As we read the wisdom of these peoples, it is possible to feel a reconnection with our land and ourselves. Taken from orations, recorded observations of life and social affairs, and other first-person testimonies, this book selects a wide range of Native American wisdom and distills it to its essence in short, digestible quotes that are meaningful and timeless -- perhaps even more timely now than when they were written.

Having lived on this land before the coming of Christopher Columbus, their numbers are now dwindling. Help preserve their culture by getting to know these Native American quotes.

Among the Indians there have been no written laws. Customs handed down from generation to generation have been the only laws to guide them. Every one might act different from what was considered right did he choose to do so, but such acts would bring upon him the censure of the Nation…. The ground on which we stand is sacred ground.

It is the blood of our ancestors. How smooth must be the language of the whites, when they can make right look like wrong, and wrong like right. Children learn from what they see.

Kent Nerburn - Wikipedia

We need to set an example of truth and action. We know our lands have now become more valuable. The white people think we do not know their value; but we know that the land is everlasting, and the few goods we receive for it are soon worn out and gone. We must protect the forests for our children, grandchildren and children yet to be born. We do not want riches. We want peace and love.

Father Albert D'Souza spiritual wisdom saying

When the Earth is sick, the animals will begin to disappear, when that happens, The Warriors of the Rainbow will come to save them. I am poor and naked, but I am the chief of the nation. We do not want riches but we do want to train our children right.

This war did not spring up on our land, this war was brought upon us by the children of the Great Father who came to take our land without a price, and who, in our land, do a great many evil things… This war has come from robbery — from the stealing of our land. The Indian needs no writings; words that are true sink deep into his heart, where they remain. He never forgets them. On the other hand, if the white man loses his papers, he is helpless.
