The Earth is Our Mother
« on: October 15, 2011, 01:32:49 PM »
this is a song that was sung to us by a lovely native american man, in my 5th grade class.  we participated by drumming along.  the song crosses my mind quite often and i finally thought to google/youtube search it today.  it's quite inspiring.  enjoy and be well:

THE EARTH IS OUR MOTHER - SYNGULARITY / PASCAL GREGORY and VELMA FRYE

That fifth grade experience made quite an impression.  Where'd you go to school?

I remember some of the video images.  The sixties, if you remember them you weren't there!

haha - no, i wasn't around in the 60's - seems like it was a particularly enlightening period of time... jack kerouac stories will have to suffice!

What a beautiful song!

I would like to share this Taino song by Behike (Spiritual leader) Miguel Sague.. I always liked this song of his

It is about Atabey (Mother Earth)-- Atabey is usually depicted heavy with child, as you can see in the images posted below, the circle within her belly is the Earth itself...

Blessings :)
