It is dark and cold
The lodge covered with snow
The five moons of winter
Upon us
The windigo may be about
Looking for prey
The drumming starts
The heart beat
Of the earth
The storyteller takes his place
In the centre of the room
To bring us the teachings
Of our glorious past
Of the medicine wheel
Gitchi Manitou
Sky woman
The flood
The circle of life
The four powers
We sit in wonder
Children fascinated
Elders with dignity
Thinking of the glory
Also of hope
And what the future will bring
