Native American quotes

Favorite Native American quotes

Hello all!

Over time, I have collected numerous Native American quotes from great chiefs and unknown authors. Just wanted to share a few today so that all can enjoy them. As you will notice, the message is often the same. Respect the earth, as it is your mother, respect all your relations around you, animate and inanimate, remember that we are all related and connected. Therefore, what I do affects others and vice versa. Treat your children as the Elders of tomorrow and nature as your connection to the Creator. Remember what your ancestors have been through for you to be here today. Never forget the trauma the Native people have gone through. Use it as a motivation to get in touch with the traditional way of life, of healing, of living. Enjoy. Lest we forget

    Hi Emily.
    Reading your post on Native American Quotes, i have a favourite.
    It’s this one.
    “Humankind has not woven the web of life.
    We are but one thread within it.
    Whatever we do to the web,we do to ourselves.
    All things are bound together,all things connect.”

    It’s like they knew the universe and quantum physics in their own wisdom.

    I like the story of the fighting wolves too, as we manifest whatever we focus our thoughts on.

    Very inspiring.

    All the best to you.

    Pete.

      Hi Pete!
      That is one of my favorite quotes too. It speaks very well to the native concept that we are related. I had never thought about it in terms of quantum physics.

        Yeah, not to sound too confusing, but Quantum physicists have found the interconnectedness of everything. how the universe is like one whole conciousness.

        The ancient wisdom sort of knew all this in a spiritual sense.

        Don’t dwell too deeply though, let the scientists work it out!

        Have a nice day
        Pete.

          thats true Pete. the universe is one collective consciousness, a concept Natives and psychoanalyst Carl Jung discussed a long time ago. I guess physics caught up and discussed it on a more tangible level. But our ancestors did know about it and transmitted the information from one generation to the next. 🙂

      We are all one indeed! And we must not only take care of ourselves but also all our relations in nature and the mother of us all, Mother Earth.

    I like the quotes where they talk about the Great Spirit. If only humans could get to the idea that we all worship the same God,each in our own way.
