Starting from the static Skyrme model baryon wavefunctions in their helicity eigenstates, we generalize the wavefunctions to the non-static and relativistic regime. A new representation for gamma matrices in the SU(2) collective space is constructed and the corresponding Dirac equation is obtained. Finally, we comment on possible applications of our results to the calculation of matrix elements of baryonic currents and the corresponding form factors in the relativistic case.
