The Ancestors Are Singing
Gemma Benton Jackson
Painting - Acrylic/mixed Media
In an Native way, songs are passed from one generation to another. They are a way of transmitting spiritual understanding from one person to another. In the old days, the ancestors were said to have created the world through their ceremonial songs and dances. Today those same songs and dances are used to bring balance, healing and wisdom into our lives and into the world. When a singer is said "to get it just right" they are not just singing but praying the way the old people did, as if the world were made of nothing but sound and light.
