Oh Great Spirit,
Whose voice I hear in the winds,
And whose breath gives life to all the world, hear me!
Chief Yellow Lark
We pray for change, we hope for a change, but we wait impatiently. Is
the great spirit not hearing us? We asked. Where is the answer?
If our prayers were suddenly answered, would be we ready? Or would we
look behind us for the familiar things, the people, the habits, the
If we were instantly healed, instantly prospered, instantly sought
after and loved, then what would we do? Attention, compassion and
self-pity are sometimes more important than having everything changed
for the better.
The fear of being without something to keep us working
with the same burden, dealing with familiar pain, can stop us from
knowing what it is to be free and well.
If we can envision life without a particular problem we can turn our
minds to real change and have it happen. If we can see change, receive
it, and know the joy, then gratitude and thanksgiving sets it in

The Creator designed a very simple set of Laws for us to follow. If we follow these simple things, we’ll be happy. If we don’t follow these simple things, our lives become complicated.
Respect Mother Earth
Love one another
Give to your brother and sisters
Be gentle with each other
Following these simple Laws will have great rewards.
Great Spirit, let me lead a simple life.
In retrospect, we have ignored common sense in favor of doing what we wanted to do. We wish we had not done it, but we said what we wanted to say, spoke out when it would have been better to stay quiet – we have overruled our common sense. Looking back again, when did we get off track? What little thing stung us into action? If we learn to hear the voice of wisdom we can overcome our foolishness. Wisdom never lets us down, but ignoring it will put away from us the best friend we can have.

Some quotes that have inspired …
“In our every deliberation, we must consider the impact of our decisions on the next seven generations.”
“It is belief in many native cultures that on the path of healing as each individual heals, that we heal seven generations back as well in healing. ” ~ Aris~
The Tree of Peace
The Tree of peace originated at a time of great conflict and war. Its story is one of the keys to the path of light and peace in native tradition and culture. The tree of peace is the pacifist symboloy, the peacemaker is believed to have been sent by the creator to restore love, peace and harmony back to the people and the earth ~ Aris~
“The sixth nation, the Tuscaroras, migrated into Iroquois country in the early eighteenth century. Together these peoples comprise the oldest living participatory democracy on earth. Their story, and governance truly based on the consent of the governed, contains a great deal of life-promoting intelligence for those of us not familiar with this area of American history. The original United States representative democracy, fashioned by such central authors as Benjamin Franklin and Thomas Jefferson, drew much inspiration from this confederacy of nations.”
“We now do crown you with the sacred emblem of the deer’s antlers, the emblem of your Lordship. You shall now become a mentor of the people of the Five Nations. The thickness of your skin shall be seven spans — which is to say that you shall be proof against anger, offensive actions and criticism. Your heart shall be filled with peace and good will and your mind filled with a yearning for the welfare of the people of the Confederacy. With endless patience you shall carry out your duty and your firmness shall be tempered with tenderness for your people. Neither anger nor fury shall find lodgement in your mind and all your words and actions shall be marked with calm deliberation. In all of your deliberations in the Confederate Council, in your efforts at law making, in all your official acts, self interest shall be cast into oblivion. Cast not over your shoulder behind you the warnings of the nephews and nieces should they chide you for any error or wrong you may do, but return to the way of the Great Law which is just and right. Look and listen for the welfare of the whole people and have always in view not only the present but also the coming generations, even those whose faces are yet beneath the surface of the ground — the unborn of the future Nation.”

OF EAGLES’ WINGS,
THE FAITH AND COURAGE TO
FLY TO NEW HEIGHTS,
