"Yellow Bird the Seer" 24" x 24" giclée print on canvas. Limited edition of 95 signed and numbered.
"It is said that he came to the people in the season of the tall grasses, his voice could be heard across the prairie when he sang, even the birds listened. He was given the name "Yellow Bird" from the yellow song birds that stayed along the waters edge and filled the air with joyful song. Yellow Bird stayed mostly to himself and didn't speak unless spoken to first. Most of the people were cautious around him and warned the children not to approach him, but his songs lured them to get closer to the beauty of his voice.
One day a little girl ask Yellow Bird why he spent his days singing songs and "Why don't you just talk like everyone else?" Yellow Bird responded with song "When I was a child the words I spoke were so soft. I yelled them as loud as I could but the people were so noisy my words were lost. I was so lonely one day I started to sing my words to myself and to my amazement everyone started listening. I discovered that sometimes the most important words are not the loudest being spoke!" The little girl went to all the children and sang them the words of Yellow Bird. From that day forward the children sang their words softly instead of yelling and screaming and the people of the tribe listened. -Cha' Tullis
