The Original American Warriors

" Oh Great Spirit, Whose Voice I Hear
in the wind,
Whose breath gives life to the world,
hear me.
I come to you as one of your many children,
I am small and weak,
I need your strength and wisdom.
May I walk in beauty,
make my eyes behold the red and purple sunset,
make my hands respect the
things that you have made,
and my ears sharp
to hear your voice.
Make me wise so that
I may know the things that you
have taught your children,
the lessons that you have hidden in
every leaf and rock.
Make me strong...
not to be superior to my brothers
but to be able to fight my greatest enemy
.. myself.
Make me ever ready to come to you
with straight eyes
so that when life fades as the faded sunset,
my spirit will come to you
without shame. "
