The Sky People – Conclusion

Deep Woods 037

So when the elders of the people (both men and women)

tell these stories of long ago, they reach back

and bring the colors flowing through eagles,

to life. Usually Grandmothers tell the children

and grandchildren as the people gather

around the fire, that the first storm

was caused by the grey being jealous,

that people came from the sky.

And when there are festivals they paint their faces

with blue and white, reminding them of wingtips

and of course the sky. Little ones listening

many times to the message

“Never forget where you came from.”

“Don’t ever forget.”

“You are descended from eagles.”

Many have survived with these words

hidden in their hearts,

and so it is until this day.

May we never forget.

Peace and blessings to everyone.

“When we love people, we give them hope.”
