Siting on thin ice, deep, cold water, glacier stream flowing swiftly... Apache Shaman David Lakota sitting on a remote river in Alaska playing the flute and chanting to the Earth Mother, Nature, Spirit, Self and All.
He knows he's in danger. One slip and he plunges into the deep, cold, glacier water. It's easy to die in a situation like this. He can be swept downstream under the ice and be drowned or die of hypothermia. The water is cold enough to kill someone in less than fifteen minutes.
Trusting he is, though, and not prone to take risks beyond those inherent with travel and exploration into known and unknown regions of Alaska's wilderness.
