"Think not of yourselves, O Chiefs.
Think of continuing generations of our families,
think of our grandchildren,
and of those yet unborn,
whose faces are coming
from beneath the ground."
in The Great Law of Peace
Encounters with Native American Spiritual Elders
by Steve Wall and Harvey Arden
"When we walk upon Mother Earth,
we always plant our feet carefully,
because we know
the faces of our future generations
are looking up at us
from beneath the ground.
We never forget them."
—Chief Oren Lyons
