Of Creator I am
One with all that is
A tear on a journey earthward
Born of a Cloud Peoples pain
I feel Earth Mothers agony
Her keepers are walking away
Questing for gold

Streams and rivers

Nourishing her children
From cheek to pool

Sassafras's note: It appears that something got lost in the translation of what Geronimo believed and how he was perceived and reacted to. Perhaps as he… Continue

John Wooden Legs, Cheyenne
Our land is everything to us...I will tell you one of the things we remember on our land. We remember that our grandfathers paid for it - with their lives."

A Native American grandfather was talking to his grandson about how he felt.
He said, "I feel as if I have two wolves fighting in my heart.
One wolf is the vengeful, angry, violent one. The other wolf is the loving, compassionate one."
The grandson asked him, "Which wolf will win the fight in your heart?"
The grandfather answered: "The one I feed."
