Our Medicine Way

The Earth is Unci Maka
Our Sacred Grandmother
All of our bodies are made
from the nourishing foods
from her
All of our blood connected
from the rivers
and lakes
from her
We must treat her always in a sacred manner
Walk Upon her with Gratitude & Prayer

We must honor each other as we honor 
Unci Maka and Mni Wiconi
We must see each other in a sacred manner
so that all the Universe might heal.

These are the teachings of our Ancestors
The Lakota Way and the White Mountain Way of the 
White Buffalo People given to us
in our Traditions of Healing

-Clark Rae

Ba'Cho of the Apache

Ba'Cho of the Apache 
Friend and Family
The teacher of the hunt
The teacher of the pack
I hear your howls as
I rise for my prayers
in the beauty
where night
meets the light
of the sun
rising in Grandfather Sky 
Above Grandmother Earth 
Amongst the Star Beings
My Ancestors
They watch over us
and in prayer
as our smudge
and carries our gratitude
to all beings connected
Ba'Cho of the Apache 
Hear my howl with yours
our Rising Prayers 
of the People
