Bunny's songs speak in beauty of natural and life nurturing spaces and the importance of living ways of cultivating peace and harmony among all our relations.  Mitakuye Oyasin  (Lakota-we are all related).

"Who we are might be predetermined,  but the path we follow is always of our own choosing.
We should never let our fears or the expectations of others to set the frontiers of our destiny. 
Your destiny can't be changed, but it can be challenged.
Every Man is born of many men, and dies as a single one."  author unknown but worth quoting...

The Wolf People -   by Joseph Marshall III

 

Uploaded by on Apr 11, 2010

We -- the wolf and the first peoples -- have within us a key to the future of this country and, indeed, the world. A truth instilled by adversity. A truth both ancient and new.
Milenniums ago we both roamed freely. We did not destroy the land or contaminate the water or foul the air. Our populations did not exceed the physical world's ability to support us. We each had a place in the natural order, the Great Circle of Life, and we kept our places. Nor did we unduly or self-righteously interfere with any other species.

The new, more recent truth comes from having stood on the brink of extinction. It is simple and frightening. The actions, attitudes, and policies by which Indians and wolves are "controlled" are the same that are applied to the land, air, water -- attitudes and policies that have deep roots in arrogance, ignorance, and apathy when they should be based on truth, understanding, and compassion.

For the sake of the world, we pray that non-Indians and non-wolves will see these truths. And if these truths are seen and accepted, then we will all know that there is a natural order still, no matter how much we may have allowed technology and anthropocentrism to hide it from us.

My heart is happy you have found this web site today to discover the music sent me from the sacred Black Hills where I live. It is my hope that you, may come to know of life-honoring indigenous ways through sites such as this, discovering "Native" perspectives, so needed for our times.

We are the caretakers of the earth.

I have read many posts on the web from those wishing to learn of their ancestry, and I know personally of this yearning. Yet, the Lakota prayer -
"Mitakuye Oyasin" (in Lakota meaning all my relations, or "we are all related"- we are all one) speaks to the knowledge and vision that regardless of the color of skin or traceable heritage, we ARE all relatives of each other, we are what is in our hearts, especially so, if we are courageous enough to honor it in the way we walk in a sacred manner upon our Mother Earth.

This time in human history many are looking for tribe, extended family, "Tiospaye", roots to cling to - for we can feel this great dis-harmony in our world now so torn by "left brain" teachings that have put in our heads, that have told us, we are somehow at "odds" with the natural, the sublime, the beautiful and harmonious, the creative, life-nurturing organic world, all living things in diversity, ourselves, and each other.

This view is quickly becoming old news as more people get back in touch with their "knowing" that life is a gift (not a punishment) and with the many "super" storms now manifesting across our globe - the lightening speaks - of the need to get back into harmony with the natural world.  Humans need to know, come to truly understand that what we do within our life-style, life-ways, and living circle - to the environment and to all living things - how we each
"touch" the earth (whether it be house pets, family members,
or how we "consume" and expend our personal "trash")
ALL these things effect the world around us and the larger whole.

Certainly it is time to learn to live functionally, effectively - IN love.

So, the teachings from the Lakota prophecies and dreams that have been preserved in ceremony and are now being spoken, sung forth, and sent for this time, are becoming clearer to those who still yearn to listen and learn, and LIVE!, those willing and desiring to understand the messages that renew life, take us out of the shadows of misinformation, self defeating ways, into the light of practice of love, of truth. 
May we all be comforted with the truth, the news that many are now learning to hear these messages so subtly yet clearly communicated from the natural world. It is my prayer that this may also be heard clearly in my music offerings, sent from a prayerful, grateful heart.

We ARE all related!

NOW It is time to walk in beauty, dignity, and honor with ourselves, our families, within our neighborhoods, and again make a commitment to live with respect and humility and in ways of peace with all our relations. All of the visions, dreams, prophecies for this time (in principal these agree, from many different cultures) to show a final good outcome for those who will take heed and walk in balance upon the good Red Road
in honor of LIFE instead of fear of death.

These messages have also come to me in many dream-sent songs that I sing at every opportunity to any who wish to hear them - sent to me from the heart of the Black Hills - perhaps to reach yet more hearts who still live in the darkness of fear, to yet find comfort and life honoring perspectives. These things are all for healing and balance.  All we need do is take heed, listen, learn, LIVE!

The circle is round, each of the colors of human races, and of the four directions is to be honored equally, and
everything we send comes back to us
- as above so below.
May we each choose to do what we can to walk in wisdom
so that ALL may be blessed.

Bunny's songs speak in beauty of natural and life nurturing spaces and the importance of living ways of cultivating peace and harmony among all our relations.  Mitakuye Oyasin  (Lakota-we are all related).

Why does Bunny play the "Native American" flute?

Just as a "French horn" is a particular type of musical instrument, "Native American flute" refers to a particular type/style of musical instrument.  Also the style of storytelling dubbed "Native American Storytelling" does not guarantee presentation by an enrolled member of a Federally-recognized tribal member

A reviewer with the Rapid City Journal  dubbed Bunny's music as "Lakota-inflective Folk" which  aptly describes the type and subject matter of  the original music that has come to her in dreams which she shares often with flute music (which also came in dreams along with the lyrics and music of her songs).  Her music comes to build bridges among races of all people, Red, Yellow,  White and Black, and educate, show honor and respect for human BE-ings, Lakota and ALL other earth-nurturing, Native American and/or indigenous or other life honoring ways, perspectives and cultures. 

For  more information on this subject please read "All the Real Indians Died Off" and 20 other Myths about Native Americans by Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz 2016
 

"I"m white, but I can't prove it."

Although Bunny has a rich mix of first nations ancestry, continues to learn from, shares with and associates with many well respected "Federally-recognized"  Native American Indian tribal elders, chiefs, and medicine people, and she has  researched the  stories and teachings that stem from cultural perspectives that she may share in workshops or performances,  please know that the music and the original songs she shares (and the stories and teachings that come with them) have come to her in dreams. 

While she plays Native American flutes in music that is enjoyed and endorsed by many prominent U.S. federally issued card carrying Native Americans,  Bunny Sings Wolf's music does NOT claim to be "Native American made"  as is now specified by the U.S. Government.  

Bunny IS a relative of and a traditional spiritual member of the Mato Watapke (John Grass, Charging Bear, Oglala Lakota Dakota Nakota, Standing Rock "Sioux") clan. 

IF it is your desire to listen only to music made by a "federally-recognized" IRA enrolled  "Native American" musician, you may find them through a web search.

Most asked question:    "How can I get a copy of Bunny's latest new songs that I  heard at her concerts?"

Most of Bunny's ORIGINAL SONGS (upward of 450 at last count) have "arrived" usually at 3:00 a.m., in the form of dreams  since Bunny has been living at home in the Black Hills.  Waking her from deep sleep - playing in her head - complete with words and music, she records them, to learn and share later. In honoring this unique music gift, Bunny feels a solemn responsibility to the Creator to use her voice and carry these songs to as many people as possible.  Lyrics of some of these songs, yet unreleased on CD, may be found on Unreleased Lyrics page.
