Museum Hill-#4 "Shared Knowledge

"Shared Knowledge"
Doug Hyde, 1981

Honor the sacred.
Honor the Earth, our Mother.

Honor the Elders.
Honor all with whom we
share the Earth:-
Four-leggeds, two-leggeds,
winged ones,
Swimmers, crawlers,
plant and rock people.
Walk in balance and beauty.


Native American Elder

  7. Beautiful, beautiful. I am fascinated by Native American wisdom and language. Did you know that you can hear New Mexican stories told in the Keres and Tewa languages on the website of the Office of the State Historian? Go to http://www.newmexicohistory.org/featured_projects/ and click on "Telling the Stories." The sound of the spoken words is just lovely.

  8. This time is the sun playing with the sculpture. About the quote those could be the words of both my grandmothers, grown up in the Tuscan countryside.
