these pages again to the world community.
living in Seattle Washington, I have been very busy these last two
years working and doing music in the community. One of the highlights
was being commissioned to compose a song for the Office of the Mayor
of Seattle. It was a great honor and a wonderful project. Here is
a link to the video done by Seattle Channel TV about the song, it's
history and composition. It's called Mayor's
Honor Song and you need the real player to view it. I am very
proud to say the video has won a couple of awards and thanks to
Seattle Channel TV, producer Peggy Lycett, and Michelle Sanidad

to a major city position. I am so proud to represent for our Native
people in such a prestigious office.

Humphrey! We were both asked to record for an upcoming movie
on Showtime. We had a good time in the studio here in Seattle. Annie's
music and voice are stellar and it was so good to meet her and work
with the composer, BC Smith. Here are some pix from the studio.

finally on a side note, I am hosting a new radio program soon to
be heard on National Public Radio, called Wisdom
of the Elders. It is an exciting project and please tune in!
enough for now, see you on the Wowow Trail or at a performance,
following is from my last update and I received so many comments
about it, I will leave it posted here a while longer...
my father's funeral last January, in Cortez, Colorado, my sister
Cheryl, came to me and said she had something real important to
tell me. She said that in the week before my father's passing
he was experiencing many visits, visions and dreams. One thing
he kept saying, she thought I ought to know. He kept repeating...
is a Movement coming, real soon, it is coming... It is almost
here... It will be real good for Native People, all the world will
take notice. It is coming, watch for it...
father's prophecy is blooming across the Land... All over the continent
and the rest of the world our music is being experienced and shared.
It has taken five centuries of contact with people of other continents,
but the Time Has Come. We at Rainbow Walker are proud to be
a part of this Vision.
the way that it is going to happen is through Music."
again for your beautiful support and love of Native Music. You too,
can be a part of this Dream being Born...
border at left was the artwork of Roger Nez who let me scan, color
and edit it for the WWW. It has the four sacred colors of our people,
the Dine'. White for the Dawn, Blue for the Day, Yellow for the
Evening, and Black for the Night. The blue and red lines symbolize
the Rainbow, the Blue being the Male and the Red, Female. Within
them lies the yellow Pollen Trail, the Sa'ah Naghei Bik'e Hozhooni,
Trail of Old Age and Beauty. Along the Trail are the Sacred Mountains,
home to our sacred Holy People.
