Sea Dreaming During my sea dreaming, I created water-fairies who magically swim with fish. These “people of the water” that the Cherokee called “Yunwi Amai'yine'hi”, are friendly folks who help fisherman and other humans. You see, for the Cherokee, water is sacred and has power. One ritual, called “going to water,” was performed on many occasions — at the new moon, before special dances, after bad dreams, or during illnesses. Going to water cleansed the spirit as well as the body. The ritual was performed at sunrise. Cherokee men, women, and children would face the east, step into a river or creek, and dip under the water seven times. When they emerged, they would be rid of bad feelings and ready to begin anew, with a clear mind.
