A New Heartbeat - Lithograph
A new heartbeat is truly a miracle. There have been many thoughts and inspirations that have come as a result of being privileged to be part of another precious life coming into this world.
A child is born as a ray of pure light from the creator of all things.
Among our people there is a dance called Kaxala, which means uplifting or holding them up, this is done by the Chiefs as they hold the new born children. This is a dance to honour the little ones as a public commitment to the children.
It is our modeling of life that determines how a child will grow up. It is our journey on the road of life that gives direction to those who follow us.
The feet follow the red road, the road of love, light, strength, and truth.
The hands are the hands of healing that lift the little ones up.
The color green is for our Mother Earth, where our medicines come from.
Blue is for the water that is part of us all.
Yellow is the light that all children bring to this world.
A NEW HEARTBEAT is dedicated to Wakas Henry Tillman Vickers.
