WISDOM SAYINGS

“When it comes time to die, be not like those whose hearts are filled with the fear of death, so when their time comes they weep and pray for a little more time to live their lives over again in a different way. Sing your death song, and die like a hero going home.”
(Aupumut)


“All of this Creation is Sacred…
And so do not forget. Every Dawn as it comes is a holy event and everyday is holy, for the light comes from Wakan-Tanka… you must remember that the Two-leggeds and All other peoples who stand upon this Earth are Sacred and should be treated as such…”
(White Buffalo Woman)


“How smooth must be the language of the whites, when they can make right look like wrong, and wrong like right.”
(BlackHawk)


“Our wise men are called Fathers, and they truly sustain that character. Do you call yourselves Christians? Does the religion of Him who you call your Savior inspire your spirit, and guide your practices? Surely not. It is recorded of him that a bruised reed he never broke. Cease then to call yourselves Christians, lest you declare to the world your hypocrisy. Cease too to call other nations savage, when you are tenfold more the children of cruelty than they. No person among us desires any other reward for performing a brave and worthwhile action….
I bow to no man…”
