Oh Great Spirit, Our Father, help us and teach us in the way of the truth;
and keep me and my family and my tribe on our true father’s path,
so that we may be in good condition in our minds and in our bodies.
Teach all of the little ones in Your Way. Make peace on all the world.
We thank you for the sun and the good summer weather again;
and we hope they will bring good crops of grass for the animals
and things to eat for all peoples.
~Attributed to Long Lance, Souix
All birds, even those of the same species, are not alike, and it is the same with animals and with human beings. The reason Wakan Tanka does not make two birds, or animals, or human beings exactly alike is because each is placed here by Wakan Tanka to be an independent individuality and to rely upon itself.
~Shooter, Teton Souix
