“Sacred sites and areas are protection for all people—the four colors for man—and these sites are in all areas of the earth in the four directions.”
–Traditional Circle of Elders, NORTHERN CHEYENNE
The Elders say that values come from the Mother Earth. Different places and areas around the Earth have different values. The Water people live in harmony and know the values that correspond to that particular part of the Earth. The Desert people know the values of the desert and respect and live in harmony with that part of the Earth. The Woodland people know the values of their part of the Earth and live in harmony. If you live in harmony with the Earth, you will live a life that is full of values. We should have great respect for the Mother Earth.
Grandfather, today, let me learn values from Mother Earth.
SOMETHING EXTRA TO THINK ABOUT
Msit Nókmaq/All My Relations,
How do we distinguish what is and where Sacred sights are when All that Creator has created is Sacred? The ground we walk on is as Sacred as the air we breathe and just as the water we rely on to survive is. Our relationship to all things should be considered Sacred and we should not pick and choose. We need to get back to our roots and learn the real values of things instead of the value of the whitemans greed of gold, silver, land and the vile disrespect of other human beings beliefs. Our earth is being destroyed by those who have hearts of greed and lust for more money, we must pray for them. They are wiping out our natural medicines, our food, our homes and our lives so what am I doing today to add to this or to subtract from this problem or problems?

Thank you for helping me to understand that everything you have done is considered sacred. I have no right to say which is and which is not because you are the only one that can make that call. I am just a human being striving to do your will and not mine.Please help me to continue my walk.
