Sacred Teachings

Scene Description:
From the moment Sacajawea’s story begins, an eagle leads…  He watches her, alone in a small tipi at the edge of the mountains. He follows her path when she is stolen away and made a slave. He is there when she finds a way home to her people. He guides her to them and gives her strength through great heartache when she cannot stay. He waits for her to come to him, and brings her to another soul — a soul who needs her love. And, when she finally reaches the Great Water and her destiny is revealed, the eagle rests, watching from a tall evergreen tree… carrying her prayers of Love on its wings.

Final Thoughts:
In the screenplay, SACAJAWEA, The Windcatcher, we see powerful metaphors and deeper meanings that give us something to see, “if” we will see. Life does not appear to give us “light” all the time, yet light is never gone. As a very young child, Sacajawea did not know the eagle traveled with her, nor did she understand his teachings. But, as she grew into a young woman, on her moon time journey, she prayed for Creator to guide her way… not knowing the harrowing path that was ahead. But, the teachings from her people kept her grounded and focused. She believed and trusted in her guide, her teacher, that led her to Love. Love for all and love for self – a balancing of the human being and the human soul. ~ Spirit Wind
