Slide 9 of 10




"Tatanka, the buffalo, should always be treated with respect, for was he not here before the two-legged peoples, and is he not generous in that he gives us our homes and food? The buffalo is wise in many things, and, thus, we learn from him and will always be a relative with him."
Black Elk, Lakota




"We Lakota have a close relationship to the buffalo. He is our brother. You can’t understand about nature, about the feeling we have toward it, unless you understand how close we were to the buffalo. That animal was almost like a part of ourselves, part of our souls."
Lame Deer, Lakota

Look around!
Do you see the whole world, dear child?
There is nothing for you to be afraid of in death,
Go home, sleep well, and eat.
As long as you have teeth you have nothing to fear.
