"The words which mean ‘drunken’ and ‘dizzy’ are, in the Papago language, sacred and poetic words, for the trance of drunkenness is akin to the trance of vision…

I am sitting and getting drunk
Beautiful songs I shall unfold…

Dizzy women
Are seizing my heart.
Westward they are leading me.
I like it.
One on each side,
They are leading me.

Much dizziness,
Much dizziness
Within me is swelling,
And more and more.
Every which way I am falling."

–Ruth Underhill, "Singing for Power: The Song Magic of the Papago Indians of Southern Arizona" (1938)
