Listen to the air. You can hear it, feel it, smell it, taste it.
Woniya wakan—the holy air—which renews all by its breath.
Woniya, woniya wakan—spirit, life, breath, renewal—it means all that. Woniya—we sit together, don’t touch, but something is there; we feel it between us, as a presence.
A good way to start thinking about nature, talk about it. Rather: talk to it, talk to the rivers, to the lakes, to the winds as to our relatives.John Lame Deer
The world in which you paint a picture in your mind, a picture which shows things different from what your eyes sees, that is the world from which I get my visions. I tell you this is the real world.John Lame Deer
