Welcome to Realm of the White Wolf!!!!!

~Welcome To the Wisdom of the Ancient Ones~

Here I will take you back over the century To a time when great chiefs spoke
and warriors listened When lives were spiritual in meaning to them
Then you will learn some of the stories that became the Myths and Legends of their belief,
that will be coming soon.
If we too can look into their lives Maybe we can begin to understand their hearts

For the Native Americans we have had many strong and outstanding speakers.
Down over the decades since the beginning of the push west by the white man,
there was doubt about the survival of the Indians and many of the great chiefs spoke on that.
Their beliefs and their strength were alive in the words they spoke.


"What is man without the beasts? If all the beasts were gone,
men would die from great loneliness of spirit,
for whatever happens to the beasts also happens to man.
All things are connected. Whatever befalls the earth befalls the children of the earth."
-Chief Seattle-
Suqwamish and Duwamish


"I love that land of winding waters more than all the rest of the world.
A man who would not love his father's grave is worse than a wild animal."
-Chief Joseph-
Nez Perce


"I love the land and the buffalo and will not part with it.....I want the children raised as I was
...I don't want to settle. I love to roam over the prairies. There I feel free and happy,
but when we settle down we grow pale and die."
Kiowa Chief


"You must speak straight so that your words may go as sunlight into our heart."
Chiricahua Apache Chief


"A treaty, in the minds of our people, is an eternal word.
Events often make it seem expedient to depart from the pledged word,
but we are conscious that the first departure creates
a logic for the second departure, until there is nothing left of the word."
-Declaration of Indian Purpose(1961)
American Indian Chicago Conference


"We are all poor because we are all honest."
-Red Dog-
Oglala Sioux


"My friends, how desperately do we need to be loved and to love......
Without love we can no longer look out confidently at the world.
We turn inward and begin to feed upon our own personalities,
and little by little we destroy ourselves. With it we are creative.
With if we march tirelessly. With it, and with it alone, we are able for others."
-Chief Dan George-


"We have men among us, like the whites, who pretend to know the right path,
but will not consent to show it without pay! I have no faith in their paths,
but believe that every man must make his own path!"
-Black Hawk-


"No tribe has the right to sell, even to each other,
much less to strangers....Sell a country!!
Why not sell the air, the great sea, as well as the earth??
Didn't the Great Spirit make them all for the use of his children?"


"I was born upon the prairie where the wind blew free and there was nothing
to break the light of the sun.
I was born where there were no enclosures and where everything drew a few breath.
I want to die there, and not within wall."
-Ten Bears-
Yamparika Comanche


"Tell your people that since the Great Father promised that
we should never be removed we have been moved five times.
I think you had better put the Indians on wheels
so you can run them about wherever you wish."
-Anonymous Chief(1876)


"Civilization has been thrust upon me...and it has not
added one whit to my love
for truth, honesty and generosity."
-Chief Luther Standing Bear-
Oglala Sioux


"White man's picture all fade, but the Indian's memories last forever."
-Indian guide to Tom Wilson(1882)-


"The white man does not understand America.
He is too far removed from its formative process.
The roots of the tree of his life have not yet grasped the rock and the soil.....
But in the Indian the spirit of the land is still vested;
it will be a long time until other men are able to meet its rhythm.
Men must be born and reborn to belong.
Their bodies must be formed of the dust of their forefather's bones."
-Chief Luther Standing Bear-
Oglala Sioux


"The white people think we have no brains in our heads.
They are great and powerful, and that makes them make war with us.
We are but a little handful to what you are.
But remember.....when you hunt for a rattlesnake,
you usually cannot find it...and perhaps it will bite you before you see it."
Delaware Chief


All these sayings are from the book "The Wisdom of the Native Americans" edited by Kent Nerburn.

May you find something of the truth and strength
of the Native Americans in these words and understand their struggle.
For though other peoples have had their struggle throughout time,
these people were trampled on and over
and even a president of the United States managed to put a price on their heads,
like that of an animal.
May my ancestors help guide me in the ways of old and remember whence I came from.

Please take the wolf and send her on her way around the world to continue her walk
in the name of the plight of the animals who cannot speak
for themselves yet continue to die at the hands of humans.

A Lakota Prayer

Great Spirit, you are everything
And yet above everything
You are first and always have been
Through you our children will have strong hearts
And they will walk the straight path in a sacred manner
Help me to walk the sacred path of life
Without difficulty
With my mind and heart continually fixed on you!
