Wind


No group more than the Native American Indians understood the importance of “wind”, in relation to their daily lives. It propelled their canoes, carried scent of their animals in the midst of a hunt, notified tribe-members of an emeny’s presence. It brought forth clouds that provided rain, sent smoke signals to neighboring tribes, and provided force through wind instruments, thus resulting in beautiful melody.

I think I like the description as much as anything else. The soft tonal archival recording relays a tranquil and nostalgic envy upon these people. I wish they were here today, and I would join in ceremony. Peace Pipe?
