One of our Northern Hoop Members, who is an inspiration to the young folks, Anthony Wayne is affiliated with the Pokagon Potawatomi Tribe also a singer on the Stubby Grass Drum. We are all proud of the way that he has grown and is learning the way and his respect of the circle. There are many who could learn a lot from this young man.

She Danced

Afternoon in the meadow of Wood Lake

The sun shines from behind the clouds

A cool wind blows across the land

The music begins with the sound of the drum

Voices of the singers heard about the earth

A sacred stillness surrounds the meadow land

She sat quietly reflecting

As those around her prepare to dance

The Cannon and Lakota singers call the dancers in

She expressed a desire to dance

A borrowed shaw was placed around her shoulders

Then for the first time she stepped into the arena

With a friend by her side she took her first steps

Slow and steady she started around the arena

She danced to the slow steady beat of the drum

With a smile on her face and head held high

She made her way around one time

Then slowly walked out of the arena

As the drums beat stopped.
