Coo eeah coo quk all

Let's gather; Let's discuss;

Let's celebrate our friendship;

Let's dance for our dreams

Share stories for eons

See great-grandfather young

dancing like the wind

weaving with grace through the

pattern of dancers as the drum

beats a heartbeat to live by;


Grandfather follows and frees his son

to step in sync with the beat and I,

I now hear my bells ringle a low, soft

jingle as I prance in place swirling down

to this round of the song of the drum

and listen for the beat to flow forward,

a dancer, an athlete, an artist, a composer,

a storyteller, a joker, a peacemaker;

all gifts given from the pow wows of elders

down through time for today and tomorrow;

Coo eeah coo quk all.

The feather was created and discarded by a former student; it still hangs on my bulletin board as a reminder of the gifts my students possess passed on through traditions and shared talents.
