Native American Wisdoms
"... I hope the Great Wakan Tanka, who will look down upon us, will give all the tribes His blessing, that we may go forth in peace, and live in peace all our days, and that He will look down upon our children and finally lift us far above this earth; and that the Great Wakan Tanka will look upon our children as His children, that all the tribes may be His children, and as we shake hands to-day upon this broad plain, we may forever live in peace." - Chief Red Cloud [Makpiya-Luta] (late 19th century) Oglala Sioux Chief.
"Seek wisdom, not knowledge. Knowledge is of the past, wisdom is on the future.' - Lumbee
"...everything on the earth has a purpose, every disease an herb to cure it, and every person a mission. This is the Indian theory of existence." - Morning Dew [Christine Quintasket] (1888 - 1936) Salish
