The painting Dhagaan defines many of the honest and essential qualities of a great man and warrior. Commitment to Spirit, connection to Gunimaa (Mother Earth), knowledge of his lore, his masculine identity, his roles and responsibilities and finally, his undying covenant with the feminine to be the guardian of the sacred and all that comes from Her.
A full man is to know from whim and from where he comes and like the emu feather, understand the two choices he has in all he thinks, says and does.
Integrity, strength and sensitivity, honour, loyalty, passion, direction and confidence. Along with all else mentioned above helps see and foster an identity so needed in our world today.
