ALL SACRED

"We are part of the earth and it is part of us.

The perfumed flowers are our sisters; the deer, the horse, the great eagle, these are our brothers.

The rocky crests, the juices in the meadows, the body heat of the pony, and man—all belong to the same family.”

-Chief Seattle

ALL SACRED

"Every part of this earth is sacred to my people.

Every shining pine needle, every sandy shore, every mist in the dark woods, every clearing and humming insect is holy in the memory and experience of my people. The sap which courses through the trees carries the memories of the red man.”

-Chief Seattle

THIS EARTH IS PRECIOUS

How can you buy or sell the sky, the warmth of the land? The idea is strange to us. If we do not own the freshness of the air and sparkle of the water, how can you buy them?

"This we know: the earth does not belong to man, man belongs to the earth. All things are connected like the blood that unites us all. Man did not weave the web of life, he is merely a strand in it. Whatever he does to the web, he does to himself."
-Chief Seattle
As I was driving along Tramway drive through an Indian reservation near Sandia Mountains, New Mexico, I saw this herd of buffalo grazing. The day was overcast with a new snow on the ground. The quiet of the cold day made for a very peaceful scene.

This image is of the Hualapai Mountain range located in northwestern Arizona. The view across the river and the stormy cloud cover made for a dramatic image. I noticed it as I was driving along the I40 heading east on my journey to northern New Mexico.
