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."
