At dawn, may I roam
Against the winds, may I roam

Lakota
    
Slide 4 of 10




"Everything as it moves, now and then, here and there, makes stops. The bird as it flies stops in one place to make its nest, and in another to rest in its flight. A man when he goes forth stops when he will. So God has stopped. The sun, which is so bright and beautiful, is one place where he has stopped. The moon, the stars, the winds he has been with. The trees, the animals, are all where he has stopped, and we think about these places and send our prayers to reach the place where God has stopped, to win help and a blessing."
Lakota




Before proceeding in the hunt, it is necessary to stop, take a smoke, and offer a prayer to the Medicine Fathers. They will always hear the prayer of a sincere hunter. It is not through the great skill of the hunter himself that success is achieved, but through the hunter’s awareness of his place in Creation and his relationship to all things.
Thomas Yellowtail, Absaroke
