The Eagle and the Buffalo

“The dancers will have their gaze fixed on the eagle or on the buffalo, or on some spot on the tree. All the time they are dancing they will concentrate on that spot. Oftentimes, dancers will see the buffalo or the eagle just as if he were alive. If the dancer has concentrated on the buffalo and has been sincere in his prayers, then the buffalo will know. For those sincere dancers, the buffalo will be alive. It is the same for those dancers who watch the eagle. They see him alive up there. The bird or the buffalo may dance with the sacred songs and it will be a great comfort to the dancers.”

- Thomas Yellowtail
