"If You Live On This Land..."

 "If you live on this land, and you have ancestors sleeping in this land,
I believe that makes you a native to this land.
It has nothing to do with the color of your skin.
I was not raised to look at people racially.
What I was taught is that we're flowers in the Great Spirit's garden.
We share a common root, and the root is Mother Earth."

- Oh Shinnah Fastwolf, Shishindi Nation (Apache)

  1. Indeed God wants flowers in his garden. Unfortunately many prefer and indeed prefer to be weeds.
