Spirit of Two Wolves

Oh my Dear Great Fore-Fathers,
Great Spirits Of Freedom up above,
Free Spirit in the sky, Tell us now,
What do you fore-see in this our land?

Please help us in our plight, our land is barren,
Our tree’s are dying, our food source’s are low,
We need the water of life to survive.
Oh Spirit of the Wind and Spirit of the Rain
Please give us our source of life’s treasures!

Please send us the meat we require,
Our children and old warriors are dying,
We are a desperate nation please aid us!
Oh Great Spirit of Buffalo where is our herd?

Oh Dear Spirit of “Lone Horn”
Show us how to run alongside and catch our prey,

Oh please Dear Spirits of Two Wolves,
Show us your cunning,
for catching the Big Buffalo!
I call upon all our sacred Spirits up above,
Join your forces please don’t let us die!

The Wind shall blow the Rain and bring us water!
The Tree’s will flourish, the Grass will grow!
Our Buffalo once more will reign the plains!
Our children and Warriors will be Healthy!
We will be that Strong Nation Once Again!

Thank You Oh Wise Chief’s Of All Nations
For Our Salvation

    David, it does not surprise me that you are so connected to the Tribes of Nations.. My Grandfather was 1/2 Nez Pierce out of Idaho and I have traveled the old trails trying to make sense of all that is behind us now. Your words feel like the Great Chiefs themselves are reciting them..

    Chief Joseph of the Nez Pierce once said.._
    “We live, we die, and like the grass and trees, renew ourselves from the soft clods of the grave. Stones crumble and decay, faiths grow old and they are forgotten but new beliefs are born. The faith of the villages is dust now…but it will grow again….like the trees. May serenity circle on silent wings and catch the whisper of the winds.” Chief Joseph of the Nez Perce
    Incredible work !

  • Wow lina I am stunned and in awe of your comments and I googled Chief Joseph and this is what I found -
    Chief Joseph – known by his people as In-mut-too-yah-lat-lat amazingly the music playing in the background has been one of my favourite pieces for a few years no (I can’t remember the name. I do have a few American Indian chants as I have always found peace in their music too. Thank you so much – David
