Native American Wisdom

"Oh Great Spirit, whose voice I hear in the wind,
Whose breath gives life to all the world.
Hear me. I need your strength and wisdom.
Let me walk in beauty and make my eyes ever behold
the red and purple sunset.
Make my hands respect the things
you have made and my ears sharp to hear your voice.
Make me wise so that I may understand
the things you have taught my people.
Let me learn the lessons you have hidden in every leaf and rock.
I seek strength, not to be greater than my brother,
but to fight my greatest enemy - Myself.
Make me always ready to come to
you with clean hands and straight eyes.
So when life fades, as the fading sunset,
my spirit may come to you without shame."
~ Great Spirit Prayer (Native American Prayer)

"In the time of the seventh fire, a new people would emerge. They would retrace their steps to find the wisdom that was left by the side of the trail long ago. Their steps would take them to the elders, who they would ask to guide them on their journey. If the new people remain strong in their quest, the sacred drum will again sound its voice. There will be an awakening of the people, and the sacred fire will again be lit. At this time, the light-skinned race will be given a choice between two roads. One road is the road of greed and technology without wisdom or respect for life. This road represents a rush to destruction. The other road is spirituality, a slower path that includes respect for all living things. If we choose the spiritual path, we can light yet another fire, an eight fire, and begin an extended period of peace and healthy growth."
~ excerpt from the prophecy of the Seven Fires of the Anishnabe, written on the ancient wampum belt carekept by Grandfather William Commanda, named Chief of the Indians of the Americas in 1957, and founder of the Circle of All Nations

"I see a time of Seven Generations when all the colours of humankind will gather under the Sacred Tree of Life and the whole earth will become one circle again... I salute the light within your eyes where the whole universe dwells. For when you are at that centre within you, and I am at that place within me, we shall be one." quote - Crazy Horse (Tȟašúŋke Witkó

"Humankind has not woven the web of life. We are but one thread within it. Whatever we do to the web, we do to ourselves. All things are bound together. All things connect."
quote - Chief Seattle (Noah Seattle)

"A woman's highest calling is to lead a man to his soul, so as to unite him with Source; her lowest calling is to seduce, separating man from soul and leave him aimlessly wandering. A man's highest calling is to protect woman, so she is free to walk the Earth unharmed. Man's lowest calling is to ambush and force his way into the Life of a woman." 
~ Cherokee Proverb
"I wish it to be remembered 
that I was the last man of my tribe to surrender my rifle".
quote ~ Sitting Bull (Tȟatȟáŋka Íyotake) 

"The first peace, which is the most important, is that which comes within the souls of men when they realize their relationship, their oneness, with the universe and all its Powers, and when they realize that at the center of the universe dwells Wakan-Tanka, and that this center is really everywhere, it is within each of us. This is the real Peace, and the others are but reflections of this. The second peace is that which is made between two individuals, and the third is that which is made between two nations. But above all you should understand that there can never be peace between nations until there is first known that true peace which, as I have often said, is within the souls of men." 
quote - Black Elk

"When birds fall from the sky and the animals are dying, a new tribe of people shall come unto the Earth from many colors, classes, creeds, who by their actions and deeds shall make the earth green again. They will be known as the Warriors of the Rainbow."
~ Hopi Prophecy

"The soul would have no rainbow if the eyes had no tears." 
~ Hopi Tribe 

"Now, the word warrior originally meant 
'one who is not afraid of being himself', 
not 'one who slashes and cuts', 
as we think it means today."
quote ~ Alex Collier

"The love that you withhold is the pain that you carry, 
lifetime after lifetime." 
quote - Vasais
