Tribute to Indigenous Children Worldwide


The lyrics: Took the Children Away My Comments:

Spiritual people should not think that their spirituality is superior to others but should humble themselves and esteem others as better than themselves. The position of Native Americans towards other spiritual ways is, NOT to judge other peoples visions. The Great Spirit speaks in many ways.

Sadly religious zealots during the colonial period (17th to 19th centuries) thought it was their manifest destiny to rule the world by force in their name of their god. The advancing tide of Church and State; in addition to stealing the homelands of indigenous people through trickery and murder, took the children away from their parents in order to indoctrinate them and impose European culture on them. This song from the Australian experience is about this crime, which by the way took place in America and many other places! May we learn to do things differently!

Profile Information

About:
About the Artist: I am a Native Californian presently living in the Central Valley. I Have been creating Art since 1967. I specialize in metal sculptures that are figurative and abstract (sold locally).

Artist Statement: My joy of creating art involves a playfulness whereby I approach my task like a child with a new toy. Many artists lose their creative edge by becoming too serious, too professional and too adult. I create art in the moment and have no preconceived master plan other than to have a good time. Each piece therefore is original and unique, a mere expression of my play time!

Consequently the Best compliment you can give my Art is " It looks like something my 5 year old made in 5 minutes!"

Other:
Freedom loving Artist and spiritual director informed by Judaism, the way of Christ, Creation Spirituality, Zen and Indigenous spiritualities.
