Indigenous Peoples' Literature

"Not to be aware of the past is to be forever a child,
but those of us who forget the past are condemned to repeat it.

Mankind IS the sum of his ancestors."


Indigenous Peoples' Literature


Great Spirit, Great Spirit, My Grandfather,
All over the earth the faces of living things are all alike. . .
Look upon these faces of children without number
And with children in their arms,
That they may face the winds and
Walk the good road to the day of quiet. . .

Prayer with Music

There is no death. . .
Only a change of worlds. . .
Only a change of worlds.

Poetry

"Oh, Eagle, come with wings
outspread in sunny skies. Oh,
Eagle, come and bring us peace,
thy gentle peace. Oh, Eagle,
come and give new life to us
who pray."

"Remember the circle of the
sky, the stars, and the brown
eagle, the great life of the
Sun, the young within the nest."
