"I went to a holy man and asked him for help. He told me to get on the Red Road. Pray to Wakan-Tanka (Great Spirit) to help you walk the Red Road."





--Dr. A.C. Ross (Ehanamani), LAKOTA





All Indian traditions, customs and ceremonies help us answer three questions: who am I?, why am I?, and where am I going? Only on the Red Road can we find the answer to these three questions. When we can answer these three questions, we are on the Red Road. When we cannot, we have gone astray. That is why the Holy Men tell us to pray to the Great Spirit and to seek the Red Road. Why am I? My purpose is the serve the Great Spirit. Who am I? I am an Indian who walks the Red Road. Where am I going? My vision is to serve my people.





Great Spirit, when I know You, only then do I know me. Help me today to know You.

 

[This elder is so right in everything he is saying..It is so important to establish a relationship with Great Spirit, as it's the only way that these questions can be answered.  shai]
