These are songs of honor and acknowledge those who inspire and lead us forward through the rough trails of life. quot;Dragonfly, Dragonflyquot; was a promise to a dragonfly. quot;Red Dreamsquot; is for my father. He was a good-looking Muscogee man and a discouraged dreamer. He loved the song of the redbird. quot;Beautiful Baby...quot; is a song for the babies who come after us-they are brave to join us here. quot;The Trail of Tearsquot; has been carried through seven generations since removal from our tribal homelands in the Southeast. It is a song carried like fire in the rain. The quot;Mankiller Honor Songquot; is for Wilma Mankiller, Cherokee. She was a rare leader of vast insight, and a friend. quot;All the Colors of Sunrisequot;, quot;Shimmeringquot; and quot;To Chase Away Bad Thoughtsquot; are all healing songs. A crow followed me to the studio the first session, and returned for the very last, hence, quot;Urban Crow Dancequot;. Keep dancing, Crow! And finally, the whole story of quot;Rainbow Gratitudequot; is as large as the sky. The rainbow has spoken to me and showed me a trail beyond tears. Thank you for your love and support, all of you.
