White Buffalo Calf Woman. Honoured by many Native American nations, she is said to have appeared to the Lakotas with sacred teachings to foster peace throughout the generations, and ceremonial pipe to amplify the power of all prayers. She transformed into a buffalo, changing colours to represent every human ethnicity, teaching that we are all one. She promised to return one day, following the birth of a white buffalo and bring peace to all nations.

Beautiful

Our people grieve because their way of life is not as it was intended to be. The Great Spirit is always there, but life around them is rapidly changing for the worse. We long in our Spirit for the Ancient of Days again. Where all the materialism fades and the Nature of Creation blooms free, where waters run pure and the ground is fertile and all things walk in LOVE and Peace.

I am a red man. If the Great Spirit had desired me to be a white man he would have made me so in the first place. He put in your heart certain wishes and plans, in my heart he put other and different desires. Each man is good in his sight. It is not necessary for Eagles to be Crows. We are poor... but we are free. No white man controls our footsteps. If we must die...we die defending our rights. - Sitting Bull Hunkpapa Sioux (Tatanka Iyotake)

Crazy Horse quote.

"Warriors are not what you think of as warriors. The warrior is not someone who fights, because no one has the right to take another life. The warrior, for us, is one who sacrifices himself for the good of others. His task is to take care of the elderly, the defenseless, those who can not provide for themselves, and above all, the children, the future of humanity." --Sitting Bull

native american thanksgiving

Teach me how to trust my heart, my mind, my intuition, my inner knowing, the senses of my body, the blessings of my spirit. Teach me to trust these things so that I may enter my Sacred Space* and love beyond my fear, and thus Walk in Balance with the passing of each glorious Sun. ~Lakota Prayer *According to the Native People, the Sacred Space is the space between exhalation and inhalation. To Walk in Balance is to have Heaven (spirituality) and Earth (physicality) in Harmony
