Cherokee Morning Song

This song is so lovely

I just have to share it with you.

My grandmother (my dad’s mom), Winona, claimed Cherokee blood. I have no idea how true that is or not especially since the name Winona is Dakota in origin. I do know from the way one of my uncles looks it is possible there is Native American blood there. That being said I do have a great great grandmother from my mother’s side who was Rebecca Lightfoot. I’m assuming from her name she was married to someone of Native American blood if nothing else. I have to tell you all if there’s any Indian blood there it’s negligible. I sooo look like the anglo I mostly am, English/Irish.

Paul, the girls and I joined a Native American Flute Circle many years ago and for a time we were so into making our own flutes and learning the music. Unfortunately we got away from it but I still miss it. We named one of our cats Lakota after the tribe and I often refer to her as Lakota Sioux. She is definitely our warrior cat and is the oldest now at nine years old. She looks like a miniature black panther and is absolutely lethal in her beauty.

I still love Native American music and I have several cds. The music can be so soothing but some is visceral in its call to your guts and soul.

    I’ve seen and listened to some Native American musical groups the music speaks to our soul.

    Yeah, I don’t have near as much as I would like to have. It was nice to find the music there on youtube.
