“Indians living close to nature and nature’s ruler are not living in darkness.”
–Walking Buffalo, STONEY–
There are many Indian people who are living according to nature and according to ceremony and culture. They may not have a lot of material things, but that doesn’t mean they are not successful.
  • What is success anyway?
  • Can success be measured by material things?
  • What is it we are really chasing anyway?

The Elders say that what everyone really wants is to be happy and have a peaceful mind. Material things by themselves do not bring happiness and peace of mind. Only spiritual things bring happiness. When we live a spiritual life we will not have darkness. Instead, we will be happy.
Great Spirit, today, let me walk the Red Road.

“To fail to understand another person’s life story is in general to reject one’s own humanity. For those who are bearers of a tradition the opportunity to tell their story can be a gift. Reassurance if they are still indeed still alive that their voices will be heard and their cultures can survive. It is a gift of equal importance for those generations to come who will take up that tradition and shape it to their own needs as the future unfolds,”
