Extractions: The outline of the stone is round, having no end and no beginning; like the power of the stone it is endless. The stone is perfect of its kind and is the work of nature, no artificial means being used in shaping it. Outwardly it is not beautiful, but its structure is solid, like a solid house in which one may safely dwell I have noticed in my life that all men have a liking for some special animal, tree, plant, or spot of earth. If men would pay more attention for these preferences and seek what is best to do in order to make themselves worthy of that toward which they are so attracted, they might have dreams which would purify their lives. Let a man decide upon his favorite animal and make a study of it, learning its innocent ways. Let hiim learn to understand its sounds and motions. The animals want to communicate with man, but Wakantanka does not intend they shall do so directly man must do the greater part in securing an understanding
Extractions: This document was prepared with borrowed University of Virginia Library Electronic Text Center etext for Arthur's Classic Novels. Etext was prepared by volunteers. XHTML markup by Arthur Wendover. April 15, 2004. (See source text for details.) This is the etext version of the book Old Indian Legends by Zitkala-Sa, taken from the original etext oldind10.txt. Arthur's Classic Novels Preface THESE legends are relics of our country's once virgin soil. These and many others are the tales the little black-haired aborigine loved so much to hear beside the night fire. For him the personified elements and other spirits played in a vast world right around the center fire of the wigwam. Iktomi, the snare weaver, Iya, the Eater, and Old Double-Face are not wholly fanciful creatures. There were other worlds of legendary folk for the young aborigine, such as "The Star- Men of the Sky," "The Thunder Birds Blinking Zigzag Lightning," and "The Mysterious Spirits of Trees and Flowers." Under an open sky, nestling close to the earth, the old Dakota story-tellers have told me these legends. In both Dakotas, North and South, I have often listened to the same story told over again by a new story-teller.

Extractions: Welcome to the peace and serenity of my site. Inside I can promise you many surprises and a variety of information that I know will help you grow spiritually, so please step in and walk a transitional path with me that will guide you to the highest realms. My Mission My mission on this earth is to bring love, peace and guidance to all who seek wisdom from The Great Spirit and the infinite wisdom of the " Grandfathers ". Dedication This site is dedicated to my beloved husband A New Day , whose love has reached beyond the very essence of time. ".....the voice of the Great Spirit is heard in the twittering of birds, the rippling of mighty waters, and the sweet breathing of flowers. If this is Paganism, then at present, at least, I am a Pagan." You have noticed that everything an Indian does is in a circle, and that is because the Power of the World always works in circles, and everything tries to be round. . . . The sky is round, and I have heard that the earth is round like a ball, and so are all the stars. the wind, in its greatest power, whirls. Birds make their nests in circles, for theirs is the same religion as ours. Even the seasons form a great circle in their changing, and always come back again to where they were. The life of a man is a circle from childhood to childhood, and so it is in everything where power moves.

Extractions: The Shaman in tribal cultures is the person who sees into the sacred otherworld. The Shaman then brings these sacred visions of ancient spirits and power animals out of the "other world" and into the ritual. By this ritual process (much like prayer, imagery, and art), the Shaman heals themselves, other members of their tribe, and Mother Earth. By having visions of healing, and doing sacred ritual, the Shaman makes the visions come true (much like witches do in their own rituals and visualizations). The Shaman manifests reality in the outer world, from the visionary otherworld. What is a Vision Quest? A vision quest is a quest for the visions in anyones life that will heal them and make them whole. In traditional first nations cultures, young people were sent into nature to listen to the voices of the living earth. The elders taught them to do this to find their path in life and to find their power animals, or Totems. The person on the vision quest spent days in caves, on mountain tops, on rivers and in the desert. Most of this time spent is waiting and inviting the voices to come to them. Often times they used herbal remedies to help them, as well as fasting rituals. When they heard the voices and saw their vision, they would return to the people of their tribe with the knowledge of who they were supposed to be.
