Cemetery Hill, Wounded Knee, 29 December 2006

After the sage is gone

After the tobacco has fallen

After the prayers have gone silent

After the singing has ceased

After the drums are still

After the rusting cars, mini-vans, trucks have rolled away

After the horses’ trailers have departed

After the alternator has been changed on the ancient blue and white pick-up

Then

Bowl sings

Instrument of a people without a country

But not without identity;

People making a new way-

Sings for a People with a land

Yet

Losing identity,

People fighting to heal their sacred hoop-

It sings rich and strong

To the North, South, East  and West

To the sky

To the earth

To the wind

To spirit within and without

Bowl sings as never before

Deep and full

Seeking all walking the winds

Bowl sings

Hopes

Spotted Elk’s Band dances
