: I watched all four movies in a row, the three mentioned here plus Broken Chain, lots of stuff to discuss.
: Ayesha, I agree with much of what you say, but there is something, how shall I say, it leaves me with a funny feeling. You say: "Native American people are naturally "mystically" oriented." Hmmmmmm..... I'm not sure how to phrase it right now, will have to think about it... I'm not even sure if I should say I disagree with that statement, I just know I have a problem with that sentence.
: Will be back later, how could I resist this thread...
: Got to go watch "Voyager" now..:-)
I will try to put it differently. Most of the Native people that I have hung out with, who have been raised in the spiritual ways of their tribe or their people, seem to have a natural connectedness with the spirit. Of course, at the place where I have been going to, the people live very close to the ancient ways. Maybe it is in their connection to their ancestors or the power of their ancestors through them. It is hard to say. As a matter of fact, it is so hard to put into words. I probably cannot do it justice by even putting it into words. There is a Lakota saying; "Stronger than words is the GREAT SILENCE".
