When God answers our prayer, we do not envision a flaming war chariot with fiery horses.
What does that mean? Agreed, it is an enigmatic quote! And as many quotes it needs to be placed in culture and time. A time were drivers and chariots had supremacy on earth. The God of chariots! The God of victory! A battle of good against evil…
And sooner or later new evidence is found of old civilisations and ancient tribes. In this case the relics of the native people of America who have been slaughtered, killed and exterminated without any respect of their land, language and culture. Horses of warfare!
Their tribal wars also!
Not something to be proud of. … not at all. Not something to forget. And certainly not something to be repeated.
They were proud riders and outstanding warriors. This is a tribute to all of them. Not just on American soil, but all over the world.
A cry out to the nations
O Wioheumpata! The YELLOW east…
From thou comest the Sun. Comes the Light. From Sunset to dawn.
A new begin. A new day.
We Ask the great Spirit, for wisdom and understanding!
O Itokaga! WHITE South…
The sun at its highest, Brings warmth and growing. Drawing life on earth.
We ask the great Spirit, To preserve our lives, For a safe return in the skies
O Wiyokpiyata. The BLACK west..l
Here sets the sun. Here ends the day.
The great Thunderbird lives there. Sending thunder and rains Over our lands.
We ask the great Spirit, To bless and preserve the waters on earth
O Waziyata! The RED North…
From thou comes the cold. The freezing weathers. Your winds are cleansing.
Leaves do fall, And rest under snow. We need patience and endurance!
We ask the great Spirit, To help us in tribulation.
Let us turn our pipe of peace to the earth. Invoke a blessing from heavens. And turn within, to the most sacred place.
O Wakan Tanka!
Great spirit and BLUE bird in the sky Preserve our GREEN mother earth And make my soul realize Its place and destiny in the Universe
