Native American Sayings for Walking a Peaceful Path

Native American sayings are based on an Earth-centered philosophy. To the Native American, the Earth is mother which means we're all related. In this unassuming way, the American Indian honors all he sees as a unique expression of God. This perspective purifies the heart and protects us from spiritual arrogance.
