Bring the new year with a bang. Let our hearts feel such a clang. Ring your bells, lift your voices high. Lift your heart and feel the sky. Children everywhere are looking for you. They ask, "Who are you and what do you do?" You tell them, "I'm on the road with you, on the hoops of life with a fantastic view".
Rainbow Warriors, prophecy in the sky, let your prayers fly high, oh sow high (rooted in heaven). Plant your love to sail in the wind. Give your heart, your tears to begin. Sail with me externally. Sail with me, make my heart glee! Feel the time slide right out of your hands. Let's make a stand, put LOVE on the land.
Embrace each other every day. Embrace each other I do pray. Embrace each other it's the only way. Heaven is coming (to reign/rain/tears/river and rule). Race men the right way (purify your life). Heaven is coming, turn your heart around and say, "Is that what you said, I heard every word." Embrace your Brother this way and Sisters they will continue to pray.
Come my family let's embrace each one! Come my family. We are all under the same Sun and it's time to realize the power of loving chides. It's equipment you know (believe), wisdom (heart knowledge) and all the light show (tools of light in rainbow colors, four colors found in all things).
Feel the company you keep. Do they have their hearts complete? Do they know, all the glow of heaven's wrath/worth, hear/here at last. We are going to feel everyone. No more hiding from the Sun (our inner glow). There your heart will be known. It's Evolution and we grow. Heaven inside will be bright and the lower and the right will be (a) humble rainbow in the sun, healing all on the run.
Race of Men, shine to thee. Feel Heaven upon your knees. Give and be faithful. You just learned how to fight (destruction/war/renegades, second phase of evolution). Now it's time to eliminate plight. We (true blue warriors) destroy impure in the wind (with fire blessings, pure love), we bring our Relatives up again. Our Warriors down STAND UP. They learn to be proud and drink from God's Cup. We must only live "a One clan", the rainbow humanity under one sun. And it's time to bring law of love (red road).
It's time to give. Share with your Brothers. Share with the clan. Share your heart and make a stand. Feel your neighbor hold destiny in your arms. Guide the children, who ask you who you are. You are Rainbow Warriors of Prophecy. You walk HOOPS ETERNALLY. We cross roads together and make dreams together to find heaven is in your arms. Now just turn on your charm. Feel joy. The vehicle in the wind (joy, yellow, golden, happiness, treasures vs. lessons). Let loose and begin to cleanse all sin. Light your fire, clean the mire (fire blessings cleanse the spirit world) and walk with me on water and leaves (faith to bless and cleanse the physical world, water flows a new and leaves on the tree of life). We are true blue from heaven, me and you, "One family view".
Gather together and walk (red road) the hoops. Gather together and talk (blue road) the news. Share your stories, hold your memories, because time lives in the wind. Tell the world, "We are going home". Tell the Moon, "Thank you for the Sun" (inner light, tides of to and fro, reflection and time, heavenly blue road). Tell the Wind, "We love you sow. I plant my seed and watch it grow."
Hoops Eternally (nine sacred directions), Magical as a Tree (family tree of life, the rainbow clan), I will come to bee (impossible dreams come true) a warrior true (heavenly view), to bring relatives home for you.

C&I: Where did hoop dancing originate?
Nakotah LaRance: It is believed to have originated in the Southwest, Taos Pueblo, and was a healing ceremony. It spread throughout Indian country and Canada, including the Plains Indians.
C&I: What is the tribal or cultural meaning of hoop dancing?
Nakotah LaRance: It’s the beauty of the world, about balance, about Mother Earth. Without Mother Earth and the creatures, there would be no balance. I think of that every time I dance. It’s all about Mother Earth and keeping that balance between us, the creatures, and her.
White Buffalo Calf Woman Note: Nakota(h) means the embrace of the heavens. Of course this young man would become one with the Hoops. Just like Grandmother Space (gray persons, we call Grandmother, like Grandmother Comfort in the Wind and many others), it's important to realize, the interrelationships of the hoops in the universe we all belong to. The hoops represent the journey and pathways of our spiritual flight. There are nine sacred directions which cross over and cooperate, called relative space. Therefore we are all relatives on the hoops of life. We all come from heaven to live upon earth, to become the seed and center of new life. We walk (red road) and talk (blue road) together about our dreams (yellow road). And when we return home from the stars (white road), we unite with the Rainbow Clan. Aho, may your spirit fly. To read further about the four roads, please visit whitebuffalocalfwoman.net. Thank you.
Pray With Elders around the WorldA light from within, is the sacred dance of the eternal wind. It brings judgment, to the valleys, where the shadows learn to sing. Human blessings, will ensure that we take care of everything under the sun. And those who follow the heavenly kingdom, we shall walk into fertile grounds. Over rolling hills we do flow, where the sunshine will be within our hearts, and even if weare blind,we will follow with faith and wisdom, the soul that knows and I will oblige, to be the heart that survives. Inside of my heart lives a fellow, that is greatness, beyond compare. And we are going to be the person, that light that beckons forth. And in this world, where heaven follies, we are going to be know as law. heaven's greatness, knows the shadows, where all is blessed instead of cursed. And if we look into vision, where our eyes follow our hearts. We look at ourselves, full of wisdom in the reflection of the waters blue. And there we shall find a true heart of laughter as we realize how childish we are. And it's a child that's full of wonder. I forgive and learn, to bow down. I say, I am greatness, I am walking over bright lights and I shine like a sun. Even in the sacred valleys, where darkness finds my eyes. I will blind, like a beam, that cast out ingnorance each day. I will share my light with the shadows and welcome them home to run along with me. We shall know that heaven is welcome. And we shall bind all to come as one. We are a light from within us, the place heaven begins within. The soul in the wind. And I shall shine from inside, to beam lights out towards the world. I will be the torrent breezes, that say, I am the Sun Dance today.
