1. The Circle of Life

In this season of holidays, this time of celebration, this call to reach inward and outward to be the best we can be, there is also a bittersweet song that is played in the hearts of those missing a loved one. So the celebration takes on a different tone.

Some years ago, when I was looking for a producer for my Blue Coyote album, I called upon an Englishman by the name of John Pearse. A brilliant guitarist and performer, as well as cook, inventor, writer and co-founder of Breezy Ridge Instruments/John Pearse Strings, I had known him for almost 20 years at that point, but we'd never "worked" together.

John was an important man in many circles. As a producer, he did sessions in London with Paul McCartney and Marianne Faithful. His books on guitar technique are distributed worldwide. His publishing company was partnered with EMI/Great Britain, the same one that owns the Beatles publishing.

His guitar strings are played by many famous people from James Taylor to Kathy Mattea to Doc Watson. His PBS shows, "Stringalong" and "Cooking with Wine" made John's face, personality and style a familiar and accessible living-room classroom. His performances were classic - expert guitar playing amid storyteller narratives, and a heart as big as any room he played in. His reputation in Europe (and especially Germany) made him a sought-after performer, but he spent many years, as well, in the States playing festivals and concerts, often accompanied by his understated and equally-talented partner, Mary Faith Rhoads. He was a consumate musician and generous teacher. He was a great producer too! We made a wonderful record together that garnered critical praise and award-winning songs.

Amid all the accomplishments and memories, though, I will mostly think of John as a friend. Because of all the things he left to me, that big, warm bear hug is what I remember most.

John Pearse

It is the beauty of the circle of Life - the emotional and spiritual essence that we are so priviledged to find and remember about one another. That's the beauty of it - it keeps coming back - in any season. We get to remember and feel close and let go again... until the next season comes.

Many blessings, many smiles, many memories to take you through this time.

We are all related—Mitakuye Oyasin

2. MORNINGSKY DRUM SONG-On the Airwaves!

During the month of November, MorningSky was added to radio playlists from Pennsylvania to Washington State! As well, Albert Raymond Cata of Sante Fe Public Radio KSFR interviewed Jackie for a full hour on his international radio broadcast, Native American Radio Live, which will be posted soon on JackieTice.com. Albert had this to say regarding MorningSky, "Jackie Tice's new album "MorningSky Drum Song"is sensational...The Native flute, guitar, percussion and voice all blend well making this album good listening."

Robin Carneen, who is well-known for her networking regarding Indian rights and issues, has an internet radio cast at www.blogtalkradio.com. Robin has interviewed Grammy-winners and NAMA artists and activists and said, "I can see Jackie so clearly as I listen and feel the warmth, emotion, insight & sincerity of every song... like going through pages of a spiritually-audible journal. 'Ceremony,' her flute debut, is a beautiful hint of gifts to come."

Jackie closing Heartbeat for Peace Event

1. HEARTBEAT FOR PEACE WITH INTERNATIONAL COUNCIL OF INDIGENOUS GRANDMOTHERS

The Heartbeat for Peace event in Washington DC, Oct. 10-13, was a call by women to step up and dance, sing, drum, speak, pray and nurture into reality a peaceful world for ourselves, our children and the generations to come.

For four days and nights, the Turtle Women Rising gathering of women occupied land on the south lawn near the Washington Monument. The Grandmother Drum, brought from California by Turtle Women Rising founder, Eli Painted Crow, was sounded continuously by women, young women, grandchildren and grandmothers over the entire time.

When eight of the Gramma Elders of the International Council of the Thirteen Indigenous Grandmothers arrived on Monday, to bless and close the event, over 200 people were present. Veterans of the Iraq and Vietnam wars were given special acknowledgment and gifts as they represent the growing number of Veterans for Peace, whose voice is being heard across the nation at this time. Founder, Eli Painted Crow, a Yaqui Indian and retired 22-year veteran of the US Army, received a vision to gather many drums together and pray for Peace in the capital city for four days and nights.

The Drum represents the Heartbeat of the Grandmother Earth and the connection from her to the Heartbeat inside of us. When we align ourselves to that Heartbeat, great healing can occur both inwardly and outwardly. That is its purpose and also the reason the drum is used as a healing tool in all Indigenous cultures. When we feel that Heartbeat, we slow down and remember to be healed and to be healing toward others.

