What is Life?

Winter Bison
Floating Through The Storm

 

“What is life?

It is the flash of a firefly in the night. It is the breath of a buffalo in the wintertime. It is the little shadow which runs across the grass and loses itself in the sunset”.

— Crowfoot, Blackfoot Warrior

Stand… In Understanding

Black Elk
  •  And while I stood there
  • I saw more than I can tell
  • and I understood more than I saw;
  • for I was seeing in a sacred manner
  • the shapes of things in the spirit,
  • and the shape of all shapes as they must
  • live together like one being.
