Honoring Mother Earth, Part 2

      Some more quotes to savor:

We must protect the forests for our children, grandchildren and children yet to be born.  We must protect the forests for those who can't speak for themselves such as the birds, animals, fish and trees.  (Qwatsinas [Hereditary Chief Edward Moody], Nuxalk Nation)

I do not see a delegation for the Four Footed.  I see no seat for the Eagles.  We forget and we consider ourselves superior.  But we are after all a mere part of Creation.  And we must consider to understand where we are.  And we stand somewhere between the mountain and the ant.  Somewhere and only there as part and parcel of the Creation.  (Chief Oren Lyons, Oneida, 1977)
