Monias, and Sid Harris, and it represents the essential unity of diverse Native cultures.“The fire is the life given to us by the sun. We share this life, as relatives, with the plants and animals that nourish us and teach us about our place on this earth.“The Cree syllables say: ‘This talk together has been good.’” – taken from a piece of paper in hard copy of database.