Among the many artists and musicians present, I had the honor to perform my All Nations Peace Chant and also closed the event with my Native American Flute piece, Ceremony, from my new CD release, MorningSky Drum Song.

May we all remember the Heartbeat that connects us to each other and the Grandmother Earth.

We are all related—
Mitakuye Oyasin

2. MORNINGSKY DRUM SONG-NEW CD RELEASE!!

We are pleased to announce the CD release of Jackie's MorningSky Drum Song! This is the follow-up to her award-winning, Bill Miller-produced CD, Second Skin. Unlike her previous release though, MorningSky draws on a deeper, understated and translucent side of Tice. Gone are the electric guitars, drum sets and omnipresent fretless bass lines that saturated both 1998’s Blue Coyote and 2005’s Second Skin. This new album is bare to the bones.

With the feeling of a living room concert, Tice stands firmly on her own musicality. With the exception of the astute percussion accompaniment of Todd Schied, Tice presents adroit acoustic guitar work, straightforward soul-filled vocals and adds a new instrument to her assemblage, the Native American Flute. In fact, half of the songs in this collection are flute-based.

In the three years since her last release, which included Miller’s haunting flute work on the stunning Thunder Moon, Tice has reached in and found another voice for her melodic talent, a long-recognized strength of her songwriting. Tice’s Indigenous ancestry is front and center here, complete with vocables, hand drum and the use of several Native languages in three of the ten songs. Notably, Ecu Ama, which means “Mother Earth” in the Plains-based Hidatsa language, is featured in the upcoming full-length documentary, For The Next Seven Generations, featuring the International Council of Thirteen Indigenous Grandmothers. (Laughing Willow Productions)

If Second Skin represented Tice’s public acknowledgment of her Indian ancestry, MorningSky Drum Song signifies her metaphoric riding of this Red Horse (the Indigenous spiritual pathway) across the sky. This CD sits squarely in the center of the Native American music genre.

3. GIVING THANKS : AN INDIGENOUS PERSPECTIVE--                                    Saturday, November 29, 7:30 PM Religious Science Center for Practical Spirituality, Morristown, NJ —  CONCERT WITH NAVAJO MUSICIAN, TONY REDHOUSE

This concert features the traditional and contemporary music and voices of Tony Redhouse, Navajo traditional consultant, multi-cultural percussionist and flutist, and Jacqline Wolf Tice, Cherokee award-winning singer/songwriter, guitarist and Peaceworker. The artists' distinct talents combine and weave together a dynamic program teeming with light-hearted humor, deeply spiritual insights, creative interactive interludes and inspirational energy and music.

The essence of the Native way of life relies on our connection to the Earth itself. Each artist will communicate their unique interpretation of that connection and the important role of gratitude in contemporary life.  View Tony's website

6. SCHEDULE

1. TO CREATE PEACE

September is a marker month each year. It’s the beginning of the school year here in the US. It marks the end of the Summer season and the beginning of Autumn and that crazy football season! It’s the month that the 9/11 tragedy took place in New York City. It also marks one day in the year when the Peace Bell at the UN (a gift from the people of Japan to the UN in 1954) is rung at noon, followed by a minute of silence, on the 21st of this month. This event celebrates the International Day of Peace – a day of global ceasefire. Some say it is merely symbolic at this point, but not entirely.

Around the world, people gather for events to establish their intention to create, encourage and legitimize Peace in a world that seems at times to completely undermine the possibility. I have been taught to stand up for my beliefs, to believe the best about humanity, to treat humanity with respect, to respect the efforts of those who try. If we do not try to create Peace, we will never be able to create Peace. The inscription in Japanese on the side of the Peace Bell reads, "Long live absolute world peace." On September 21, 2008, I will remember the global call to Peace. On that day, I will definitely try, as I go about my day, to create Peace everywhere, and in every way, I can. In fact, everyday, I will try. I will always try.

6. SPECIAL EVENT

7. SCHEDULE

1. THE SUNDANCE ROAD

This month we entered the official beginning of Summer. This also marks the beginning of Sundance season! I will be going to a new Sundance near Ithaca, NY in July and then out to Spirit Lake ND as usual in August. The Sundance ceremony is a prayer for the People to continue to live in a good way. It is a way to honor the traditions and the way of life of the Native spirituality. Also, the prayers are for all people to come together in the spirit of Mitakuye Oyasin. (We are all related)

The Sundance ceremony is sacred and distinct, but we must also remember that each day, and each moment, is sacred and distinct. We have the ability to make a choice how we are going to respond to a situation, a person or a feeling. If we are walking with the true meaning of the Sundance, we will make, to our best ability, the choice of honor, integrity, gratitude, acceptance and forgiveness.

