"Even when feeding, he [the elk] never seems to forget his dignity."

“The earth is your grandmother and mother, and she is sacred. Every step that is taken upon her should be as a prayer.”
—Black Elk, Lakota




"Silence is greater than speech. This is why we honor animals, who are more silent than man, and we reverence the trees and rocks, where the Great Mystery lives undisturbed, in a peace that is never broken."
Ohiyesa, Santee Dakota





"The elk walks among his herd as if there is nothing in the sky nor on earth that is his equal. And others of the herd seem to think so. Even when feeding, he never seems to forget his dignity. With every mouthful of food, up goes his head as he watches over his herd."
Standing Bear, Lakota
