“Man sometimes thinks he’s been elevated to be the controller, the ruler, but he’s not. He’s only part of the whole. Man’s job is not to exploit, but to oversee, to be a steward. Man has responsibility, not power.”

~ Oren Lyons ~ Faithkeeper


"There is hope if people will begin to awaken that spiritual part of themselves...that heartfelt knowledge that we are caretakers of this planet."

~ Brooke Medicine Eagle


The faces of our future generations are looking up to us from the earth and we step with great care not to disturb our grandchildren.

~Traditional Circle of Elders


Lumbee elder Vernon Cooper says “Everything I know I learned by listening and watching. Nowadays people learn out of books instead. Doctors study what man has learned. I pray to understand what man has forgotten”.

Oh Great Spirit

Let your voice whisper righteousness in our ears through the East Wind at the break of day.

Let us be blessed with love for all our brothers & sisters on Earth so we may truly live in peace.

Let us have good health mentally & physically to solve our problems and accomplish something for future generations.

Let us be sincere to ourselves and make the world a better place to live.

~Aho Mitakuye Oyasin All My Relations
