We Give Thanks




From the East we give thanks

 to our Mother, the Earth

and to the People, and those yet to be born,

and to the spirit of waters,

who make it possible for all things to live.

We give thanks to the fish, they sustain us.

and to the plants, they feed us and make us well,

and to the trees,

who give us shelter, shade and fruits.

and to the animal creatures,

 who give us companionship and sustenance.

We give thanks to the birds, they sing sweet songs, 

& carry our messages to the Creator

From the North we give greetings & thanks to

the Four Winds, they refresh the air

& to the Grandfather Thunderers,

they bring the falling rains,

and to our Elder Brother Sun,

Every sunrise is a miracle of his light and warmth.

To the West, we give greetings and thanks

to Grandmother Moon,

and to the South, we give thanks to the Stars,

their sparkle guides us home.

To the East, we honor the four Sky Dwellers,

we thank all those who teach and guide us

We give greetings and thanks to the Creator

and for all that has been given us.

Now our minds are as one.
