Oh Great Spirit of our Ancestors, I raise my pipe to you. To your messengers the four winds, and to Mother Earth who provides for your children. Give us the wisdom to teach our children to love, to respect, and to be kind to each other so that they may grow with peace of mind Let us learn to share all good things that you provide for us on this Earth.
“Peace comes within the souls of man, when they realize their oneness with the Universe, when they realize it is really everywhere – - – it is within each one of us.”
Black Elk, Lakota Medicine Man