If we fail (because we are human beings), we start over with sincerity and, again, make our vow to be committed to this way of being - this Sundance Road.

To all the Sundancers out there, to all their supporters and the Medicine People following visions, I say Aho and dance strong!

We are all related—Mitakuye Oyasin

2. MUSIKFEST 2008

4. FABRIC FEST

If you are looking for Native American fabrics, please check out: nativeamericanfabrics.com! This site, managed by a dear friend, is the best site to get the best material for making everything you need from quilts to dresses to pillow covers! The patterns and prices are absolutely fantastic.

5. SOUTH SENECA RULES!

The students at South Seneca Middle School in Ovid NY really went all out this year to make Jackie, Rich Stein and Spencer Reed feel like superstars at their week-long Human Rights Symposium! The programming, class participation and food was first class! Rich's student group, "In-School Suspension of Disbelief," captivated the audience on the Evening of Fine Arts with stellar improvisation and Spencer's electric guitar work (and stories!) kept them inspired. Gertrude Stein and Breana Copp again provided a World view for the students and a way of teaching through hands-on, right action and arts-based curriculum. The Jackie Tice Ensemble is honored to be part of such high-quality education!

3. SCHEDULE

1. MAY NOTE FROM JACKIE

In the last week of April, I attended the United Nations Forum on Indigenous People, which works with the rights and needs of Indigenous nations around the world. I was honored to spend the day with Grandmother Mona Pollaca (Havasupai/Hopi/Tewa) one of the 13 Indigenous Grandmothers gathering and praying for Peace and for our Mother Earth; Arvol Looking Horse, 19th generation keeper of the Sacred Buffalo Calf Pipe of the Lakota Nation; and Tony Pasquariello (Mohawk), one of the contributing founders of the One Nation Soveriegnty Declaration recently signed in Northern Quebec by the Algonquin and Cree Nations. One of the most beautiful things about being around all the various peoples of the Earth is finding there is so much commonality within people's hearts. It's so inspiring to know that we each have our own unique story, yet we are also very closely identified with the same vision of a World of compassion, equality, dignity and respect. I wrote a new song called One Nation, which I debuted for a small audience at the UN. We had a prayer circle at the Peace Garden with people from Poland, India, the US and Native America. I must mention the wonderful work of Betsy Stang and Monica Willard, two incredible women that are helping to bring good things to and through our world. It was a beautiful day and I will hold it as special for a long while.

3. MANY THANKS

4. SPECIAL EVENT

5. SCHEDULE

1. FINDING NATURE IN HUMAN NATURE

The beauty of our relationship with Mother Earth is that she is a reflection of own best and worst selves. We are inherently linked with her— physically, emotionally, spiritually. We see our own unsteady emotions in unpredictable weather patterns. As well, the breadth of our ability to love is witnessed in astonishing sunrises and endless mountain ranges. When we can stay close to Nature, to Mother Earth, we have access to a way of checking our personal balance. Every Eagle we observe can give us a sense of clarity; each Thunderstorm can provide inspiration to resolve a conflict; a Fire can feed our perseverance. When we say, “We Are All Related,” we mean with each other and also with Mother Earth.

We are all related—Mitakuye Oyasin

1. 2008 GREETING FROM JACKIE
My Friends,
I am so happy to be writing you from this side of the New Year. The warming of the Earth Mother is just a few short-seeming breaths away and we can begin again to sow our dreams and visions for this calendar year. Our inner energy is building to assist us when it comes time to awaken Spring. All over this continent and beyond, People are gathering to create a re-collection of common purpose. Turn any doubt you may have into courage to believe in what is right and good --- as a friend says --- “think and act with a good mind and a pure heart.” Good medicine to all of you and your relatives throughout this new year!

My special gratitude to Mizero (mizerochildren.org) for bringing the Rwandan children to bless our lives last season and to all the host families who made their stay memorable and good.

2. TOUR CENTRAL US


Jackie will be touring in several new states in the first week in February. Details below in calendar. She will be joined for part of the tour by Rich Stein, World percussionist and student of the world-renown player and teacher, Jamey Haddad.
