“Being Indian is an attitude, a state of mind, a way of being in harmony with all things and all beings.”
“I have gotten back more and more to the ancient ways. This happened as I began to have visions; I was drawn back to the old ways by them. I did not choose it outwardly; it came as I released old ways of being, its irresistible call bringing me home.”
“Any of us can dream, but seeking vision is always done not only to heal and fulfill one's own potential, but also to learn to use that potential to serve all our relations: the two-leggeds, the four-leggeds, the wingeds, those that crawl upon the Earth, and the Mother Earth herself.”
“The Indian people are the people of the heart. The finest of my elders remind me that being Indian is an attitude, a state of mind, a way of being in harmony with all things and all beings. It is allowing the heart to be the distributor of energy on this planet: to allow feelings and sensitivities to determine where energy goes; bringing aliveness up from the Earth and down from the Sky, putting it in and giving it out from the heart, the very center of one's being. That is the Indian way.”
“... whatever we do to any other thing in the great web of life, we do to ourselves, for we are one.”
“The dramatic action that we need to create a way of life on Earth that really works will be taken not through personal, social, or political action, but through spiritual action.”
“Spiritual warrior's pledge: Not for myself alone, but that all the people may live.”
