Native Americans

Our fathers had plenty of deer and skins, our plains were full of deer, also our woods, and of turkeys, and our coves full of fish and fowl.  But these English having gotten our land, they with scythes cut down the grass, and with axes fell the trees, their cows and horses eat the grass, and their hogs spoil our clam banks, and we shall all be starved. Speech by a Naragansett leader in 1642
Honor the Earth, our Mother. Honor all with whom we share the Earth: four-leggeds, two-leggeds, winged ones, swimmers, crawlers, plant and rock.  Walk in balance and beauty.        Native American Elder
