This Summer the Whole World is a Sun Dance

Stephen M. Sachs, June 15, 2020

New Mexico's Over Summer Solstice Sundance,

Zuya Taopi Wiwanyag Wacipi,

Was canceled

Because of COVID-19.

Depending on how the pandemic goes

This could be a summer without Sun Dances.

In reality

The whole world is a Sun Dance.

Sun Dances are about transformation,

Renewal and returning to harmony,

And the sacrifice necessary to make that happen.

The world is in transformation

With much sacrifice for change

That we wish was not necessary.

We need to be compassionate

And do what we can to reduce

And heal the suffering,

While we work for the old to die

With as little harm as possible,

And for a rebirth

Returning to the ancient values

As fits our current circumstance

To bring a higher level of living

In harmony with each other

And the Earth.
