My gourd art/Sun Doll

The blood of the first people
lives on in me.This is my sunbird doll.
It is made from rooster
feathers and a gourd.
In the American Indian tradition
Sun Bird was the name of
an indian maiden.
An indian warrior
wrote this song about her:
Oh, pretty Sun Bird,
— just whisper one word—
To guide me on my way
day by day 'neath the prairie sky;
And when I'm dreaming—
'mid camp fires gleaming—
My love star shines for you,
all for you, my sun Bird.
