I dance to feed that which is wild and therefore holy in life. If done well my dance becomes food for the beings that keep the world alive. I dance to measure the distance between a human being and the wild or unknown in nature. I dance to honor the forgotten Agreement. I dance to bless the knees, elbows and belly buttons of my ancestors.  I dance as a way to court matter and re-plant the ground between myself and the world with living grasses upon which the things of the world can dance, not as slaves to an imperial goal but as the free and wild song beings that they are. I dance so that my body is not a slave. I dance for our food. I dance to subvert the conventional consumer ideology. I dance for a time beyond my own. I dance for the Earth.
