The Waters Speak
Native American cultural traditions believed in a spiritual/physical relationship to nature, having a connection to the earth and it’s complexity of life. They showed an appreciation for nature’s beauty and gave respect for the land, believing a Great Spirit pervaded everything. The soil, sun, moon, water… all elements of nature had this sacred power. This painting shows a Crow Indian pausing beside the rushing waters, contemplating over this river of life. The sounds and swirling colors filled with a spirit, captivate his attention as he listens for his ancestor’s wisdom.
