ELDERS DAILY MEDITATIONS
“Oh God! Like the Thunderbird of old I shall rise again out of the sea; I shall grab the instruments of the white man’s success- his education, his skills, and with these new tools I shall build my race into the proudest segment of your society.”
–Chief Dan George, SALISH
One thing the Indian people do well is adapt. This is why we survive. We must learn to keep our culture, but also to learn the good things that other races have to offer. Education is the future weapon of Native people. We must learn the legal system, health, science and engineering. Indian people have great contributions to make to the world. We need to educate ourselves so we can better protect the land and our children. Otherwise, we will lose the things and the land that we have.
Great Spirit, make me teachable today.
SOMETHING EXTRA TO THINK ABOUT
Msit Nókmaq/All My Relations,
It is too bad Tecumseh never knew what a Chameleon was. But in reality he felt the connection from the Great Spirit. The vision of a Nation one day being of all people and considered the Rainbow Nation. I do not believe he was referring to Jessie Jacksons rainbow or the Gay communities Rainbow but he was referring to ALL people as the RAINBOW. The Chameleon teaches us how to adapt just as many other creatures do. We should take time out to listen to our Elders and Respect them because they do have many good teachings.
