If you'd like to explore Native American culture or rediscover your own Native American blood, this is a great week.

A Journey in Dance, Drums & Song
Starring: Kevin Costner, Robert Mirabel, Hawk Pope
This is an amazing combination of ancient native lore and new age rock. Robert Mirabal from Taos Pueblo is fantastic and a powerful role model for not just natives but anyone interested in meaningful story telling and music. If all grade school kids were required to see this video - there would be little racism towards native Americans and more admiration and understanding. What a beautiful culture - and how wonderful that it is shared with all of us in this video.
