My Heart Soars by Dan GeorgeWhat a beautiful spiritual book that is to be read over and over again.
...When the last bears skin has been taken
and the last rams head has been mounted
and fitted with glass eyes,
We may find in them the reflection
of todays memories.
Take care, or soon our ears will strain
in vain to hear the creators song.
One thing to remember is to talk to the animals. If you do, they will talk back to you. But if you dont talk to the animals, they wont talk back to you, then you wont understand, and when you dont understand you will fear, and when you fear you will destroy the animals, and if you destroy the animals, you will destroy yourself.
My peoples memory
reaches into the beginning of all things.
Of all the teachings we receive
this one is the most important:
Nothing belongs to you
of what there is,
of what you take, you must share.

The beauty of the trees, the softness of the air, the fragrance of the grass, speaks to me. The summit of the mountain, the thunder of the sky, the rhythm of the sea, speaks to me. The faintness of the stars, the freshness of the morning, the dew drop on the flower, speaks to me. The strength of fire, the taste of salmon, the trail of the sun, And the life that never goes away, They speak to me. And my heart soars. Brilliant poetic splendour and nature that never dies and so nicely composed. Great poem, Tiffany.

And that denial becomes their illness and our own. Ethnic abuse, ethnic perpetration. We invite more such essays. Barbara Stanton, an Alaskan Godfriend, back in , sent this book to us for the Biblioteca Fioretta Mazzei , and that very day a Canadian couple visited the cemetery and the library who had actually known and worked with Chief Dan George, a quarter of a century ago. It deserves re-publication, and to be in every school library. Was it a coincidence that this book made its way to Florence and the following day, likewise, actual friends of Chief Dan George entered the library to which it had come? Rather it is a sign!
