Whether you have four legs or two, you have a place in the circle of creation. One of our favorite two-leggeds – the late Judy Trejo – introduces us to a few relatives, including singing bears, giggling jackrabbits and laughing bobcats.

My mother, when I was a child, my mother used to give me tobacco or sometimes a pot of coffee and some empty cups. Or sometimes she would give me a sack of biscuits and say, “go down there by the river. The old men are there. They are probably playing dominos or cards or checkers. Bring your gift to them. Sit and listen. They will talk.”

Nico Wind:
Helmina Makes Him First, a respected Lakota Sioux elder, will always remember the honor ceremony given for her by a friend at a gathering. It took place in Portland, Oregon not long ago. After reflections were shared about Helmina’s role in her community, she was lovingly wrapped with the gift of a Pendleton blanket. The people present stood respectfully around the circle they had formed as Helmina danced within it, the powerful sounds of the drum group and singers guiding her steps.

Arlie Neskahi:
During the production of this program, our elder, Judy Trejo, passed into the spirit world at the age of 62. We were saddened and shocked, but we’re grateful that we were able to record much of her wisdom, humor, and singing spirit.
