Sacred Ground

The Great Spirit is in all things. He is in the air we breathe. The Great Spirit is our Father, but the Earth is our Mother. She nourishes us…..That which we put into the ground she returns to us.
Big Thunder (Bedagi) Wabanaki Algonquin

The land is sacred. These words are at the core of your being. The land is our mother, the rivers our blood. Take our land away and we die. That is, the Indian in us dies.
Mary Brave Bird

Sacred Ground

Treat the earth well. It was not given to you by your parents—it was loaned to you by your children.
Indian proverb

The ground on which we stand is sacred ground. It is the blood of our ancestors.
Plenty Coups, Crow

  1. An amazing work of fine art! this, to me, tells the story of a young warrior, brave and strong, beginning to understand, at last, his spiritual self.. love the mountains and trees and of course, the Indians. Inspiring piece and very good to see more of your art. ~Scott
