Definition: Pascua-Yacqui tribe member: Art...

                                                                     Native American Petroglyphs

I asked my friend Larry Ramirez, a member of the Pascua and Yacqui tribes about the Native American approach to  Art. 

"To understand the role of Art in our world, you have to understand that most of our language has no word for Art. It's Prayer. This is how we pray." Larry,  a retired professor and psychotherapist said, "The mindset of our people is this: your mind goes to a theda* space instead of a beta space. Often people know a spiritual leader by his Art, by his Vision, by his Storytelling."

*Note~ EEG (electroencephalography):a measurement of the electrical signals at the scalp, originating from ionic current flows in the neurons of the brain.

1) Beta (14-40Hz) – The Waking Consciousness And Reasoning Wave

2) Alpha (7.5-14Hz) – The Deep Relaxation Wave

3)Theta(4-7.5Hz) – The Light Meditation And Sleeping Wave
4) Delta (0.5-4Hz) – The Deep Sleep Wave

5) Gamma (above 40Hz) – The Insight Wave
