Just thought, I haven't seen any threads on native Indians.. (I don't look too hard to be honest....) Just wanted to share this Lakota prayer.. Ate Wakantanka, Mitawa ki, Wazi ya tanhan, ka te na Wa ska ki u ya ye ki, Hena un Taku ya kage ki, ya glu ska kta, he ca nu, He iye cel, Wakantanka, Anpetu kil le, Micante Ki Mi ci yu Ska ye, He cel tohanl, nitokab woyasu ki el, wahinajin ki, ima ya cu kta. Ate Wakantanka, Wiyohiyanpatan, wi hin nape, ki, He ciya tanhan Wiconi oyasin, hin na pe ki, Wiconi mitawa ki el, anpetu wanji a ke mi qu, Heon wo pi la eci ci ye, Micante ki eciya tanhan. ---translates--- My father, great spirit, who send'est the wind and the white snow from the north, to make make thy creation clean and pure, father make me clean and pure within my heart, That I may be accepted in thy sight and judgement. Father, great spirit, To the east from whence cometh the rising of the sun, and all they living creation, Thou hast added another day to my life, for which I give thee thanks with all my heart. --- Anyway, currently looking into the "ghost dances" that the indians perform and various other rituals... Very interesting people..
