teacher
 by the name of Avotcja taught a short but powerful class. This was one of the catalysts that sent me flying forward on a year long ancestral journey. Blessings to the many women who have touched me this past year and years to come.
