Hopi Butterfly Dance Song

This elegantly designed bolo tie, handcrafted by Zhaawano Giizhik, has an abstract, stylized design that's inspired by the Hopituh Sinom , or Hopi People , from northeastern Arizona and their beautiful ceremonial songs. The title of the bolo tie, biidaanakwad, is a word from Anishinaabemowin (the Ojibwe language) meaning "Hither Flying Cloud," - literally: "A Cloud Approaches." Both title and design reflect the connection that Native Peoples know exists between the plant world and Grandfather Thunder.POLI TIWA TAWI (BUTTERFLY-DANCE SONG) "Now for corn-blooms we wrestle,Now for bean-blooms we wrestle.We are youths, amid the corn,Chasing each other in sport,Playing with butterfly-maidens.This way, this way!Thunder will move this way,We shall summon the thunder here,That the maiden-plantsUpward may help one another to grow."
