In the Native American way we live in a wheel that has four main quarters that represent the 4 directions of the sky. Each of the 4 Directions is symbolized by a season, a color, a certain stage in the life of the human being, as well as with special opportunities and strengths. The 4 directions are our orientation in life, where we are and where we are going – in a litteral and in a transpersonal sense. These different energies in Native Ways are referred to as ‘The four winds ‘ or the ‘4 Grandfathers and Mothers’.
In this dance celebration, we will create sacred space by burning sage, learn the Clear Water song, dance traditional Powwow dances to Native American music and and offer our own prayers. No prior experience necessary.
Alewa Eva is walking the Good Red Road for over 30 years, when she first was introduced to a traditional Native American Sweatlodge-Lakota style. This was like a homecoming for her and it brought her numerous times to South Dakota learning about Native Ways wtih her Elder Ellsworth Chytka and others. The sweatlodge also brought her ultimetly to Hawaii. She just returned from Sundance from Rosebud Reservation in South Dakota. Her Native Name is Kimimila Zhi Wancipi- Yellow Dancing Butterfly.
