Thank you flower70. I love the quotes, prayers and stories of Native American leaders of the past and often put them in this thread. Each quote or prayer is meaningful to someone in a special way.



Walk in Peace and Harmony.

Children Learn What They Live
If a child lives with criticism, he learns to condemn.
If a child lives with hostility, he learns to fight.
If a child lives with ridicule, he learns to be shy.
If a child lives with shame, he learns to feel quilty.
If a child lives with tolerance, he learns to be patient.
If a child lives with encouragement, he learns confidence.
If a child lives with praise, he learns to appreciate.
If a child lives with security, he learns to have faith.
If a child lives with fairness, he learns justice.
If a child lives with approval, he learns to like himself.
If a child lives with acceptance and friendship, he learns to find love in the world.

Great Spirit - I want no blood upon my land to stain the grass. I want it clear and pure, and I wish it so, that all who go through among my people may find it peaceful when they come, and leave peacefully when they go.

Grandfather, Great Spirit, as our dear brother walks on
Grant that he may follow the trail of peace,
And rest in the land of his ancestors,
And be in harmony at the campfire in Your spirit world.
Send strength and courage to his family who are grieving
And heal them, O' Great Spirit.

Grandfather, Great Spirit, hold up his beloved wife
And give her courage to walk Mother Earth in peace
Till she is once more beside her beloved husband
In Your world of eternal peace.
He was a good man on Earth and will be missed.
Yet we know he is safe in Your care.

Thank you, O' Great Spirit.


For Tim and Katie.

There is something about gathering around a campfire that ignites the senses and brings me to a place of meditation almost instantly. Perhaps that stems from my Native American roots or it is something everyone experiences, I'm not sure. As a small child, I remember my grandmother telling me about my Indian heritage. The story was one of young love, courage and betrayal but it is from whence I came. My great-great grandfather met a beautiful Indian girl, the daughter of a medicine man, she was half his age. She fell in love with him but her father was furious. He kept her under close watch for months but whenever possible she would escape to visit her beloved suitor at the edge of the nearby town. When she told her father of her undying love for him, he vowed to kill him but she was able to persuade him against it because she was his only daughter. He loved her so much that he risked losing her by allowing her wishes to be granted. When my great-great grandfather and "Maw" could no longer endure the pain of being apart, they ran off together leaving her father angry, alone and hurt. As the years passed, Maw never returned to her Indian village nor did she have any contact with her father. After having children of her own and suffering the death of her beloved husband, she decided to return to the village to allow her children the opportunity to meet her father and to make peace in her heart with him. Upon her arrival she was met with harsh words from her former tribe. When her father approached her, she was excited and relieved to see he was still alive. Her joy was immediately turned to hurt when he told her to go away, she was no longer welcome in the village with her white children. The day she left the village, the elders agreed to banish her from the tribe. She fell to the ground pleading with him not to turn her away but he walked away leaving her sobbing as she clung to her children. Maw lived a very long healthy life. To all who knew her, she was "the Indian Princess". The love of her life was her children, whom she bore with the man she loved deeply enough to forsake all to be with. She was loved by many in her "white" world where she resided. Pictures of her portray a woman worn by the travails of life but her heart was tainted only twice. Once by the loss of her dear beloved husband and the second was because a father, whom she loved, shunned her because she followed her true heart.

Welcome to the Native American forum, SoulSeeker. Thank you for sharing that beautiful story with us.

Grandfather Great Spirit

All over the world the faces
of living ones are alike.

With tenderness they have
come up out of the ground.

Look upon your children
that they may face the winds
And walk the good road to the Day of Quiet.

Grandfather Great Spirit
Fill us with the Light.
Give us the strength to understand,
And the eyes to see.

Teach us to walk the soft Earth
As relatives to all that lives.
