|“The dances are prayers.”|
|–Pop Chalee, TAOS PUEBLO|
|When we dance to the drum we pray to the Creator and attract the heartbeat of the earth. We never dance without reason; every dance has a purpose. We dance for rain; we dance for healing; we dance for seasons; we dance for joy; we dance for our children; we dance for the people; we dance for courage. The drum plays to the beat of the heart, to the beat of the Earth. The drum connects us to the Earth while we dance our prayers.|
Oh, Great One, let my dance and prayer be heard by You.
