LAKOTA SIOUX

By Darren M. Grine

 

Let our people of the sacred land roam free

All of nature’s wonders gather around thee

Kindred are we, this is part of our decree

Our heritage is Mother Earth for all to see

Together, we can live in harmony

And remember, all we have to do is to believe

 

Sacred is thy name to behold

Indian culture and beliefs shall be told

Our native land shall never be sold

Unity is our people that are forever bold

X in Sioux will always be our threshold

Sioux Prayer of Gratitude

By Darren M. Grine

 

Oh Great Spirit, creator of all

Allow us to walk as with one

Show us the pathway of dignity

 

Teach us to respect your creation

Give strength amidst times of need

Let it be known you are our guardian

 

Provide us with your many offerings

Forgive with grace when asked upon

Entrust us with sacred Earth’s legacies

 

Grant us the insight to uphold your vision

Inspire knowledge when asked thereafter

Bestow us tranquility as we’re forever grateful
